The native Tasks application on BlackBerry is great for keeping organized, but if you want something with a little more "juice", Lister may be just the thing. The free app lets you create and manage multiple lists for anything from to-do's to Christmas Lists to reminders. You can easily create a list, add due dates and reminders, and navigate with multiple hotkeys. With Lister you can also share items with friends and family, even if they don't have the application. If they are a Lister user however, the app will open up the shared list automatically. Overall a very cool app that can help you keep track and stay organized - so far its made a great shopping list for me. You can grab Lister totally free from the CrackBerry App Store. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Create and Manage Multiple Lists with Lister for BlackBerry

22 Comments

I like it better than the native Tasks app when making a shopping list. Only big omission for me so far is Quick Launch support. Please add it!

But I prefer MaraTick... also free. List items can have categories and you can sort by item or category. Checked items are sent to the bottom of the list as you work through the list... lots of other great features.

One of the first apps I put on a BB.

Just wanted to thank you for the quick mention. We're working on an update to Lister which will add some new features and improve the interface quite a bit. One notable improvement will be the ability to add due dates/reminders to items emailed to the app.

As for QuickLaunch, we've been working with the developers and they assure us they'll release a fix to support Lister within a month. We'd like it to be sooner, but I'm sure they're hard at work with some more great features for QL so I won't complain ;-)

One feature that isn't highly publicized right now that we're hoping to keep improving in the future is the ability to add lists via email. All you need to do is email your list with each item on a new line to the email address stored on your Berry. Make the subject line "#Lister name-of-list" and you're good to go!

I added this to my wife's bold and mine. I created a list and selected share it. Entered her email address and sent it to her. on her bb, i see the email but now sure how to have it added to lister. also not sure how to get the updates via email to work. I also created one on her bb and sent it to me. one thing is that we both use multiple email accounts on our bb and the one we did for lister was not the default one. Could that be the problem? Is there a way to use any of the email accounts on the bb?

thx

I'll have to take a look at how email is handled on blackberry's with multiple email accounts. It's not an issue I'm faced with so it's possible I overlooked it. Have you tried emailing the lists to your default email address just to see?

Thanks!

I like the looks of this app. Especially the email functionality. Anyone else using it on a Storm? I'm having a few problems with the functionality, such as indenting and locating saved lists. Is compatibility mode the fix?

Look, I am not trying to be a naysayer, but doesn't the built-in Tasks app do most of this already?

Just this morning, I put shopping items into my Tasks app, with a category of "Shopping List", and then put the filter of "Shopping List" on.

We made Lister work a bit differently than the built-in task app, which I think made it a lot easier to use. For example, you can enter entire lists in Lister without ever entering the blackberry menu. Just hit enter to add the next item, space indents right, "del" indents left. You can also create sub-items for any regular list item. Finally, Lister allows you to automatically create lists and add items to existing lists via email.

It's really a matter of personal preference, but Lister is free so I recommend you check it out for yourself. You may be surprised! We're always looking for feedback on how we can improve Lister, so let us know if you find anything!

I like that I can make easy lists that i can access in a few clicks. The interface is simple but functional.
