When I make my list of grocery items I need to buy, I typically use the Notes app on my iPhone. I already use it to keep track of a bunch of other items and notes, so it's somewhat convenient, but it is somewhat annoying when I'm standing in the grocery store and deleting items one by one as I place them into my shopping cart.
Recently in my review of bootcamp materials, I've been covering localStorage, and I thought, why don't I create a grocery checklist for my local device? I could totally use it when I'm grocery shopping! I know there are other grocery shopping apps out there already, but hey, it never hurt to recreate something for good practice.
I wanted to start out with something simple — an app where users can enter and save items, and then delete them with a single tap.
|DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS?|
|I have found that this app works just fine with saving and retrieving data when I use it from my laptop. However, when I create a list from my iPhone, the data disappears when I close my browser. I'm not sure why this happens — does closing out a browser on my phone automatically clear the cache? Perhaps it's a setting on my phone? I would love to hear any tips if anyone thinks they know why.|
Right now, this app is very simple, but I'd like to work on it further down the line to allow for grouping of items by category, and also add a 'recently removed items' section where I have the ability to quickly add back items at the simple click of a button.
