So I've been wanting to learn programming for a long time now. Though I've done some programming in school and college, it's all just been random operations on matrices and arrays in the command line.
So I've set out to learn some on my own. For a couple of months now I've been working on a small Android app as part of that. It's a small utility that lets you make shopping lists. I've published it now to the play store where you can check it out. As this my first real programming project ever, be prepared for bugs and stuff.
I've only tested it on a Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 both running 4.2.1, but in theory it should be compatible with any device running 4.0+. No 10 inch tablet UI yet, though, sorry.
Get it on the Play Store.

Great way to motivate yourself to code!
Pretty cool, keep rocking!
Any reasons why you chose to get started with java/Android? I always founds obj-c a lot more interesting and challenging.
@Ivo Mynttinen Yes, but no particularly interesting reason. It's mostly because I'm using a galaxy nexus as my daily driver, the lower barrier of entry with no setup required to start developing on the device and easy publishing.
But otherwise I agree with you. I did a little cocoa/objective-c a few years ago for mac os x and I like the language better than java. Especially since obj-c is like c - very lenient and you can do pretty much anything you want (even if it's bad). Java is much more strict and places a few restrictions on what code you can write.
As for the apis, the android api was nice to work with, but, if cocoa touch is anything like cocoa, apple's api is probably more elegant and consistent.
Downloaded and using it right now. Lovely design.
Ok, scratch that, AWESOME design. It follows holo guidelines perfectly, animations and tutorial are very nicely done, i love the look of the receipts in history, and notifications are expendable in JB. What more could one want?
@Milos Mirkovic Thank you!
One thing - when i add new items, they are automatically crossed, some people on G+ (me included) would prefer it to just be added to the list, and we can cross it by ourselves. You can add both options, so each can choose the one they prefer.
