Pocket Lists is as simple to use as the name suggests but also offers some advanced features. Unlike some other apps, Pocket Lists designed its features to both make the app easier to use and increase its functionality, e.g., allowing users to set priorities by adding exclamation points to tasks, swiping tasks in a list to indent and thereby create a subtask, and understanding "human language" such as that 7pm means 7:00 pm. The main reason Pocket Lists isn't rated higher is that it is more geared towards all lists than to do lists, and therefore may not be the best task manager for many. Syncs with: Toodledo, Google Tasks, Calendar, Wi-Fi. Additional Cost: None. Reminders: Integrates with Notification Center, location-based reminders.

What is it about?

Pocket Lists is a beautifully designed app for managing checklists and to-do lists, focusing on important tasks, and collaborating on checklists with friends. The app excels as both an everyday to-do list organizer with sophisticated reminder functionality, and as a checklist app for groceries, travel packing, Christmas lists, and more.

For those who...

  • It’s ideal for everything from list creation to monitoring important collaborative projects.

Not for those who...

  • For an app that’s pretty customizable, it is a bit odd that users aren’t allowed to adjust the font, font size, or font color. If you have a concern regarding readability, this probably isn’t the app for you.

Why we love it

If you’ve been looking for a task manager that can replace Reminders, this is the one. It can be as basic or as complicated as you want.

App Store Description

Pocket Lists is a beautifully designed app for managing checklists and to-do lists, focusing on important tasks, and collaborating on checklists with friends. The app excels as both an everyday to-do list organizer with sophisticated reminder functionality, and as a checklist app for groceries, travel packing, Christmas lists, and more.

You’ll love Pocket Lists for being powerful yet surprisingly easy to use. The app’s feature set makes it a superb replacement for most checklist apps, including the stock Reminders app:

• Color-coded re-usable checklists with a variety of beautiful icons and cover images for all sorts of things.

• To-do Stream: a dynamic to-do list (filter) that collects to-dos among all your checklists, and displays them in the priority & due order, allowing you to focus on what’s important right now.

• Apple Watch app: manage your To-Do Stream on your Apple Watch, stay up to date on what's UP NEXT on your To-Do Stream at a glance, receive notifications on upcoming to-dos.

• All types of to-do notifications: due date, due time, repeating, and location-based — drop pin anywhere on a map, select either “arrive to” or “leave from”, and even define a location radius.

• Set due reminders by typing naturally: “Meeting tomorrow morning”, “Car service saturday 7pm”, “Prepare christmas gift list on dec 20 every year”, “Cinema friday night” and so on. The app automatically understands due date from your input, and sets a reminder. Understands all languages the app is localized into! Approved by native speakers.

• Calendar view: rotate your iPhone into landscape mode to see all your scheduled to-dos in a monthly calendar layout.

• Import to-dos and events from iOS stock Reminders and Calendar apps.
