Paperless Lite includes a button in the settings that will quickly and easily transfer all of your data to the full version. Simply tap the settings/gear icon on the main screen, then tap on "Transfer Lists To Paperless".
You can change the order of the lists on the main screen, or the order of items within a list by doing the following:
Paperless includes an automatic backup feature that saves all of your lists to a free Dropbox account. This feature also allows you to sync your lists between devices. To turn on automatic backup and syncing, go to the Settings screen within the app and tap "Automatic Backup and Syncing".
Also available from the Settings screen, is "Backup To Email". Use this feature to send a backup of all of your data to yourself via email. To restore lists from the backup, simply open the email using the "Mail" app on your iPhone, then tap on the "Restore All Lists" link. (or you can restore individual lists from the backup as well).

(For now, Crush Apps is just a 1 person company, and I have very limited resources. I could write a lengthy article about keeping the company small versus seeking venture capital to expand and hire employees to build things for Android and other platforms in an effort to try and make a bazillion dollars... but that would probably bore you to death. So, I'll just summarize it by saying that the most important thing to me right now is perfecting the product on iOS. Then Mac. Then perhaps someday bring it over to other platforms.)
