What can you use the app for?

Listoid is poised to become the ultimate resource for lists online. The application is dedicated entirely to compiling lists that feature the best of anything. The categories are diverse and include broad topics like science, technology, lifestyle, sports, entertainment, society and miscellaneous. The Listoid user community contributes to each list and can vote on items to determine rank. The lists are designed to be similar to wikis so they can be edited by anyone. Lists can also be embedded in the user’s Facebook wall to share items within a social network. Users can also mark lists as a “fave” (or favorite) and add a comment to the list. Top contributors, top lists and “hot” lists are featured on the homepage to help users find the most popular items right away.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Listoid was founded in 2009 by Leo and Philip Guara in Frisco, Texas. The website was intended to provide top lists of everything imaginable. Today Listoid seems to be working hard towards that goal. Users can find almost any kind of list, from best one hit wonders to cutest wild animals and best robot depictions in film.

What are the differences to other apps?

Top lists are a very popular item on the internet today. They can present information in a way that is concise, easy to read and fun. Listoid stands out because it takes this idea to the extreme. Users can build their own favorites list and share it with the community. Other users can in turn vote on a list to elevate it in the ranks and earn the original poster some notoriety on Listoid.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Listoid website as a fun feel to it. The dark color scheme users grey and deep blue with just enough white background to make the site easy to read. The homepage features an example list graphic while actual lists are presented in a white box with a blue vote counter and short description detailing the list’s contents. Lists are also complimented by a relevant thumbnail image to go along with the list’s theme.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can click either the blue “Join” button at the top, right hand corner of the homepage or the silver “Join” button near the center of the page. The short, but stylish, registration form requires only a username, password and email address. A small note at the bottom of the form advises the user that by submitting their information they are automatically agreeing to the Listoid terms of use and privacy policy. After submitting the information, the user must enter a short number code to verify that they are human. Once this is done, the user can return to the homepage and log in to their new Listoid account.

What does it cost to use the application?

Listoid really needs the participation of a large community of users to work. Without the user, there would be no lists, votes or sharing. The website offers membership to anyone who is willing to fill out the form for free. There are no subscription fees or additional charges for being active on the site. No premium membership is offered at this time.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Listoid covers so many topics that almost anyone can find a list of interest on the site. Those who love reading top ten lists online can really get into Listoid.
