Ita Design Writeup

The Mohawkians write up Ita 2.0 as a Case Study for List App Design:

With Ita, we’ve focused on the act of marking items complete (a single tap) and reordering items (a long press). This is because when you are using a list, these are the actions that you do most often.

The article looks at Reminders, Clear, and Wunderlist as well as Ita, and explains the Mohawks’s design decisions.
