Oh woollies, you just eliminated the trolley and made the whole shopping experience a lot easier.

The supermarket giant has updated its shopping app to include mobile shopping and a super cool barcode scanner so customers can scan what's in their fridge and cupboards, add it to their shopping list and get it all delivered to home or work.

Nice. Very nice.

I'm loving this for several reasons. First, shopping is mostly just a pain - there's the queues, crying babies and bad lighting. Plus I regularly walk into a shop with something like milk and toothpaste on my list and come out carrying everything but. This little app keeps you on track and away from temptations. It's free, so give it a try if you're curious. I just downloaded it now and will be putting it through its paces shortly.

Has anyone already got this, or are you using something similar?

Grace, i used the online shopping option with Coles for roughly 7 months when i had some health issues.
It is a wonderful concept and having an App would make the process even simpler.
Looking back there were some reservations when buying fresh product, specially fruit and Veg as the quality supplied can be an issue if pre packed.
For someone time poor i would imagine this would be a great asset. From what t i have read everything will be supplied from your local outlet and not from a warehouse.
I suspect this will be the way of the future. In fact i buy all my meat, pork and chicken product from Australian farmers where the quality and price cannot be faulted.

That gives me an idea ... a similar app, but for your local farmers' markets.

Cheers

Trouble with all these things. You don't get the discounts they offer on tv or in there catalogs.

You do Ken all the weekly specials and a catalogue view of discounted items are part of the new-version app.

Well that's a bonus, if that's the case I will let the boss know, and I can get out of pushing the trolley and avoid getting told off, for sneaking in twisties, mars bars, and barbaque shapes :D

The Apps awesome.... Just downloaded it. It's amazing how far things have come with online grocery shopping.

Will probably still go to the shops though.
Favourite Fruit....An Apple!

I think at some stage we are going to be totally disconnected from each other...no more going out.... getting to know people or making new friends. The Apps rules. I love them but like you said Brian, we will still go shopping. And farmers markets are just great around here.

Cheers
Gigi
