You’ve probably seen them before, wandering aimlessly through the aisles of the market trying to remember what they were there to buy. Some of them even have a tiny scrap of paper that they squint at as they attempt to read hastily jotted notes representing themselves as a “shopping list.” It’s happened to me, it’s probably happened to you, but if we just went and downloaded the Divvy app, it’ll unlikely to ever happen again.
The Divvy app provides an elegant solution to the shopping list dilemma by creating what is essentially a cloud-based shared workspace that group members can edit and update. In other words, when any member of the family spots that the household is out of something, all they need to do is open the Divvy app and add the item to the list. This gets updated through the cloud so anyone that opens the list afterward will see it there. This means that whoever winds up at the store can just check the list from their phone and never miss another item. As you make your way through the store and fill your cart, simply check off the items in the list.
The app can also be used for maintaining office supplies, cleaning products and more. In other words, small businesses can coordinate supply management duties in a much more efficient way. Divvy can be loaded with quantity and cost information, which makes it a handy tool to analyze home and business shopping expenses. Executives can also build lists for specific business trips to better organize their expense reports for submission.
Once you have created a list, you can invite other app users to access it. The list is synced with all the members of the group so that changes can be viewed in real-time. There is no limit to the number of lists or groups you can create. As such, you have a list for household items with family members in the group and another one for your office expenses that you can share with co-workers.
Divvy has a feature called a “Pantry” which can help track usage of items. This is especially helpful for consumable household products. The Pantry can help you to track the progress of the items in your cupboard. It can then send you a reminder when a specific item is running out.
The app even has a feature called Smart Notification that notify you when you are passing near a store that sells the item you are running out of. This not only makes tracking your supplies easy, but replenishing them as well.
Overall, the Divvy app has the potential to make shopping lists more functional and change the way we manage our household needs. The app is currently scheduled to be released as a beta version, but no specific date has been set at this time. However, if you want to be included in the beta test, you can sign up on Divvy’s website and receive updates as they come in.

There may be c lot more duties and responsibilities
an internet developer might need to perform,
which often is based upon the need for the project he is working on. Web developers play with a very crucial role in the economy today.
While they need to be able to communicate efficiently to be able
to understand what is needed to find the task
done, almost all of their job is completed. Backend web developers utilize coding languages
to be certain all the features in the site actually do the job.
As of 1/8/2017, unable to find their website to sign up for beta program [old sites are no longer theirs]. Too bad, have been looking for an alternative to fivefly’s Shopping List http://www.fivefly.net/ShoppingList/Index and this seems to be a contender. For years I have tried to get fivefly to add a browser based interface, hopefully your Resident SnapMunk Tech-head will update this article.

I like the fact that I can sync the app with another user, like my wife, and that changes are made in real-time. That is a great feature!
Mandy Owens says
I like to use my smartphone as a shopping list so this will work perfectly for me.
Kara Welch says
I have just started using my smartphone in this way. This post could not have come at a better time. Thank you for posting about this application, it seems like it will be very helpful.

Another shopping app? If this one works the way you wrote about, it would change things up a little bit. I will keep an eye open for this one.
