A little PR bird let me know that Skript’s excellent Buy Me a Pie shopping list app is free from today through July 4. If you have’t heard of Buy Me a Pie before, it’s a shopping list app with an essential feature for families or anyone with roommates and shared shopping responsibilities: the ability to synchronize shopping lists across multiple devices over the air.
Once you install the app you’ll need to create an account by designating a user name and 4-digit PIN. These are the credentials your family members or roommates will need to share lists so make them memorable. If anyone who needs to access the lists doesn’t have an iPhone or iPad, lists are also accessible via the web at Buymeapie.com. If one of your lists is updated on another iOS device or on the website, you’ll get a push notification alert to let you know.
If over-the-air synchronization is too fancy for you, you can also send your lists via text message or email.
Here’s a video Skript created to showcase Buy Me a Pie’s features:
Buy Me a Pie is universal and works on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or higher. It’s normally $2.99 so be sure to get it now (and make sure your family and friends with iOS devices get it) before it goes back to its regular price on July 4.
