Describing Wunderlist as a list making app is a bit like describing Photoshop as a
tool for editing photographs.
It is a list-making app, but oh,
what lists! You can use it to make anything from shopping lists to work schedules, and you can set alerts to remind you to perform tasks. Lists can be shared with colleagues and tasks delegated, and you can even publish them on the web for anyone to see when you send them the address.
Best of all, Wunderlist on the Mac syncs with Wunderlist on iOS, so you can create lists on one device and have them immediately – and we mean immediately – available on another. The iPhone version also includes an app for Apple Watch, which alerts you to tasks you need to complete. It’s also possible to break down large tasks into subtasks. The Activity Center alerts you as things happen on lists that you share with others – say, when a task is delegated to you.
Wunderlist couldn’t be easier to use and sports the kind of collaborative features and syncing tools you’d normally have to pay a great deal for – Things, for example, charges you separately for its Mac and iOS versions, in order that you can sync them.
Wunderlist looks great too, with a choice of photographic backgrounds which work particularly well full-screen on the Mac. The app is quite simply brilliant. Get it.
