Scribble with your finger to create simple shopping or to-do lists.
AndroidTapp.com Android App Review:
First and foremost, there’s no scribbling with my finger. Considering the description starts with “Scribble with your finger…” I was kinda looking forward to that. I’m a poker. I’m the person that walks through stores and I have to touch EVERYTHING and on my phone I’m the same way. I can’t imagine myself as a baby. My mother must have hated it. But I digress…
This is a great app for listing things, which is exactly what it is meant to do; make quick lists. There are five color coated categories you can put your lists into. You can have one for groceries, one personal to-do, one work to-do, etc. To cross something off the list it’s as easy at touching the item. At the end of the day you can touch “Clean Up” and it will remove all of your completed items so you know just what you need to do tomorrow.
If there was a way to sync this to Outlook’s to-do list, that would be a huge improvement. As of now, I need to manually put in and re-categorize my list. It would make it just a little quicker in my mind.
Pros & Cons:
- Simple to use
- Fast way to stay organized
- No need to carry around separate lists of what needs to get done
- No scribbling with your finger
- No syncing to Outlook or other task manager
- No notifications
There aren’t to many features, per se, for QuickList. It makes lists in up to 5 categories. This isn’t a note taking app by any means. Anything more than one or two words will go off the screen with no way to scroll to see the rest of it. This a pure to-do and shopping list app. But for that it’s perfect. IF…A) it synced with Outlook To-Do list or other organization program and B) it was actually able to be used to scribble something quickly.

If you’re like me you always remember something you were supposed to do or grab while you’re already on the road. This makes a great app for those of you who need to quickly write a note to remind yourself while on the go. I am not condoning driving and typing notes into your phone. Wait until you’re parked somewhere. Once you get to, lets say, the supermarket, you can set the list to just display your food shopping category for quick reference without the distraction of your other errands and tasks.
Ease of Use:
The functions are very self explanatory. When you click on Menu there are four choices; Add Items, Clean Up, View Labels, and Label Names. When you’re on the entry screen, the top bar displays the colors for your categories, and the bottom displays your options; List, Delete, Erase, and Done. That’s all there is to it. Very quick, very simple.
I love to stay organized. This will not only keep me organized but will also keep me from forgetting to get my tasks done. I use the To-Do list on my computer’s Outlook everyday. I would say I would use this everyday if it synchronized to my already perfected system I have set up in Outlook. Even I forget to list something, or something comes up while I’m out. That’s most likely when I will use this app, just to add on to what already had to do.
The interface for QuickList couldn’t be easier. Five categories. Four options. The keyboard you’re used to using. The name of the app describes it perfectly.
