Ratings and Reviews
Ten Thumbs Up
I'm long overdue writing a review for this app; I owe it to the developers. I can't remember what year I started using it but it was before the name changed, and I think it was on my iPhone 3GS! This app is simply a part of my travel routine, every trip, every time.
An example of its utility: I take a kayaking trip every summer to the same cabin. This app takes care of every trivial question. ("Is this the place that doesn't provide paper towels—or is it dish soap?") Now I don't have to strain a single brain cell. A week before leaving I open the app and it's all there: I know to pack an extension cord for the second bedroom because the outlet is too far from the bed. We need 6 large, 8 medium and 4 small bungees for the kayaks. The coffee pot uses size-2 basket-style coffee filters. You get the drift. Organized and stress-free!
I admit that I'd be screwed if I ever lost my lists but that, thankfully, has never happened to me. I do try to remember to back up my important lists from time to time.
An A-plus app, invaluable. Ten thumbs up!
I like this app—it's useful—HOWEVER, whenever I use it, it has deleted my lists and I haven't done anything to it like removing it. It stays on my phone, but saves nothing every single time.
THAT was my OLD review! I've had this app for years now and it's become invaluable to me. Over the years, the improvements have been great and it now saves my lists. If all the apps I've invested in, this one was one of the best ones I've gotten. :)
Update again a year later: All lists were wiped out and I had about 20 of them. This is a great app, but they really should have worked out how to not let this happen by now. If you buy this and have an important list, make sure you either back it up in writing or else buy an app that doesn’t delete your lists!
I’ve been using this app for almost five years. I love it, and use it as a checklist every time I travel. There have been many updates over the years, the most extensive was very recent. I like the fact that they are on top of keeping everything up-to-date, while also making so many improvements. I upgraded to Pro, and it was well worth it. Highly recommended if like to be organized, and you don’t want to leave something important behind when you travel.
