Are you using your Android to write shopping lists, and every time you need to go to the store you have to write a new list? Wouldn’t it be neat if you could select the items from a pre-established list and then tick them off throughout the day? Hungry! wants to provide you with that option. Read on to find out more.

Features & Use
Hungry! is basically a grocery shopping list for your Android phone. You can enter the items you’d like to purchase into a list, and the next time you want to go shopping for these things all you have to do is select them from your list (every new entry is added to an overall list that lists all articles).
Simply click on the articles as you’re buying them and these will disappear from your list. You can also enter each article into a category. The categories have names and different colors.
If you’re like me and you tend to use your phone to write grocery lists this app may be a time-saver in the long run.
Screen & Controls
The overall list already has several entries of articles. The overall list and the food categories are in English.
There are three tabs at the top of the display, the first being for the overall list, the second for the list of categories, and the third for your own, personalized list. In order to put new articles on your list, turn your device—a new tab that allows you to write items on your list as well as choose a category/color will appear.
Pressing Add it! will place the article on your shopping list as well as on the overall list. If you press on a category/color for a long time you can make changes to it.
If you press down for a long time when you’re in the overall list or the category list a context menu will open up. You can delete or edit items using this menu. Editing means that you can change the name of the item as well as the category it’s filed under.
If you select the article from one of the first two tabs it will be added to the third tab, your list. When you’re shopping you can click on the items and they will disappear from your list.
The menu button gives you the following options:
• Send (via SMS or email)
Which, in turn, gives you the following options:
• Release Notes
The Settings are super useful:
• User Email
• Preferred Item Height
• Main Tab (select which tab is shown when you start the app)
• Prevent sleeping
• Always show Add tab (allows you to always add items, even when you’re holding your device upright)
• Switch to Add in Landscape (displays the Add button when you turn your phone)
You can also select which tabs will be displayed:
• A-Z Tab
• Color Tab
• Top Tab (most bought articles)
• History Tab
You can also choose whether the Undo button should be displayed or not.
Hungry! is a useful app to have if you’re the type of person who goes grocery shopping a lot; if that’s the case, this app will save you a lot of time.
I’ve been typing out my shopping lists using AK Notepad, which meant that every time I went out to buy something I’d have to retype everything. Well, I won’t be needing to do that any longer!
The options listed under Settings are well chosen and allow you to configure the app according to your own preferences.
Speed & Stability
The app’s performance is absolutely impeccable; no cause for complaint.
Hungry! can be downloaded free of charge from the Market. There's also a paying version that allows you to make donations.
