Coolest Gadgets - reporting on the latest cool gadgets UK Bill Would Outlaw Open Public Wifi Hotspots - WiFi - Gizmodo GroceryIQ 2: Shopping in the Cloud I wrote a review of GroceryIQ just over a year ago and I have continued to use it frequently. The new GroceryIQ 2 expands on the original concept by taking advantage of the power of a connected mobile device that can tap into the cloud. These significant improvements have pushed the app from “frequently used” to “indispensable” on my own iPhone. I’ll run down the features for you and then share some comments from the developer on how the cloud and the iPhone have come together to create great software. What’s New in Version 2 The big update in version 2 is list syncing between multiple iPhones. GroceryIQ 2 also adds some features related to its acquisition by Coupons.com. The gee-whiz feature in this release is barcode scanning to add items to your shopping list. Frankly, I love this app because it actually makes shopping easier than using pencil and paper. Jason Boehle from Coupons.com Tell me about how you decided on the feature list for Version 2. How is list sharing implemented?
