NOTE: Originally, this was a review for Wunderkit. Wunderkit is not being developed anymore as 6wunderkinder focuses their development on Wunderlist 2, which was the better product anyway.
What is it?
Wunderlist 2 is the king of all to-do lists. It’s simply the best task management, reminders-like app out there. Period.
For most of you, you probably should just stop reading right here and try it out for yourself. What’s below are just proves the claim that I made above. After all, it’s better to see for yourself how an app can be so functional yet so beautiful as well. It’s almost as if 6wunderkinder took the idea of “form follows function” and threw it out the window because both the form and function of this product are equally outstanding.
Enough jabber, let’s get to the good bits.
It’s not just an iPhone app as many may think. It’s also available on iPad, Andriod, Mac, and Windows. Yep, Mac and Windows. That means that all your tasks will be with you anywhere you go. If you set it to remind you to do something at a certain time and you happen to be on your computer, a notification window will appear on your screen. That’s a nice touch. Of course, Wunderlist will also send you a notification on your phone, too. Oh, and we can’t forget about the web access, too. If your computer/phone aren’t accessible, they have a really nice web app that works just as well. You just won’t get those nice push notifications that you will on the other apps.
All the apps across the board sync together really well. If you edit a task on your computer, you can bet that the change will show on your iPhone. They’ve had some performance issues with syncing but those seem to have been fixed. It’s been running smoothly for quite a few months now.
As I mentioned before, it’s frickin’ beautiful. I could go into depth and tell you how it’s beautiful, but honestly… it’s better for you to just see for yourself.
As far as features go, there’s a lot. I’ll just go over some of my favorites to keep this short. If you want a full list of features, they’re here.
I think the sub-tasks would have to be my favorite. It’s very useful for shopping, homework, etc. I don’t know how I functioned without it.
Another feature that I liked was the ability to share lists with people. This is perfect if you’re always that guy that ends up leading a group project. Make all your friends download this app and you can make a list of what needs to be done that everyone can see. If one person marks a task as done, it updates on everyone’s app. It’s also helpful for grocery shopping, which my family uses it for. If I need something, I just put it on the shared grocery shopping lists and whoever’s out at the moment picks it up and checks it off the list.
Notes. Although it may seem simple, it’s great. At the time of writing a task, it might make sense. When I actually have to do it, it might not make as much sense. Do you ever get up to do something and then totally forget why you got up? It’s the same thing…. wait, that never happens to you? Well… you get my point.
The occasional downtime, but that’s unavoidable and not really noticeable. Also, the option for multiple reminders for a task would be awesome. Honestly, that’s all I could think of for downsides. I haven’t needed to contact support, really. It just… works.
It’s great. Seriously, try it. Do it now.
