Paperless: Lists + Checklists - App Review

 If you can't stand lists (or people who use lists), look away now; this is definitely not for you. if you're still reading then, you have found an App that handles lists, especially ones you reuse, with elegant ease. Paperless is not a substitute for a task management system but, it handles all sorts of lists and check lists (with and without completion boxes).
Taking the simplest form of list... a shopping list, that easiest of tasks that is full of pitfalls. You can enter your shopping list and then enter individual notes (the blue tin, do not buy brand X if unavailable). Lists can easily be imported as text from other sources.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Lists are assigned individual names and icons, making them easy to recognise. You can then easily change the order, not only for your lists, but also the content of those lists (taking the earlier shopping example, you can have it ordered so that you don't need to walk round the supermarket three times, unless you need the exercise, in which case you could make it even more complicated). Each item can have a check box (or not) and as you tick, the item is moved to the bottom of the screen. Once you have finished, if it is a list to reuse, just use the 'uncheck all' button and you have your list ready for next time. It's very easy to use and pleasing to the eye.

Cost
There are two versions of this App. Paperless Lite is absolutely free and allows you to check out how well it works. The limitations of the Lite version are that it is limited to 30 items and cannot synchronise with Dropbox. Once you are convinced that this App is for you, just upgrade to Paperless; it is a low cost App.

Indispensability
Well, this all depends on your view of checklists!

Dependability
Absolutely no problems.

Security
There is no sharing of information, except for Dropbox on the full version, so no security issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:
Must have, if you're into lists.
