  • Listmaker: New List App for the iPhone

    I'm happy to announce Listmaker, a new iPhone app that synchronizes lists with the web. Listmaker is a minimalist list making app that synchronizes its lists to Toodledo for online access. Although Listmaker can be used as a simple to do list, it is not meant to be a replacement for your regular GTD system. Instead, Listmaker is meant to be a complement to your regular system, tracking all those things that aren't actionable. For instance, you can use Listmaker to create a grocery list, gift list, travel checklist, or a list of books to read -- whatever lists you'd usually jot down on a sticky note. And since it synchronizes with Toodledo, you can access your lists online and share them with others.

    I can hear you now, "Why does the iPhone need yet another list app?" Here's why: There are few list apps for the iPhone that combine simplicity with the ability to synchronize data to an online web service. The most popular one is Zenbe Lists, and although it does its job well, it has some limitations: it offers too limited a selection of data fields, it has limited sorting options, and the online service is a closed ecosystem without the ability to import or export your data.

    Listmaker solves these problems. It maintains a certain minimalism that keeps clutter out of the way, but it still offers the features that you need. In Listmaker you can individually sort lists alphabetically, by due date, or manually, and since it syncs to Toodledo, you can take advantage of all the features it offers including the ability to import, export, and share your data. Listmaker also offers a few more data fields that I consider essential, namely a notes field and the ability to create a hierarchy of sub-lists. In short, Listmaker does its best to stay out of your way while offering all the options you need to effectively access your lists.

      Version 1.2.0 of Listmaker is now available in the iPhone App Store. Version 1.2.0 adds some new features and fixes some bugs. These changes are included in version 1.2.0:

      - Added search to all lists. Just scroll to the top of the list to search.

      - Changed task detail display so that when you tap a list item's note, it takes you to a screen that parses the note for web addresses, email addresses, and telephone numbers and displays them as hyperlinks. When those hyperlinks are tapped, Safari, Mail, or the Phone are opened, as appropriate.

      - Listmaker can now turn the contents of your clipboard (or "pasteboard") into list items. Just copy text that contains the list items (perhaps from an email you received), click on the lightning bolt to open the Quick List screen, dismiss the keyboard, and use the button in the toolbar. This feature will turn each line of text in your pasteboard into a separate list item. Great for when you get a grocery list sent to you by email!

      - Improved the user interface.

      - Fixed a bug that offset due dates when leaving Daylight Savings time.

      - Fixed some other minor user interface bugs.

        New Release of Listmaker

        I'm happy to announce that a new version of Listmaker is now available on the App Store. Listmaker is a simple list manager for the iPhone and iPod touch that syncs with Toodledo. I designed Listmaker to supplement my regular GTD system, and to handle all the reference lists that I manage: shopping lists, gift lists, travel checklists, and the like. Version 1.3.0 is a major release that adds new features, and updates the visual look of Listmaker.

        Here's a quick run down of what's new:

        - Now requires iPhone OS version 3.1 or later
        - Localized into English, Spanish, German, French, and Japanese
        - Most cells now have dynamic height so that entire text can be displayed without being cut off
        - Added toolbar button that completes or uncompletes entire lists
        - Now warns users when items are "due soon"
        - Updated artwork
        - More robust Toodledo synchronization

        And here's a few promo codes you can use to download a free copy of Listmaker from iTunes:


        For more info about Listmaker, visit its webpage at Or you can download it directly from the App Store.

        I hope that you find Listmaker to be a useful addition to your regular GTD system. Enjoy!
