Ta-da Lists: Simply Great

For whatever reason it’s taken me a very long time to finally go check out 37signals’ kind of new project, Ta-da List. Essentially it’s just a site that lets you create easy to manage to-do lists that are visually pleasing and allow you to check things off and keep track of what’s been completed. I’ve been using them for a couple days now to keep track of work to do as well as movies I want to watch and I’m just in love with it. It’s all incredibly simple, basically text and a check box. But why do you need more for a to-do lists. In fact, the tagline at the top of the page reads:

Make lists and get stuff done. Tada!

Simple, sharable to-do lists. It’s just what you need and nothing you don’t.

Well put.

Oh, and while you’re at it, check out their excellent blog Signal vs. Noise.
