"Customization out the wazoo. Very nice interface for such a full-featured app. It works almost precisely the way you expect an iOS app to work, and it’s jam-packed with features that leave it balancing lightly on the line between a powerful list app and a simple database. And yet, with all these complexities, the lists themselves are easy to use, easy to organize, and easy to update."

Exactly what I need!
I was totally enamored with a competing app until Apple announced that it would not run on the upcoming iOS 11 platform. The developer of that otherwise excellent app announced that due to personal reasons he would be unable to upgrade the app. I frantically searched for a replacement, downloading every TODO app that was available without finding one that suited me. That is until I tried this app. JOY! I organize my life around my business with 22 workers, my amateur radio hobby, my astronomy hobby, my beer brewing hobby, my 2 podcasts, my honey-do lists and so much more that this app handles easily and without any fuss. It offers WAY MORE options then what I use, but that wide array of options allowed me to set up this app exactly as I need it. Because of the many options available, it took me a week to set it up exactly to my liking ... I kept finding things to implement that I never had in my previous app. The short instructional videos are too short and the instructions are performed much too quickly for a new user to follow. They, frankly are not of much use but the written notes do alright. If the developer is paying attention, he may want to revisit the instructional videos. Nevertheless, this is a strong 5-star app. Highly recommended by this power user.
For the detail oriented, ADD, and OCD person this app is a life saver!
I have been using list master for several years. I truly don't know how I would function without it. I have lists for everything. Measurements for furniture/rooms/appliances/tires. You name it. Christmas lists for each person. A main grocery list that can send to an individual one. Birthday list :size list /price comparison/ books. And on and on. I love that I can make this app fit my parameters. The only bad thing for me was my phone crashed and I had to get a new one. I thought I had a back up set up and yep you guessed it it wasn't. Talk about flipped out! The small saving grace was that I had emailed a couple of my lists to myself I was distraught. When I contacted list master the person was very nice and tried to explain how I could do a daily back up, but I am ashamed to say as many times as I have tried it's not there. I am not a neophyte when it comes to these things. It would be nice to have STEP by STEP instructions on how to do this. Even a detailed video. Other than that this is a wonderful app but if I can't get a back up it will only be good till my next disaster.
Significant sync problems
Updated 27 Jan
I’m afraid that since his server problem was resolved it has appeared once again. For weeks now syncing causes the app to crash. Even more concerning is that his developer website (and database home) throws a 403 error (access forbidden) when trying to open it. Still out there Harris?
Harris, your app is great but the iOS sync options are a significant flaw. I won’t use Dropbox due to it’s security flaws which leaves your unique server option which seems very old school. The fix you often provide is to “nuc and pave”, essentially log out from each device and re-sync. It has worked (painfully) in the past but I’m trying again tonight and it’s taken a long time (over 10 minutes etc) without even a log-out response from one app/device and I gave up. At this point I’m going to rely on the app on one device and forget using it on the other. I understand paying Apple for iCloud sync would be expensive but at this point I’d be willing to pay extra for the option. Please consider a more expensive app that includes iCloud sync as an option. I’d pay for it and am considering other app options if I can find one. Sorry for the bad news but - time marches on.
Developer Response ,
