App Name: Wunderlist – To-do & Task
Developer: 6 Wunderkinder GmbH
Cost: Free / Pro $4.99 USD/mo
Now that Astrid is gone, what app or service should you use to manage your tasks or to-do-lists? There are a ton of them out there and my recommendation is to try them first. Most are free, so you can see the features each has and how they fit your needs. After playing around with a few of them, I decided to use Wunderlist. To be honest, I wish I had used them from the get go.
For me I needed a task management setup that had the following requirements:
- Has a web interface (Chrome plugin a bonus)
- Android and iOS apps that sync to the website
- Ability to create folders or groupings based
- Ability to print tasks
Wunderlist has all of these and more, and it only took me a few minutes to setup my account and organize my tasks. I used Wunderlist to organize my app reviews, web projects, and even my scouting activities. I create a folder for each set of tasks (Android app reviews, iOS app reviews, Press releases, etc.) and then create a specific task for each app I need to cover.
You can set due dates, priorities, sub tasks, reminders for each item. It is very easy to reorganize your lists and task and when one is done, just cross it off the list. If you need print your tasks, you can and they are printed out grouped by folder. I never could get Astrid to do that.
The interface of the Wunderlist website is nice and clean and very easy to use. Both the Android and iOS apps look great, sync easily with the site, and have all the same functionality as the web site.
For those that need more, there is a pro version of the service. With the pro version, you can assign tasks, have unlimited sub tasks, attach files (coming soon) and have some other background images.
