List Engine is a list creation and item library app for creating, managing and re-using lists quickly and efficiently. There are multiple ways to use and organize lists depending on user preference which provides flexibility and power right from your iPhone. A robust item library makes it easy to create lists quickly without having to re-enter information each time a new lists is created.
TIME FOR AN UPGRADE
CU WAS USING AN OUTDATED LMS THAT NO LONGER MET THEIR NEEDS
In partnership with Colorado University CU we designed a brand new LMS from the ground up. This included custom designs, course workflows, and a tier based membership for different users to have access to custom reporting we developed. The other major integration point was creating the database schema in a way that we could migrate all course content and user completion data in a simple way.
MAKING A LIST
List Engine was born out of the desire to create a list management app that had more options for re-use as well as the ability to manage lists flexibly. So many of the list creation and management apps out there are more of a one time use experience. We wanted to create something different and focus on providing users with the ability to not only re-use entire lists, but also create a robust item library from which they could quickly and efficiently spin up new lists while sitting at the kitchen table or on the fly while out and about.
DON’T DO IT TWICE
When creating lists, users start in the same place they did last week or the week before and tweak the list. We created List Engine lists to be flexible by allowing for quick re-use and adjustment rather than requiring duplicate entry. As users create more and more lists and gather and input item details, the List Engine item library grows and provides ways to re-use already added items. Basic item information is utilized to understand potential budgets for a list.
WHAT THE CLIENT HAD TO SAY
“ The app is definitely functional for what I need. I'm using it to categorize my home improvement projects. I like that you can assign tags to your items and a budget! I had been searching for a good list app for some time and this is honestly the best one. I did pay to upgrade to the full version because it was worth it. Suggestions: allow an 'enter' to the next line in the notes section, allow you to share your list with others, a way to check off something as 'completed', add 'date to complete' and/or 'date of start' with an option to connect to your calendar, add pictures to your lists, and an aesthetics update to coincide with new operating system. Thanks! Love the app so far! ”
DON’T FORGET ANYTHING
This iOS App Development project was all about maximizing efficiency and saving time with a very common and basic need: making and tracking lists. We created List Engine’s tagging, store, and category options to increase productivity every time a user steps into a store. Time is valuable and multiple trips can be frustrating. Certain stores can be daunting, and remembering every item for every little project can be a tall order, especially those random items that don’t always land on a written list. By simply attaching a store to a list, users can filter items by that location and be sure that all items are purchased. When out and about users can also reference lists by stores they are close to ensure they are maximizing time running errands.
From branding to workflow we designed List Engine to be simple but still have features that benefit both casual and power users.
