Task Managers: Nested Lists

iOS & iPadOS

Does anyone know of an accessible app that can manage tasks that can put lists inside other lists? I have a program that I like for the computer that can organize trees of information with each branch of the tree capable of housing a note. This program also has a tabbed interface, where whole trees can be segregated from one another. I was hoping to find something similar for iPhone.

Yes, there was a program called ListMan on the PC that could do that, and I had one for the pac mate as well, so if anyone knows of such an app I'd also be grateful.

If you don't mind having just a list of lists, Paperless is a good option. It's quite accessible and it's an app I personally use. While you can't make a tree structure in Paperless, it is easy to move and copy items between lists. Of the 2 apps I know of, Paperless is the only one I feel comfortable recommending.

The other app I know of is Lumen Trails. The biggest problem with this app is that it tries to be all things to all people, which results in an interface cluttered with junk if all you want to do is create a note tree. Another thing is that Lumen Trails is sold as a few different apps, which are actually all the same app with the same capabilities just preloaded with different templates. It's not an app I use, and I would never feel comfortable recommending it. I only mention it here because it's the only app I know of that supports more than the list of lists that Paperless provides.

I'll be interested to know if anyone knows of a better option than Paperless or Lumen Trails.

I use Lumin Trails, and it's a great app, but not for list treas I think. I'll have to try making one and see what happens but I really like it.
