How I planned my vacation using ListBook
ListBook is a little app crafted by noidentity, a small development studio in Switzerland, these guys are well known for developing one of the best personal finance apps: Moneybook. Their newest creation does one thing and it does it really well: lists. I know there are tons of lists apps in the AppStore but this is the one I like the most because it has just the right features and an attention to detail with a clean look that I just love.
There’s no much to say about how it works, after all it just makes lists and in a very simple way, what’s interesting is all the uses you can give to an app like this. See, when talking about lists apps most people just thinks about to kinds, to do and shopping lists. I used this app to plan my next weekend vacation and I’ll share how I did it with you.
I love vacationing, every one does, but I mean I really love it, I live for it and usually there’s two kinds of vacations I take, realax ones (on the beach) and what Nydia and I call “cultural” ones. This last kind consist not in resting but rather visiting interesting cities with lots of history, museums, parks and such. I’m a very structured person, I like to organice everything for my vacation especially the “cultural” ones because those involve an itinerary, so normally I organice my vacations with some lists:
- Pack list
- To do before trip list
- Buy before trip list
- Places to visit list
- Of course, Dropbox back up and sync
- The ability to share list with other devices
- Send lists by mail
- Export lists as plain text to iTunes or Dropbox (and very important, the ability to select the Dropbox folder so I can read my lists using the nvALT, Elements, Dropbox set up I have)
- Would love to have an iPad companion with Dropbox or WiFi sync between the two apps
