Here's a small sample of the 1.6k+ ratings and reviews from the App Store

App Store Reviewer

“Just perfect for storing lists of what to read, watch or listen to in just about any format you can think of. Elegant in its simplicity, it replaces OneNote or Notes for this type of task: and is way better at it! Absolutely recommended.”

App Store Reviewer

“Truly the app I never knew I needed. Sometimes I put media in my backlog onto my daily to-do list just because it doesn’t really fit into any better place, so this is the perfect app to curate every piece of the pie I’ve dipped a finger in lol. It really is a great concept for those days when you know you have a nice chunk of free time, but aren’t sure what to do with it. Plus, having lists across multiple media genres in this one app consolidates many of the backlogs that I’m keeping in different places.”

App Store Reviewer

“If this app ever felt like a chore, it wouldn’t work. I wouldn’t use it. But it never feels like a chore, because it’s so fast, and does almost everything for you.”

App Store Reviewer

“I rarely ever write reviews (cuz I think it’s too much work 🙈) but I just can’t help myself but to write one for this app since it literally is my dream-list-app come true!!! Not exaggerating!”

App Store Reviewer

“I love being able to have ONE place all my stuff is tucked into. Go to a bookstore and find an awesome book? Throw it into Sofa! Pass by an ad for a new TV show at a stoplight? Throw it into Sofa!”

Sofa Customer

“Terrific app! Addresses a basic need via an awesomely simple UI! This’ll replace some poorly organized lists of mine in Evernote and the various places I keep lists of books, shows and movies (e.g. Amazon and the “watch next” lists in Netflix, IMDB, and Prime Video)! Kudos on a job well done.”
