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!

    I use this app all the time. However, I wish you would add an alarm feature. I use it as a reminder of things I need to do. It would be helpful if I could add a reminder to pop up that I can select. I know my calendar does that already but a backup would be Great!

    I love this app. I’ve had it for years. It does just what I need it to. Me LIFE is in this app. The little icons make all the difference. I’ve tried converting to other tools but I keep coming back to the simplicity and ease of use of Paperless. Easy to reorder whole lists or individual items on a list. And look - I just LIKE the little icons. ikiru is NOT the same.

    Excellent app. User friendly and very versatile. I depend on this app for all kinds of things both simple and complex. I love it.
  • Almost the best list...

    By RLGn323
    I've loved lists all my life. But, they all fell short until this one. Versatile, informative, and simple to use. That's what I like. But, I can’t believe that for an app that makes organization its function, I can’t believe that the ability to alphabetize doesn’t extend to the second tier. I use this for so many functions, but the best by far has been my weekly shopping list. Once my list is made, I can share it with my family to be sure they pick up exactly what’s needed. But, while the Item Name can be organized from A-Z, the Notes information doesn’t get the same chance at proper organization. I can only wish and dream that one day, I’ll click a button and my list will be perfectly organized. But, hey! A boy can dream.

    It would be nice if you could share lists between two or more people. Link the list somehow so if one person added something then the other person’s list would be updated to match.

    I love this app! So helpful to be able to make an entry right away when I think of it. I call it my second brain 😁
  • I absolutely can’t live without this app!

    I pray that this paperless app never goes away! I use this every day all day! It’s fantastic and makes sending and using shopping lists, packing lists, bills list, etc, etc so easy! I love that I can send a grocery list via text or email to my husband or that I can repurpose an old trip packing list if I’m returning to the same destination at a later date. It really helps keep my life together. Thank you Paperless!🙏

    I have had this app for years and prefer it over the standard “notes” app on iPhones. I like that it’s not complicated to use. I do use trello and Asana for some things when I need more functionality, but I use paperless way more often...pretty much daily. The only thing I would LOVE is to be able to sort the list by “last used.” It would be so handy for the lists I use the most to stay towards the top. The search bar works great, and of course, I can manually edit/arrange the lists, but as I add new lists, I would have to keep rearranging. Not a huge deal, but it would be amazing!
  • One time use excellent app
