App of the Week: Wunderlist
Wunderlist aims to help users accomplish any and all tasks.
The app provides all the tools to track everything from shopping lists to running a business.
Ever feel overwhelmed by trying to effectively manage and share to-do lists? Well, those days may soon be over, leaving no more excuses for procrastination. Wunderlist aims to help users accomplish tasks on all ends of the difficulty spectrum—the app provides all the necessary tools to track everything from shopping lists to vacation plans to running a business.
Users can schedule recurring to-dos; break down large, imposing tasks into smaller, more manageable subtasks; receive push, email, and in-app notifications; add Web content straight from a browser; and sync lists seamlessly across all devices.
The app boasts numerous useful features. Through “Detail View” users can add due dates, reminders, subtasks, and notes to tasks. The “Mail to Wunderlist” feature lets users send or forward emails to the app to add tasks remotely; and with the company's browser extension, “Add to Wunderlist,” users can add content from Amazon, Gmail, eBay, YouTube, and other sites.
According to The New York Times, Wunderlist “is a powerful app” that's both “easy to use” and “a pleasure to use.”
Don't just take The Times' word for it. After reading these tweets it's no surprise that Wunderlist for Mac was named App of the Year 2013:
@JackParkerTCB I love Wunderlist! I use it for my to-dos, grocery list, freezer inventory, movies and TV shows to watch, books to read, etc.— Jenna Cooper (@lacoopj) May 16, 2014
