When we asked for your comments on ListPro for iPhone, I was thrilled with the response we received. You guys gave us a wealth of fantastic ideas and insight. Based on those comments, our own experience in the iPhone market, and quite a bit of heavy thought, we have a tentative plan. Note that this is in no way a guarantee of what we will do, but rather an estimate of what we hope to accomplish.
So if you want the inside scoop on ListPro for iPhone, read on after the jump!
My plan right now is to have us develop something I’m tentatively calling the ListPro Reader. At the very least, the ListPro Reader will let you publish your favorite ListPro lists to your iPhone and read them there. Other features we MIGHT include in the first release include:
- Ability to check checkboxes
These additional functions all depend on how much time it takes to make them happen. I also have a few more tricks up my sleeve but at this point I need to keep those a little closer to the vest.
Sorry, folks. I just can’t say exactly when it will be out. All I can tell you is that we ARE working on it, and the second it is available you’ll hear it from me in a BIG way.
Should You Wait For It?
You know, I can’t give you advice on this one. I just don’t have an exact release date. I won’t take it personally if you feel that you need to find an interim solution. We fully understand that people need a solution to their listmaking needs on iPhone.
Full-Featured ListPro for iPhone
In all honesty, this will depend a LOT on how well folks like the reader and how much interest it generates. As a HARDCORE ListPro users and an iPhone user as well, I REALLY REALLY REALLY want full featured ListPro on my iPhone. Unfortunately, in the end I have to make the best decision for the company. If it looks like the iPhone market isn’t going to embrace ListPro, we might not be ABLE to do more than the Reader.
If, on the other hand, people show a strong interest I’d like to look at a full featured ListPro for iPhone. Most likely, we’d do a slightly advanced version of the Reader for pay, and then slowly add new features over time.
ListPro for Mac
We don’t have specific plans for this right now, but if the Reader gets popular I could definitely see a Mac version in the future.
