Google's built-in price tracking for Chrome is inching closer to reality

Google's built-in price tracking for Chrome is inching closer to reality

It's no secret that we're constantly looking for ways to save our hard-earned cash when we purchase things. While there are plenty of resources to help us hunt for deals, it still requires a bit of work on our end to find the best prices. Thankfully, Google has been working to bring a price tracker to Chrome for Android, and with a future update, it could be even easier to find products at their best prices.

Yummly now tailors its recipe suggestions based on what's in your pantry

Yummly now tailors its recipe suggestions based on what's in your pantry

Yummly has been, and continues to be, my favorite cookbook and recipe manager app. I love browsing the app for suggestions and ideas, but I also like digging into different ways to prepare a certain dish then combine them all for my own version. Until now, my two biggest complaints were the inability to make personal notes or recipes, as well as the lack of an option to search by ingredients. The second issue has become moot as the app just added a proper pantry manager and search filter.

Google Assistant's shopping lists should soon work again with Google Keep

Google Assistant's shopping lists should soon work again with Google Keep

It's been a few months since I shared my list of 10 things I wished Google Home would do, and in the time since, three of these have come true and two were sort of working already and have been improved. One more item could soon become a reality, and it's the one we've all been asking for in the past months: Google Keep integration with Assistant.

Google Assistant (Express) shopping list adopts a new interface with images and better swipe actions

Google Assistant (Express) shopping list adopts a new interface with images and better swipe actions

Google Assistant's shopping list is probably one of the most loathed features of the service. Google didn't do it any favors when it forced users to adopt the new web-based Express interface instead of having the list in Keep, and the hatred has kept spewing since then. I'm sure some of you like it, some are indifferent to it, others use it because they have to, and others wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. Today's news won't convince the latter to give it a go, but if you belong to the first three categories, there's a new interface to feast your eyes and fingers on.

Google Home v1.27 includes several cosmetic changes and shortcuts, smaller APK, and hints at new devices and reversible controls [APK Teardown]

Google Home v1.27 includes several cosmetic changes and shortcuts, smaller APK, and hints at new devices and reversible controls [APK Teardown]

The latest Google Home update is rolling out with a handful of small-ish changes. Some of them are mostly cosmetic, and a few others are convenient links to matching features normally found in the Google app. A teardown also turned up some vague teases for new devices. There is also a new setting for devices that have reversible controls, but it's not clear if that's live for anything yet.

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

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.

Google Assistant's new shopping list is live, here's how it works

Google Assistant's new shopping list is live, here's how it works

When Google Assistant was first introduced, you could ask it to add items to your personal shopping list. This would create a note called 'Google Assistant shopping list' in Google Keep, and you could easily manage your list from the Keep app (or web app). It makes sense that your shopping list would be in the same app as your notes, right?

Apparently not to Google, because two days ago, a support article was updated to say the shopping list is moving out of Keep. Why? Because the new list ties into Google Express, so you can order what you need in fewer steps.

Google Assistant's shopping list is moving out of Keep and into the Home app on April 10

Google Assistant's shopping list is moving out of Keep and into the Home app on April 10

I love having the Google Assistant shopping list in Keep. It means that I can access it whenever I want on the phone and the web, add items to it, and share it with my fiancé while we're in the process of furnishing our apartment. It also means that we don't have to worry about using another app: everything we need is organized in Keep and so is our shopping list.

But that's about to change soon, very soon, like this-Monday soon. A new notice is showing up for users when they open up their Google Assistant Shopping List in Keep telling them that changes are afoot.

Bring! Shopping List Comes To Android, Complete With Wear Support

Bring! Shopping List Comes To Android, Complete With Wear Support

One of the biggest issues my wife and I have is remembering what to get at the grocery store. We've tried shared spreadsheets, various list applications, and jotting stuff down on paper. Nothing sticks. We either forget to do it or just don't want to deal with hassle (thus is the case with most apps). Bring! may change that. Hopefully, anyway.

Basically, it's a super simple, and seemingly intuitive shopping list app. There doesn't seem to be any sort of absurd learning curve with Bring, which I definitely appreciate. No one wants to spend 20 minutes of their day learning how to use a stupid list app.

[New App] Popular 'Buy Me A Pie!' Grocery List App Now Available For Android, Can Remember More Than Dessert

[New App] Popular 'Buy Me A Pie!' Grocery List App Now Available For Android, Can Remember More Than Dessert

There are many powerful to-do list apps out there that can be used to help you remember the milk, but given the sheer number of features they provide, relying on these apps for such a singular purpose could feel like overkill. Even the somewhat barebones Google Keep may come with more weight than someone needs for their weekly shopping runs. If you want an app that just strives to do one thing - in this case, be a shopping list - and do that thing well, then you may want to consider Buy Me a Pie!, the latest popular iOS app that has made its way over to Android.
