- Ease Of Use
Do you often find yourself overwhelmed by the amount of work you have? Do multiple tasks add up to the point you don’t know what to do first? Wunderlist is the wonder tool that will help you keep a clean and organized task record.
I attribute Dropbox to a few successful projects because of how easy it is to collaborate by sharing files. Everyone understood the concept that they can drop a file into a shared folder, and everyone could see it. However, when we get to delegating tasks or making sure everyone is on the same page, e-mail and Facebook messages can only get so much done. Wunderlist is the solution to both free personal and collaborative task management, easily rivaling some of the more common GTD apps available for OS X and other platforms. Intuitive syncing, low barrier of entry, and seamless integration with most of your devices finally delivers a solution to customers who want more than a task list, and want it for free.
Any job has its amount of responsibility and daily tasks, sometimes so many you tend to lose track of them. With an already busy schedule, organizing and keeping track of all your tasks could really make a difference in your line of work.
Wunderlist is a good looking, easy to use and versatile program that will help you organize and manage all your daily tasks. Forget sticky notes and reminders written on bits of paper, Wunderlist will keep your tasks up-to-date wherever you go.
Thanks to the cloud based synchronization method, you will be able to synchronize your tasks between your PC, mobile phone and tablet PC with no effort at all.
Free doesn’t have to be the equivalent of “suck,” and Wunderlist is an excellent example of a tool that makes it terribly easy for someone to download and start being productive. A clean website delivering a clean app can only be a good good thing for consumers: a short install process instantly takes you to a login where you can type in an email & password, click register, and not have to be bothered with a web page or e-mail confirmation. The seamlessness in Wunderlist is obvious at the start.
What’s nice about Wunderlist is that the interface is familiar enough where you aren’t worried about trying to learn how to use the app — most of it is pretty self explanatory on its own. The application is very small, occupying only 5.60 MB and is released under the Apache License 2.0, which means you can use it for free, without any restrictions for as long as you want. Wunderlist recently launched the app for Android as well.
Adding a task or a list can be had with keyboard shortcuts, or by using the provided buttons and task bar. Lists group similar tasks, while the tasks themselves can be filtered into starred or completed categories by magnitude of importance. While Wunderlist lacks an implementation of contexts for more GTD-savvy users, I didn’t miss this particular feature (I imagine most people using Wunderlist won’t).
You can star tasks, mark them as complete, add notes (which are implemented quite nicely), and schedule tasks. Task scheduling is apparent by the calendar filters at the bottom of the window, but you’ll have to edit a task to bring up the little clock, or simply click on it when you create a task. From there it’s easy as pie: select a date from the pop-out calendar and you’re off running. I didn’t notice an option for repeating tasks, thus you may be out of luck there.
The killer feature for me is collaboration — it’s terribly easy to have co-workers & friends download Wunderlist since it’s both Windows & Mac, and add them to a list. Everyone can stay on the same page over the cloud, without lots of confusing back and forth e-mails between five of your classmates. For this feature alone, I’m still surprised there wasn’t a hidden price-tag somewhere. We haven’t even talked about how great Wunderlist is on the iPhone: it’s the same seamless experience, bundled in a mobile package. It’s coming to Android as well, which means it’ll be compatible with just about everything! Your friends no longer have an excuse for missing deadlines. If you are not to keen on downloading the app, you can use it directly online for free too.
Cloud based tasks are meant for sharing. If you want to share your tasks list with the rest of the world just use the CloudApp shortcut button and Wunderlist will automatically generate a unique link to spread around. Also what i really liked was the ease of use when compared to other “paid” pro apps like Zoho.com and Salesforce.com, with which i had been playing around with too.
