Always review checklists to ensure they include at least the normal procedures printed in your aircraft’s information manual. Checklist Pro is not a substitute for official, FAA approved checklists.
ForeFlight Checklist is also handy for use with X-plane or Microsoft Flight Simulator flight sims. X-plane is a trademark of Laminar Research, and Microsoft Flight Simulator is a trademark of Microsoft.

What's New in Version 2.3.1
Optimized for iPhone 5
Use It Every Flight
I use this app for every flight. My iPhone (one handed with an Otterbox belt clip for easy access and storage) and I do the preflight, then my iPad Mini (mounted on my yoke in a RAM mount using iPhone emulation mode) takes over for the rest of the flight. It has allowed me to customize my checklists, adding, enhancing and reordering as I desire.
The initial setup is most easily done via the web page where you can use your keyboard. The data entry is not elegant, frustrating might be a better term, but once you are done, there's little to do until you setup another aircraft.
1) Portrait only. This means that if you use other apps that require landscape or that's how you have your device mounted, you are boned.
2) iPad only via iPhone "emulation" mode. Click on the 2x button to fill the screen. Hey, at least everything is large!
3) No expanded support for larger iPhone screens, just the basic iPhone 5 size.
1) For such a promising piece of software it's beginning to look like abandonware. Yes, it is doing the job, but the interface on the web page could use some cleanup as could some of the app interfaces.
2) Integrate with ForeFlight (split screen mode would really be nice)
3) Native iPad/iPhone 6/6+ support
4) Landscape support
All the downsides considered, I love it. I've got a Grumman Tiger, with a 37 year old POH that I'd like to keep in good shape and this app allows me to keep the POH in the pocket of my cockpit.
CFI likes this Checklist app
I first bought Checklist when working on my MEI in a Piper Seminole. I loved the ability to write custom checklists so that I could organize the cumbersome multi-engine procedures so I could quickly find the right page for normal, emergency, and practical test maneuvers.
Once I started using it, I found that I could then build specific lists for each aircraft in our fleet. Rather than rely on different printed lists in each of our club's planes, I am now have my lists saved on my iPhone and iPad.
Why on both? Simply so I can keep maps and approach plates displayed on my iPad, and dedicate the iPhone to checklists. No need to lose my plates just because I am using a checklist. Of course, this app runs fine on the iPad, and running in 2x mode makes them easier to read than any paper list.
I highly recommend this app to my students.
The poor forgotten app from team Foreflight
OK for an iPhone app. BUT every pilot (at least every one I know) uses ForeFlight and the standard ForeFlight application has been updated multiple times just in the last year.
Unfortunately, they've forgotten this app since inception.
iPad use is currently a bit of a joke. As previous reviewers mentioned there is NO landscape use, only portrait, and 2X view of the phone app is clownish in look and feel.
iPad design could incorporate multiple columns & room for additional information so you could make a "quick" list and "full" list that has EVERYTHING (power settings table would be AWESOME). Similar to all the commercially available printed checklists with both their laminated single card and their extensive spiral bound list.
I'm still wishing the team at Foreflight realizes the need in the market for an excellent checklist app and starts paying more attention to this step child app they've neglected.
