Just Shopping, a handy new Windows Phone app that's free for the time being

The developers of the Night Stand Clock have a new Windows Phone app in the Store designed to make your shopping trips a little easier. Just Shopping is a Windows Phone shopping list generator that lets you create, manage and delete your shopping lists with ease.  Be it a grocery list, a shopping list for the hardware store, a Christmas list for the wife or kids, or a shopping list for the weekend football party.

Just Shopping's interface is clean, simple, and lends itself rather nicely to one-handed operation. The app comes across as a nifty shopping app for our Windows Phones and is worth a gander.

Just Shopping will launch to the shopping list you were last using and to create a new list, you'll need to go to the List Page by tapping the "show list" button at the bottom of the screen.  I like that the app returns to the list you were last using in that if you have to leave the app while shopping, you can quickly get back to where you left off.

To create a list you will need to tap on the "+" button at the bottom of the Lists Page, type in the name of your list, choose an icon and color and you're ready to start building your list. 

From the individual shopping list page you have a text entry field at the top of the screen where you enter your shopping items. Just Shopping has an auto-complete feature that will toss up predictive tiles for shopping items as you type.  Just tap on the tile of the item you want to add to the list (or finish typing). But be careful, the auto-complete suggestions can be rather tempting and may cause your list to grow rather long.

As you shop and snatch items from the store shelves, tapping the item on your list will strike through it. If you pull down on the list, it will clear any struck through item. I can see this feature coming in handy with those lengthy grocery store lists to help you focus on what you need to be looking for.

Just Shopping makes a nice, first impression as a simple, easy to use shopping list app. Just Shopping is currently being offered as a free app to celebrate its first week of release. After next week, Just Shopping will cost you $1.99.

You can find Just Shopping here in the Windows Phone Store. It is compatible with both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices.
