I don’t know about you, but I’m not a fan of grocery shopping. It’s tedious, you have to deal with people blocking your way in nearly every aisle, and it’s just a hassle, plain and simple.

Consmr wants to answer those questions and more with their new iOS app, giving you all the reviews and recommendations we expect of online shopping without resorting to a bunch of hit-or-miss Googling. The question is whether this little app can pack the one-two punch of the reviews found on retailer sites combined with a large catalog of products. So does it? Hit the jump to find out. (more…)

Today we’ll go over what Grocery IQ is and why it stands out as one of the best shopping lists applications on the App Store. If you ever take your iPhone shopping, you’ll want to keep reading!
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting EATouch. The developer describes EATouch as follows:
EATouch is the shopping list fast and illustrated: with few taps you can choose from more than 200 products, build your list and go to the supermarket of confidence to start buying. Checking products already in the cart, you can easily shake your iPhone to find out what you have not purchased.
