Rich notes, multi-level sorting, micronizing, and clever clones highlight this powerful, flexible list manager

People are incredibly responsive to differences in visual representation. Color, shape and size are all amazingly effective ways to communicate. Listz capitalizes on this to help you interact with information and its relationships dynamically.

Robochan (http://www.robochan.com) today introduced Listz, the ground-breaking list manager for getting things done, in style. Listz's deceptively simple interface makes it easy for a casual user to assemble, explore, integrate, organize and search a broad spectrum of information types - text, images, urls, file links and QuickTime® movies. List connoisseurs appreciate the extraordinary level of customization and personalization combined with powerful features such as active status buttons for to-do lists, rich notes, iPod export, micronizing, smart alarms, multi-level sorting, additional printing options, clever clones and automatic 'due today' and 'due-tomorrow' tabs.

Listz lets users arrange information into lists, tabs and items. Every item can contain a description, rich notes, a smart alarm and active links to files and the web. Listz makes reorganizing easy; items can be dragged and dropped, sorted, cut, copied and pasted. Listz's innovative user interface layers data to provide fast access to an incredible amount of information in a very compact space. Variable display height, quick-links, and rollovers provide instant access to even more information.

Listz has the power and flexibility to take on a vast array of projects. Users can quickly create a grocery list, jot notes from a phone call, or brainstorm ideas for a novel, then drag and drop to effortlessly bring together text, images, even QuickTime movies from a variety of sources.

Listz's powerful multi-level sorting combined with the ability to view a tab in multiple windows at once, helps users to gain new perspectives on their lists. Listz provides many ways to group and distinguish items - priority, category, status and background color to name a few. Listz comes with many category icons and Robochan offers additional sets for free download. For users who enjoy creating their own categories, Robochan offers CatKit, a free application for building custom categories from photos and personal artwork.

"The style of a list or tab serves not only to differentiate it from others but functions as a deep mnemonic," said Robochon co-founder, Chris Livingston. "People are incredibly responsive to differences in visual representation. Color, shape and size are all amazingly effective ways to communicate. Listz capitalizes on this to help you interact with information and its relationships dynamically."

Listz provides a lush environment that encourages an individual's own approach to interacting with information. The program includes several professionally-designed styles from which to choose; additional styles will be available for free download. Every tab can be distinguished by a different background made from user-supplied images or selected from the many choices that come with the application. Combined with an assortment of title bars, tabs and resize widget choices, it's easy for users to create a unique visual identity for every list. In their micronized form, these personalized lists can be recognized on the desktop at a glance.

Listz provides advanced import, export, and update features to make transporting and exchanging lists seamless. Listz can even export lists to iPods for maximum portability.
