What's new in version 4.6.1

AnyList v4.6.1 is a minor bug fix update.


AnyList v4.6 introduces location-based reminders, so you never forget to check a list when you're near the store. Swiping the reminder on your device's lock screen opens AnyList directly to the appropriate list, and you can set up multiple reminder locations for each list.

Location-based reminders require AnyList Complete, an optional in-app purchase that unlocks the full power of AnyList.

The best grocery list app I've found and I've tried many others. The ability to share a list with others and receive notifications when a list has been modified is great.
