If you feel like the flashiness, options and widgets of most web-based tools just distract from your list-making and outlining, WorkFlowy is for you. The very spartan but speedy interface is perfect for distraction-free listing and outlining.
WorkFlowy starts you with a blank page — no predefined categories, no guidelines, just a blank space for you to start creating your lists and outlines in. WorkFlowy supports a myriad of keyboard shortcuts for changing the indenting of items, expanding and collapsing them to help your focus, moving items in your lists, adding notes to them and marking them complete. Completed items are crossed out and can either be hidden or left visible as reminders of the work you've accomplished.
WorkFlowy is a free service and requires basic email registration. Watch the video above to see it in action.
