Global use of blist. If only ...

If you are looking for the service that can function worldwide web-based systems are really powerful tools for this and their value can’t be underestimated.

The system that delivers data at once anywhere you need it to makes you realize what can be done in the digital era in times of global economy.

All boundaries are being extended and the whole world is connected through the Internet, it still amazes me some products out there are designed to be used just by particular culture group/in one country/in one language/etc. But apparently there are some and Blist is one of them.

First of all it’s about data input. For some reason the system doesn't support typing in any other language but English, even though I managed to copy/paste some text in other language without any problem:

And it’s not just me who wants to input the info in other languages, you can check it out here and here.

You have not so many options to choose from to display data and time:

It seems developers don’t suspect there are other currencies in the world apart from USD, I think this is why blist uses only $ symbol for all of them and there is no way to change it.


On this stage blist is not ready for worldwide use. If you don’t live in the US or just want to use it to organize the list of non-English text data you’d better take a look at other product.
