Great app! Easy to use! Not cluttered!

Loves lists & organizing stuff

Just what I was looking for! To make a list tap on the category, you can change the color and the category name, start making lists by tapping the +. To delete a list, delete each item by swiping left, a red delete button will appear, delete all of the items as well as the name of the list, back out of the list and it will disappear. (I mention this as many of the reviewers have indicated they have not determined how to delete lists.) This app is very easy to use. Wonderful for making lists for: shopping, packing, to do, etc. Thank you to the apps creators!

Breathtaking - better than Wunderlist

Picture Elegance

I love this app! And, you are not being nickel and dime to death with in app purchases. Unlike the other reviewer, you can delete your master list. It just took a moment for me to figure it out. Please don't be deterred this app has been longed desired by power users.

Impressed with the app


Impressed with the app and tried all the options including reminders and repeat billings. In 20 minutes time of working the app, it crashed three times! All while involved with the Tags! Enough said. If working with Tags it will crash on you, so alternatively don't use this function. Or . . . . Just pass on this app as undependable for now.
