Pocket Lists to-do list app

Pocket Lists is the ultimate universal checklist & to-do list app for iPhone and iPad. Pocket Lists allows you to easily manage to-do lists, focus on to-dos which are important right now, and to collaborate on to-do lists with friends.

The app is powerful yet extremely easy to use — a superb upgrade for most to-do list apps including the stock Reminders app.

800,000+ app downloads, 30,000+ users in the cloud, 12 languages.

To-do Lists

To-dos are grouped in lists, which is a natural way of organizing. No matter what your to-dos are: a new project, a grocery list which you will discard once it is completed, global traveling plans, or movies to watch — lists give you the freedom of always having these things at hand. All in one app.

The app offers a variety of colors and beautiful icons for customizing the look of your agenda.

To-do Stream

The Stream is a dynamic to-do list which collects to-dos among all your lists, and displays them in the priority & due order. This is what makes Pocket Lists a real productivity app rather than another ordinary checklist app.

Stream is ready to use right out of the box. No settings, no complex to-do tags and contexts. Just merely focused on what you need to do right now. You can add to-dos directly to the Stream just as into a regular to-do list; which is useful when you have not yet decided, which is the right list to put a to-do into.

Sync & Collaborate

Sync Pocket Lists apps installed on your iOS devices, have an always-up-to-date backup, and collaborate on your to-do lists with friends over the Pocket Lists Cloud.

Pocket Lists supports all major types of to-do notifications: due, on location, and repeating.

To-do list due notifications


The Pocket Lists to-do list app always notifies you when your next to-do is due. Due can be set for a to-do or an entire to-do list to all-day or exact time.

This is a personal assistant you can rely on.

To-do location based notifications


Pocket Lists app notifies you about to-dos when you arrive to or leave from a location. Set locations by dropping pins directly on a map and defining a radius from 100 ft (50 m) to 40 mi (60 km), or by choosing addresses from your contact list.

Location-based notificatons require iPhone 4, 4S or iPhone 5, and will not work on iPod touch and iPhone 3GS.

Repeating to-do notifications


Repeating to-dos utilize the repeat-after-completion model: whenever you complete a repeating to-do, it is automatically resumed on the next due date.

Repeating option can be applied to both a single to-do and an entire to-do list.

To-do lists from real photos

Pocket Lists OCR

Yes, it really works! Take pictures of text on your iPhone or iPad, and instantly create to-do lists from the text captured. Built-in OCR mechanism (optical character recognition) automatically fetches text from photos.

 Super cool for creating checklists based on the content you find in print media; e.g. cookbook recipes, as seen in the Pocket Lists video ad.

The OCR function is standalone, no Internet connection is required. Can be used for typewritten or printed text only, and won't recognize handwritten text.

One more thing...

  • Pocket Lists syncing features: Googel Tasks, Toodledo, Calendar, Reminders


    Pocket Lists can be easily synced with the stock Reminders app (requires iOS 6 or higher), Calendar app, Google Tasks, and Toodledo. Syncs with multiple services can be enabled at the same time.

  • To-do list passcode protection

    Passcode-protected Lists

    Protect individual secret lists with 4-digit passcodes. To-dos from a protected list can be viewed only inside the list, and will not be visible anywhere in the app, e.g. in the Stream.

  • To-do hierarchy

    To-do Hierarchy

    When inside a to-do list, swipe to-dos left or right to define hierarchy, and make your complex to-do lists look sleek and easy-to-read.

  • Copy-and-paste to-do creation

    Copy & Paste Add

    When adding to-dos, copy and paste text from an email, a note or a web page. Pocket Lists will split pasted text into lines and create multiple to-dos promptly.

  • To-do notifications

    Reminders, Priorities, Notes

    A to-do or a to-do list can be assigned a priority (not set, low, medium, high), contain a text note, and have multiple active reminders at the same time (due + location + repeating).

  • Exclusive shake to re-sort feature

    Shake to Sort

    Shake your iPhone to drop all completed to-dos to the bottom of the list.

  • Inline to-dos add

    Easy Postpone

    Every to-do with a due date or time can be quickly postponed. Reminder is re-set accordingly.

  • To-do search feature

    To-do Search

    Instantly search for to-dos and to-do lists. Nothing to comment here. It just works.

  • To-do list Facebook and Twitter integration

    Twitter & Facebook

    Tell your friends and followers when another important to-do list is completed! Without leaving the app.

  • Exclusive Wi-Fi/Bluetooth collaboration feature

    Multiplayer” Mode iPhone only

    A fun way to go shopping with your spouse, or to pack luggage together: connect two or more iPhones with the running Pocket Lists app via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and collaborate on your lists. No Internet connection is required — the feature is powered by Apple’s Gamekit engine which is usually utilized in games.

  • Start over a to-do list feature


    When you complete a to-do list, instantly start it over or archive it.

    Archiving is a way to temporary hide to-do lists from the app, without permanently deleting them. Great for storing to-do lists which you use rarely, but will probably need someday in the future.

    Speaks 12 languages

    The Pocket Lists to-do list app is fully localized in English, Deutsch, 日本語, Italiano, Nederlands, Español, Français, Русский, Português, Dansk, 简体中文, 繁體中文.
