Rat Shopper


Shopper is not a Palm/PDA application, but a desktop application that can work with HandyShopper data files. RatShopper is Freeware. It is intended to be a tool to be used with HandyShopper - not a replacement for it.

    HandyShopper [not to be confused with Handy Shopper]is a great freeware application that maintains Shopping Lists (and other lists) on a Palm compatible PDA. I think it's a great application, but my wife wanted to enter stuff on the desktop, and so I developed this program to allow desktop updating of the list.

RatShopper provides for manipulation of lists, merging and typing in lots of data - things that are difficult or impossible to do on the PDA. Please note that the desktop interface is not the same as HandyShopper and is not intended to be a replacement for day to day shopping activities.

If you have large numbers of items in your lists, or have multiple shopping lists, then you really should try it out, it provides features that are very hard to do on your Palmtop.
