"Finally, an app easy enough for me!" - Mom

Simplist is the list management app designed to be beautifully simple. Its clean minimalist interface makes it very easy to use and fits right in with the other Apple bundled apps.

Use Simplist to create checklists, grocery lists, shopping lists, task and to-do lists. If you're looking for a more complex GTD time management app, I would recommend OmniFocus, Things or Todo. But if you simply want to create lists lightning fast, Simplist is the app for you!

- Ultra-configurable app badge

Feature request

I have found Simplist very helpful and easy to use in the past. I used it for a few years, a few years ago, and purchased the upgrade. I admire your emphasis on simplicity. But I have one feature request that might seem “complicated” for your consideration. I think it should not significantly change the simplicity of the interface.

My request: could you make Simplist networked between devices? Auto-syncing? Maybe even with a web interface?

I’m sure this would not be simple to implement. But if you were able to do it, I think the user experience could remain simple. And Simplist would then probably become my favorite list management app.

(I am aware of your import-export support, I’m talking about syncing behind the scenes.)

Best Simple List Maker BUT need to share lists between devices.

Updated Review:

This is still my favorite list app, which I have used for several years. The only thing that this app needs to be five stars is cloud sync, so that it will sink on all devices in real time. Please update this app to include iCloud sync!
I have always use this is my favorite list manager. Now that the iPad support was fixed, there needs to be a way to import lists from the app on your iPhone.

AWESOME APP BUT ICON IS STILL UNATTRACTIVE!! More people might try it if icon looked better!!! I still think this is the BEST simple to do list!! A better looking icon would attract more people to try.
I LOVE THIS APP! It is my 'go to' list app. I just wish it was a bit more visually appealing....Would love to be able to change fonts & font colors! Also. Would like a change of icon to be more attractive. Otherwise, perfect!

I have always been a list person, and no matter how many list apps I buy, I always seem to use Simplist for my lists. It is sooooo easy! I love it. I do agree, however, with the previous reviewer who requested an updated, better looking app icon.

This app would be greatly improved, and would appeal to a much larger audience if the following changes were made:
1. Change of Design of app icon.
2. Allow customization with Choice of Font and Choice of Font Color....maybe choice of background color too.

Great Program ~ Just one request...

Let me start by emphasizing that this is a great little application. You can create multiple lists, sort them pretty much anyway you like, prioritize items, check and/or delete items, ad personal notes to each item, set due dates, etc. etc. etc. Best of all, you can do so very quickly and at great ease (i.e. not complicated like many other similar programs).

I do have one small request for the developer:

Presently, when the application is closed, the total number of items that one has stored in the application is displayed on the icon. When one manages countless items, this large number becomes meaningless (and in that regard useless). I think it would be much better if the number of items listed on the icon would only pertain to the high priority items. This would give the user more meaningful information, namely the number items that require immediate attention.

Other than that, this is hands-down a 5-star program. I have owned several other "To-do"-List programs. But none of them have all the features this one has with such a simple way to get the job done.
