Basket - Grocery Shopping App Reviews

0 add


This is such a valuable tool!

Getting there

As long as you understand that this app is a work in progress, it’s PHENOMENAL! There is no other way I have found to compare prices so efficiently. This would even be good just as a place to write your grocery list down. Looking forward to adding more stores and searching more by item type than by brand.

Too hard to use

I’m sure this app has some great features but I didn’t want to take the time to figure it all out. If it’s not easier or faster than a pen and paper then it’s pointless to me.

Last update fail

I can’t get in as of last update!

Major flaw

The app automatically added the Dollar General from the next town over instead of the one in my town and there’s no way to change it. Since prices and availability vary between stores, it’s not an accurate description of what the price/availability is at my local store. So all in all - not helpful for me.

Don’t bother

Luckily this app was free. It’s not user friendly, it doesn’t find the lowest price, it isn’t easy to use, it was a a waste of time

Not worthwhile

Prices are what other users have uploaded. For me, this didn’t work, because what I was looking for was grouped in this app with another product. Example: Diet Mountain Dew 2 L is combined in this apps’ search with Mountain Dew Lemon Lime—but these are separate products with different prices. I rushed to the store to get the price I wanted, and found it wrong product had the low price. maybe they need to separate products by UPC code instead of by title. if I could rely on the prices, it would be worth it, but I can’t.

Keep getting an error

Since your last update, I can’t type anything, scan a barcode, or get anything to work due to this error I keep getting “Operation could not be completed. (kCLErrorDomain error 0.) When will this be fixed? I need to do shopping. Lol

Don’t bother

Doesn’t work, pop up box says “oops!” Every few characters typed and search feature doesn’t work at all.

Store brands

Wish they had options to see store brands

Scan goes directly to contribute price

I tried to add an item I buy regularly by scanning the barcode, but while it properly ID’s the item I find myself on the ‘Contribute price’ page every time. Frustrating.

Okay on iPhone, useless on iPad.

I liked this app a lot until I got a new iPad Pro, my last iPad Pro the app worked fine on, with this newest update it keeps giving the message “Oops” anytime I type a letter. Any letter. I can’t finish a word or search or even log in.

One star...learn to make an app

I can’t believe you forced me to upgrade the app at startup. I’ve never gotten this bad experience with any other serious app I use regularly. You’re supposed to support your users whether they update or not. And for what? The app is feels like a website. The app is so obviously a website wrapped up in an app. Learn to make high quality consumer app, please. There are tons of examples. You use them everyday.

Latest update- Oops!

After downloading the latest update, I can't do anything in the app without a without a window popping up that says "Oops!" Every single letter I try to type makes it pop up.

Organic fruits & veggies

In this day, organic fruits & veggie need to Be a choice or option in shopping

Not impressed

Did a bar code scan retired dog food for cat food and pushed a 3 pound back in place of a 13# bag prices not at all impressive

Needs a Help Guide



How do I Add Grocery stores in my area? The options to choose from are not in my area

Great app

Helps me save money without the frustration of finding the best deals or saving coupons. Love it

Got it...and got rid of it

Too difficult to edit a list and it’s incorrect. three different items and told me that Publix doesn’t carry them. I buy them there all the time, so keep working on it!

Saw on the Steve Harvey Show

Just saw this app on the Steve Harvey show, gonna give it a try.

That the price listed would be correct.

Was notified by my local Albertsons Supervisor I was NOT correct in expectation that the price would be correct.. she had never heard of the App. That I could only get the 3 12 pks of Diet Cherry Pepsi for $ 11.00. I just got them And left!! Went to Target... I could get 3/ $ 10.00 and $20.00 gets you $5.00 off AND get 5% off w/ my RED CARD!! All in all I got my Diet Cherry Pepsi’s for $ 1.58/ 6 pk. CHEAPER THAN Albertsons!! Weird... the ad for Target was. Correct.. but I was told no by the female Supervisor!! What the Dishonest move are the up to at Albertsons!! Soo.. why is Albertsons backing out of the advertisement and published prices!??? Unfair practices!! That’s Whi I rarely shop there!! I WANTED to return but this leaves s bad taste in my mouth!! Good luck!! MBO

Easy to find the lowest prices

I use this app to find where my favorite products are and how much they cost. I save money every time I shop now. Definitely useful for those who like to eat and save!

Price Comparison works!

It takes a few mins to add products to the shopping list feature but does a really good job of comparing prices and is easy to understand.

Real Utility for Grocery Shoppers.

My overall opinion is Basket is a really great idea and have real utility for shoppers. A nice feature would be to search by what products are on sale. That's how our family makes our shopping list. We look at the available sales at our local grocery stores.

Saved $25!

I found 4 items on my shopping list that were on sale at Kroger's and pocketed $25 on my grocery shopping yesterday. Love ya Basket. Can make app for my kids school supplies?!


