DLaw, I’m sorry to hear the developer is feeling so poorly, and has been for awhile. I understand too well how chronic illness changes one’s life.
We sound similar in our heavy use of this app. I used to use HandyShopper on my Palm Pilot, and as soon as I got my first Android phone (we were early adopters of the G1) I ported that data to ToMarket and have loved and recommended it ever since. Like you, I have 3 Krogers amongst my stores with their own aisles, depending on where I am when I stop for groceries. And I keep other lists for other types of stores. It’s really great.
I’ll not expect any updates, then, but will keep using this app until it simply stops working. I don’t want to switch, either, as this one is nearly perfect for me.
