Index of /kitlist

Kitlist allows you to maintain lists of kit that you may require for various activities.  These may be for a vacation or a business trip.

The concept is that you maintain a full list of all items you may require for any activity.  Items can be grouped into categories.  Categories may relate to specific trips, or simply used to group items, e.g. items for hiking, cycling or horse-riding.  Each item may be in many categories, so any changes to an item are immediately reflected in all categories that it belongs to.  Items can be copied to and removed from categories in a variety of ways.

Two versions of Kitlist are currently available:

  1. Open-source GTK+ version for Linux, Maemo, Windows and Mac OS X
  2. Free (closed-source) version for Android version 2.2

The following documentation is currently available:

The latest stable version is 0.6.10.