I was looking for fruit and it said it was on sale at two store and it was a waste of my time!!!

Too slow

I love the idea behind this app, but it's painfully slow. It takes forever to find prices and I'm just not patient enough to go through my entire list one by one.

Great Start, Refinements Needed

So I downloaded the app to look it over before I go shopping to see what it was all about. It starts out with a good sampling of stores in the area, but there were a couple that weren’t in the list - so that needs to be updated. Second, there is no way to broaden the search of stores which can be “faved” to set up your favorite stores. You can’t search by zip code or city name - even by removing my profile zip and changing it to the zip code(s) I also shop. Turning off location services doesn’t help either. Having the options to add stores outside your current location *before* heading out to shop would be helpful - especially in list preparation. Managing data that fluctuates constantly on this type of platform must rely on individual app users to contribute their info. If a price is wrong, you do have the option to update it in the app. You can also scan bar codes and manually enter prices which helps expand the database as well. I think with a few tweaks that this will be a great app. Keep up the good work!


Dear innovator, The ability to make a grocery list, have the app tell you if you need “crunchy peanut butter”, to go to Walmart on Jones street and get skippy brand for the best deal if I use a coupon it found for me is the most amazing thing to me! If there is a way to contact you to work with you to expand this app please let me know because I love this idea and would love to be apart of this innovation. Kind regards Brianna Rodriguez

The best app ever!

This is the best app around for saving money on groceries and for making some extra money too!

Need to Update??

Every time I open app get that message. Try to. No update available. Otherwise I really like.


If you are looking at this app because they offered a job ziprecruiter to scan items then don’t download it. There is no money involved.

Needs location everytime

Couldn't continue using it because you have to provide your exact location everytime you use it. Even Google maps works without location unless you need to navigate; why then does the grocery app always need your location.

Add Mother’s Market!

I really like the app so far. I’ve only been using it for a couple of weeks but it’s been really helpful. I try to contribute as much as possible. I would love for MOTHER’S MARKET to be added to the list of grocery stores though, since I shop there very often and they have incredible sales. Thank you!

Good, some issues

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for, with some issues: 1. Seems to “croak” when shopping list is too big. It won’t tell me the 1 store I need to go to. About 30 items in cart. 2. Would be great to have the option of saying “no substitutions” for those items we’re brand loyal on.

Tried a few times never worked right

Only served ads but never compared prices. Maybe it's great but I'll never know.

Keep working on the design

The app works pretty well. Some of the prices were inaccurate, but there is a space to update them for yourself and for others. It doesn't work a hundred percent but I'm sure they are working on it. The real problem with this app is the design. It give suggestions on different stores you might want to visit to save money, and then tells you which items in your list you might need to find looks at different stores close to you, and produces combinations that will save you money. However, the store is it suggests might not carry the exact items you want. So the app says you might need to "swap out" items for comparable ones. comparable items for if that specific store doesn't carry it. However, it's almost impossible to tell which store they are telling the screen that gives you these options is designed very poorly. It's hard to tell which specific store does or doesn't have your items. It's also confusing when you switch back and forth from does and price comparison to your personal list. Once they get the design kinks worked out, I'm sure this will be a very popular, very useful app

At least for my purposes useless

I like to keep track of how much I’m spending while I shop, but there doesn’t appear to be a way to enter/track items sold by weight, not the ability to enter a price (if what basket has is incorrect).

Go get em Basket!

easy to use shopping list and love the seeing the prices at the different grocery stores!

Amazon prices

I compared my shopping list items to Amazon and found Amazon is $37 more expensive than my local Target. I went to the Amazon website to confirm the prices and 12 out of 13 were correct. Wow!

The BEST Price Comparison app!

I've tried many apps that claim to compare prices at grocery stores over past 8 years starting with the promise of milo when they were acquired by eBay (which they shut down). The Basket app is the first that actually delivers price comparison on a regular basis and provides value to me and my family. The depth of prices in the app from our local grocery stores is impressive and continues to grow as more shoppers update prices. There are a few deficiencies but overall it is the BEST price comparison app I have used (and I have tried all of them!)

Grocery Prices

The app does a superb job comparing prices at my local grocery stores.

Fave Brands!

I recently downloaded the Basket app after I seen it on the news. It is very useful and I like to see prices and deals for my favorite brands.

Brilliant app!

I actually had a similar idea for app. Basket is brilliant!

Best Grocery Price Matching app

This is the most robust app I have come across in my years of grocery shopping. I hope you create a laptop version of the app soon. Sometimes, I prefer to use my laptop instead of my phone.

Easy to Shop

I found the app easy to use and compare prices for the products at several stores at one time. It is very good for grocery shopping and saving money.

Love Saving with Basket!

I'm loving this app so much, it's saved me hours every week by showing me all prices and sales for me!! All the stores we shop at are now in the app so 5 stars is deserved.

Incorrect prices

Prices are incorrect and it's not very user friendly.
