Nanolist

World's cleanest todo list

#4 Product of the DayApril 24, 2018

Nanolist is a todo list that does noting except todos. It doesn't track your productivity score, doesn't have a smart inbox or overly elaborate collaboration features.

No, it just gives you a clean and fast todo list.

You can also sync it between multiple devices and see your todos get updated in real time like magic ✨

And yet another list app. Let me say first that what I say here doesn't take away the hard work that goes into building apps or even checklist apps for that matter. I know it's not as simple as it looks. However, my pet peeve of 2018 is the app descriptions / slogans... "World's cleanest todo list" Well... Is it clean because it's black and white? Is it clean because it has basic design elements? Or because it has no features? I think I rather have a "dirty" full featured list app, than a "clean" basic check list. How does "clean" benefit me? Will it even be around in a year or so? Do we have any privacy? Do you know/track the items I enter in my list? I know nothing, and the website provides me no information. At the end of the day if this is a just "show off my skills app" that's great, but if you want it to be something more then there needs to be more information provided or at least a roadmap/plan for the near future. Do we need another "list" app? Sure there's always room for improvement. Will I use this one? No, it doesn't do anything that other list apps do. And there are several that claim to be "clean" and "simple".

@luca_spanjaard I figured people post their apps here looking for feedback instead of a pat on the back.

@tostartafire all your points are valid. The reason this exists is because some people (like yourself) would rather use a full featured app, but some other people (like me) don't always need it, but instead need a simple checklist. There's room for all of us :)

@tostartafire There are many ways of giving feedback. You don't have to be cruel about it.

@tostartafire I like the aesthetic. I don't care that it *claims* to be clean or simple, or "world's cleanest" - I like what it is and what it does, and it looks clean to me - and, perhaps, to the other hundreds of upvotes.

Hello, ProductHunt! This is my first time posting here and I couldn't be more excited! So, what the hell is Nanolist? Well, in every developer's life there's a moment when you have to build a todo list. Now, I know what you're thinking. Why does the world need another todo list? Well... For me personally, my todo app, namely Todoist is the number one productivity tool I use to organize myself. The problem I have with most todo lists however is that they all have tons of features related to everything except actual todos. I spent quite a while searching for a good todo app that will be just that, and I couldn't find a good option, so I decided to build it. So, what are the features? - Todo view (add/edit/delete) - Inline editing - Speed - Anonymous mode - Realtime sync - Mac app Thanks for your interest. I hope you find it useful :)

That is actually really lovely. The equivalent of a scrap of paper but on your screen.

@andreasduess Best. Comment. Ever.
There are a million to-do apps. I like this one. It's super clean and has sexy UX animations. Logging in is a breeze - there isn't even a *button*. Everything non-essential is stripped away.

Always like simple and clean product and nano list just did this. No more extra ugly functionalities, just beautiful essences.

Pros:

Very simple and clean.

Cons:

If one line is very long, I can just see first a few words and following contents are invisible.
