Pros and Cons

  • Reminding you of what is due, when.
  • Syncs across devices and platforms.
  • It's free.
  • The interface could use a refresh, it's a bit dated looking.
  • I worry that Microsoft buying the company will eventually result in it being shut down.
  • Integration of the iOS calendar.

Wunderlist is Wunderful

Pros and Cons

  • Wunderlist retains information that has been checked off. It is easy to uncheck the item as it is needed on the list again.
  • Wunderlist works very well for home and business use.
  • You can share different lists with different people and get alerts as items are changed.
  • If we could sort the list then that would be incredibly helpful.
  • It would be really nice if you could have multiple fields for one line item so you could sort. For example, when remodeling the office we needed certain items done in certain rooms. We listed them by room then by task (ex. Breakroom - Need Trashcan). It was hard searching through the long list. If we could have sorted all the breakroom items together then it would have helped.

Pros and Cons

  • Syncs well.
  • Multi-platform.
  • Can include web links.
  • The big thing is that Microsoft is supposed to be sun setting Wunderlist, or at least was supposed to years ago. I’m hesitant to recommend it if that’s still on the radar.
  • Notification overload. I don’t need an email every time an item is added to Wunderlist. Send me a daily digest or weekly for done projects.

Pros and Cons

  • It creates a wonderful structure for different unrelated tasks to be visible and accessible. This means it's easy to designate information into different areas and flows intuitively when you either have to input more tasks or find a past one.
  • The ability to allocate tasks to other members of a team means that there can be updates in real-time on different lists which is a real godsend when trying to figure out where a project is at.
  • The integration of different lists with due dates around similar times into one place [the Today List] is super helpful in giving you an overview of what needs to be done. This also ensures that a to-do doesn't get lost somewhere.
  • An easier way to input time and dates when entering in information on the fly would be an appreciated additive.
  • A more streamlined desk pop up of today tasks that comes up with the little 'add task pop up'. This would help focus in on daily tasks quicker than going into the application each time.
  • The ability to customize your own background, font size and color would be a lovely add-on

Wunderlist ist sehr gut!

Pros and Cons

  • Clean UI
  • Cloud sync with multiple users
  • Notification to all users when a task is completed
  • The "Inbox" is unneccessary and clutters the simplicity of the app. It should just have lists and nothing else.
  • Sometimes the default screen on the mobile app is a list that I don't use.
  • It would be nice to add more granular priority levels rather than just a star.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Review: Wunderlist

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

  • 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.
