wow, that's a great idea...for me that's almost just as good as sync. i used to just screenshot my lists and text them to my wife. that is fine, but obviously it is not editable by her. with the new update, she would be able to save the list i send her and just restore it to her app. great idea!

I was actually just thinking about exporting and hadn't thought importing back but I love that idea of sending specific lists. I've added the ability to email a specific list in my current version. I created an HTML export that created a table of the list thinking the Gmail application could display an HTML table but as it turns out, it isn't compatible and will have to be displayed in text form. I'll try to update the app with that tonight and work on the other features soon.

What I think I can do from your import suggestion is to create a file extension specific to multilist that can be emailed then automatically opened and imported from multilist. I'll see if Android allows this but that would be great for your purpose!

I have released v2.0. There is now an email list option! Not quite what you were looking forward to yet but I'll get to working on the list export/import.

Hey everyone! I just wanted to update the status of the project. First of all, Multi List has now exceeded 500 downloads and is increasing in download count per day! I have not been able to work on the app for the last 2 weeks or so, but I will begin work again on it soon! I've started a great summer internship and the last few weeks have consisted of moving and beginning my first week of work. When I last worked on it, I had begun learning how to create widgets. This will be more of a side project, while I also release smaller feature updates.

Thank you to anyone that has downloaded the app just to check it out, as well as those that continue to use it on a daily basis. This has been a great project, and with a little more time, the download count could explode. The app will remain free and ad-free, but as a favor I would love if you could spread the word!

I know it is not necessarily "tablet friendly" in terms of layout and making best use of available space. However, it should work and just the same on your tablet as a phone does. I've had it tested on a couple and by now it should look almost identical on all devices. In the future I would like to use what is called "Activity Fragments" with the Android SDK to make the device look more appealing for a tablet. such as being able to see and choose from any main list while viewing a checklist. Currently, the home button must be pressed first.

Thanks for the testing and feedback!!

It works flawlessly on a 7" Display I have next to me at the moment. All the icons are still high resolution, there is no lag (this problem would be hardware sometimes if someone got it),and all the menus as well as text are automatically resized perfectly. Nice ICS themed UI, I like it.

As an idea for tablets, you could do a split screen sort of UI where you view multiple notes at once. This would mkae use of tablets 5 finger multitouch capabilities that no other app uses. Another thing you could do is make a coverflow of notes, option (you could expand on this and add grid, list, etc..).

Default Update Soon

I apologize for the lack of activity since the beginning of June. I have an internship for the summer until I start school, and because of it, I haven't focused on working on the app much.

I will be releasing an update soon with a couple of added features / better optimization:

Option to add a longer description field to list items in an edit mode.
Sanitize data entries better
Add a couple user requests.
Jelly bean theme soon?

App is about to hit 1000 downloads, so thank you to everyone that has supported my project!
