Shopping is one of the most frequently occuring tasks in our daily lives, and creation and management of shopping lists is an impor- tant aspect of this task. Given the recent adoption of mobile de- vices, the process of writing lists is not only limited to the use of pen and paper, as a good number of digital tools and applications are available. The goal of this paper is to study and understand the transition between paper-based and digital shopping lists. We ana- lyze how people interact with paper-based shopping lists and derive design implications for our own hybrid shopping support applica- tion, which combines paper-based lists with a mobile application. We contribute the study and the design and implementation of a hy- brid (pen-and-paper-based UI and mobile GUI) application for the creation of shopping lists.
