Conflict of interest disclosure:Karelia provided a free copy of The Hit List to me for the purposes of the review.
I’m a list guy, meaning if I don’t have a list when i go to a store, or start a project, something usually gets left out. Know that feeling? So when I saw this new product – The Hit List, I thought sure, let’s try it out, see if it can help me get more done, with less aggravation. Karelia Software is well known for high quality products, so again, I thought the learning curve would be easier. I have the Mac version, the iPhone version, that also now includes AppleWatch App with auto syncing. It’s a product that was fully redone I’ve read, graphics to functionality. All the better. As I said, I’ve never used it before, so I will be a good guinea pig.
I started out with the iPhone version of the App, it’s an iOS 8 version -(System Requirements: iOS 8.1 or higher for iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, and the fifth generation iPod Touch), updated for iPhone 6. Easy to navigate to create lists, add sub topics and start/due dates, if you want a monthly repeat or other, ok too, only thing I didn’t find were adding times of the day. I added colors for priority, and I liked being able to organize by topics too, so when I went to a store I could easily find all the things at that store, once done, I could check completed, and it stores that too. So far, so good. I felt more organized than in a long time, and it wasn’t a big deal to do it once I got with the steps to do it. Once you have your lists set, you can easily sync them to the Mac and AppleWatch apps too, and it’s free as a feature. Very nice. Worked great. Free demo too, so give it a try and be organized!
