Out of Milk 3.1 Is Out + iOS Beta Begins

by Marvin on September 27th, 2012

We’re excited to announce the release of version 3.1. This is mainly a maintenance release for Android that fixes some issues and brings back the old and familiar list design as a standalone theme. Here’s what’s new in this release:

  • Some of our users really liked the old theme and were sad to see it go, so we’ve brought it back as a standalone theme. To enable the old design, go to Settings > Customizations > Themes, and select the ‘Classic’ theme.
  • Opening a list is now much faster than before.
  • Fixed a couple of  compatibility issues with newer Android devices.

We’d also like to talk a bit about the upcoming iPhone release. Yes, it’s coming. We’ve wrapped up development and are looking for beta testers. This is not for the faint of heart, so we don’t recommend it for everyone, especially those who hold their lists dear. There is a possibility you may lose your list. Signup here for our iOS beta and we will contact you soon with instructions.

PS: Amazon & NOOK Apps will be updated in the next few days with this release. Those App Stores require that the update go through an approval process before being available.

Update: If you are experiencing crashes, please update to version 3.1.2. This fixes the crashes. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Now the program crashes all the time when it tries to sync, get error crash-message all the time now with the new patch on my SIII

      Hello Mikael,

      Apologies for the crashes. We released a new version, 3.1.2, shortly after that which fixes the issue you are seeing. If you could update to that version, it should fix the issue for you. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

  2. I am in Portugal and bar codes must be different in each country. This is what makes the use of your programme so attractive and easy. Could you offer the option to buy the bar codes for the country you are in?

    How do you put the sales tax in so it calculates properly?

    • Elaine permalink

      To add tax: in ‘Settings’ there is a clickable option called ‘Sales Tax’ (under the heading ‘Shopping List Preferences’). A pop-up will come up where you can type your tax.

      Now I would like to know how to see my price list and sub/totals on my phone (I can see it online, but not on my android). Anyone know how to do this?

      • Troy permalink

        Tax is not working. I enter .0825 and I expected it to calculate that times each dollar but all it does is add 3 cents to any total.WTF?

    How do I put the sales tax in to get it to calculate it properly?

    Why does the history of what you scan have to be so complicated? You scan something and it creates a record with the code, then, when you edit it at the same time you scan it, like adding the price, it creates another record with the code and the price and the one with a code and a price of 0. I understand this for the price history, but it is crazy that I have to go in weekly and clean up my history. Maybe that could be the next thing you give to us pro users who paid for what everyone is getting for free now. I really do love this app and use it every day. So far the manage history issue is the only complaint I have that really aggravates me.

    just started not being able to sync to my husbands phone. We have had this for a while and no problems. We both have v3.1.2. I also changed google to chrome. Is that the problem and how can I fix this. We have done regular sync and sync all.

    When do you expect that iOS beta testers will be notified whether they have been chosen? I am a long-term user of the paid version on Android and have recommended OOM to many friends. However, I have recently had to change to an iphone for work and really miss OOM. I’ve had a few culinary problems since switching to the iphone because I’ve gotten half way through cooking a meal only to discover that I was out of something that I had previously tracked using the spice rack.
    Currently I have nothing, so the risk of losing my lists is still better than having nothing at all or having to learn a new app. Presumably the iOS version will, by the time it goes public, be able to sync with Android?

    Thanks for bringing back the “classic” legal pad theme with the coffee stain! I missed it. : )

    Hi,

    I enjoy your excellent app Out Of Milk in my S3 :-)

    But I have a couple of suggestions;

    Make it possible to just delete item from shopping list with short tap!

    And make it possible for the app to prevent the phone turning off the screen and lock!

    If you do that, it would be GREAT!!!

    Best regards

    Today is 10/17/12 and still no update at the Amazon App Store. Can you light a fire under Amazon and get them to approve the 3.1.2 update.

    I love this app and use it daily. I especially like being able to catagorize the items so they’re grouped like the store. I do have a suggestion, though. We should be able to edit an item’s category online under manage history instead of having to do one at a time on the phone app. I have a very large history list which makes it a very tedious and time-consuming process. Can you make full edit capabilities in your next web version? Or maybe allow for adding multiple items to a category at once? That would be wonderful :) Thanks for a great app!!

