ZipList: Your Grocery Shopping and Meal Planning App

The days of writing down recipes and grocery lists with paper and pen are quickly fading. With today’s technology and the ZipList app, grocery shopping and meal-planning have never been easier.

ZipList can locate and organize over 300,000 online recipes and transfer ingredients that need to be purchased to a shopping list with one touch of a button. But more than just a list, the app organizes the items by where they would be found in a grocery store, saving you even more time.

During its first year in 2010, the DC-based company gained popularity quickly and was overwhelmed by partner interests. As a result, they have been providing consumer interactive capabilities for major bloggers and partner sites, including The Food Network, Simply Recipes, Skinny Taste, Southern Plate and Martha Stewart.

Another great feature of Ziplist: To help avoid human shopping errors (forgetting items, buying the wrong one of something), the ZipList app lets you consolidate and share information through your mobile devices.

“It’s a great feature to be able to share recipes and grocery lists with family and friends,” said CEO Geoff Allen. “A common statement we hear from satisfied users is ‘If it’s not on ZipList, it doesn’t get purchased.’”

With over one million users, it is no wonder that ZipList recently announced they are being acquired by mega publisher Condé Nast.  If you’re ready to simplify your life in the kitchen, download the free Ziplist iPhone or Android app today.
