Get the app that Macworld says "deserves a spot on your iPhone"! MAKE LISTS OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING Paperless is a simple but powerful app for making lists. Use it to create to do lists, make grocery lists, take notes, write an outline of a story, prepare notes for a presentation, make a list of gift ideas, plan a vacation... or anything else you'd want to make a list for. BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED Assign a fun icon to each of your lists - there are over 450 to choose from. You can also select from 30 themes to customize the app's design to your liking. SIMPLE AND VERSATILE Paperless is easy to use with a clean, elegant and well thought out interface. Each list can either be a checklist or a regular list without checkboxes, making a wide variety of uses possible. REALLY HELPS YOU GET THINGS DONE For checklists and todo lists, many people prefer using Paperless over traditional "getting things done" apps - or, they use it in addition to one. There are no due dates or priority settings, so you're left to focus on the actual tasks at hand, rather than waste time changing those settings when your priorities change. Instead, if a particular task becomes important, you can simply move it to the top of the list. AUTOMATIC BACKUP AND SYNCING Automatically backup your lists and sync them between iOS devices via a free Dropbox account. POWERFUL FEATURES - send lists via email, others can import your list into their copy of Paperless - send a plain text version of a list via iMessage, or copy it into another app - easily duplicate lists - manually reorder lists and list items - sort list items alphabetically - copy and move items from one list to another - comprehensive search - passcode lock PRAISED BY THE PRESS "Paperless deserves a spot on your iPhone" - Lex Friedman, Macworld (4.5 out of 5 mice rating) "Paperless has a permanent spot on the first page of my iPhone's home screen... it will probably earn a similar spot on yours." - Marianne Schultz, AppShopper "... a good way to ensure things get done at your own pace, free of the disappointment of missing deadlines." - Nick Spence, Macworld UK "I've been trying many To Do apps since iPhone 1.0 -- from the expensive Things to Toodledo and others -- and I don't use any of them regularly. Most just require too much effort. Paperless is the first one I've found that hits that sweet spot between being simple enough you'll actually use it and powerful enough to be useful." - Marc Zeedar, REALbasic Developer Magazine (4.8 out of 5 rating) "This is one nice-looking list / task app... As a basic list app, the beautiful Paperless reigns supreme." - Bonnie Eisenman, (4 out of 5 rating) PRAISED BY USERS "Best app ever - The most incredibly useful app I've come across. Simple, effective and bloody marvelous!!!" "The simplicity of the interface and the flexibility given to the user is perfection." "Simply loved it - Best app I've ever downloaded, my life is so organized now! ..." "After having tried a good deal of apps to get myself more organized - both free and paid - it is clear that this tops them all. Other apps presented a kind of novelty; I could fool myself into thinking that I was more organized, but it was never long before I abandoned them because it was obvious that they consumed unnecessary time. Paperless, however, has truly helped. It is streamlined, it is simple, it is sumptuous" PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW If you love Paperless, please leave a review and star rating. Thank you!



  • Job well done!

    By Nathan0001
    Paperless is a near-perfect note management and all-round personal knowledgebase with a easy-to-use and highly customizable user interface. It’s simplicity makes it extremely flexible and able to adapt to almost any note-taking need I can come up with. It’s honestly hard to think of something I would improve. I just wish there was a web-based version of Paperless that I could run in my web browser on my desktop PC. Oh, and the ability to export my notes to JSON would be nice. Just a thought. I’ve tested the developer’s successor to Paperless named “Ikiru” and I have to say it’s far inferior to Paperless in pretty much every way. I hope the developers don’t have plans of abandoning Paperless anytime soon.
  • What it does do, it does with 100% perfection

    By MarkAtlanta44
    OK, so it does not do everything that an app like this might do. But what it does do, it does with 100% perfection. I have used it for years, primarily for packing lists shopping lists and simple to do lists. For reminders, attaching photos, and other more advanced features I use the iOS built-in reminders app. But for simple, easy to use checklists, this beats the built-in Reminders app hands-down. I like it so much I just tipped the developer $10.
  • My most often and longest used app

    By pfoxsounds
    I think I’ve been using Paperless for longer than the update history shows here on the App Store. At least 8 years. Mainly it’s what my wife and I use to coordinate grocery lists, Christmas and birthday gifts for our children, and things that need doing around the house. I’m glad the developer continues to maintain it! For anyone who hasn’t browsed the help section of the app, the dev is working on a fix for iOS 13 issues such as invisible/white text and main screen sort indicators not showing (the latter is why I almost reported a bug with sorting not being available...I just can’t see the little three line symbol in edit mode).
  • What happened?

    By Superflyiceman
    This app used to be great. I’ve used it for years. Now I can’t drag items up and down to move them. I make a ton lists where I rate things. Now whatever order I entered the items that’s where they stay. I am very frustrated! Being back this feature immediately please.
  • IOS Dark Mode

    By La la 2317
    I love this app, but you can’t see the items added to a list if you are in the DARK MODE in IOS. It would be great if this could be fixed because I love this app and I LOVE dark mode. I’d love it if I could use both.
  • Edit Mode Impossible To See

    By QHung
    This update is buggy. In edit mode, the text color is white as the background, so it is impossible to see anything. I wonder how they could release this update like that. No testing at all?
  • Sad

    By Lakeapple
    Was great but needs to support dark mode. White text on light gray for note title can not be seen.
  • White font

    By Yayhaley
    Very useful app, however the font when I’m adding an item is now white so I can’t see what I’m typing.
  • Logical and easy to use

    By qmebyx
    I have used paperless for years. It is perfect for everyday life and use it daily. It can't compete with Evernote for complexity, but it's the best list app I have ever tried. Kudos to the developer.
  • Text Entry issue

    By dndell
    It’s a great app - have been using for a couple of years. Don’t know if it’s IOS 13 or recent app changes, but when entering a new text item within a list, the input text is white (almost invisible). Once the entry is complete, though, it goes back to black, so the issue can be worked around.
