The app has various use cases and especially helps people collaborate for work on the go. To recall, the app was announced at Build 2020 last year, with and plans to include it in the Teams Web client and apps were announced soon after.
Microsoft Lists allows users to make lists from ready-made templates, from an Excel file, or from an existing list. The app for iOS also supports offline data consumption and has a dark mode.
