Locate the list you just created in the "List(s) in Cloud only" category and then click the download button. If there is already a list with the same name on your local device,  the name will appears in the "List(s) in Device & Cloud" category.   

From this point on, you can edit the list either on your device or in a web browser. You can synchroize the changes to the list between your device and the cloud server.

Share a list with a friend so he/she can collaborate on the list

Select the "cloud" button or menu item and log in if necessary. Select the "Share with a friend" option and then enter the email of your friend.  (If there is no "Share with a friend" option, click "Sync/Upload with/to Cloud" to upload the list to cloud first.) You friend will receive an email notification with the instruction on how to share the list.
