Orderly handles to-do lists in a unique, gesture-oriented manner. The app contains a coded ranking system that automatically prioritizes your to-dos. The main screen of Orderly displays your to-do lists on beautifully designed sticky notes, with different rows based on priority (i.e. high, medium, low). Each row is its own functioning group of to-dos, so you are able to swipe to the left if you have more than 3 to-do stickies in that category.
Though the iOS App Market is saturated with to-do apps, including powerhouses like Evernote and OneNote, I came away impressed with Orderly. The user interface is breathtaking with perfectly colored sticky notes adhered to an iOS bookshelf background. The gesture controls are an excellent addition as they allow you to zoom, mark as complete, delete to-dos, and move/delete lists. I also appreciated that Orderly offers both a Home and Work view, given that it is likely one group of to-dos has nothing to do with other. The only thing missing here was some type of syncing capability, which is a major flaw given that you are relying on the app with very important lists. I did notice that the developer seems to be working on DropBox integration, so you know they are on top of the issue.
