Make lists and share them
There are many Mac apps for making and syncing lists, but Wunderlist is both powerful and free.
This version sees new features galore, including a spruced-up interface: no radical changes – the wood effect background is still the default, but changeable – but a font change here and a texture removal there combine to give Wunderlist a fresher, more modern feel.
Synchronising with other devices is the most important improvement that’s been made, though. Where once you’d update a list and then have to wait while the changes propagated to your iPhone and iPad, now it’s done immediately.
Collaboration features have also improved: you can now choose to share a list from the same screen where you created it, and some features that were previously only available in the paid Pro version (such as the ability to share files and comment on shared lists) are now here for free – albeit with limitations. There’s also a new Conversation and Activity Center to make it easy to follow what’s happening in your lists.
Lists can also be published on the web. You can share the URL or embed it on a blog or website, and unpublish at any time.
Wunderlist is brilliant; the real-time sync is ideal. There’s still no support for adding tags to tasks, but if you need a task manager with the ability to collaborate occasionally, it’s a great choice. Kenny Hemphill
Wunderlist was one of the Mac’s best task managers, and it’s just got even better. What’s not to like?
Wunderlist now looks better than ever and you can customise its background.
