One Place to Organize Your Downtime
Sofa is an iOS app that helps you organize your downtime by keeping lists of apps, books, board games, movies, tv shows, podcasts, music albums, and video games.
“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.
Capture In Seconds
You can come across an interesting book or movie at random times. Sofa is designed for these moments.
- Easy Search
- Throw it on The Pile
- Add almost anything
Keep Things Tidy
Keeping things tidy shouldn’t ever feel like a chore. Sofa provides many ways to organize your downtime.
- Lists & Groups
- Log your activity
- Activity stats & filters
Your Own Personal Guide
It can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch, play, and read. Sofa can be your own personal guide for deciding how to spend your downtime.
- Just enough detail
- Prioritize with The Shelf
- Remind yourself with Sticky Notes
More Organized Than A 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.
Unlimited Lists & Groups Add unlimited lists and groups for categorizing all your stuff.
Throw it on The Pile Do you know that place in your home where you put things you’re not ready to deal with yet? That’s “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.
Prioritize with The Shelf Similar to pinning, prioritize items in your lists and see them aggregated together. This is great for figuring out what you want to watch, read, play, etc.
Just Enough Detail Get the synopsis of a book or release date for a movie—just enough detail, nothing more. Upgrade to Super Sofa for helpful detail links.
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, Easy to 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.
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.
Super Sofa is an optional subscription for a “pro” version of Sofa. The core experience will remain completely free.
