Priority wrangling with elegance.

"Short List is exquisite… very nicely done."

- Binary Hammer

"This app is AWESOME. Simplicity and elegance! Short List will always reside on my dock."

- nerakeel


Capturing every detail of a busy life isn't easy but many productivity apps attempt to do precisely that. The results can be complicated.

Short List takes a different approach. Instead confronting you with an air traffic control system for your to-do list, Short List is more like a pocket calculator. It's built from the ground up to quickly access the most important lists in your life with simplicity and elegance.

True to its name, Short List is designed solely for lists that fit on a single screen. Simply swipe left and right between different lists.

No toolbars to figure out. No hierarchies to navigate. What you see is what you get.


Have a short list of important things but don't know where to start?

Unlike many task managers, Short List is obsessed with helping you rank and order the things in your lists. In fact, Short List automatically keeps score and tracks how every item in a list compares against every other item.

The upper-left button brings up sort controls that let you manually move an item to any position. Short List also works as an active guide to automatically prioritize the remainder of your list for you.

Choose the most important item at the end of each arrow by tapping a ring and you're done! Your list ends up thoroughly sorted with the most important items ranked at the top.

Short List remembers all your comparisons too, which makes it easy to quickly sort new items into a list at any time.

● USE ●

As an example, create a "Favorite Restaurants" list. Go through a guided sort of the list together with your dinner date and watch the best restaurant work its way to the top.

Don't discard this list when you're done. Keep it around. You can always shake the list to shuffle and sort it over again. Next time you might come up with something different.

This process can be used for anything. Movies you want to see. Things you need to do today. Prioritizing your budget. Guessing which top team will win the playoffs. Whatever you can think of.

● COST ●

Download Short List for free! Create and use up to three lists for as long as you like.

Short List also offers upgrades for up to ten and twenty lists. Tap the info button for more details.

What's on your short list?

5/5 stars

Inventive way of organizing lists!

This application is really cool. Most iPhone list applications are clumsy and difficult to navigate. Short List is an elegant task manager that actually helps you prioritize your tasks! The "lasso" prioritization function is what really makes this a unique tool. Will use this daily. Very nice.

5/5 stars

Quick and easy task organizer

Probably what I like most is the simplicity of this task organizer (as advertised). The interface flows well. I can add a task list quickly and organize it just as fast. I like this app a lot!

4/5 stars

Love it

Just wish when you upgrade to more notes, the color choices would also increase, or that a color picker were available to design your own note colors.
