First, thanks to everyone behind Open Intent. I love your approach and your Android software so far is nearly all best in class. Now, my requests. ;)
-I agree: rename as just "Lists." Keep in mind that most features can be utilized for more than just shopping, and as long as the features are programmed with that in mind, it keeps the program more versatile and useful for users.
-I also agree: make font size smaller and minimize vertical space between items, (or even better, provide these as options!) If I'm shopping it's cumbersome to only see 5 or 6 items on the screen at a time and have to continually scroll back and forth. Android supports huge screens with massive resolutions and I was seeing some 20-30 items at a time on far smaller screens on far inferior platforms like Palm devices, YEARS ago.
-check out the Palm platform's Handy Shopper. It really hit the sweet spot of listmakers for me back on my Treo. One of it's best features which OIShoppingLists still lacks was it's extreme levels of sorting, organization, and metadata for list items. For example I could note that Bananas were on Aisle 2 which was the Produce aisle at Food Town and cost .89 cents, but on Aisle 11 which was the Produce/Deli aisle at Food Lion where they cost .79 cents.
-Also, it would be great to only have to enter an item once, ever, and only check and uncheck from then on. So, for example, I would add Bananas to my grocery list, then I would check the "Need" box and if I viewed the "Need" list it would show up. Then, in the Need list, I could check it off when I put it in my cart, (so it would become crossed-out, and sent to the bottom of the list, but still viewable.) Then, when done shopping, I could click Clean Up and it would purge all my checked items from my Need list, but they would remain in my Master list, so the next week, when I needed bananas again, I wouldn't have to type it again, but could just check the Need box from the Master list next to the item Bananas. Cool, right?
-Make the Open dialog call the browseable folder tree in OI File Browser, (like CSV import/export does in Notepad.) Having to type in the location name of the file I'm looking for means I have to first go to a file browser program to remind myself what one of my many text files are called and where it is located.
-Make it able to properly display carriage returns, tabbed indents, and basic symbols like bullets. Other text editors on Android can do it already. Actually, even OIFileViewer can do it properly. Hmm...
-Select All Notes, delete.
-Again, smaller fonts, less vertical wasted space between items.
-CATEGORIES!!!! Palm had this a decade ago in their Notes program- Why is every developer since then dropping the ball!?!? (breathe, breathe. Sorry, just a little personal rant there. Not directed at you guys at all.) Whew! That said, yes, Categories are desperately needed. In fact, the more sortable organization, the better.
And can you develop an Outliner/tree list manager program?!? Pretty pretty please?!? Great examples include Symbian's Projekt, Palm's Shadowplan & Bonsai, Mac's Opal, and many more. You seem to be the group who could get this done in the best way, and it seems to totally fit with your general theme of providing useful, universal apps for Android. Just be sure that you can import/export standard .otln outline files, and even better would be to provide some sort of sync support.
In fact, cross platform sync support of standard filetypes would be another awesome thing you could develop. Support for .csv, .txt, .otln, .xlm, .ics, vCards... ooo, this would be cooooollllll.....
Anyway, those are just my initial dreams. Thanks for listening and I wish you all the best.
