According to Google, the biggest competitor to Gmail Tasks is good old-fashioned pen and paper. I still use written lists when planning projects and to make notes to myself. Unfortunately, my handwriting is appalling, which renders my lists useless for other people and, sometimes, even myself! Hence, I was really pleased to come across a little web app called Printable Checklist, which offers a dead simple way of making checklists that you can print out (hat tip to Unclutterer, which originally found it on Lifehacker).
Browse to the Printable Checklist site and you’re presented with a title and your first list item, ready to edit:
Click on the title to edit it, click on a list item to edit it, add more items using the “Add item” button. That’s all there is to it.
When you’re finished with your list you can print it out. Ingenious and simple!
