Your Downtime

“Never feels
like a chore”

Most of the apps we use today are designed for work. Sofa is one of the few productivity apps intentionally intended for play.

More Organized Than
Your Notes App

Keeping lists in a notes app can become an incoherent mess. Sofa’s organization brings sanity and flexibility to how you spend your downtime.


Lists & Groups

Add unlimited lists and groups for categorizing all your stuff.

Throw it

on The Pile

A quick place to save stuff you’re not ready to organize.

Remind Yourself

with a Sticky

Add sticky notes to items in your lists. This is great for remembering who recommended something or for logging your thoughts.

Keep a Log

of your Activity

A historical view of the things you’ve watched, read and played. Upgrade to Super Sofa for the ability to filter and see stats.


with The Shelf

Similar to pinning, prioritize items in your lists and see them aggregated together.

Just Enough


Get the synopsis of a book or release date for a movie—just enough detail, nothing more.

Make it Yours

Customizing stuff is fun, and choosing themes is no different. There are 100+ themes and counting. Choose different themes for light or dark mode, and set a custom app icon.

An App
You Can Trust

Your data is completely private and secure. We intentionally can’t see the contents of your Groups, Lists, and Activity.

Easy to Start
…and Leave

Sofa’s not for everyone, and that’s ok. If things don’t work out, quickly export your data in multiple formats and move on.

Enjoy the full power of Sofa.

“This app is incredible. It’s beautiful, functional, and easy. This level of organization is what I’ve been needing for awhile! Now I can make sure to actually follow up on recommendations from friends 😊 and I won’t have to spend an hour finding something to watch. Please Shawn, make more organizational apps! You rock!”

“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.”

“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!”

Sofa Fan

“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.”

“Sofa helped me better distribute the time I spend on the couch, and makes sure I don’t forget to watch that show my friend keeps bugging me about.”

Jordan McMahon

“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.”

“Very nice App. It’s VoiceOver compatible! So blind folks can also easily use this iOS App. Well done.”


“I’ve been using an Airtable database for this, but I’ve been slowly moving everything to Sofa. What I like about Sofa is that it automatically pulls the meta data of the content.”

Christopher Lawley
The Untitled Site

“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.”

Matt Smith
Sofa Customer

“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!”

“Use it all the time. Made keeping up with all the media I wanna consume so much easier!”

David Dylan Thomas

“Sofa has long been a great way to organize everything from your games to your books…”

Oliver Haslam

“I love having the list of books I want to read so handy; sort of right in my pocket at all times! And so easy to list something I read about so I won’t forget. Much better than trying to carry a paper list or scraps of paper. During this pandemic, I have been able to purchase books on-line, without missing any or, worse, buying twice.”
