It is actually a very straightforward application in the sense style. First line is an edit field where you type in your list item and press on a button to add the item to your list.

Once an item is on the list you have a check box. If you check the box, presumably you have purchased the item.

There are three filters. One to display all items, one to display items that are checked and one to display items that have not been checked.

SQL CE Compact 3.5 SP2 attached.

Best regards,

Thanks boggsie posting the SQL Compact cab file.
Because I wonder whether I can distribute MS software in a forums, I didn't post the attachement. Once I have privilege to post external link, I will add link to download SQL Compact in the first post.

Thanks sergiorus testing my application and the screenshots.
For the errors you found, would you mind please send me the log file "MobileShoppingList.log" which inside the application folder to me for investigation.

Bugs
1. Sometimes, if list is long, long tap menu don't work
--> I can reproduce this issue, bug fixed.
2. Dont know what i ve done, but now i have message "Cant add item to database"
--> Cannot reproduce, may require the log file for investigation.

Requests
1. I think, need an option to clear all list.
--> Clarification required. Do you mean delete all items? or Uncheck all checked items?


As a new user, how can I quote the reply message?
How can I become a user without such restrictions?

I think, problem was because i didnt restarted device after installing Microsoft SQL Server. Now also cannot reproduce this bug. Log attached

Requests
1. I think, need an option to clear all list.
--> Clarification required. Do you mean delete all items? or Uncheck all checked items?
I meant "Delete all items" option

strange, but app doesn't start on my htc mega (qvga)
Have you installed the prerequisite SQL Compact 3.5? (Download link posted in #1)

There should be a log file inside the application directory which records errors occurred.
If you don't mind, you can send the log file to me (Private message) for investigation.

94 downloads for v1.1 program. Any feedback for me to evolve the program to 1.2?

Thanks
Hi,

App looks good but the installation stopped me in my tracks.

I downloaded the SQL Compact 3.5 as linked in the first post, but all it did was install a load of files and folders to my Program Files folder on my laptop. It didn't install anything to my Topaz, and there didn't seem to be anything obvious to choose from in the Program Files folder. After copying the cab for the main app across, it obviously wouldn't run (I assume because the SQL thing didn't get installed).

I'm not the biggest noob around here (at least I hope not), but I found the installation too difficult. Would it be possible for the app to check for prerequisites on first run, and ideally download the necessary cabs? Or could you provide a download link here to a CAB for the prerequisite? As opposed to a 22mb MSI file that doesn't even create a Start Menu entry!

Would still like to try it if I can get it working ;-)

Thank you for your feedback.

I attached the SQL Server Compact Edition SP2 cab file in the attachment section and changed the prerequisite download link to download the attachment.

Welcome to try the application again.

Thanks, works now after installing the prerequisite.

Performs as expected, no bugs or anything that I've noticed. Compared to the other shopping list-type apps that I've tried it's pretty good; it's nice and simple. I suppose if you wanted to develop it further you could have multiple lists (eg Groceries, Pharmacy, etc). But from my point of view it would be important that you can still just load up the app and start adding items straight away.

Is there any way that the startup time of the app can be improved, or is that just down to the SQL and the platform? At the moment it takes a bit longer to startup on my Topaz than it's nearest competitor (Winmo's built-in Notes). Perhaps an option in the Menu to minimise, as opposed to exit? so that it's still running in the background and it can be picked from the task manager? This way it encourages users to leave it running in the background so that startup is quicker.

Anyway really like the app, thanks a mill!

feature wish: A "masterlist" where you can store all your favorite products would be nice so that you don't have to write the same again and again to have a new shopping list.

Just go into your product list and tap your needed products and you have the shopping list finished.

wheresmybeaver, Thank you for your feedback.

I considered your suggestions,
1. Multiple shopping lists (eg Groceries, Pharmacy, etc) --> I will develop a Shop Master List function to allow user to group shopping items by different shops.

2. I will try to improve the startup time of the program.

3. Funtion to minimize the program --> Actually if you tap on the X/OK button at the upper right corner, the program should be minimized. It's one of the WM default feature.
