Out of Milk will kick tons of users off the service, here's what you need to know

Out of Milk will kick tons of users off the service, here's what you need to know

There are plenty of apps to help you remember what to buy from the supermarket. Some people, like me, like to have everything in a single place and use to-do list apps to keep track of what they need to buy. There are also more specific apps, like Bring or Out of Milk, that focus specifically on making grocery shopping easier. The latter, however, just got bought by an American company that doesn't want to deal with users outside of the US and Canada.

Out of Milk, the popular shopping list app, just added support for Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant

There are a lot of shopping list apps out there, and that's an understatement. Back in the early days of app development, shopping lists were one of the most popular simple projects, and even now people learning the ropes typically toss one together. But Out of Milk has stood the test of time for the last seven years. And now managing your shopping list is getting just a bit more convenient via the new Out of Milk voice assistant, which works with both Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant.

Popular shopping list app Out of Milk gets acquired by Retale

Popular shopping list app Out of Milk gets acquired by Retale

Remembering what we want to buy when going shopping is a problem that plagues many members of the human race, so naturally, we use apps to fill that gap. Of the most popular of said apps is Out of Milk, an Android-only application which has just been acquired by Retale, which will nearly double the latter's userbase in the process.

Retale, if you're unaware, is a "provider of mobile-first shopping experiences" in the US. Its app features deals, coupons, vouchers from large brick-and-mortar stores, plus the ability to follow your favorite retailers. Presumably, Retale thought it would be easier to purchase an existing shopping list app instead of making one from scratch (in today's bloated, cramped app environment, it's probably a fair assumption), and Out of Milk came out on top.

And The 3 Best Out Of Milk Giveaway Comments Are...

And The 3 Best Out Of Milk Giveaway Comments Are...

Remember our Out of Milk giveaway? Come on, it was like, a few days ago. If you don't, we gave away 25 copies of the Pro version of this absolutely fantastic shopping and pantry organization app to the comments here and on Google+ that we enjoyed the most. Here they are.

From "Klaus with a "K"" in the post comments:

“Honey? We're out of milk. – again!”

When milk is what you need
and shopping warnings were not heed
Then You, my friend, are out of luck
and in the doghouse surely stuck

You need to shop with care
and plan your trip with flair

Can’t decipher illegible doodles
will end you up buying noodles

Don’t bring home salami
knowing everyone eats pastrami

And when all that’s needed is a bit of oats
you better not come rolling home with goats

No listed item should be carelessly omitted
or for sure you will be deemed nit-witted.

Shopping lists. If you're in charge of food for a house with a lot of people, or just like to cook, they are a necessary evil.

How much do I need? Do I have some of that chicken left in the freezer? Is there enough cayenne left in that bottle for this recipe? You get the idea. Out of Milk aims to solve these problems and more - it's an app devoted (almost) solely to the organization of your food purchases and pantry stock.

Lists, Lists, Lists

OK, so just how much better can you make organizing a shopping list? I've always gone the route of copying/pasting ingredients from recipes into an e-mail, so I know just how much I need and know that my list is complete.
