  • Sync with Google Tasks, Toodledo and Calendar app (iOS 4.0 or higher). All syncs can be enabled in the app simultaneously thus making Pocket Lists a great to-do aggregator.
  • “Multiplayer”: collaborate on your lists via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth without Internet connection (based on Apple’s Gamekit engine). A perfect way to go shopping with your spouse, or to pack luggage together!
  • OCR: Built-in Optical Character Recognition mechanism allows you to create to-do lists from real photos taken from your iPhone. Awesome for checklists based on what you find in print media (e.g. cookbook recipes). Supported languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian. iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S are recommended for OCR because of the higher camera quality. For typewritten and printed text only.

Pocket Lists is beautifully designed and so easy to use. Features like location-based notifications and the ability to create lists from real photos put Pocket Lists at the top of it’s genre. There is nothing like being reminded about something to-do when you arrive or leave a location. The built-in optical character recognition mechanism lets you create checklists from real photos. It’s features like these that makes Pocket Lists price more than worth it, at $2.99 – £1.49 the app is perfectly priced.

Try out Pocket Lists, it is the best to-do app we have come across.
