Hello folks,

A Checkvist developer is here. I’d like to share some changes which were made in our tool in recent months. Maybe some of you may consider checking it out again and adding it to your toolbox.

- export to rich text format with a possibility to generate headers from the outline
- added support for repeating due tasks which never become overdue
- added keyboard-navigatable breadcrumbs in the hoist mode
- re-design of the top part of the screen - make it more concise and less ugly
- distraction-free zen mode with `om` keyboard shortcut
- more priority colors + color cusomisation
- more flexible sharing, both public and private, even with password protection

Thanks for your attention, I’m here to answer your questions :)

Welcome, and thanks for the news!

All of this is most welcome. I find myself playing with Checkvist from time to time. Some thoughts:

- the web features are really good. All of the commands I need and want are there. It’s logical and efficient. I should say that my interest in Checkvist is for writing, usually articles, sometimes books. This is the best, or one of the top two, outliner/s I’ve seen for that purpose.
- the software got noticeably slow with anything much beyond a 5,000 word article. That surprised me.

Other things holding me back from paying:

- I’m paring down expenditures for software I don’t use.
- in addition to a web app, I want a mobile app (Android). I guess over a year ago, I looked at the product. The UI feel was so different I found it offputting.

But you folks do more things right than not and I’ll keep checking in.

I was an early user but abandoned it when it became clear that there were no plans to develop a mobile app for iOS. Has that changed?

I agree with jaslar that the software becomes sluggish when dealing with large amounts of text, such as chapters in a book. Maybe Checkvist isn’t meant for writers? I’d be interested to know if recent updates have made it more usable for long-form fiction and non-fiction, because it really is a great outliner.

  Could you possibly share with me a copy of the list where you notice the performance problems and let me know which operations are particularly slow? Also, which browser do you use?

  Personally, I have lists with a couple of thousands of items max and they work OK for me. But probably your patterns of work differ.

  Thanks, understood. The current mobile app at https://m.checkvist.com has quite a different UI. It has been re-written from scratch because it was hard to support offline mode in the current web app (and the mobile app works offline).

  Thanks again,
