A Wonderful Wunderlist Review

My experience with Wunderlist has only been through our Marketing department. We use it to keep on track with our projects and be able to share what we are working on with other employees. It's great to be able to pull up our lists when we are not at our workstations.
  • The user interface is extremely easy to navigate.
  • Using the application, and going from desktop to mobile, had no hiccups.
  • The ability to share your lists with others is extremely helpful.
  • I wish there were options to mark tasks at a percentage of being done. Visually represented with a timeline/bar graph/ticker would be helpful.
  • It would be nice to have different colored flagging options.
  • I'd like to be able to update the background photo to be more personalized.
Wunderlist is well suited for anyone that wants to stay on task for a project in their life. Something as simple as keeping a grocery list organized between a couple is made even simpler with Wunderlist. I'd say it's less appropriate for projects that require a large amount of tracking detail.

Task Management - Task are divided among multiple peers ranging from developers,designers, backend/frontend Engineers, product owners etc.
Time Management- Each task can be associated with an estimate of deliverables associated with it, helping keep track of time in a representable manner,
Priority Management - You can categorize task based on the priority they hold.
  • Cross Platform Support - You can create task on one device and access it on the other which includes cross platform support like iphone and mac as well.
  • Mac app support - It gives a beautiful mac apps as well along with iOS app.
  • Management app
  • Its all done and dusted- From one of the recent tweets from the founder of the wunderlist, it is likely to be taken down and replaced by one of the apps for a tech giant.
  • Improvements would have been faster APIs, better syncing
  • Role management - this feature would have been great where there will be permissions for actions based on the user priveleges
Task Management, Time management, and Team Management.

A colleague and I use Wunderlist as a simple to-do list that can be shared between us since I work remotely and he is usually not at his desk. We decided to try Wunderlist a number of years ago because we needed a simple tool that was able to automatically sync tasks between both of our phones. It's not used company-wide, but we began using it between the two of us about four years ago.
  • It's very easy and intuitive to use.
  • The user interface is streamlined and the perfect size for reading and using.
  • You can have multiple lists so that you can have a separate to-do list for each project.
  • The sync functionality is not very reliable.
  • The web interface is not any different than the mobile app's UI.
  • It's not easy to see which tasks have extra information/notes attached.
Wunderlist is well suited if you need an easy-to-use list app that can be shared with multiple people. Due to the reliability issues, we do not use this for critical tasks or tasks that need to have collaboration involved, such as being able to create comments and attach files. Because of the sync issues, I also wouldn't use this as a personal list tracker where you aren't sharing it with anyone because sometimes you can create a task but then it will disappear for a while and "may" come back once the sync issues were resolved. Honestly, I think this app is probably more on the level of being a grocery list rather than a corporate project tracker.

I have a team of about 10 people within an organization of about 150 people. We use Wunderlist to collaborate on tasks, projects, and lists. One user can create a list (say a list of people we need to reach out to for the first time) and others can contribute, leave comments, add tasks, etc. This makes teamwork much easier. Often times in a meeting, we will just open up our Wunderlist and go through the tasks we've collaborated on. Our team communicates and tracks work frequently on the app.
  • Organizing. It is very easy to organize your notes and different lists. It really streamlines my thoughts. I never open Wunderlist and am confused about my notes.
  • Sharing. Sharing my notes or lists with others and adding them to different projects is very simple and easy. We've never had an issue.
  • Loads fast. Your information can be pulled up quickly in Wunderlist. This is essential as I'll be in a meeting and have to pull up a reminder quickly.
  • Creating new lists on the mobile app can be complicated, more so than it needs to be.
  • I never use the scheduled reminder feature, yet the app seems to really want me to. If it's unneeded it should be easy to remove.
  • Deleting tasks and comments can be confusing.
I first started using Wunderlist simply for tasks management and reminders. What surprised me though is how often I'll use it for taking notes in a meeting. It's very handy to quickly write down a reminder or note that I want to be able to return to later without having to search for it too much. I can even quickly add someone else to the list if the reminder is an assignment for them.

We decided to use Wunderlist as a way for our company to collaborate on current projects and streamline communication. It makes it easy to manage deadlines and group projects as well as people involved in tasks
  • Simplicity of use
  • Project process and visibility of progress
  • communication between users
Wunderlist is great for small groups to collaborate on projects and manage time spent on tasks. I can't speak to it's use in a large scale deployment but it worked great for my needs.

