Overall Satisfaction with Wunderlist

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.
  • It takes up a few mbs on my hard drive, so it's very little effort to install and use.
  • Wunderlist is free, so it was an easy choice for me.
  • Being able to target specific tasks each day makes for better productivity. I've found Wunderlist easy and essential for my personal workflow.
Wunderlist is nice to have as a program instead of a tab in Chrome. It's also a bit less cluttered, so that makes it super easy to use over an alternative like Trello.
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.
