Human beings have a very easy time organizing information into lists and connecting items between lists. Here are six examples of how TwoLister can be used.
Create a list with items like Today, Tomorrow, This Week, Urgent, Interesting. Connect these to the tasks and ideas spread out over several lists that are currently on your plate. When you tap Today you will see everything that needs to be done. As you complete items you can check them off. When you tap Interesting you will see items across several lists with optional detailed connection info of why you chose them to be interesting.
Think of five foods you like to eat… Next think of five restaurants you eat at… That would take you about a minute. Now with TwoLister you can connect the foods to the restaurants to match up which serves which. In seconds you can tap on a restaurant to see what foods it has, or tap on a food to see which restaurants serve it. If one restaurant makes really good pizza you can describe that connection to indicate it. Next you can create other lists for restaurant pricing or restaurant distance from home and connect those to the restaurants. In minutes you are creating an easy to use database of connected information that is accessible by single-tapping any item.
Create two lists side by side. One is your brainstorming list on a topic, say “Summer Activity Ideas”, with items like Hiking, Camping, Visiting Family. This list could get very long and tagging can really help to quickly access and come to conclusions about the information. The other list is called “Summer Activity Tags”. In this list you have tags like Best Ideas, Practical Ideas, Not This Summer, Chosen Ideas. You connect items in one list to the other. Then if you want to know what your best ideas are you just single-tap Best Ideas and you are done.
For those that like to create contexts for their tasks you can create a list with items like Errands, At Home, E-Mail, Phone. You then connect these contexts to whatever items fit them. When you are out on the town tap Errands to see what needs to be done.
TwoLister can display the same list on the left and on the right. The list can for example be the outline of a blog post or an essay. The connections between items can show how an introduction is connected to later paragraphs. They can show how arguments flow from one to the next. This functionality is not found in any word processing software. TwoLister makes it easier to organize and connect your thoughts.
Create two lists, one called “Food Choices” and the other called “Health Issues”. See how the two lists are connected. See how choices can influence your health. You can describe the connections to indicate exactly why some choices can lead to certain outcomes.
These are just six examples. There are many possibilities when it comes to structuring and connecting information. You will discover and imagine new uses as you use the app.
