Lumiappaday #37: Groceries demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800 (Tesco shopper app)

| December 23, 2011 | 4 Replies

Online grocery shopping, there’s many reasons to do it (apart from being lazy). Lack of transportation to carry weekly shop, mobility issues, busy schedule, lack of items at your local (easier to order in), ordering tons and tons of stuff, whatever…

There are several supermarkets in the UK that do home delivery. This is Tesco’s app. It’s free, looks great and easy enough to use t hough it could do with a home button. You can do pretty much everyting within the phone, sign in, book a delivery slot, add items to your basket, pick up your favourites, search categories or specific items and check out. The only problem I had was stability but it seems better behaved with the last Lumia update.

Note, this might be a UK specific app.

Developer Blurb:

FREE from Tesco, the Grocery app means you can shop on the go. Simply download, log in and start shopping – all you need is to be registered at You can then book a delivery slot, search for products or start a new order using ‘Favourites’. Forgotten to add milk to your basket? No problem – you can amend your order and check out any time, night or day, wherever you are. And it all syncs seamlessly with your online order

Looks quite good, great use of Metro

Usability: 8

Simple enough, needs a home button though

Performance: 7

Recently it’s been OK but prior to the update it was very temperamental with random errors.
