I'm looking for a good way to track my prayer list using a mobile device (that can also sync with other iOS/OSX devices).

Both Accordance and Logos have iOS apps I use a lot, but you can't edit an Accordance User Tool in iOS, and Logos doesn't have anything editable in iOS either, right?

OmniFocus would be great, but it doesn't automatically sync as seamlessly as something like Reminders does, and all my other to-do stuff is there, and I want a dedicated app for this.

I'm going to try using Things, which was just free on iPhone and iPad in the App Store recently. You can add a note to an item, tag it any number of ways, and do recurring tasks, and auto-sync to the cloud... seems to be all I need, except I don't think there's a good sharing extension or way to email to Things like you can with OF and Evernote.

So I am wondering--do any of you have a good (syncable) system for tracking prayer requests and thanksgivings? Would love to hear about it if so.

There's a cool new app for this called PrayerMate, but it didn't quite have as much customization as I wanted, though it's a great-looking app otherwise.

I was about to suggest this! I couldn't recommend PrayerMate more. It has helped me pray more than anything else (save the Holy Spirit!). In fact, I have wondered recently whether Logos/Faithful could benefit from taking a look at PrayerMate when making improvements to prayer lists.

Maybe I haven't used it enough, but is there a way to access the prayer items I enter as a series of check marks or items, rather than the guided swipes that PrayerMate does by default?

I'm sure that it's designed to work that way. It allows you to create lists and then selects items from that last for you to pray each day. You can select the number of items that will appear from your lists per session. 

The best thing is to play around with it, invest some time inputting items, and see if it works out for you.

Also, check out the website - http://www.geero.net/prayermate/ - which might help you a bit more.

Thanks, Richard. Yes, I've done at least that much. I think I'm still looking for something that feels more like a to-do list, sorted by categories, but I do appreciate the app all the same.

Sorry, I meant to say "I'm NOT sure...", in case I confused you. 

But, it may not be for everyone! We all need to find what helps us most.
