Paperless app review: for all your list-making needs!



Many list-making apps for iPhone and iPad focus on prioritizing and establishing due dates, but this clever innovation focuses instead on the tasks themselves; ideal for those of us who frequently changing schedules who don’t want to waste time adjusting settings every other day!

I must admit that when I first started looking through this app I really didn’t expect much, mainly because I’ve reviewed so many list creator apps that the genre has become very tiresome, at least to my mind.

Despite my initial reservations, Paperless is actually a pretty novel development, and as I mentioned above, it focuses more on the tasks rather than having you establish due dates and such. Personally I prefer to work this way because more often than not, the priorities quickly become self-evident.

You can easily synchronize all of your lists across your multiple iOS devices, and the lists can even be shared with your friends and colleagues online via Facebook, iMessage, and email, so you should have no problem keeping everyone in the loop.

Enjoy a Unique and Stylish Interface Design

I really like what the developer has done with the interface in this app; rather than opt for a basic, generic style they’ve created something completely original which can be tailored to your preferences by changing the color scheme.

There are also more than 450 icons to choose from, and this is a great way of creating a quick and easy way to spot what you need while you’re thumbing through some of your larger lists. Of course you could just use the search facility if you’re in a major hurry!
