Keep stylish shopping and to-do lists with Lister for iPhone

Lister is stylish new list app for the iPhone. It offers a nice, clean interface for shopping and to-do lists that can be password protected on a per-list basis. You can also add pricing to shopping list items so that you can quickly see the total cost associated with each list.

Lister supports two different types of lists: shopping and to-do. With both types, you can assign a unique password to each list if you desire to. From the List View, you can quickly see all your lists, how many items are in each list, the date it was created, and for shopping lists, the total cost associated with them.

When creating a shopping list, you can assign each item to a category so that they are nicely organized in your list. You can also add amounts such as 3 pieces, 7 boxes, 3 jars, and 10 packets. If you want to keep track of the monetary value of the items on your list, Lister also lets you enter dollar amounts for the item you are adding and keeps a running total for you.

To-do lists in Lister feature a much more stripped down user interface so that you can quickly and easily add items to these lists. You just type in your list item or select it from the list of previously used entries and move on. When you complete a task, simply check it off.

So far, I really like Lister. It's a nice compromise between a fully-featured list app and a stripped-down-to-just-the-basics list app. It does not have a reminders feature, so if that's something you rely on, Lister is not for you. If you're looking for a stylish way to keep traditional shopping and to-do lists, however, then you may want to give Lister a look!

Keep stylish shopping and to-do lists with Lister for iPhone


my one thing about lists apps and to do apps is sometimes they are so involved that it takes longer to enter all the crap then it does to just grab scrap paper and scribble it down. And i'm not that big on making to do lists. I don't normally need a list i keep it i my head. But for groceries i often end up just using whatever stock app there is to make a quick rough list like, "apples, bananas, bread, chicken breats." If the grocery app get's to complicated it's normally not my fav. I have been trying an app called "Catch" recently. it's got a bunch of not taking things all in one. didn't think i'd use it but so far i have and haven't deleted it.

Nice write up on this app. I agree with what @9thWonder said. I'm always in search of the perfect grocery list app. But they are try to make things so easy that they over think the process. I don't care about isle number, or price per ounce. I just want to remember what I need so I don't have to make a trip back to the store! So I still find myself jotting down what I need on scrap paper, or simply using the build in notes app.

But for .99, I'd give this one a try.

I'm also one who is constantly looking for the best grocery shopping app and have tried many and so far Lister is the only one that I have kept and consistently use. Most have too much stuff I won't use and some are just too bare. I also like the default font size used in this app. Being able to enter an item (and quantity) into a group or section of a store is how I shop to save time. Love the write up and honesty of it..........very helpful.
