“MAKE LISTS OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING

Paperless is a simple but powerful app for making lists. Use it to create to do lists, make grocery lists, take notes, write an outline of a story, prepare notes for a presentation, make a list of gift ideas, plan a vacation… or anything else you’d want to make a list for.

BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED

Assign a fun icon to each of your lists – there are over 450 to choose from. You can also select from 30 themes to customize the app’s design to your liking.

SIMPLE AND VERSATILE

Paperless is easy to use with a clean, elegant and well thought out interface. Each list can either be a checklist or a regular list without checkboxes, making a wide variety of uses possible.

REALLY HELPS YOU GET THINGS DONE

For checklists and todo lists, many people prefer using Paperless over traditional “getting things done” apps – or, they use it in addition to one. There are no due dates or priority settings, so you’re left to focus on the actual tasks at hand, rather than waste time changing those settings when your priorities change. Instead, if a particular task becomes important, you can simply move it to the top of the list.”
