It seems almost impossible to believe that just three years ago we didn’t synchronise much data between devices. Until recently, most people used just one computer to do everything. Ok, maybe two: home and work, but the fact remains that syncing data normally involved a physical device such as a USB drive.
Of course, Apple users had MobileMe to synchronise contacts and calendars between their Mac and iPhone, but this was before Apple’s Reminders app existed. Despite a whole App Store packed with countless task managers, none allowed the wireless syncing of data until 6Wunderkinder shook things up with Wunderlist and its cloud syncing across different devices. Now they’re back with Wunderlist 2 on the iPhone, but the landscape has changed, so how does it stack up? (more…)
Crowded space. A comment on other task management systems. Something about Getting Things Done, or Pomodoro or Zen or discipline. You know how these sorts of reviews generally go: we want to get more things done, you want to get more things done, and developers want to make some money. While I enjoy reviewing productivity apps, a part of me has grown a bit bored with keeping a task list.
Luckily, that’s not all Wunderkit does. The new product from 6Wunderkinder, the evil masterminds that have released and updated the task-keeping Wunderlist for some time now, Wunderkit is collaborative working redefined. (more…)
Managing one’s busy schedule can almost become impossible without a necessary to-do or calendar app. Luckily, the App Store is filled with them, but finding the right one, free at that, is the ultimate challenge. Look no further than Wunderlist.
Wunderlist, developed by 6 Wunderkinder, is a “cloud-sync task manager,” although sharing tasks with friends and colleagues is only in addition to an overall solid, feature-rich to-do list app. Of course, Apple has their own Reminders app that is available in the forthcoming iOS 5, but it’s nowhere close to the sophistication Wunderlist provides.
So you’re looking for a good task manger? Join the club. We all want the same thing: something beautiful with plenty of features and automatic cloud syncing. We also don’t want to pay for either the iPhone or desktop version. The current trend in web content has taught us that we are entitled to such a service completely free of charge.
Strangely enough, such apps do in fact exist! Today we’ll take a look at Wunderlist, a newcomer making a big splash in the task management world. Also be sure to check out our review of the Mac version over at Mac.AppStorm.
