Out of Milk for iPhone

by Marvin on January 6th, 2013

We’re happy to announce that Out of Milk for iPhone is now available on the App Store! Households members who have either Android or iPhone can now sync lists. Head to the App Store to download or just search for “out of milk” on your phone. Don’t forget to spread the word to your friends and family on iPhone!

A few things to note regarding the iPhone version:

  • It requires iOS 6 and up. We ran into some issues that prevented the app from running on iOS 5.x even though that was our initial goal.
  • It runs on the iPad and iPad mini but isn’t quite optimized for their display yet.
  • Two Android features are missing but we’re working on them for the next release: adding items from history and sending lists by email or text.

  1. Love Out of Milk app for Android….got a new iphone5 was glad to see the app for iphone however really would like to see the text the list, which comes in handy when someone other than you doing the shopping any idea when the update will be

  2. When will the app be optimized for the iPad? Thanks,

  3. Sharing between android and iPhone devices does not seem to work

    It is very unfortunate that the app won’t run under iOs 5. I know tons of people who have not updated because of the maps mess and other issues. So I fear that this will prevent a lot of users from downloading it and the app will probably receive some bad rating because of it (even though that is not completely fair).
    Still, nice to see that it’s finally out!

      Thats my case. I have iOS 5 and won’t update cause I’ve had other iPhones and I know updating firmware delays performance. However my heart fmdrops when I find some great apps such as this one won’t work in my version on the 4S iPhone . Cheers and looking forward to flexibility,, and an iPad version..! I have it on my iPad but well it looks very big. However AWESOME APP!!!!

    So love OOM!! Have on my Nook and android phone. But my husband just got a new Nokia phone with Windows8 and can’t get it!! Major drag!! Any chance you’ll be making a version compatible to Windows8?

  6. Katiejay permalink

    Thank You so much for coming out with this app for iphone. I could not find another as good as this one :)

  7. atwinny permalink

    Please, make it for ios 5. I have Ipad 1 and can’t use your app.

  8. Nino permalink

    Been waiting on this finally!!!! Thank you!

  9. Mel permalink

    Great to get it for the iPhone – now me and my husband can have synchronised shopping lists. Was wondering whether it would be possible in future updates to have the option of setting minimum amounts for pantry lists that would automatically add an item to a shopping list if it goes below the minimum quantity? Thanks

    Outstanding app !! Congratulations !!

    After unlocking my ATT avail and blowing out all the bloatware to save the limited memory (400 megs) …. It was time to prioritize what I wanted to keep and what was just space hogging junk … needless to say I kept this one at the top of my list to SAVE !!

    Love how you brought together .. tying the computer at home and the smartphone … and the scanner for products in the store … all and all a well thought out app that has saved me valuable time !! (at 67 it’s worth more then money)

    Many thanks !!

    Thank you for finally getting Out of Milk on IOS. I tried numerous shopping lists and they all lacked the elegance and simplicity of OoM. I even got my wife back to using a shared shopping list because of your app.

    Comment: Why the price shopping list on the bottom of the screen on my mobile? It is unnecessary and takes up space. I paid for the app but that would be a good place for you guys to instead post ads for those who do not pay.

    I’m glad that OOM for ios6 is finally out, but disappointed it won’t work on ios5. Maps are more important on my iphone and my ipad is version 1. At least the delays releasing OOM for iPhone mean that I’ve tested ‘Our Groceries’, which is quickly catching up with OOM for features and ease of use. I recommend that any others disappointed by OOM not being available check it out. Hopefully though, OOM will reconsider and release an ios5 version.

  13. Kyle permalink

    Was considering this app but I’m concerned about compatibility. I have an Android device and my better half has an iPhone. Can we use it on our separate devices and have it synchronise lists?

    • Marie Shively permalink

      My significant other has an Android and I have IPhone and it works fine between them.

  14. Barbara Gliszinski permalink

    i loved this when i had my droid & was sad when i got my Iphone5 that it wasn’t available i tried all different ones but none could do what this does so thanks for having it now for the iphone

  15. Mark permalink

    @justin: thanks for the tip with ‘OurGroceries’ which is doing totally what I was looking for and it only requires iOS 3.x and up.
    I’ll happily switch back to OOM as soon as they lower the iOS 6 requirement but until then it is a good alternative.