I use Wunderlist to keep track of both large and small tasks. For a long time, I kept my trusty notepad with a running list of to-do's, ready to jot down new items as they were thrown at me. That system had a number of fail points. Wunderlist allows me to have my list available no matter where I am. I have also used it to share lists with other users to keep projects in sync and everyone on the same page with what needs to be done.
  • Wunderlist is great for organizing tasks. The ability to create lists of lists, assign due dates, reminders, repeating tasks, etc makes Wunderlist very valuable.
  • Wunderlist is full featured, but very intuitive. For being so very capable, it's not complicated.
  • Having my Wunderlist content available via the desktop app, mobile app, or the web is a life-saver.
  • I am not sure what the future holds for Wunderlist. Microsoft purchased Wunderlist a few years ago and, while it's still around, there have been plans to shut it down or replace it with a new Microsoft branded solution.
  • A competitor "Things 3" has a nice category called "Anytime" which moves things out of the inbox, but doesn't give them a due date. This is a nice area I wish Wunderlist had. There are a number of tasks I would like to get to when I have spare time, and this is a great way to handle that.
Wunderlist is great for task-based lists (including sub-lists). If you value lists and organizing those lists, Wunderlist is fantastic. The pricing is awesome and I love it for individual task management and limited small-team task management.
It is not great for my complex team project management. There is no real commenting system, so the complexity is limited there.

Wunderlist is a fast list building application to add into your daily workflow

I use it as a business owner to keep on top of tasks that I need to take care of. Adding a task to Wunderlist (and then integrating into my Google Calendar) puts the task in quick access and always keeps it where I can be sure to not overlook it. I find this to be extremely helpful as if I had to always refer to Wunderlist directly, I would not do it as often as I look at my calendar.
  • Task sent to the calendar.
  • Sends reminders daily and per task quickly and easily.
  • Easy and intuitive interface that allows you to quickly add your task without having to worry about figuring out how to navigate the tool.
  • Having an intuitive "smart" feature so if we put a task that says Wednesday at 9 a.m. it automatically adds that day/time.
  • It would be nice also if there were the option to add more details when you are first creating the list item instead of having to create it and then update the details for any associated files or notes.
Wunderlist is great when you want to just quickly create a new list item and group those lists into a matching category. This helps in creating a full list of tasks required in order to complete a project. Since it seems to lack the ability to add more detail easily when first creating the list item you sometimes have to create your listed items and then return to the list to add additional notes and details.

The best to-do list features for the price

I mostly use it to manage my personal tasks. I have them organized according to lists and then folders. Because Wunderlist’s web app is seamlessly integrated with Time Doctor (our own time tracking software), it greatly helps me monitor and improve my workflow.
  • Cross-platform app. Can be used on a mobile or desktop device.
  • Has all the essential features of a to-do list app.
  • Sub-tasks and folders.
  • Collaboration.
  • Their Chrome extension could use a little more updated.
  • No support for the product anymore since the Microsoft purchased it.
Wunderlist suits people who depend on to-do lists to manage their day to day tasks but the default macOS, iOS, or Android reminders don’t suit their ‘advanced’ needs.

We currently use Wunderlist to keep tabs on different departments in real time. Each person adds items that are needed from various stores. We also add tasks related to departments and are able to see who completes the item in the list. It is miraculous to be at a store and simultaneously see a new or already purchased item so we don't duplicate work and make sure we have what is needed asap. It keeps everyone in the loop.
  • Create lists and place them in categories. If you need more than one list for an organization or department that can help a lot with simplicity.
  • Synchronization of lists with others. You are able to add people to any list and they can see exactly what is there. Seamless.
  • Easy interface, user friendly. It doesn't take a bunch of tutorial videos to learn to use.
  • Would love if you could connect Wunderlist to Google Tasks, that integration would be lovely.
  • Would also love a progress bar for something you might be working on so it could be also used as a task identifier and tracker.
  • Would love if there was a public link to share a particular list so you could post on social media, email, or text; this way, people could choose a list item or help fill the list items for you one time but you don't have to share the list with people permanently.
Wunderlist is well-suited:
  • When you are packing.
  • When sharing purchasing needs with multiple people in organization. It helps the person shopping know what everyone needs.
  • When creating tasks for a group of people but not assigned specifically - it's really who is able to complete it first.

