Helpful organizing tool


I use this app everyday and it is great. I use it to make shopping lists at the different stores I shop at as well as for making packing lists for trips and “to do” lists. It is great to be able to mark through an item and then unmark it. One thing I have found “on accident” that I don’t like is that if you scroll to the top of your list too quickly it will “clean up” your list by deleting everything you marked off. I don’t like this feature because when I make a packing list for example, I mark off the things that I have packed and then usually, when I am getting ready to come home from my trip I go back into my list and make sure I pack everything back up to come home. If I have accidentally scrolled to the top of my list too fast it will delete all of the items that I have marked through and that leaves me at risk for forgetting something.

A Good Notetaking App

When I need to write out longer types of notes and make lists, UpWord allows me to do just that while also offering an easy and fast way to remove items off of lists. UpWord offers an easy to use interface that's overall aesthetically pleasing, easy to use and learn, and convenient in terms of its usefulness and its simpleness. Dropbox compatibility is also a great feature that allows me to edit notes on the computer, if I happen to need it for such. Overall, it's a great app, and if you're the kind of person who makes lists, takes notes, or even just writes short stories, UpWord is a great way to do all of these things. 5/5

Wish the colored folders were different

This app has what I was looking for--colored folders, and the feature of crossing off lines that makes shopping lists way easier. It's easy to organize, a great replacement for the notes app. I just wish the colored folders were more than just a little bit of color next to the words. The color-coding is really helpful to me so it would be nice if the whole heading or even the entire folder was in the color that the folder is. It's a relatively small preference because it is the only app I've found that has improved the aspects of the Notes app that weren't working for me.
