ZipList is designed to assist users with their grocery shopping and meal preparation. With ZipList, users can create a shopping list, search for and save recipes, locate nearby grocery stores, and discover items they may need. To plan meals, users can tap the “Search” button located at the bottom of the menu, and ZipList will load a variety of recipes. When users see a recipe of interest, they can tap it to view its ingredients. At this point, users have the option to view the recipe on the web, add its ingredients to their shopping list, save the recipe, or share it on Facebook, Twitter, or over email. (Please note: Users must select the “View Recipe on the Web” to access a recipe’s cooking directions.) If users tap the “Add to List” option, the recipe’s ingredients are automatically added to their shopping list. Then, when users go to the grocery store, they are able to check the ingredients they purchase off their list, and ZipList automatically moves them to its “Checkout” feature (noted by the red basket on top of the app). Once users have checked out of the grocery store, they can tap the word “Checkout” in the “Checkout” feature, and ZipList will automatically clear their shopping list.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign students a fictional person with specific weight goals (e.g., add 10 pounds in two months, lose 15 pounds in three months, or keep his/her weight the same). Using this app, students can search for recipes that will help their fictional person meet his or her weight goals. Additionally, students can cross-reference the ingredients in the meals with the Calorie Counter app to analyze the nutritional content of the different meals.
  2. As an assignment, students can select one recipe from this app to cook. Next, after eating, students can write a critique about the recipe, stating what they liked, did not like, and ways for the recipe to be improved. Students can compose these critiques in Quick Office or with SwiftKeys, and then upload them to a class website so their classmates can read them.
  3. Students can use this app’s Store Locator feature to find 5–10 nearby food stores. Next, students can rank these stores based on the amount of food available in the store, the quality of their produce, affordability of food items, customer service, store cleanliness, or using other criteria.
