Customer Reviews

  • Great App

    by cbick22

    So easy to use. Love just being able to jot a quick list down. They have really worked on this app - the improvements that have been made since the app was first available are wonderful. Would recommend. Thanks!

  • Can't live without it


    Can't live without it ... Lists. Quick lists. Still my most useful app.

  • UYH Gold

    by Bamasun

    I love this app!! I never make lists with paper & pen anymore - which I usually lost or forgot to bring with me anyway.

  • Password

    by amijoyshu

    I love using this app for PRIVATE things. But I CAN'T. because you do not offer a password or some sort of security code to open the app. This would be an EXCELLENT option to add! PLEASE DO IT!

  • Frustrated

    by Debbie the Diva

    This is a good app and I use it regularly; however, almost every time I do there are buttons which will not respond to my touch. I have used the buttons just the moment before, but now they will not work. What's up with this? Very disappointed at its inconsistency!!!

  • Great app-display border distracting

    by CC308

    Quick, easy to use. Perfect for organizing my life. It is one of the most used apps on my phone.

  • One of my favorite apps.

    by Lazertag22

    I Have downloaded a lot of "to do" apps, but this is my favorite because it is colorful, fun, and SO much faster to enter lists than typing with the key pad.

  • Easy

    by JagmanFL

    Easy to use. Quick way to write a note

  • Awesome app

    by Aboffoli

    Works great!

  • Love this app!

    by Juslookin

    I've been using this app for a few years now and I've never had a problem with it. I use it for grocery lists, Christmas lists, to do lists, etc. I like how you can customize it to your own needs, plus I can email a list of things to my husband to pick up on the way home. I would highly recommend this app!

  • Nice App

    by Tipp2010

    Easy to use and set-up

  • Awesome

    by Magoo_BR

    Very good! I love it!

  • Most used app!

    by Mamaw57

    My go to list maker!!

  • Great application

    by Advantus

    Good for work and home. Simple to use and email to others. Recommend to anyone that does not want to carry a stylis. One helpful addition would be to allow typing as well as handwriting.


    by Pray team

    I really like this app! I am a list person and with this app I always have what I need with me and at my finger tips.

  • List

    by buckaress

    I like to organize my list

  • Awesome handwriting notes app!!

    by Gigi+panda=bff

    I use this app all the time. Love the finger writing abilty never worry about my big fingers hitting wrong keys and having to backspace constantly! Like multiple tab categories to put lists under. makes a quick grocery list and quickly delete the item once its in my grocery cart. Christmas wish list are easy to jot and save for later. Songs i hear and later want to download. Things to do and on and on.

  • Daily User

    by Ittyfat

    I use it all the time. From grocery list to ideas I don't want to slip away. I always know where those miscellaneous notes are. It just works.

  • Great ap!!

    by Ky Noni

    I enjoy having this ap so I do not have to worry about remembering a paper list. It is always with me! And no pen or pencil to deal with either! Love it!!

  • Fun for lists

    by Necsf

    Can't imagine it for email, but lovely for tasks, both visually and because of nested or sub task features. Very easy on older eyes as font size is determined by your finger.

  • Fix It!

    by Actorryan

    I used this every day and now it does not work. Lists are overlapped, some change colors, it's a mess. It has been over a month. I would like it fixed or my money back.

  • UYH

    by Clowderkat

    Absolutely fave app!!! Useful, easy, and well worth having! Update: have used this app for years and loved it, despite its inability to completely sync lists between devices. Recently it seems to be even worse on that issue. Have checked my phone to make sure there is enough capacity, deleted and reloaded the app several times, all with no success. Hope the bugs can be worked out soon, as i have used this regularly, but am regretfully considering another app...

  • Cool and easy

    by glhm.martinez

    I love how it is simple and original. The best one I've got so far. It would be perfect with some adjustments like a quick access calendar and a way to preview how the handwriting is fitting into lines to avoid split words and unwanted extra lines. Other than that, two thumbs up! :)

  • Great ap

    by Robert Schwartz

    This ap is a wonder. It truly lets you write and recall lists, notes and any other writings you can do. I love it.

  • Wonderfully useful

    by Schzmantriac

    I love the structure, the options, the attention to evolving the app. The one thing that still keeps a fifth star from my review, is that it does compile all levels of a note for emailing. I would love to use it as an outline tool because it is so easy to draw small graphics in the notes. It just doesn't compile the whole outline well. Unless I'm missing something.

  • Great app

    by Littlebrownlight

    Love being able to take notes by writing with my finger on the phone screen. Email your notes then erase and go again.

  • Excellent!

    by Brindlehund

    Great program for making lists, taking notes. Use it often.

  • They keep making it better!

    by ganbill51

    For very quick and easy note taking without needing to search or type, this is absolutely the best!

