I'm sure you've heard the expression, “there’s an app for that.” Well, when it comes to task management, there’s not just one—the market is filled with dozens of task management apps.

Not all apps are created equal, and some clearly rise above the rest—Wunderlist is one that does just that.

I've been using Wunderlist for years, and I've yet to find an app that can match its versatility and simplicity on its own.

In fact, I use Wunderlist for both personal and business purposes.

My wife and I share a grocery list, general wish lists, and even a honey-do list on the app.

Within my business, I have a number of lists—some for projects I'm working on alone, and some I share with members of my team.

One of the lists I use the most is just called “Blog Post Ideas” filled with an ongoing list of working titles—where I got the inspiration for this post.

For big projects, I occasionally use other apps—such as Basecamp or Trello—but for most stuff, Wunderlist is all you'll ever need.

Here are several reasons you may want to consider using Wunderlist, yourself:

  1. Use it on any device. Wunderlist syncs across devices, so you can keep up-to-date on your task lists using a smartphone, tablet, or almost any computer.
  2. Learn it in a day. I haven’t met a person yet who couldn't figure Wunderlist out in five minutes or less. Some task management apps complicate the productivity process, but Wunderlist keeps it simple—it's intuitive from the start.
  3. Segment your life. With Wunderlist‘s new folders feature, you can organize multiple task lists into folders and call them “Home”, “Work”, or whatever else you need. With this option, you can keep your mind focused on whichever area of life is at hand.
  4. Utilize the features. Despite Wunderlist’s simplicity, it’s chock full of every feature you could need. You can share lists, assign tasks to yourself or others, and even set deadlines, reminders, or create recurring tasks.

I suppose there’s one more key benefit I should add to the list—it’s free. You can sign up for an account today by clicking here.

  1. I find Wunderlist indispensable, and it just keeps getting better. I’m very pleased with the new Folders capability. I also like the way the company communicates timely and useful information to its users.

  2. John,
    I have wunderlist on my iMac but have never opened it. Thanks to you I’m going to give it a try. I really need a good app that can synch across devices and help get me organized.
