Jotalicious is a beautifully-designed shopping assistant that turns plain text lists into color-coded checklists of awesome.
It works the way a shopping assistant on your phone should – you create lists just like you are jotting a note to yourself and Jotalicious organizes your lists into sortable, taggable checklists. When Jotalicious finds the name of a place next to an item in your list – for example, "Fresh Herbs @Farmers Market" – it automatically tags and adds the item to a virtual shopping list for that place too.
If typing is just too old school for you, use your device's voice dictation* feature to speak your lists into Jotalicious – say the phrase, "New Line" to separate each item on your list and Jotalicious does the rest.
It's good to share, and with Jotalicious it's even better. Jotalicious is on the spot with AirDrop, AirPrint, text message, and email sharing support. You can send text copies of your lists to anyone or you can share a "jot", which can be imported, complete with tags, by other Jotalicious users. And all of those text lists people send you – or lists you find on your favorite blog or elsewhere – can be pasted into Jotalicious to create new lists effortlessly – just copy text and paste awesome!
Jotalicious is shopping list bliss – after you dictate, paste, or jot your first list, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.
(*NOTE: Voice Dictation is not available on all devices. If your device supports voice dictation, you will see a microphone icon next to the spacebar when your device displays a keyboard.)
The applications Jotalicious was published
in the category Shopping on 2013-11-07 and
was developed by Erik Eggleston.
The file size is 3.08 MB.
The current version is 1.1 and works well on
9.0 and high ios versions.
This update offers better support for larger screen sizes and lets those of you with 3D Touch peek into the lists from the overview screen. In addition, this update adds the ability to search for an item or list the main list screen and the all items screen respectively.
I am a crazy list maker. I love them. I have tried many list apps and I LOVE this one. I love the dictation ability. It is straightforward and I think if the developer keeps updating it will only grow with you.
I have tried a lot of apps for shopping (primarily grocery), and, in my experience, Jotalicious beats them all, hands down. I love that I can put all of my shopping trips and lists in one place and not have to delete anything each time. And, when I had a question, the developers were quick and courteous. This app is worthy of five stars, but there are two things I hope the developers will change. The first is that the instructions are not very good, and what I could find in the way of help is sorely lacking. I have used this app for almost two years without ever really understanding how terrific it really is. Through dumb luck, I figured out just how good this app truly is. Granted, there are probably a lot of other people who could have figured out this app much quicker than I did. But, not everybody thinks the same and not everybody is intuitive when it comes to apps (apparently, I am one of those, lol). #2: It would be a great help to me if the app could tell me how much I am spending on just the items I still need; currently, it includes EVERY item for which I have entered a price in the app. Not helpful. Idea: When using a Places list (e.g., Costco), it would be very helpful if the two figures at the top of the screen (the "purchased of" amounts) were controlled by the All, Got It, and Need It buttons. So, if I go into my Costco list and tap Need It, those two figures at the top would change to reflect solely the prices of the items still showing. Likewise, tapping All or Got It would do the same for those two lists, respectively. I like to know how much money I am spending each time I go to the store. With this feature, I would gladly rate Jotalicious a 10 (and if that were possible).

I really like this app. Input is simple, but you can add lots of info if you want. The only feature it's missing (5th star) is syncing with someone else. Yes, I can share a list, but that's not the same as having it update when I think of something after I've sent it. We also can't each add to a list.
I have given it a quick test and so far it looks to be just what I want it simple voice dictated and beautiful in one package. I hope that when I feel like writing my next review on this app thatit will continue to live up to its claims, my initial impressions and continue to improve. But for now, i'm very impressed. Thank you developer for a nice, intuitive, attractive and most of all useful app.
Thank you so much for this update!! I use this app everyday and love the new features.
I have had this on my phone for 6 months but I have not used it because I can't figure out how it works. The video to explain it jumps right in with the assumption that you already know how to do the first 3 or more steps. And he talks fast too. So I'm lost right away. Help! I'd really like to use this app. If I could learn how it works I bet it would be great.
This app not only feels at home on iOS 7 but it is also a better list app than Reminders.app. My favorite feature is the ability to easily dictate a list with multiple items using Siri. I'm looking forward to the day when this app syncs with my other devices.
I do enjoy this app and the feature of cutting and pasting your ingredients to make a list is awesome. I also like the store sorting feature. There is one thing I wish this app had to make it my Go To list making app: Syncing over the cloud so I can start a list on my iPad and then take my iphone to the store! Without this feature it is not very useful to me. I have seen developers listen to feedback of others so I hope this feature is added soon!
