Customer Reviews

Use Daily

Many apps make you "type" a list. I want to hand write my lists- thats why this is my favorite! Lists can include doodles, diffrnt colors, etc. Plus, it makes your handwriting look GREAT with the calligraphy effect. Perfect for grocery lists. You know youll have it with you at the store! Or that sudden inspiration you need to write down. If you are a List-Maker, (you know who you are) you will use this daily.

A hand-written list!

I'm a "list person;" I've got a list for everything. My husband was giving me a hard time about writing my lists on paper so I looked into list apps. I like that I still get to write the lists in my own handwriting, and I always have my lists with me. It's helpful in situations like a quick stop at the grocery store; I get everything I need. I really like it.

Buried in tons of Ads

Rapid fire advertising interrupts to the point u can't do anything. Takes $10 bucks to get rid of 'em, then u pay more for additional features like backgrounds...u might? I refuse to, especially since they don't reveal these upgrade prices until Apple asks if it is ok to charge at the last second. Too shady for me. Gotta wonder bout the source of other reviews. Really? No one else was offended? They just dumped their money into it? If u pay the price while being insulted it may be a good program but I found several others and they were grateful for my business.