  12. Hi. You have such a great app here. I can share with hubby and on my PC.

    My question to you is… On my Nook, I have the ability to change note pads and other things are upgraded but my PC doesn’t have the “upgrade” app.

    Is there an upgrade for the PC? On my nook I can change note pad appearance and “sinc” with other family members who have the same app. Please let me know.

    Thanks for making something that is so very, very useful!

  13. I love the app – been using it well over a year. But why is it always running as a service? I don’t have it set to automatically sync, and I don’t have a widget. It’s there on boot up, even if I haven’t opened it

    Thanks

    I wish you bring “Add from history” to the top when the menu is clicked because that is the most used menu item in the menu and others like “Share list” is not used that often.
    and the next one should be Mange history in the list.
    Thank you

  15. Since you’re doing a beta test fir the iPhone, will it be available for the iPad, also? Would love it for my iPad. Don’t have an iPhone.

  16. Kristi Cooper permalink

    I am with Kay … how about an iPad application. The app for Android just sucks the life out of your phone … would be great to have the app for iPad!! That is my device of choice!!

  17. Kevin Ricketts permalink

    When do you expect to release the iPhone compatible version?

  18. I just love Out of Milk. Use it all the time. People just don’t leave enough purely positive messages. Suggestions are great and helpful, but I want to make sure you know how appreciated this app is! Thank you.

    I can’t wait for you to make the Windows 8 ap for this. Since my next phone and tablet are going to be Windows 8, it’s kinda important to me that this is done (no pressure haha). I positively love this ap!

    Batch scanning would be a nice feature to add. Leave the scanner up so we can just keep scanning items without having to retap the icon to get back to the scanner.

  21. Pere permalink

    Just another one waiting for the IOS version.

    Please give us a launching date

  22. J Dawson permalink

    I finally got an understanding of how this app works. Your tutorial is not very good. You tube infor needs updating. it tool too long to figure out what you said was intutive. But I am happy now that I know what i am doing. I will use it more. I hope it simplifies my life.

  23. Sue permalink

    Sync isn’t working at all. All suggested fixes didn’t work. App has become useless. Please fix
    Droid 4.0.4
    Thank you

  24. Valerie permalink

    Thank you so much for this app. My husband has been using it for a while and has been encouraging me to use it as well. We now share our lists and sync with each other’s phones as well as PCs. I want to add my appreciation to his. Keep up the great work!

  25. Brian permalink

    Any update on the iOS version?

  26. I just started using the website to add items to my lists and to manage categories. So far I am very disappointed. The items entered on the website are not showing up on my phone and the categories created are just sitting at the bottom of the list. I can’t click on them or do anything with them. And on the website the categories are splitting up my list which screws up the sorting. The categories should only show up if you choose to sort by Category. Also, what is up with some of the links on this website? If I click on Help or Support I get an error on my browsers.

  27. Amy permalink

    This app is amazing! I filled out my list via copy and past online, thinking ok now to sync..and no syncing required there it was on my samsung!

    What a amazing free app…seriously 5 stars!

  28. John G permalink

    Great app. Need better instructions. clear info on how to get to by pc. I like.

    GPS location info could be used in conjunction with online tax databases to get correct sales tax rate. The databases probably cost money, so this would most likely have to be available in the paid version only.

    Just came from shopping with out-of-milk. Following things were kind of annoying:

    1. On my slow xperia active, the display keeps flipping horisontal/vertical all the time, and I have to wait for it to update to read the list
    2. It would be nice if the screen would not lock so quickly, or better still not at all while shopping.

    The android version is quite slick. I’d love an iPad version that didn’t require iOS 6. Are you really doing things that won’t work on 5?

  32. Daniel permalink

    Really was looking forward to having this app on my first gen IPAD since I use it daily on my Android (4.1.2) Galaxy SII. I was very disappointed when I could not install the app due to minimum iOS requirement of 6.0. Apple, in their infinate wisdom, did not push the iOS 6 update to the first gen IPADs and now leaving us in the cold when it comes to trying to install any new apps.
