Wunderlist: the To-Do app


I’ve searched for numerous to-do lists. I’ve gone through quite a bit. Things. Teux Deux. Firetask. Tada Lists. I know that sometimes you’d have to pay for a really good quality app. My biggest concern was to have it sync over multiple platforms, particularly my desktop, iPhone and iPad. With Things and Firetask, you have to pay across all platforms. I started using those two but it didn’t last long. Tada was handy but sometimes I would just totally forget about it. TeuxDeux I actually used for the longest time. However when I started working on different projects, it wasn’t too helpful and I was adding more than taking off.

Then I found Wunderlist off an advertisement on Forrst.

  1. I’ve been using Things for awhile now and I didn’t mind forking over money for the Mac, iPad, and iPhone apps. I have to agree with Kim – they’re taking way too long to implement syncing. I understand that sync isn’t an easy thing to get right, but Wunderlist seems to be doing a great job at it while keeping their apps available for free. I’m not sure what Wunderlist’s business model is looking like or how they intend on making money, but they have provided a working to-do app solution that’s easy on the eyes. I’m sticking with it… for now.

  2. I’ve been using Things for a while, and it has served me well. It won over Omnifocus originally because of the price difference, but lately (after listening to Merlin Mann and others), I am starting to change my mind. I also bought the book “Creating Flow with Omnifocus” planning to implement the principles from it in to Things, but I quickly found that it just wasn’t possible.

    Things is great for what I use it for; quick access to adding tasks so I can actually keep my promises, but as I am trying to implement the GTD-mentality at I higher level the context features are not near powerful enough.

    Also, they have promised syncing for a very long time, and I just can’t wait any longer.

    Have you tried any of those Things?
