Shopping lists and reminders are easily shared between iPhones with the stock Reminders app. That means adding something to a shopping list on one iPhone automatically updates it on the other person's. While this is a great option if both parties use iPhones, what if one of them uses Android? That's exactly the question one reader asked us. He currently uses an iPhone while his wife is sporting an Android. They want to be able to share lists and notes with one another but aren't quite sure what the best solution is. Luckily, there are some awesome third party apps that are available for both iPhone and Android that do just that. Here are my suggestions...
My top recommendation is Wunderlist since it supports every platform I can think of and doesn't cost a dime, unless you want the extra premium features. Not only can you create and share lists, you can collaborate and leave notes on them. If you want to get even more serious, Wunderlist Pro is $4.99 a month or $50 a year and lets you add attachments and assign tasks and add due dates. This is geared more for work groups but is a nice option for more time sensitive type lists.
If you're more concerned with list making than note taking, Wunderlist is the best option.
Evernote is more of a note taking app than anything but you can create lists inside of it and share them. It's also available for a huge variety of platforms which include iOS and Android. Like Wunderlist, it's also free unless you need premium features. One thing Evernote does without a premium subscription that Wunderlist does not is attachments. The only catch is you're limited in storage space each month. You'll also need Evernote Premium on both ends if you want to edit each other's notes and lists, otherwise they're read only. A premium subscription is $5.00 a month or $45 per year.
If you want free hand notes and image uploads more than true lists, get Evernote.
