This is an application that will use the bar code scanner on your phone to scan grocery items and will add them to an inventory inside the application. You will also be able to scan QR Codes for certain recipes in magazines and this application will give you an itemized list of the items or ingredients you either already have or need to pick up.

To go a step further, eventually there should be the ability to "add groceries" to your inventory at say the self check out counters at grocery stores. This will allow you to add all the groceries you just bought to your inventory at the end of your transaction without having to scan them one at a time.

This will be a wonderfully convenient application for any parents who want to know a good recipe or who just want to know what they have at home while they are out and about. In fact, if you are someone who finds that there is not enough time in the day to do all the important things, let alone worry about whether or not they have enough flour at home to make cookies for their son's birthday party, this application will take a huge load off your shoulders.