  16. Ellen permalink

    I loved your app on my android but now I have Nokia phone with Windows 8. Is there an app for that?

  17. Sally permalink

    Looking forward to an iPad-optimized version. We just stuck an iPad in our kitchen, but unfortunately it’s too hard to use OoM on it — hoping it comes out soon so we can switch back.

  18. Cynthia permalink

    Please optimize the display for the iPad. Thanks.

  19. Banjo permalink

    I just got given an iPad 4 and one of the first things I checked the market for was ‘Out Of Milk’, as I use it regularly on my Android Galaxy 7 Tab. I was thrilled to see it’s available on Apple’s device, though I agree that an iPad resolution version would be fantastic. I was also very surprised to see that I didn’t need to buy the app a second time, as Apple’s market seems a lot more “everything costs and is expensive” compared to Google Play! Wonderful to see this app doing so well, and so glad I supported by getting the paid Android version (was one of those who begged for an outside-US one-time payment and bought when the devs listened!). Keep up the great work, folks!

  20. Joshua permalink

    Great app. One feature that would make it significantly better would be the ability to select whether completed items are displayed. If that can’t be done, you could alter the sort preferences to enable first sorting by completion and then by category (completed items for all categories display at the bottom, by catergory).

  21. Angelo permalink

    I have a 4S and iOS 6.1.2. Just found OOM and was happy it was available for iPhone. Playing with it while setting up my kitchen pantry items, it seems that it has everything we need to stay organized and can easily move items between the pantries and the shopping lists. However, I’m not sure how such a simple thing was overlooked… but how is it not possible to search a list? If I’ve got over 100 things in the pantry, even if they are organized into categories, 3 different people may not categorize things the same way. It would be wonderful if you could just type “pudding” and every item that has the word pudding in it would show up (scanning the UPC codes into my pantry list, I have 9 different Jell-O and Great Value puddings)! To find them scattered through the list (even if they are all under the Desserts category I created), it is still easy to miss that I may already have 3 different vanilla puddings.

    Please please please add a search feature!

  22. Cherry's permalink

    Really love the app. When are you going to make the newest release have the deals capabilities outside of the US.

  23. Harlee permalink

    I’m really looking for an app to keep an accurate record of my inventory. My son put toothpaste on my wunderlist shopping list, I bought 3 tubes only to get home and find another 4 I’d already bought. Does this have a scan out system so I can keep track?

    iOS7 problems. Keyboard doesn’t close properly. scrolling is very problematic. This has rendered the app almost unusable. Please help, my wife and I use this program for almost everything in the way of lists and reminders.

  36. There was a lot of nervous laughter and jokes about not knowing what to
    expect. They are great places to find furniture, and when you live on a budget like we do, every chance you get
    to save a little money is great. When you place it flat on
    the board, you need to check it occasionally if the paint underneath it is bubbling already.

  37. Yes! This is exactly what is was trying to find. Have been looking around for a
    time now, and eventually I found this. Thanks a-lot for writing
    this website post. You truly diid a terrific job here together with
    your website. I will keep following this website.

    Brave, on the other hand, is consistently funny,
    tense, and subtly touching throughout. Andrew Bacevich, a
    retired Army colonel teaching at Boston University thinks, “If we are going to pursue the global war on terror, and if that means circumstances like Iraq won’t be one of a kind, we don’t have enough soldiers to get the job done.

  40. Hello to every body, it’s my first pay a quick visit of this website; this website consists of awesome and truly
    good stuff in support of visitors.

  41. I’m curious to find out what blog platform you are using?

  42. We also offer frequent in-game events on top of weekly updates to the game.
    Ob man sich ein eigenes Gehöft erbauen möchte, einen Flughafen oder einen Ponyhof,
    es sieht so aus, als ob für jedes erdenkliche Bedürfnis ein Browser Game gibt.

    Wer ein Online Game online spielt wird auf diese Weise rasch den Kontakt zu Verbündete finden, da in diesen Online Games ist
    immer ein sehr rudimentäre Nachrichtenprogramm enthalten, mit dem leicht Verbindung
    zu Verbündetetn aufnehmen kann. It can be totally frustrating being stuck at a particular
    point, so before you put your fist through the screen, have a look to see whether anyone has been kind enough to offer some help.

  43. Wonderful article! This is the type of info that should be shared around the net.
