Wunderlist

I have been looking for a simple task manager, that is easy to use and available on all platforms. There are a lot of great task managers available, such as Things and Omni Focus but many are either too complicated or too expensive. After trying many I think I finally found what I was looking for in Wunderlist.

Wunderlist is easy to use, hit the plus button on the side bar to create an event or main task. If you want to create a task specific for today or tomorrow you can click on one of the two calendar at the bottom. Once you’ve created the main task or event you are ready to create your list for that task. To add to the task you hit the plus at the top on the right side on mobile devices. On desktop simply enter a sub task then hit enter to add the next one. You can add notes, due dates, a reminder and even make the task a priority. Once you completed the sub-task you can either check the box, which will remove it from the list but keep it available to add back, To delete it entirely, just swipe and hit the delete button. You can also add a subtask by emailing it to the email address that is given when you register The subject determines what main task if any it goes under. If you email a task with no subject, it will automatically go into the Inbox list.

The only problem I ran into using it was that on the IPad after you added a subtask and hit done, it didn’t automatically go to the next task line. You have to take your hand off the virtual keyboard and hit the plus again. Hopefully that is something the guys at Wunderkinder can fix. Other then that I really like the product. It is available for Mac OSX, Windows, Android, iPhone, iPad and on the web. I do wish they would charge something for it or create a pro-version, it is worth paying for.
