Hello!

I'm glad to introduce a "Speech Shopper" app: very simple shopping list with voice input.

App idea belongs to my lovely wife Natalia: she's tried a few shopping lists from the Store but wasn't satisfied by any of these apps. She asked me for a long time to make this app and finally I couldn't resist :)

The app UI is very simple and intuitive (I don't think it needs additional comments or explanation). Just one important design issue: MS speech recognizer can recognize only the words already submitted by API call. So, it can't recognize the unknown words, you need to add 'em to the database manually. Sorry for inconvenience but it's not a my fault.

The app already has two languages shopping database, English and Russian. You can obtain the database (actually, it's a plain text file) by synchronizing data to the OneDrive.

If you want to share your updated database, or make a translation to your language (for this app I'll accept only languages supported by WP7 speech-to-text and text-to-speech), please contact me here in forum or my PM.

Please don't forget to rate 5 stars and write a good review (of course if you like this app)!

Thank you and enjoy!

Application received update with critical bug fix (if voice services file for current language is missing, application crashed on start). Also French and Spanish translation was added.

P.S. Sorry to my dear translators: I don't have time to refactor "about" page to display your nicks/names! Deginitely will fix in the new release (this one was more about fixing critical issue).

:( Could you please check French language speech services (in settings)? Damn M$ still not released yet speech services for some langs supported on WP8.1 (what's why my wife should switch from Russian to English in the "Speech Shopper")

Thanks, my friend! It looks like an issue source is a MS middle-ware component to connect to OneDrive. I just call standard API from "Speech Shooper", nothing more!

P.S. Just tried to reproduce with fresh install - no issues found :( Looks like it's a French related only bug (I connected to my main live account from test handset without any issue)
@titi66200, could you please - just for the testing purposes - try to link another - le me say, a brand new - live account?
