The humble checklist, a simple tool that helps make your day that little bit more awesome.

A checklist is essentially a repeatable to-do list. But what might you use one for?

1. To instruct others.

"We use Forgett at BuyMyWardrobe to create handy checklist-based guides for our users. Rather than having to explain how to do something each time - like applying to be a seller or adding a new product - our support team now just send users to a simple checklist guide."

Kal Di Paola - Founder and CEO of BuyMyWardrobe.

2. To remind yourself.

"I originally built the first version of Forgett because as a freelance designer and developer I constantly found myself doing similar things - like adding authorisation, SSL or image uploads to a web app. I now use checklists with code samples to do the exact same tasks in half the time."

Tim Aikin - Designer, developer and founder of Forgett.

Create checklists

Create useful checklists in minutes.

Checklists are a great way to improve productivity, so we've made creating, editing and actioning them quick and simple. Things like markdown support, one-click edit/action mode change, and drag-and-drop make them wonderfully easy to create and use.

Markdown and syntax highlighting

Markdown and syntax highlighting.

Some checklists will be simple, others complicated. To make the complex ones easier to format we've added **Markdown** support and smart <code>syntax</code> highlighting.

Add images and animated gifs

Animated gifs, of course.

A picture says a thousands words, and an animated gif even more! That's why we added the ability to add an image to each item on your checklist - really great for explaining steps in a process visually.

Edit mode and action mode

Edit mode, action mode.

Having created and actioned hundreds of checklists we know that you'll have a slightly different mindset when editing versus actioning a checklist - so we created a custom interface for each.

Private checklists

Need shared or private checklists? No problem.

We'd love you to share all your checklists with the world, but we really care about privacy so all are private by default. It's also super easy to share checklists with just a handful of people, simply by adding their account email to a list. Wonderfully quick and simple.

Mobile checklists

Mobile checklists.

Take your checklists with you, simply access from your mobile browser - it works just as well as on desktop in both edit and action modes. Never be without your checklists again!

We're very sorry, but as Microsoft has discontinued support for Windows XP we no longer support older versions of Internet Explorer. Perhaps give Firefox a try, or even an iPad or iPhone - Forgett works really great on mobile devices!
