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!



  • A plea for more

    By @Macstros
    Jim: Paperless is an exceptional app. iCloud support would make it more useful where it can be synced between devices. I have tried your Ikiru app (your other lists app with the option of iCloud support) and it doesn't serve my needs the way Paperless does. The beauty of P+ is that it is clean, simple and easy to use. Dropbox sync worked just fine for a while, but it's become an antiquated standalone option. Your other users mention the need for iCloud support in their reviews. Eventually adding a macOS app would be ideal as I spend a lot of my time in front of a desktop/laptop. iCloud syncing would tie Paperless iOS and macOS apps together to make a complete package.
  • My only shopping list app

    By zenjen2020
    I’ve had this app for years, completely dependable and easy to use. I have lists for every place I shop, for packing for trips and to-do lists. Easy to text full or partial lists to the Apple Watch for hands off shopping. The only list app I’ll ever want.
  • Fabulous

    By Just Me 358
    Use it for everything: To Do’s, Shopping, Packing, Bucket List, and more. Only minor flaw is no direct way to print a list to paper.
  • Keep coming back

    By Robkonw
    I have ten screens worth of apps (including folders), and have kept looking for a similar app that also has a MacOS version that syncs. And I keep coming back, because this developer hit a sweet spot of usefulness, ease of use, and usability. When you have a lot of apps, you don’t want to go down the re-learning curve if you haven’t used all functions lately. Here’s my point: though I look at lots of apps, I don’t always use editing and other features. This app is so intuitive that using, changing, deleting, updating seems obvious even if I haven’t done some of those functions lately. I recently moved from DropBox to iCloud, and so my only request is that iCloud is supported when syncing. This is the only app I value that does not have an iCloud option. I’ve deleted all other apps that don’t support iCloud. I have nothing against DropBox, but the plan I had increased in price by 25% for features I don’t use. Oh well. Though I paid for this app years ago, I’m adding to the Tip Jar. Because there are too many subscription apps that hope you don’t notice the monthly withdrawals, without offering proportionate features and usefulness.
  • Perfect memory tool for forgetful people

    By Njeanne
    I use this app to make up for my forgetfulness. For example, I have a list of things to bring on hikes. It is annoying to be on the trail and realize you forgot the sunscreen. I also use it for packing lists for traveling. I have lists for travel to warm climates and lists for international destinations. I literally use this app everyday. I have dozens of lists. The one enhancement I would like is to have a way to check an item as “not applicable “. I would like to keep an item on the list with a N/A rather than delete it or check it. Deleting it removes it from the list when it may be needed another time. Checking it means it was done or packed. An example is insecticide. I may not need to pack that if I travel to a northern climate, but it may be needed for a tropical destination. I would like to create a master packing list with a N/A category for items not needed for a particular outing. I hope the developers will consider this.
  • Great app

    By PAGGK
    Very easy to use (better than their later Ikiru). I like that if you have it passcode locked it actually locks the second you go out of the app (Ikiru doesn’t).
  • HELP

    By Boring97306
    I have used this app for years and have lots of information saved on it. Today when I opened it it kept crashing. I am using 13.3.1. I restarted my phone and that didn’t help. Can you please help?
  • Very Useful

    By tjean51
    I have been using this app for several years and it is very useful. I have lists for specific wholesalers, grocery shopping by specific store, family groups, and even several years of Christmas lists. The only item on my wish list is the ability to alphabetize the main screen that shows all my lists! If the individual list screen can be alphabetized why can’t the main screen?? Please try to update this.
  • Not so much

    By JodyKent
    I loved this app until I upgraded my phone. You’re unable to move the lists from one phone to another, so everything is lost.
  • Love it, but..

    By saricross
    It’s nearly perfect, but I wish you could set timed reminders on things and get a push notification. Then I could get off the horrid apple reminders altogether.
