Have always loved it!

I have been using this app for years. What I particularly like is its flexibility. Once you have figured out your folders, absolutely no set up is required. You just open the app and write.

Easy data entry is important for me. I don’t like to have to type out a to do when I am out and about. So, I have a folder called To Do Bucket, into which I just dump all my To Dos in random order. Later, when I am at home, I can arrange the To Dos into groups as is convenient. For example, I have a list called This Week, and another called Routine and Repeating. If I want, I can then enter pertinent To Dos into the lists that are reserved for dated items. This is all whiz-bang easy.

Another flexible characteristic is that the app allows you to change the order of items easily. Sometimes I enter items in any random order, but I would prefer for them to be in some specified order on my daily list. On this app it is very easily manually to change the items’ order.

My only request would be the ability to copy and past, in addition to the existing cut and paste function. I sometimes would like the same item to be on two lists at once, and having the copy/paste function would make that possible.

One of My Favorite Apps


I keep this app at the bottom of my screen with my calendar, phone and music. I use it constantly. I'm a one-finger typist, so being able to just write is so much faster. 😉
I used the free app so often that I felt guilty and upgraded to the Gold version!
Really a great app for list lovers like myself. Shopping, To Do, Packing, Holiday, it's got room for them all. One of the best parts is that each item on your list can have it's own sub-list.
Great job UYH Gold!

Best ever list app!


Handwriting is faster than texting; notes are easy to edit and mark done. Creating sub-lists is easy. Naming the lists is easy. I use this app multiple times daily for my hourly desk schedule, for keeping a gift list, for shopping lists, and for random things I need to remember - like that song on the radio, or contact info for people I meet at events. 5 1/2 stars!
