👋🏼 Hi there! We're Dan and Lawrence, the creators of OurGroceries. In 2009, we both had young families with all of the classic grocery shopping problems: multiple paper grocery lists; forgetting the paper list when we went shopping; we couldn’t add to the list from work; and we couldn’t add last-minute things to the list when our spouses were shopping. We both had shiny new iPhones and decided to solve this problem for ourselves—OurGroceries was born!
Since then, we've built the app with these principles in mind:
- Simplicity over completeness. We try to keep new features out of the way of users who don't need them. If we can't find a way to do this, we'll skip the feature.
- We don't do anything that we'd be ashamed to tell you in person. We don't sell your personal data, trick you into upgrading, or waste your time to make us money.
- Our business is like a general store in a small town. We personally read every app store review and respond to every email. We will spend time helping you learn the app, and we're fair with refunds if you're not satisfied.
- We obsess over every detail, even apparently irrelevant ones! You wouldn’t believe how long we took just writing this one bullet point.
We have one of the top grocery list apps and we're still hard at work on it, taking our time with each new feature to make sure it's well-designed. We are a family-owned business, and we use our own apps at home every single day. We are in this for the long term, and we'd love to have you come along for the journey!