We use Wunderlist to help track tasks that need to be completed. These tasks are sort of a daily scheduling tool to track things that are on a running to-do list. Helps to stay organized and be reminded of pending tasks.
  • Wunderlist works great as a daily to-do scheduler. I have made categories for tasks based on days of the week. Things that aren't accomplished on Monday's list can be shifted into Tuesday's list. This means you can stay on top of the entirety of tasks to be accomplished.
  • Wunderlist syncs with the mobile app so you can create and complete tasks on the go. This is helpful to stay organized.
  • Wunderlist has a good depth of task customizability. You can tag tasks that are similar, as well as add due dates to them. Notes can also be taken, and you can add files to tasks.
  • Wunderlist is simple to learn and requires zero training. For smaller projects it's an ideal workflow.
  • Wunderlist works best as a single-user tool. You can add other users to lists, but it's not a great multi-user project managing software. It doesn't organize itself in a way that, even from a UI standpoint, makes sense for project management on a larger scope.
  • Wunderlist lacks a calendar feature to help plan ahead, furthering its use for smaller projects, or single-user interface.
Wunderlist is best for single-user or small projects requiring input and management of only 1-3 users. Projects larger in scope likely need a big interface. It works extremely well for planning a daily to-do list for personal use. I've found it essential in keeping track of what little items I need to knock off the list each day, but it's not so good for plotting lots of bigger tasks.

This is our favorite to-do app! Our entire team uses it. Although we're using other project management tools in order to run our business, Wunderlist is used for small tasks that would fall through the cracks without it. For example, action items from meetings, quick tasks that come up during the day etc.
  • Segmenting your to-do's in separate lists
  • Having notes with each to-do
  • It has notifications feature as well as due date
  • I'd love to see integrations between Wunderlist and tools like Slack or Drive
It's such a simple and effective tool! If you need an app to safely store your To-do's and make sure you stay on top of things, this is it. You can divide tasks lists into folders (like "home" and "business"), share the lists with co-workers, set notifications, even mark items as a priority. It's great for smaller, day-to-day tasks but if you need something to manage a bigger project or a team, you should look into more robust project management tools. Although this is a great app, it cannot replace tools like TeamWork, Basecamp etc. But they work great together!

Wunderlist | The Best At Task Management

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

I currently use Wunderlist to help me manage tasks, both repeating and unique. My department is the primary user of this application but it has been used to some degree by a few other departmental leaders as needed. It has been very helpful in working with my team to have a way to clearly list our tasks, while also assigning somebody to the task and a time when it is due. It has been very helpful to be able to attach files, leave comments, add sub-tasks, and have a section under each task for notes. The primary problems it addresses is lack of clarity on tasks (knowing due dates and person responsible) and cutting down the number of on-going email threads. Specifically, with the latter, it's been great to have the ability to have conversations within each task under comments with users and not have to go through the process of finding the proper email thread.
  • Clarity on needed tasks to be done.
  • Clarity on who is being assigned to each task.
  • Clarity on the time frame each task is due.
  • The ability to add additional steps under each task with sub-tasks.
  • Viewing more than one task at a time.
  • Email forwarding tasks - sometimes can be buggy and not always smooth.
  • Option to show more detail on a task without clicking task - example: being able to see attachment without clicking on task to view.
Wunderlist is a fantastic task management system, not the best project management system. For a long time, I tried to use Wunderlist to plan large events with multiple users and it wasn't as effective. But, once we simplified our desired outcome to accomplishing tasks that repeat or are unique to a given work-week, we had much more success. Now my assistant can manage her weekly tasks and give feedback through this app. I can also add tasks, assign them and see what is being accomplished.

Tasks lists - Achieving productivity has never been easier

Wunderlist is a great app to manage tasks. In particular, in our company, it's used to assign tasks to employees among the different ongoing projects. The ease of use and simple interphase makes it a great app to fastly know what's the next thing you need to achieve. It really helped us to prevent the overlap of more than one person doing the same thing and to cover all the tasks that are needed to be done on time.
  • It's great to separate tasks in different subjects.
  • Having "sub-tasks" in every project is a great feature.
  • It's really easy to use and to set deadlines, and also to share with other people.
  • It has different ways to arrange the lists of tasks which is a more useful feature than what it might seem.
  • Even though the UI is simple, I think it has room for improvement to get a little more modern.
  • It would be great if you could expand the tasks to see the subtasks it has.
I think Wunderlist is a great app to take track of what you need to do, and it gives you the versatility to have it integrated with your personal tasks, which is great when you need to see the big picture of what needs to be done. It's easy to use, easy to learn and really easy to share, improving your productivity to the top!

