"This app, however, is nothing short of brilliant, easy to use and printing sensible labels."

"This is a superb program and does what it says simply and efficiently. The developer also responds promptly to emailed suggestions for improvements. Importing from Contacts works well and amendments are instantly carried through. My Christmas cards have never been sent out so early!"
"I love how this app has streamlined addressing my Christmas cards!! Thank you!!"
"myCardLists delivers an extremely effective way to manage card lists which in my view means the ability to easily compose lists from your Contacts, get the labels printed, and keep track of the cards you received and those you sent! Add the ability to manually enter list members, assign nicknames, select from multiple addresses, intelligent handling the country portion of the address, accommodate a large range of label types, AirPrint directly or produce a PDF of the labels, clone new lists from existing lists, all wrapped in a visually pleasing interface. Winner! I love spending 99 cents and getting and app that focuses on only doing a few things, and does them very well!"
"I hate addressing my Christmas cards. This app made it very easy to make labels from my iPad. I don't have a printer that works with my iPad yet, so I really appreciated having the capability to send them as a PDF to my email address. The app is awesome..."
“Just what you need at this time of year - a reliable self updating list to speed up sending out cards. This is the third or fourth year I've used it and it just gets better and better.”
“After years of tearing my hair out trying to get labels out of my iphone/iPad/iMac combo, an app that actually does what it promised!”

Great App, Great Support!


This app is a great solution to Apple’s problem. In Contacts, you cannot get address labels to print displaying First Name first. Rather, Contacts prints last name first. This has been an ongoing issue for years now.

CardLists has been my solution to this problem all these years, and I just printed out my labels for this year in record time! Years ago, I had a question for the developer, and the only way he could have gotten back to me with the answer any quicker would be with him sitting next to me.

This year, I had great success lining up all my addresses on a label sheet of 10x3 by using the font Futura-CondensedMediumFont. Everyone fits perfectly. Your mileage may vary.

Now There’s a Problem


I’ve had this app for over a year and it has worked great. But recently I lost a friend and went to edit the entry and have just her husband’s name. Unfortunately this also deleted the address. Okay, I’ll just add it back. The instruction say to tap on group or all. First problem, there is no group, it just says cancel or all. So I picked all and the app crashed. I tried several times and every time the app crashed.

We are also getting ready to move and I thought I’d set up a 2nd - General List. The app has a + sign which indicates you can add another and everything was okay until I tried to go to contacts and then the app crashed - again, and again.

I really like the app and hopefully the developer will see this and fix the problem.

Developer Response

Hi Sharon. I'm glad I did see this. This is a known issue which occurred after iOS 11 was released. Version 4.50 available now fixes this problem. . Please have a look and if possible, email me at to let me know how you get on.

Almost perfect


I’ve used this app for several years, and I mostly love it. There are a couple of relatively minor annoyances that I would like to see fixed. 1) auto sync between devices would be ideal 2) when I search, the search bar covers the first result in the list, making it inaccessible. 3) the “to mail” search filter doesn’t work properly 4) I still haven’t figured out the tiny icons and numbers that appear in the view that shows all my lists. They don’t make sense to me and don’t appear to correlate with what I’ve marked inside the list detail view. 5) ability to sort (not filter) by status would be super helpful. None of these is a dealbreaker, but would make a very good app great!

Developer Response

Thanks for the review and "suggestions". Yes you are correct about the problem with the search bar - I will fix that soon. There is an explanation of the symbols here - That might explain why you think the "To Mail" part is wrong. It would be great to discuss all of these issues by email, so if you have time, please contact me at
