You may have noticed the silence on this blog for the past few months. It’s not because there’s nothing left to say, I assure you. I’ve just been immersed. Doing what? Making checkitboard.com, that’s what.
Ah, another website. Well not quite. It’s a web app and a versatile one at that. You see, I had a problem. I needed to communicate with a small team and some clients. I needed to build an online list of to-do items and assign them to different people. It needed to be visible and changeable by the parties involved. And I couldn’t find an online tool that did all this and let me build it once and copy it to reuse it. So, I decided to build it myself. While I was at it, I thought of some other useful tools that let me enhance what you could use the tool for. I built in real-time collaboration, drawing, ability to make public and private boards, and picture posting, too. What I ended up with is really useful, versatile, and fun.
It still needs a little polish, but the functionality it supports is quite extensive. I’ll follow this post with some periodic examples of what you can use CheckItBoard for and why it’s so cool. Give it a try (it’s free!) and let me know what you think.