Wunderlist: A wonderful way to organize and manage projects

My training department uses Wunderlist to organize our developed, developing, and prospective training projects from beginning to end. We are able to manage client communication, collaborative training building, and research. Wunderlist allows us to share across accounts and devices, from PCs to smartphones, making it accessible at work and off-site at trainings or in other places. Prior to using Wunderlist, we relied on Excel spreadsheets that were hard to keep up-to-date.
  • Uploading and saving documents related to project management
  • Sharing across accounts and platforms
  • Integration with calendar and other applications
  • Better interface for viewing subtasks
  • Better communication between users
Wunderlist is great for managing large projects across a team, managing complex tasks, and organizing tasks across a team. It is less suited for individuals, smaller projects, or projects that require unique software file uploads (like ArcGIS, Emme, SPSS, etc). But for projects built in common software programs, this is a great solution.

Wunderlist is a wonderful checklist app that helps our organization stay organized through shared lists and resources. Our project managers can assign out tasks and this app lets deadlines and reminders be set. Since we implemented this software we can communicate to other employees with push reminders and projects are no longer falling behind because of a missed action item.
  • Multi-user checklist communication
  • Push mobile notifications
  • Clean interface and easy to learn style
  • I instinctually push the Plus button to start a new list but instead, it pulls up just a task. To start a new list the user must scroll to the bottom of their lists.
  • Additional "help" or tutorial information.
  • More social media connection capabilities.
A project manager has items from different business sectors that all need to be on time so the project isn't delayed. They can set up tasks with deadline dates, send out the invitation to the individual, and they can have reminders set to turn in their work. If a project is delayed it can easily be fixed to match the new dates.

Wunderlist is being used by myself to help keep things organized. Its used to make sure tasks that need to be done get done on time. With so much to do on a daily basis new items come in that can push out older items leaving to things being forgotten about. Wunderlist is being used to help with that issue.
  • Tracking of to do items with deadlines and reminders
  • Sync across all my devices and computers so no matter where I am I have my list.
  • Ability to create different lists to separate to do items
  • Interface can feel dated
  • Customize background I want to clean it up
It is a solid to do management system, looked at a number of different solutions and Wunderlist was the best fit for me. It did what it needed, has reminders, synced across all my computers and phone so I always had my task list no matter where I was or what I was using.

I personally use Wunderlist and have been an active user for around 4 years. It's the only to-do list app that really helps me complete my tasks, both professional and personal. It's very easy-to-use and you can sync between all your devices - Macbook, iPhone, iPad and so on. I love how simple and also flexible it is.
  • Creating different lists and tasks, both for personal and professional purposes. It's very easy and also gives a lot of options when creating a task.
  • Setting up due dates and reminders. It helps me complete my tasks.
  • Wunderlist design and overall user experience is great, I love it.
  • Maybe would be great to add some integrations - e.g. with Trello, Slack and other similar tools which can boost the value of Wunderlist even more.
It's a great task management tool both for professional and personal life. You can use it to set due dates for your tasks and get reminders whenever you want. I think it's great for small teams and for personal use. It's probably not suitable for larger companies.

Easy to connect with different groups and keep an eye on their respective progress. Great portability since I use it mostly on my phone. It helps the user to keep a checklist/to-dos handy and mark them off when going through work. I have seen smaller details falling through cracks under the heat of work. Even the most careful person forgets to do a vital task sometimes. Having an easily accessible checklist really helps, in this case, to stay focused on the steps.
  • Wunderlist is what you need for your to do lists. It's really simple to use.
  • Allows you to set due date to your lists, share them with your team and/or create a folder to divide and organize all your list set
  • Also, Wunderlist is compatible with all platform and devices. So you can always be updated on your list or work on them from wherever you are and with all the devices you have.
  • It doesn't have all the professional tools as other top task manager products
  • I don't see any group policy control, so sharing lists with more than a handful of people on a regular basis may get annoying to set up.
  • Setting a reminder time on the web interface is lacking the "Morning, Afternoon, Evening" style shortcuts, and takes more mouse clicks than it should to set a time.
  • When setting due dates for tasks for other people, it does not send them notification reminders.
Real planning is a few steps: the first is a notebook. At this stage, many people are comfortable since the time of the king of Peas. The second stage is the program TUDULists. Their difference from a paper is convertibility and interactivity. The third is scheduling time by calendar and priority of tasks. The fourth is already project-management and a vector for plus-infinity of development.

