‘Tis the season…for making lots of lists

The holidays are almost here! That means celebrating with friends and family, lots of yummy food, and sharing gifts. But we all know the holiday season also means stress – packed shopping malls, last-minute phone calls to figure out who’s getting Aunt Ida from the airport, repeat trips to the grocery store where you break the record for how many times one person can forget to buy the gravy … the list goes on.

And that’s why ListPro® is so very handy – you can make lists of absolutely anything you want to track for the holidays, put those lists on your device, and have them ready right when you need them. No more forgetting your husband’s sweater size, or which Lego set your nephew wanted, when you’re buying gifts. No more mishaps with planning the big family get-together. And when you’re buying the food – you’ll only have to make one trip, and you’ll definitely remember the gravy!

What else makes ListPro great for the holidays? Read on for more details and ideas… Continue reading

ListPro in the New York Times

We just released ListPro for iPhone last week. Not only has the response from customers been incredible, but this morning the New York Times mentioned ListPro for iPhone and Windows PC in an article from their Personal Tech section. The article said:

ListPro, a desktop software application that help users manage lists of all kinds, is now available as a free iPhone app. With it, you may create and manage lists, or choose from existing templates. For $20, you can download the desktop version (for Windows only) and sync your lists.

From a business perspective, even a quick mention like this is fantastic (Thanks, Bob Tedeschi!) From a personal perspective, however, seeing something you worked so hard to create get a mention in the New York Times is just incredibly cool!

You can read the entire article, including some great advice about managing business cards using your mobile device, at the New York Times website.

Talk Like a Pirate Day Lists!

As many of you scurvy dogs may know, I’m a huge fan of Talk Like a Pirate Day. If ever there was a holiday this world desperately needed, it was this one. Officially, Talk Like a Pirate Day is September 19th, but in preparation for the holiday and to celebrate the release of ListPro for iPhone, I’ve posted two pirate-themed lists on the List Exchange.

The first is the official ListPro Talk Like a Pirate Day list! With the blessings of the good folks in charge of Talk Like a Pirate Day, I’ve created a set of lists that include the origins of Talk Like a Pirate Day, a Pirate Dictionary, and “His and Hers” Pirate Pick-Up Lines! I can’t thank the folks over at Talk Like a Pirate Day enough for their support on this. Make sure to visit the official site to learn more about this awesome holiday!

The second is another Pirate Dictionary, this one compliments of the folks at the publishing company, Tide-Mark Press. It’s a great dictionary of pirate words and terms! Again, we really appreciate their support and encourage everyone to check out their site!

Windows PC and Windows Mobile users can download these special Talk Like A Pirate Day lists here (TalkLikeAPirateDay) and here (TideMarkPirateDictionary).

iPhone ListPro users can download the lists by tapping the List Exchange button at the Home View of ListPro on their device.

ListPro for iPhone is now available! And it’s free!

I’m extremely excited to announce that we just released ListPro for iPhone and iPod touch. It’s been a long time coming, but we’re very happy with the result and we think you will be too. Not only does it include many of the great features that have made ListPro so popular on other platforms, but the new iPhone version is free.

As you probably know, ListPro isn’t like other list-makers – ListPro is a complete list-making tool kit. It doesn’t limit you to one or two simple list types. With ListPro we give you the tools you need to contruct the perfect list for your needs. From a project tracking list to a mico-database for your book collection, you can do it all with ListPro.

At the same time, we understand that there are times when all you need is that simple list – and you need it now. To solve that problem, we’ve introduced List Protals. List Portals let you create some of the most commonly used list types, quickly, easily, and with a feature set specially geared toward those types of lists.

And of course, as we mentioned, ListPro for iPhone is free! All the power of ListPro at a price you, quite literally, can’t beat. This was made possible by Apple’s iAds. We know there is a right way and a wrong way to do ad supported software, but we think we did it the right way with ListPro. The only place you see the ad is on the home screen, and it doesn’t use up space needed for other things. No ads covering your list items or getting in the way when you’re editing. We think it’s a great way to handle ads, and we hope you’ll agree.