  • Go Paperless

    by Hendomac

    Very nice app. Will help in my efforts to waste less paper taking notes.

  • Love this app

    by MomofthreeboysJPW

    I use this app every day. It has changed my life! No more forgetting my grocery list at home or leaving the store without everything I need. It's awesome!!

  • Great helper

    by Wanda Grecula

    I use this app all the time! Great helper

  • Uyh gold

    by luckyplucker

    Love this app. Will probably update so I can share between iPhone and ipad. Have had it for several years and never a problem. Thanks

  • Grocery List is now Easy Breezy!

    by iMac Daddy

    Add new items, swipe on items needed, swipe/check off items bought... Love the simplicity and inherent art in hand writing. A must have app!

  • Nice

    by Petersoxer

    Makes even my handwriting look good. Took a little while to get the hang of it but we'll worth it.

  • Use this app daily

    by Cobrahi

    I love this app. Use it for my shopping list. This alone has helped with impulse buying. If it's not on the list I don't buy it. Just delete as you put products in your grocery basket. When the list is empty you check out. Great money saver!!

  • Love it

    by sebulbadam

    Best handwriting ap. Great colors. Love the multilevel structure. Great for lists. Wish the orange font was more orange. Orange title item is great, but individual items are in a much whiter font. Frustrating.

  • Fun and useful

    by MA Morley

    I haven't quite mastered this yet, but I can already tell it's going to be one of my favorites.

  • Does it's job with style!

    by Waiting longtime

    I'm a list maker. Before finding this app, there were pieces of paper with reminders, thoughts, "to do's" and more spread throughout my life spaces. Now it's all on my phone, with me all the time and organized better than I could have imagined. Been using it for 6 mos. and I can't live without it! My only complaint is not being able to stop the sync when accidentally engaged, which hasn't happened since the update, but ?? It's frustrating because while syncing the app is busy and if I accidentally engaged the sync, I'm probably grocery shopping and need my list right away. Anyway it's minor. Bottom line: tried several, chose UYH, not going back :)

  • Use your handwriting

    by Pippenger

    I liked this app more before the update. Not as user friendly, and the "Help" is anything but helpful. However, I still use it often.

  • Great app, I'm addicted - but latest update is very buggy!!!

    by Texas Cupcake

    I love this app, and have used it for a long time. I have lots of lists I'm very dependent to use. However, It is buggy, and I can't get the apps support email address given to respond to me. The fonts keep "growing" to this random larger font that bleeds into the next line and I can't undo them or correct the really odd large font. It makes it unreadable, unusuable, and I am very frustrated!!!! The app HELP section is completely useless. ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM? I am ready to give up and find another list making app.

  • Great App!!

    by Dbandman

    I use this app daily. It's so easy use. No keyboard to mess with. In the time it's taken me to type this review I could have written this review several times.

  • Latest update corrupted my lists

    by E.Tchr.

    Some of my entries have disappeared. Some lists have merged onto one page. Some titles cannot be edited. At least two titles lead to the same list. I've deleted the app and will try to reinstall. I should NOT have had to do this. Terrible update!

  • UYH keeps me motivated.

    by Debbiedee623

    I love this ap. I use it for all my ToDo's, but I find it most useful at the gym. I have my list of exercises my trainer taught me on it. For each exercise I have a sub category with the instructions and spotting reminders. The ability to check and/or uncheck an exercise and move to the next one keeps me on my program. The ability to move and add items and reorganize my list allows me to fine tune my PT program. It also guilts me into not skipping the exercises I hate and it is very satisfying to check those "pain in the A's" off and move on. Thanks guys! for a very fun and useful ap.

  • My most used app!

    by siestaqh

    As a Boomer, I'm not a big thumb-typist. I love this app & use it all the time. No more forgetting the shopping list & always have a place to jot an important note.

  • Bring the previous version back.

    by Consumer 2

    After reading the update reviews, I did not want to upgrade. I was able to avoid upgrades for at least a year, but recently it upgraded when I was not paying attention. I do not like the current version. It is not as user friendly and I had to spend quite a bit of time trying to fix problems. Still want the original version back. Otherwise, I love this ap because I can keep track of my lists without carrying around scraps of paper. Just please fix it.

  • Handy

    by tjakamom

    I love the way this app syncs over several devices...crucial for keeping this family on track!

  • Great App

    by Dwright257

    Quick and easy to use with tons of cool features!

  • Very cool.

    by Monk61

    Easiest way to jot down someone's phone #. I've made tabs for emails to write, calls to make, words to look up (yes!), yard work to get done, etc.

  • Love the App, Hate the Update

    by SactoJD

    Horrible wonky update for one of my favorite apps. Lists have merged. Specifically the Palm Tree with one of my custom lists. App unusable in this format. Please fix quickly.

  • love it!

    by Jim in Dayton

    really handy!!