WunderList is a second-level program. Very simple, to use by myself. The entire planning process is built on a simple scheme: created by a task - classified it by time and direction - set subtasks in it - did it when the time came.

A very big disadvantage of the program is the absence of any kind of calendar. It is impossible to track the volume of tasks for a day, a week, a month. A novice in the planning can fall into the trap: "the more I write the problems, the more I will have time." The tasks can be very time consuming and it's not obvious at first sight. This entails a breach of deadlines, a constant shift of tasks and, as a result, frustration in planning.

An exceptionally simple to do-list for small teams. We've used this for individual projects that did not fit a particular scheme or criteria. Workshop or seminar to do's etc. The bravado is in mobile usage with good push notifications. If the case is more complex we'll use Trello, but good for tiny stuff.
  • Mobile
  • Tiny projects, quickly defined, quickly done
  • Good web-based view as well
  • Quirky ui
  • Missing integrations
  • Hierarchical tasks
Excellent iPhone support. Small tasks, quickly done. Lots of mobile users using this to eliminate simultaneous execution. Less complex than Trello. Straightforward usage, thus really easy to teach to other users without breaking a sweat. Shopping-list type of issues either done or not done. If using Slack or other comms tool, I'd go for something else.

Wunderlist is being used to help organize business tasks and personal tasks. It is able to sync up to my phone and the version I have is free! It's great for small business that are looking for a task management app that is free and can be used on desktop and mobile.
  • Syncs with phone and desktop.
  • It is aesthetically pleasing to look at it.
  • You can share a task list with other people that use Wunderlist.
  • I would like to have a calendar view with the app.
  • Sometimes it takes a while to sync up.
  • I wish I could add more labels or change colors to sort things.
It is well suited for small simple tasks as well as a personal to-do list. It is less suited for big and complex tasks with mini-deadlines and multiple steps to complete. It can also feel very overwhelming if you have multiple people on your team. I have found it more helpful with smaller teams and for personal use.

I use Wunderlist to keep track of my tasks across the companies I work for and personally. I am the primary user of Wunderlist. I often use Wunderlist in meetings so that I can immediately document any tasks that I have been assigned. I use my Windows 10 Mobile phone for this and all the tasks sync across to my desktop and laptop computer automatically. Wunderlist is the tool that I use that gives me the tasks for each day. I simply look at my list and start addressing all the tasks that are needing to be accomplished.
  • Wunderlist syncs across all my devices flawlessly. I use a Windows 10 Mobile phone, Windows 10 desktop, Windows 10 laptop, and sometimes use an Android tablet and iPad.
  • Wunderlist allows me to see just my starred items so that I can focus on the tasks that are most important. This helps me prioritize my day and stay focused on tasks that are truly important.
  • The ability to set due dates as well as reminder dates separately is a very nice feature. Just because a task is due in two weeks doesn't mean that I want to be reminded in two weeks. I like to have reminders set on particular days so I don't panic and rush to get a task done close to the due date.
  • You can connect your task due dates to a calendar feed in Microsoft Outlook. This allows you to see due dates for your tasks on your calendar. This is very handy when you have a lot of tasks with due dates.
  • There is no ability to select your own custom background.
  • There are very few backgrounds to choose from. There are a few good ones, but they aren't that great to begin with.
  • Synchronizing can sometimes be slow. Expect to wait a few seconds after you open the app before it fully synchronizes.
  • If the app is open on your desktop/laptop, and I add tasks on my phone, the changes do not sync to my desktop/laptop unless I click on the sync button. The system should have the ability to let you set an automatic sync schedule.
Wunderlist is a fantastic "to do" list application and can fit in with almost any organization or for personal use. I would say that its tasks are only so deep, so if you need really detailed tasking, you may want to look elsewhere. Each task can have subtasks and notes, but that is all. You can't assign due dates or reminders to subtasks, but I don't really need that level of detail. For personal use, I would never suggest using Wunderlist as a grocery list or list of items to buy. There are better apps for that.

