This past weekend, I wrapped up work on Listfoo 1.1 (which has been in work for a few weeks now) and released it.
You can login with demo/demo to just try it out - no registration required!

Listfoo is a site that lets you create simple, sharable lists for free. Basically I built it because I needed an online notepad that I could use to keep track of items. The first version, which launched early February, was an OK first release, but it was nowhere near where I wanted it, user-interface wise.

1.1 is exactly where I want the UI to be. It features extensive use of the scriptaculous javascript library and has a much cleaner feel to it. Even better, I've adopted a heavy favoritism towards inline editing - it's cut down the number of page views required to manage a list from 3 (edit list, edit items, view list/items) to one!

Although 1.1 was pretty much a UI overhaul, it was also coupled with significant backend changes. I've standardized all encoding to UTF-8, so international characters are supported on Listfoo.

A screenshot of the new listfoo is also the first of my projects to be tested extensively on FF 1.5 (both platforms), IE 7, Opera, *and* Safari! And it works equally well everywhere! This version just has a nice layer of polish the first one was severely lacking ... everything just works much better here.

It's simple and sweet. I'm really proud of it. So go check it out and give it a run ... and who knows, maybe you'll find it useful :)

I've used it to capture the Listfoo 1.2 and Listfoo 1.3 roadmap. I'm guessing 1.2 won't be ready until January, while 1.3 will be a March release (I'm trying for 3 month short, small cycles).

I've registered and I'm find it really useful for people like me who're glued to the PC all day. I'd like to make a suggestion though. If we could put like folders/categories to sort out multiple lists, I think it'd be great!

Thanks for making it really simple! :-D