Finally, ListPro for iPhone and iPod touch offers complete, item-level synchronization with ListPro for Windows PC. It’s a great way to have your lists at your fingertips all the time.

ListPro for iPhone and iPod touch is available at the iTunes App Store for free and will run on all iOS 4 devices. ListPro for Windows PC is available from our online store for $19.95, but if you already own ListPro 5.0 you can download ListPro 5.1 (needed to sync with iPhone) for free. If you own an older version of ListPro (for any platform) you can upgrade to 5.1 here for just $10.00.

We hope you love ListPro as much as we do. We use it for everything here, and we’re extremely excited to see it hit the App Store. And if you have ideas, questions, or requests, just let us know! We have a list of features we hope to add in the future and would love to hear your thoughts!



Just released: a pair of updates

eWalletThis is just a quick post to let everyone know about two eWallet updates we’ve released this week. First up: eWallet for iPhone / iPad / iPod touch was approved by Apple yesterday. The update adds compatibility for iOS 4, so eWallet is now working great on the new OS! Updates for the new retinal display aren’t included yet, but we are working on that as well. eWallet Lite has also been released with iOS 4 compatibility.

And update #2: for all you Android users out there – we’ve released a new version of our eWallet Viewer, which adds search! This upgrade works on Android devices with OS 1.6 and above.

That’s all for this announcement! If you have questions or need help with either upgrade, remember you can always contact us.

A pair of updates: eWallet and eWallet Lite for iPad

eWallet for iPadIt’s only been just over a week since the iPad version of eWallet was approved by Apple, and I’ve already got an update – with some cool new features – to tell you about!

The big news is that we’ve added a method for backing up and restoring wallets from email in eWallet for iPad. Just select a wallet and click the Backup button to send a copy of your wallet to yourself via email. You can also move wallets into eWallet on the iPad by emailing them and opening the attached wallet on your iPad. eWallet will automatically save the wallet and open it on your device.

It’s a great way to move and restore wallets, especially if you aren’t using a desktop computer to synchronize with. And to those with iPhones, the announcements regarding iPhone OS 4.0 suggest that we’ll be able to add the same functionality to eWallet for the iPhone and iPod touch in the future.

We also improved the tap and hold functionality. A number of eWallet functions (renaming field labels, accessing the password generator, and changing field types) are accessed by tapping and holding on a field. With this release we’ve tweaked that function a bit to make it a little easier to use.

And we also released eWallet Lite for the iPad this week! eWallet Lite for iPad will let customers try out eWallet before they buy. Just like eWallet Lite for iPhone, it limits you to a single wallet and 10 cards, but it has all the other features you’ll find in the full version of eWallet.

Find out more on our site: eWallet for iPad and eWallet Lite.

“Oh! THAT statment!”

So in talking with folks about the upgrade to 7.0 issues, two commenters, Simon and Brett, were able to clearly point out something that I really do see as a significant problem. Our iPhone upgrade information read:

This upgrade requires the latest Windows desktop version to sync your data. If you bought the desktop version before August 30, 2009, you may need to pay for the upgrade. Visit our website for all the details.

Well that’s all well and good – but if you went to our site to make sure you had the right version, we tell you that the “latest Windows desktop version” is 6.1.4.

SO if you upgrade your iPhone, it should sync fine with 6.1.4 right? Wrong!

Rate It If You Hate It + In App Purchasing = Disaster?

stormThere is trouble brewing in the iTunes App Store, thanks to the combination of two App Store features. The first is the pre-existing Rate It If You Hate It ratings prompt system, where they prompt for ratings when you uninstall. The second is the recent change that allows free applications to use In App Purchasing to expand functionality, effectively creating a trial version system for the store.

I’m not a fan of how they’ve implemented either of these, but more importantly, when you combine these two it creates a perfect storm of trouble! Read on after the jump for the entire story about the problem Apple has created…