I use Wunderlist primarily for personal to-do management, but have used it for work related tasks in the past. When used for work, I use it primarily individually to manage my own personal tasks, not project work. Typically project work gets captured in a project management tool. Wunderlist is great for the small tasks that don't end up on a team tool.
  • Building categorized to-do lists, shared to-do lists (e.g., with a spouse or family).
  • Extremely well done user interface. It does all the key things I want from a to-do app, and nothing that gets in your way.
  • Great integrations with other productivity apps (email, calendar, etc).
  • Honestly, there is very little that feels missing or that could be improved. It does everything that I want it to.
As long as you are looking to manage your own personal tasks, Wunderlist is perfect. It also works quite well if you want to share some tasks with a few other family members or colleagues. It seems to work less well for "project" work or larger groups (although I admit I haven't really tried that).

I use Wunderlist to track things like shopping lists, books I want to read, movies I want to watch, house chores, and so on. I have also used it to implement the GTD system - and it works perfectly for that.

Wunderlist is great but why waste your time when Microsoft is replacing it?

We currently use Wunderlist as a simple task tracking app. We previously used the tasks in Outlook but they were easy to overlook in all the clutter or emails and calendars, and the integration between the three never really worked the way we hoped. Wunderlist provides a clean and simple way to track what we have accomplished and what still needs done without any distractions. We use it for special IT projects, accounting reminders, and recurring reports we need to create and review.
  • Smart due dates are the greatest thing about Wunderlist. I can tell it to "print past due reports on Monday" and then set that up as a repeating event.
  • It's clutter free. When I'm creating or assigning tasks I like to have a distraction free area to think, and the simplicity of Wunderlist gives me that.
  • The fact that I can look at it on my phone, on the web, and on my PC and it always looks the same is great. I can always tell what I'm doing b/c of their consistent design choices.
  • I would love to see more repeating options like every other Monday, or the last Friday of every month. As well as smart dates that allow for repeating like every Monday.
  • Something that is missing is a way to see what percentage of sub-tasks are complete. I wish the top level task bar would fill as the sub-tasks were completed.
  • The fact that it's being replaced by Microsoft To-Do. We use Office 365 so eventually I hope this integrates with the other apps, but for now we are all in limbo.
It's best for smaller companies where people are not working in teams, or in charge of multiple departments. It lets you keep everything in sight when you would otherwise forget it. This wouldn't be the best option for teams or larger companies as the sharing and team tasks don't work as well as dedicated programs.

Wunderlist is great because it can combine your personal tasks with your business tasks whilst keeping both separate and organised.

Being able to create lists with different headings ensures all tasks are grouped accordingly. These tasks can have reminders set, due dates, and can - quite satisfyingly - be ticked off. Once ticked off the task will disappear from the list however it is not lost forever and it is easy to recall previous tasks and even reinstate them to your lists. You can sort your tasks however you would prefer, you can share them with others and you can print if needed. Having the synchronisation between my desktop version and mobile app is also so beneficial as it doesn't matter where I am I can tick, edit or add tasks. I found this tool easy to use within business as I could share my to-do lists with my supervisor whenever she needed an update on what I was doing. This saved time from writing lists within e-mails or down on paper.
  • The satisfaction of being able to 'tick' off tasks and having a sound that goes with this makes the transition of note-taking from paper to screen easy and fun.
  • Being able to recall any tasks you may have already ticked off is a great assurance that your progress can be checked at any time.
  • The syncronisation from mobile app to desktop version means you always have control over your lists.
  • Maybe being able to add media e.g. photos to a task would be helpful?
  • Being able to talk to the app and make a voice recording of the task you need if you don't have time to write?
  • Being able to take a photo of text you have writen down and the app turn it into a task for you?
Wunderlist is more suited to an individual creating, managing and completing tasks; however, it can be useful in the workplace to share with others what your tasks are. I don't think there is enough space for detail for groups to collaborate on projects etc., However, if its a list of what needs to be bought for the office kitchen, for example, it's a great place to combine ideas into a list.

I started to use Wunderlist on my own to help organize our estimating and project management initiatives.
  • Integrates with Microsoft Outlook
  • User friendly platform
  • Format is easy to read and understand
  • I'd like to see more project management style functionality, it's almost there.
  • More intergrations
I've tried using it, but unless I force the rest of my team to adopt it, I didn't find it very useful.
