The MealPlan Meal and Grocery Planner app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to plan your meals out in advance and take the guesswork out of it. What's great is that you can use this app to plan out a whole week's worth of meals, which means you can plan it over the weekend and know the week will go smoothly when it comes to food preparation. Add all the items you need to your grocery list based on the meals you're making and make weeknights a breeze.
The MealPlan Meal and Grocery Planner app is about making your life easier so that you don’t have to worry about what you’re going to cook. By planning it all in advance you'll be able to enjoy smooth, quick, and enjoyable meals. The app uses drag and drop functionality as you plan your meals and you can always add new meals to the list. What's great is that the app is able to sync across your devices so your meal plan and grocery list are always available to you.
In the app's most recent update there were some speed boosts added to the syncing feature, bug fixes were made, and now the app is able to support iOS 8 and iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
