Create and edit checklists and most importantly tick off completed items. It is great for reusable and easily editable checklists to make sure you don't forget anything. Lists that you want again and again are the real focus.

This is the non-syncing version of the app. Fast List Sync which uses iCloud is also available in the App Store. There is a comparison of the two below.

Ideal for shopping, packing or keeping track of just about anything. Particularly useful for keeping track of what you need to do.

Version 1 had great reviews (4.5* average across all stores). See the website to see reviews from all countries app stores: Version 2 is even better so please try it and review.

No advertising, sign in or registration required and none of your information is stored online, everything is in your device all the time even when you are offline. Your privacy is respected at all times, no data is sent to the developer. Crash reports collected via Apple if you have opted in to share these with developers, nothing is directly collected from the app..

Lists can include nested sublists to help you organise the list. And the list can be reordered by clicking the Edit button and dragging the item you want to move.

Quick buttons to hide the completed items and to view all items as a flat list (especially useful in combination to quickly see the last remaining items).

Sublists indicate the number of completed and the total number of items within them. They can also be reordered in the edit mode.

Sir👍 ,

Much Appreciated

This is a fantastic app. I had to come and write a review to say thank you. It does exactly what I was looking for. I love the fact that you can check off things as you go along in the check box. Then, you can uncheck it and use the list over again say for instance for the next trip. It's easy to use. Straightforward and convenient. Your folks did a wonderful job coming up with the perfect app for quick lists. Thank you very much. I would, and will recommend this to everyone.

This app is fantastic! I used to write down a list on a piece of paper, then leave the house and forget the paper. With this app my lists are always on my phone. Easy to use. A must-have! You won't forget things now!

Please make a way to lock list

Please make a way to lock the list from edit.

I have emailed about this possibility before because hundreds of guys use your product for aircraft preflight and setup … but it is SO frustrating that if you barely miss the check box, it goes into edit mode, or rename or something. When your in a hurry, this is very frustrating. I love your product though … except this.

Any chance I can spend the word that you may be coming out with a way to lock the list from edit/rename/details functionality… then a single button to unlock entire list so it can be edited when you want to … but not if your finger misses while utilizing the checklist?
