Pocket Lists for Apple Watch


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

To-do Stream

The Stream is a dynamic to-do list which collects to-dos among all your checklists, 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 new to-dos directly to the Stream just as into a regular to-do list, which is really useful when you have not yet decided, which is the right checklist to put a to-do into.

200+ colorful icons for your checklists

The app offers a variety of beautiful colorful icons for just all sorts of checklists you might have. With the ability to assign different colors to your lists, it makes working with your lists super easy and pleasant.

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

Due reminders


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

This is a personal assistant you can rely on.

Location-based reminders


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.

Repeating reminders


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 checklist.

Natural Input

Pocket Lists app understands your input and automatically sets a reminder according to what you typed. Here are few (of many!) examples of how you can add to-dos:

— meeting tomorrow morning
— car service saturday 7pm
— prepare christmas gift list on dec 20
— cinema fri night
— revise site conversions in two weeks
— soccer game every week on sunday

Natural Input feature understands all 13 languages the app is localized into. Approved by native speakers.

Pocket Lists Human Language feature

Checklists from real photos

OCR for checklists

Yes, it really works! Take pictures of text on your iPhone or iPad, and instantly create checklists 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.
