Checkser – the to-do list wiki that lets you find and build online checklists

Checkser is an intriguing new take on the whole online to-do list concept. It’s basically a super fast, no registration application that lets you create checklists and to-do lists. It’s still too early to say how useful this will be, but judging from a few of the offerings up there, it could turn out to be extremely cool for some types of needs.

The fact that it’s based around a wiki model means that anyone can edit or improve checklists, so for example you can upload a checklist on how to close your Facebook account, and others can come along and add new items or change the text to make things clearer, etc etc. The Features for a Checklist Site checklist is fun too.

This is one of those small applications that has the potential to become very useful if the right content – and enough of it – starts to appear. The main thing I think it lacks, though, is some way of outputting the lists to paper, either through some nice print templates or via a straight Print Version button (oh and a few hotkeys would be useful during the editing phase). But this is really just dibble quibble stuff. It’s a nice app, and I’ll be watching to see if and how it develops over time. Check out my list on ‘How to set up a blog’.

 Ever been in the position where you needed a quick checklist to make sure you were not missing any vital steps somewhere along the line? During a conversation with one of my mentors (Hans Janssen, CEO of Woodwing –, a few weeks ago, we had this same insight. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a website where people could share their collective knowledge in the form of checklists?
