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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

I liked Wunderlist when I just needed a simple task/todo list. Things got a little messy once tasks were more complex and I needed to use the stacking feature within each task for sub-tasks.

Wunderlist is good for departments with lots of people, especially if they're working from different geographic areas. It's also good when there are a number of projects on the go all with different deadlines and sub-tasks. I also find it helpful in situations where one person just needs an organizational tool to track their own things.

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.

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.

A Fantastic Task Manager

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.

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.

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 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.

Groups of people needing to plan a project or share task list, or even manage family affairs will find themselves particularly well-served by this software. Plop in your tasks and issue the invite to your group. Assign to individuals and get notified when tasks are finished, or chat about tasks and share relevant files.
