[prMac.com] Fishers, Indiana - Daze End Software today announced the release of a new version of Listmaker, their list manager for the iPhone and iPod touch. Listmaker is a simple tool for storing and organizing user-created lists. Major features include support for nested sublists and web synchronization. This new version adds often requested features such as searching, and the ability to create lists from the contents of the iPhone's clipboard.
"Listmaker aims to find the sweet spot between simplicity and power," said Charles Perry, owner of Daze End Software. "In order to keep it easy to use, Listmaker embraces minimalism in its interface. List items contain only a title, a note, and a due date. But at the same time, Listmaker offers advanced features like web synchronization, the ability to email lists, and nested sublists. This combination makes for a very useful tool."
One thing that sets Listmaker apart from its competition is its ability to share lists with others. Lists can be emailed to others from within the app, or they can be synchronized with the popular, and free, Toodledo web service. Through Toodledo, users can access their tasks with a number of different applications and share lists with others.
Although Listmaker is often used as a simple task list, that wasn't how it started out, according to Perry. "Actually, I originally wrote Listmaker because I needed a place to store grocery lists, travel checklists, and the like. I wrote it with the intention that it would serve as the reference portion of my personal Getting Things Done (GTD) system. I only included the due date field because I thought that someone might find it helpful. As it turns out, most users of Listmaker now use it to track 'to do' lists. I think that shows the flexibility of the tool."
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Listmaker is available to be purchased through the iPhone App Store at a price of $2.99 USD. For those that would prefer to "try before you buy," a limited version called Listmaker Lite is available in the App Store for free. App Store promo codes, which allow for review copies of Listmaker to be downloaded, are available to the press upon request (U.S. App Store only).
