Wunderlist – To-do & Task List. Simplicity & beauty meets productivity (Download)
Feb 15, 2013 7:45 AM –
Wunderlist – To-do & Task List is a super powerful to-do app with plenty of functionality. The service offers multiple to-do lists, sharing and collaboration, cloud syncing, note-taking and reminders. All this functionality is wrapped in a smooth user interface that’s incredibly simple to use. If your to-do app is a bit lacking for your needs, this might well be worth checking out.
Tested on: Nexus 4
Pros & Cons:
- Ability to share lists and collaborate with friends/family/colleagues!
- Online syncing!
- Lots of functionality!
- Nice user interface!
- Design is nice, but very much inspired by iOS rather than Android.
- Could do more in the way of allowing you to prioritise your tasks.
Wunderlist is an incredibly effective and easy-to-use to do app that can integrate itself into your mobile and online web life to keep you organised, punctual and productive. It’s a nicely produced application too, with smooth user interface and plenty of functionality. My own experience of to do apps leads me to thinks that use of such services can depend very much on the user and what s/he uses it for. Wunderlist is not the most advanced app of the genre, but it also offers features that will suit people who need more than a simple ‘list’.
Perhaps the most useful element of the app is the ability to separate your tasks. If you have multiple jobs related to different projects or spaces, the app allows you to keep these separate. So, if you’ve got different responsibilities to see through at work, with friends or at home, these can be categorised and organised appropriately. Further, tasks can subsequently have sub-tasks for productivity on a more macro level. Additionally, you can share the lists you make and even collaborate on the items required for a particular project; add notes, new tasks and so on.
Watch on Mobile
While this review focuses mostly on the Android application, you can download a Windows or Mac client and the various platforms will sync together enabling you to stay organised and productive wherever you are. If much of your work takes place in front of a computer, this is an essential feature and something that the better to do apps utilize. It also means your list remains saved regardless of whether you lose or change your device(s).
The design is pretty slick, but it very much looks as if the app was wholly created with iOS in mind. It’s an app that would look practically native on an iPhone, but then also very different on an Android. If you really value the Google Holo aesthetic, you will not find it in Wunderlist. Another small issue is that there is perhaps not enough control over the way you can prioritise your tasks. While you can add dates and times to them- for perhaps deadline purposes- there’s no way to sort the tasks accordingly. It’s not the end of the world, but here is where the app lacks a small part of intuitiveness.

For keeping track of your jobs/tasks/chores/duties, it’s a great app that can help keep you organised. Spanning across various platforms and including the ability to share and collaborate to and with friends, it’s an app that has the potential to embed itself into your daily schedule and maintain your productivity.
Ease of Use:
The app could perhaps use a few more hints here and there, but it’s mostly intuitive. It perhaps has more in the way of features compared to other similar popular apps such as Any.Do but whether you would benefit from these depends on how you plan to use the application.
It’s an app that is designed to be used on a daily basis- even hourly if you need it.
The interface is very smooth and well designed. It reminded me very much of the iPhone’s iOS and would perhaps suggest it was created initially with this in mind. Therefore, while it still looks great, it never feels particularly native to Android in the way Any.Do comes close to, or even Tasks which, designed using the Holo principals, feels virtually part of Android.
