online checklist creatorYes I know that title is a little long winded but this is such a simple service and it is truly awesome. I personally use my Windows Mobile Touch Pro for all my list making and checking.


I have shown you how to set up two Windows Mobile phones to sync task lists. But what do you do when you need to print a quick check list? I mean from any web connected machine that can print? Do you open up Word or Excel and start formatting?

That was exactly what “AskTheAdmin” used to do until I found a little known site called the Printable Checklist and it is so simple I might have a hard time writing a whole article about it”¦ Nah!

Enter, a dead-simple to use and extremely useful online checklist creator.

I made my way over to the site and then without any downloading or logging in I was able to create a checklist, modify a list and of course print a list.


By clicking the “Add item” button you will get another line that says “Click to edit”.

You simply click on the line to get a text box to enter text. Pretty easy and straight forward eh?

So let’s enter a sample list. I click on the green plus sign next to “add item” four times and create my rows. Then I enter my text line by line. I wind up with this little list that I can then tape to my monitor or forehead”¦

Then of course you can print out your list using your browser’s print command. Then you can use one of those things, I think they call them, pens (?) to check off those boxes!

All kidding aside this is a very handy web application. I for one find it a lot easier to follow a printed list that I can cross out and crumple up than using my phone – especially in the supermarket. Did I mention that I hate the supermarket?

In conclusion – I love Printable Checklist and I hate the Supermarket. And I’m out :)

How do you keep up with your lists? Any other online checklist tool we don’t know about? Let us know in the comments!

    Your articles are fine. Articles on Everything, Executor, LastPass, Tabmarks are very useful.

      Looking through the calls I doubt it but you never know and there is no documentation on it. It is one of those things you just have to be happy works :)

      I downloaded a local copy in case it goes off line!

        Whenever I see "scriptaculous" I think of Cake, since I see it often used in Cake apps, but I suppose it is used in many things! :)
