There are 2 reasons why I like using a list maker on my iPhone. The first is because I am notoriously forgetful. Sometimes I have so much going on that I forget to do things if I don’t have them written down, or set in a reminder in my calendar.
The second reason is I like to stay organized. While most list makers are kind of overkill for me, I was persistent on finding one that met my needs functionality wise, with a sharp user interface. After loads of searching, I finally came across Droplist…
I wanted an application that would open quickly and give me the immediate options to create, edit, and delete lists. Droplist definitely meets those requirements, as there is no splash screen or confusing menus to sift through.
Once installed, you simply open up the application, and you are presented with an extremely simple interface. The main screen is called the Corkboard, which is where you can view and edit all of your previously made lists. There is also a button in the top right hand corner to allow you to create a new one.
The controls are very Apple-like, making the app easy to operate. Holding down on a list title or item allows you to edit, and swiping right allows you to delete. You can even choose to have an optional box next to a list item, to manually check later as you complete the task.
Droplist also supports syncing with your DropBox account, so lists can be shared between your device and your computer. You can also set reminders for your lists, and get notified via the standard push notification system when a task is overdue.
DropList is feature-packed like some of the other options out there. But if you are like me and are looking for a lightweight list maker with a clean interface, this one is definitely top notch. If you haven’t checked it out yet, Droplist can be downloaded from iTunes for $1.99.
