    How do I reset my password?

    And how do I get the update?

    • Marvin permalink

      The update should be available for everyone. There was about a 1 hour delay from the Google Play Store before it was published. Amazon Appstore update will take a few days.

    Everything good here, no problem on update and no problem on the actual working of the app. Good job!

    Hello, love the updates, and OOM as a whole! A couple of extra features would really make this shine… namely, the ability to add items to any list via email (I use my email subject lines for this purpose, would love it if i could send it directly to OOM this way) as well as Priority levels (4 or 5 would be nice) for all lists (on my shopping and todo lists, I like things sorted alphabetically, but sometimes there are a few important things I want to stand out up top!)

    I don’t find how to create a direct shortcut to any list…. can you help me ?

    • Grayson permalink

      To create a shortcut:
      Go to one of your phone’s home screens
      Press and hold in an open area
      From the pop-up menu, choose Shortcut
      Scroll down and tap Out Of Milk
      Choose the OOM list you’d like to link to

    I’m having the same problem. Can’t find how to creat short cuts to lists?

    Thanks for your hard work with updates

        Thank for your quick response. Works great!

    I use OOM on two Android devices and the sync keeps adding items I deleted on my phone back in when I open it on my tablet. I would like to see the online lists be the authority for sync because it is difficult for me to actually delete anything.

    To create a shortcut:
    Go to one of your phone’s home screens
    Press and hold in an open area
    From the pop-up menu, choose Shortcut
    Scroll down and tap Out Of Milk
    Choose the OOM list you’d like to link to

    The excellent OOM developers should probably include instructions like that in the release notes and/or in the document where you’re directed when you choose “Learn More”

    I’m new to oom. Is there a way to link/sink the lists to google calendar so I can see both at the same time?

    • Marvin permalink

      Hello John,

      Currently there is no way to sync with Google Calendar. This may be something we consider doing in the future.

      • Azara permalink

        Just curious if any of the updates allows us to sync with google calender?

  10. Did you also update the total area for each list? I don’t remember seeing balances for Total, Coupons, & Remaining. I love that!!! Super helpful. Thanks!

  11. Dennis permalink

    Any news on an iphone version yet??

  12. Robert Rapplean permalink

    Can you tell me when you’ll get this update out for Nook?

  13. Samantha permalink

    O.m.g…..IPHONE already I mean come on. I give up

    • Chase permalink


      I’m truly, truly sorry that the IPHONE version is not ready yet. We have not given up. We are a very small team and we are working full time on the iOS version almost 24/7. It is our absolute top priority and if I could have it ready by tomorrow to give to you, I would, but unfortunately no matter how fast we work it’s just not ready yet. Please keep your eyes open for our summer iOS release.

      • Mara permalink

        I gotta say, I’m actually thrilled and impressed that you focused on the Android version first. GO, ANDROID!!!!

        • Marvin permalink

          We’re Android users ourselves, hence the focus :)

  14. Michelle permalink

    Is anyone else having a problem with the online version? When I try to edit an item on my list I can’t see the bottom of the screen (where it has the save, delete tabs) any more since the 2.6 update.

  15. Renee permalink

    I would love to see the app on the Nook updated. Any idea when that will happen?

    • Marvin permalink

      Update for the NOOK should be out now. Sorry for the delay. There’s an approval process for the NOOK, which is why it isn’t released instantly like the Google Play Store.

  16. Kevin permalink

    For the past 2 days been having alot of problems with Sync, Like it won’t sync. Having to print off list which is really getting to be a pain. Any idea when this will be fixed?

    • Marvin permalink

      Hello Kevin,

      We’re about to release an update to resolve several sync issues. In the meantime, make sure that Auto Sync is enabled, it’s a workaround for one of the issues. You can enable Auto Sync in the preferences.

    Love, love, love outofmilk. A couple of things would make the experience much better for me, though – and one at least is most likely just a how-to question.

    The categories are great. I have now got my list sorted into the aisles for the supermarket we shop at – saves so much time in the store! – though it took a while to set up. However, when I put in a new item, and go to the drop down menu, the categories are in a very random order. Given each of the categories is named starting with number, eg 05 – Softdrink and Cordial – I would have expected it to be in numerical/alphabetical order. What am I doing wrong?

    Secondly, and probably a little more complicated – the barcode function is great. I don’t even mind having to teach OoM new items – and being in Aus, so far none of my barcodes have already been in the system, which is fine. But my husband also uses out of milk on his phone, and the synch-ing is great – but it can’t use the barcodes that I have inputted, which makes it so much double handling! Please, is there anyway around this?


  18. Linda permalink

    Changes are great. Just a suggestion for a few more categories. How about adding: can, half gallon and carton for the groceries. Thanks for the update.

  19. Lynne permalink

    I got a Nexus 7 for Christmas. I chose the Out Of Milk app and downloaded it. But I do not see the bar code scanner on any of the shopping or pantry lists. What else do I need to learn?

    More later,
