We’re excited to take ZipList a step further by working with AOL to make grocery shopping and meal planning less of chore for their millions of users, as well as further our vision of a universal shopping list and recipe box.
Sterling, VA (PRWEB) December 15, 2010
ZipList today announced a strategic relationship with AOL's (NYSE: AOL) KitchenDaily website to integrate its free online shopping list and recipe box platform. In the coming months, ZipList plans to integrate the service into AOL's food blog, Slashfood, and paperless coupon service, Shortcuts.com, expanding the range of sites across the web where users can access their single online grocery list and recipe box.
Starting today, AOL’s KitchenDaily users will be able to add ingredients to their shopping lists and save any of KitchenDaily’s recipes to a single, universal recipe box with one click. They will also be able to add any other grocery items they need for the week to their online grocery list, which can be accessed at KitchenDaily.com, ZipList.com or on a variety of other apps and sites across the web.
“The weekly shopping list never really made the jump online in any way that made it significantly more useful than a paper list,” said Geoff Allen, Founder and CEO, ZipList, Inc. “We changed that when ZipList launched in February. We’re excited to now take ZipList a step further by working with AOL to make grocery shopping and meal planning less of chore for their millions of users, as well as further our vision of a universal shopping list and recipe box that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.”
ZipList enables users to create and share lists on the web or on iPhone and Android apps, as well as by email, instant message or text message. Users can also organize items on their shopping lists by aisle for each of their stores, making shopping more efficient by reducing back-tracking through the store.
“Incorporating a universal recipe box and shopping list feature into KitchenDaily is a real benefit to our users who come for great recipes and engaging content,” said Cheryl Brown, Editorial Director, KitchenDaily. “We’re excited to be able to make it easier for KitchenDaily visitors to save their favorite recipes and add them to their weekly grocery lists.”
In February, the free ZipList online shopping list and recipe search service was made available to the public. At the same time, ZipList announced integration into recipes across MarthaStewart.com, as well as into “Martha’s Everyday Food™,” a recipe and grocery list app for the iPhone and iPod Touch that seamlessly syncs with http://www.ZipList.com for shared web access.
