Checklist – Create Quick Offline To Do List On The iPhone

With native iPhone apps over shadowing Safari web apps since the App Store first launched, web apps had since received lesser attention. Before you decide that native iPhone apps are the way to go, think about how web apps are spared from going through dreaded App Store approval procedure before you can get your app updated with new features and bug fixes.

Since Safari 4.0 for the iPhone was introduced, Mobile Safari supports HTML5 client side storage specification. Meaning web apps can store data on the client side (on your iPhone) and also store files like CSS, javascript, images into the iPhone’s cache.

Checklist

Checklist is a classic example of an offline web application that lets you get things out of your head by creating a quick to do list.

If you’re looking for an extremely simple to do list app, look no further.

Probable Uses

How I see Checklist can be really useful is when you’re packing your stuff to go on a holiday trip. I can see myself entering stuff like, slippers, cap, 5 t-shirts, chargers, toothbrush, shaver etc, you get the idea.

Because Checklist loads everything offline, you can use it at lightning speed. Pack one thing, launch, check it off, until everything is packed for your trip.

You can also use it for groceries. Doing groceries tonight? Launch the app, quickly enter the list of items to buy. Check them off at the super market, no need to wait for the internet to slow you down.
