Workflowy: Your Life, but as a List

RockMelt: The New Browser for Social Media Lovers

Fans of the Getting Things Done (GTD) techniques recognize the power that lists have over the chaos and disorganised approach to modern living. So it should come as no surprise that there are many tools available for GTD devotees to do this. And a lot of them seem to reside firmly in the cloud with the newest addition being Workflowy. Workflowy, backed by the Y Combinator  start-up fund, aims to become your external brain and tries to do this as easily as possible thanks to the clean and slick interface created by Jesse Patel and Mike Turtzin.

According to Workflowy, almost everything you create on Google Docs is a list. Quite a bold statement but one that many can understand. To that end, Workflowy starts with a blank slate which can be intimidating. The makers suggest starting with separate lists for goals, projects, and chores instead of the usual single to do list. The fun really begins with the ability to create sub categories, complete tasks and to hide tasks. It’s all very easy to use and fast – as quickly as you can brain storm, Workflowy can capture and organize.

Workflowy is quite late-to-market with organization sites such as Evernote already commanding large numbers of loyal followers. However, Workflowy is simple and focuses on one purpose:  list making. Initially, the site will try to gather followers thanks to its free beta and eventually will transition to the freemium model in an effort to generate income. May more improvements and features are on the way and, even though it can’t complete tasks on your behalf, it’s pretty good at helping you get organized.
