Also, I've played around with Snooth on the wine side, and I'd have to say you're probably better off with google goggles (goggles has superior label recognition, and will probably give you a much better idea of what you have in your glass and where to get more for how much)

I have it installed on my and my wife's iPhone - and it stays in sync. I can add items to the list while she's out (or vice versa) and it automatically updates, it also updates what is 'checked off' on the list. The app icon also shows a badge telling you how many things are on the list (handy when I'm out I can check and see if she needs anything at the store).

A year or so down the track; time to bump this one to see what people have found.
I'm looking for a 'grown up' cocktail app for Android; one that doesn't assume its recipe list is all I need to know (I'd even be happy if it didn't come with any recipes of its own). I want to be able to enter my own ingredient list, not be forced to work with whatever peculiar list the app comes with. And I want to be able to put my own recipes in, preferably with a photo. I don't mind a bit of manual work to get the name/ingredients/instructions/photo in there.
I've used Mixology/Mixologist - probably the best of a bad lot, but I'm hoping somebody out there in eGullet land will surprise me. Trello is a recent find; it's not intended as a recipe app but does at least let me enter anything at all that I want to. Where it falls down is now I have a reasonable number of recipes in there it's a bit cumbersome to navigate, particularly when I'm using it on the phone.
What's new and good out there?

I have used InMyBar on my iPad for a while now and find that it does most things that I need from a cocktail app. From your description, it may be a good fit for you as well.
Some things that I find useful
- A reasonably comprehensive ingredient list to which you can easily add new ones. You can mark those that you have in your bar or define and add new ones
- A number of pre-defined cocktail recipes. I am not too bothered by the recipes themselves as I usually modify them to suit me - here the ability within the app to clone an existing drinks recipe comes in handy. You can also create new cocktails
- Certain drinks can be marked as favourites and accessed easily - I tend to use this a lot when I am wondering what to make
- You can identify what ingredients are missing for any of your favourite cocktails for the next shopping trip
- Identify all the cocktails you can make from the available ingredients in your bar
Unfortunately they do not have an Android version of InMyBar. There does not appear to any similar Android app on Google Play - so if anyone has any recommendations I would be interested to hear.
(for the sake of clarity, I'm just an average punter and have nothing to do with the developers of the app )
