My go-to for quick notes and lists

I started using this on the IPhone when it first came out and then later to using it also on the Mac. I find it quicker to use as a reminder that doesn’t need an alert and for my parts list when shopping. Simple interface, easy to add and delete entries, easy on the eyes. It seems to sync reasonably well, although I’ve had to at times close both instances of it (Mac and iPhone) in order to get it updated. I don’t need or expect instantaneous updating. Usually varies from a few seconds to a few minutes for me. Certainly not a deal breaker for me. I tried the reminder option a couple of times, but never could get it to work comfortably enough to continue using it as the stock Apple reminders seems to alert me adequately. Over all, I’d certainly recommend it. Would like to see the reminder option a little more robust - I could never hear it when the assigned time came around. Other than that, no big issues. Probably use it as much as I use anything else, app related. Make sure all your Apple devices are running the current OS or it won’t sync. I had to downgrade my IPad to keep some old apps working, so I can only use it on my Mac and iPhone. Definitely a keeper.

Potential - needs improvement

I use this on my Macbook, iPad, and Iphone. Here are the things that keep it from really being great:
Mac - not as nice as ipad version because it only shows 1 column at a time - needs to update to look more like the ipad version
Sync - this thing should sync in something close to real time, or at least when it is re-opened. I havent’ figured out yet how long it takes to sync but it isn’t fast enough
repeats - it would be great if I could set up a repeating reminder. Every day I want to be reminded to exercise 30 min. Every week I want to be reminded to read a book, etc. I chop it off the list for that day and the next day a new identical one pops up. Or every monday is cardio… so monday i run and cross it off, and the next monday morning it pops up again to remind me its cardio day.
Sorting - i like the way these are sorted, but if you want to see what is the NEXT thing due.. you have to look at each of your lists… it would be nice to toggle and sort by due date.

Highly functional & intuitive, but needs history & more export options

I love the interface, and although improvements can be made, the overall minimalist, design-focused build of this program is inspiring and extremely effective.

The multi-platform sync is awesome, especially if you’re an idea person inspired at all hours.

As a project manager and someone involved in multiple jobs and non-profits, however, I often need to export and import lists into other softwares, and/or review things I’ve done. I’d love to be able to utilize this as a daily todo and then export portions from certain branches of my todo tree as an XLS, for import into other standardized software. Preferring export/import to Clear is one thing, forcing it is another…and has dramatically reduced if not altogether eliminated my use of this software. This is extremely unfortunate, because I really like it. :(
