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!



  • Best list out there!

    By Rapunzll
    I’ve been using this app for years and use it so often it’s on my home screen. I have a list for going to the grocery store, a list of things to grab out of the house in case of an emergency and I have to leave quickly, lists of just general things I need to get done on specific days. Heck I have a bunch of lists on here! This is a very useful and easy to use app.
  • 6+ years and I love it…but would love one feature

    By Jdub7272
    If possible it would be super helpful to be able to pin repeat tasks and even lists to the top of lists while still being able to add new items to the top. Maybe even a way to colorize the different lists if so desired. Either way I’m still a user and will continue
  • The best list & “to do” app around!

    I accidentally deleted this app and finally found it again. I’m in love with this app. There isn’t another app that compares to the ease of use and organization of this one!
  • Great app

    By Southwind816Wanda
    I’ve used this app for several years on my iPhone and it works great for all my lists. My memory isn’t as good anymore, and this really helps keep me organized. My only issue - and it’s a very small one for me - is that it doesn’t sync correctly with my iPad. I managed to get it to sync once, although it merged several of my lists when I did, but then it wouldn’t sync to the iPad again after I made several changes on the iPhone. The only way I’ve found to keep the devices synced is to make a backup of the latest changes and email it, then open the email and download the backup to the other device. It works, but it’s klugey.

  • Best organizational App ever!

    By Dmey1
    This app is so user friendly and fun to use. I use it constantly every day. Love that you can go back to your grocery list and uncheck items to return to the list. It helps you keep track of what you bought last time and what you need. I honestly don’t know what I would do without this app!
