Rapidly create lists and notes, sync them with Dropbox and share with others. Listacular's streamlined interface allows you to create to-do's, bullet point outlines and simple text notes a fluidly as you think.
Listacular saves your lists to Dropbox in simplified text markdown, so you can update or add new lists from anywhere. You can collaborate with others over shared Dropbox folders: two people can work on the same list at the same time and changes will be intelligently merged together.

The best plain text task manager
If you use TaskPaper, FoldingText, or nvALT to manage your plain text todo lists, Listacular is the best app for syncing your lists to your iPhone. Taskmator recognizes the same tagging and formatting conventions as the desktop apps, but it doesn't have reminders. Upword Notes has reminders -- for lists, not individual tasks within a list, strangely -- but it has its own way of titling documents and assigning tasks a priority level, and they don't work right in FoldingText and TaskPaper. Listacular has reminders and plays nice with desktop apps, and it even goes beyond that. You can view your files as plain text instead of a list if you want to take notes, for example. The gestures are good, too. This is definitely the best option.
This is by far the best list creator I've had and I've tried a lot of them. This one is great. You can creat many different lists and title them as you want - you can mark them with check marks which I love! Or you can swipe them off when completed . There's bullet points etc. I just love it. I've had it for a year now and never looked for another! Runs great not one hiccup at all!! :-) I recommend it if you like to make lists on your phone !
Best plain text productivity tool
This app is the best tool I've found to manage plain text lists on the iPhone. It has a nice design, intuitive interface, and it has become a core part of my workflow.
That said, there are continual sync errors which make this app difficult to work with. At best you will just see error messages; at worst you will loose your data.
Any time I make a big change to my lists on another device, I typically have to remove and re-download this app and set up Dropbox again. I lost data twice when letting it sync normally, so I don't trust it to sync when there have been significant changes to my files.
It will handles small incremental changes well, but will often show a message saying, "A general sync error occurred".
