Creating and Modifying a List (iOS)

Create your own lists on the Skritter iOS app, adding words you come across while listening or reading, or directly from one of your own textbooks. Creating a new list is easy, and this guide will show you how!

You can also create lists on the website using a desktop computer, and then study them on the iOS app. This is generally recommended as it's much easier to type with a keyboard and use a mouse.
