ZipList Makes Grocery Shopping & Meal Planning Effortless

Food is all the rage on the web right now, especially if you take one glance at a typical Pinterest feed (or, um, at our Food category). But, apart from giving you recipe inspiration, which sites online have actually given you tools for making and purchasing food? Not very many.

That's why we were so excited to check out ZipList, a site that lets you clip recipes from across the web, then automatically organizes your grocery shopping list based on meals you decide you want to create. Unlike many digital recipe box tools like KeepRecipes and Plan2Eat, this (free!) app lets you clip recipes nearly everywhere on the web you can find one, then adds them to a grocery list, which is instantly filtered by things you probably already have at home as well as things you need to buy. It also automatically syncs to a mobile app (available on Android and iPhone) so that you can edit your list on the go!

The company has just announced that they've reached 1 million users, are working with 125 partners (ranging from Martha Stewart to Simply Recipes), and are adding new features that will let you text message recipes or take photos of QR codes to add new recipes to  your ZipList. How sweet is that?

We just downloaded the app and have started our recipe list on the site — you should, too! We'd love to hear what you think. What other food and recipe apps have you been using lately? Leave us a comment below to let us know!
