Have You Thought about Sharing Your Shopping List with Reminders?

by Sarah Dobson on August 31, 2020

You may already use Apple’s Reminders app to track your personal to-dos, but it works well for lists of all sorts. Reminders is particularly helpful when you use it to share a list, such as a shopping list that anyone in your family can use when in the right part of town. The steps for setting up a shared list are similar on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, but we’ll give directions here for the iPhone. Tap the Edit button at the upper right of the list you want to share. Two new items—Color and Sharing—appear at the top of the list. Tap Sharing, and then Add Person, enter the name of the person you want to share with, and tap Add. Once the other person accepts your invitation, their name appears under the list name. Both of you can now see the list, add items, and mark items as purchased. The best part is, of course, when the other person checks something off!
