What is Qlistic?
Qlistic is the simplest way to keep shareable lists, such as shopping
lists, to-do lists, etc. You don't
sign-up. You don't sign-in to anything. You don't need to join any
social network or install anything. Your lists live in The
Cloud, and you can get to them on any smartphone, tablet, or
computer--all you need is a modern browser like Chrome or Firefox.
How much does it cost?
Nada. Qlistic is FREE!
How do I share a list with someone?
You simply send them the link to the list, so you could use
email, text, carrier pigeon, etc. "Anyone with the link" can see
and use a particular list.
You can email a link when you create a list, or click on the
little envelope button when you're looking at a list. Even if you
don't intend to share a list, it's probably a good idea to email
yourself a link to it so you can easily pull up the list on
multiple devices. And we promise, promise, promise your email
address won't be shared, sold, or even stored in any way, shape, or
But if it's on the web, what happens when I'm offline?
You're good! Through the wonders of HTML5, you can still see
and edit your lists even if you don't have Internet access. The
easiest way to get to your lists is to bookmark at least one of
them, pull it up even if you're offline, and voila, there's your
list! While you're offline, you won't be able to sync your changes
with The Cloud. But the next time you pull up the list while you're
online, your list and The Cloud will sync up.
Once you've opened a list on a given browser, it'll be there when
you need it.
Most modern browsers are good to go by default, but for
cookies, and store data for offline usage. Some browsers may ask
your permission for Qlistic to do those things.
I still don't get it.
Ok. Say you and your S.O. want to share a single, long-lived
grocery list or shopping list. You've got an Android® phone, your S.O. still has
an iPhone®, you spend all day on a Windows® computer, and
there's always a tablet or two around. With Qlistic, you can see
and edit the same list on all of those devices, online or offline,
without signing-up, signing-in, or installing anything.
Or maybe the party is tomorrow night, and you need to jot
down a to-do list. Start a list and keep it to yourself. And if
you're running low on time, shoot the link over to your friends and
you can all work from the same list to track what still needs to be done.
Keep a list for the hardware store. One for the honey-do
list. One for people you've put on notice.
Can it also solve world hunger?
Sadly, no. There are some things it's probably not great for.
We want to make it awesome for you, but with Qlistic, as in life,
there are no guarantees. Or as the lawyers like to say, Qlistic
comes with no "warranty of merchantability" or "fitness to be used
for any particular purpose". You'll just have to accept it "as-is".
And so that means you
probably won't want to use it for things like your last will and
testament, or other sensitive information. Capisci? By using
Qlistic, you agree to our Terms and Conditions,
Any other fine print?
Sorta. Qlistic is supposed to be simple, following the 'do
one thing and do it well' doctrine. So it won't take pictures or
meld with your Facebook profile or coordinate calendars. And though
it's free for you to use it, it's decidedly not free to keep
it going, so you can only keep 10 lists at a time, and lists that
haven't been used for 6 months may be deleted from the servers.
Not so bad, right? So...
