It’s a familiar situation: we get to the grocery store, find a cart and start browsing the aisles, only to realize we’ve completely forgotten what we needed. iFlipTips solves that problem by enabling you to create and save multiple, customized shopping lists easily and efficiently. The note-taking app’s versatility means you can create as many lists as you want, categorizing your shopping items by store, season or any other system of your choice. Using iFlipTips as a shopping list app can help you save money by preventing impulse buying, and make your shopping trips more efficient.
Using the iTips-Ideas section of the app, you can create different categories for your lists. One way of doing this is to create different lists for different areas of your home, or different events of your life, such as birthdays, vacations, home improvement, clothing, and gardens.
Within each folder, you can create lists of items using the text box, an image or video. Not only does this help you capture all the items you need in an organized way, but it means that if you are out and find yourself in a clothing or home improvement store, you can quickly view items you’ve been meaning to purchase. This saves you having to rely on your memory, and can help make your shopping trips more efficient.
As well as creating lists of items you want to purchase now, you can use the app to capture items for a personal ‘wish list’, writing down the price of the item and the store in which you saw it, or taking a picture of it so you can view it later.
Creating these kinds of lists helps you compare prices of the same or similar products in different stores, and keep tabs on how much you’re spending. For example, if you want to purchase a new pair of jeans, you can use iFlipTips to compare the types of jeans available in different stores, and to keep track of items you like and might want to purchase in the future.
If you’re in a store and can’t decide what to buy, iFlipTips enables you to share your notes via email, on Facebook, or over Twitter, so you can ask for input from friends and family about the price, style and fit of an item before you buy.
The flashcard system used by iFlipTips is perfect for researching which items you want to buy before you go shopping. For example, if you’re going to a department store, you can create a detailed shopping list beforehand, even specifying the brand, color and size of a specific items, helping you speed up your trip when you get there.
The iFlipTips app’s folders system enables you to categorize your shopping items into different areas. If you’re going out and plan to visit several different stores, try creating a folder or sub-folder for each individual store, so you know what you’re purchasing in advance.
