It’d be hard to be a fan of web apps and not have heard of Wunderlist. The nearly ubiquitous to-do list app has gone from a fresh contender at its launch in late 2010 to one of the most well-known to-do list apps on the planet. It’s free, fun to use with customizable backgrounds, and has web, desktop, and mobile apps that all work exactly the same. In fact, we used to use it internally at AppStorm before switching to the new Basecamp. It works great, and looks nice: a rather killer combo.
And now, it’s better than ever. Wunderlist 2 already improved the service, but it’s lately gotten a ton of extra goodness, along with paid Pro accounts that add unlimited subtasks, task delegation, and of all things, extra backgrounds. The first two make it a serious contender for professional task management, while the latter keeps Wunderlist’s fun attitude front and center. (more…)
Wunderlist might be one of the best examples of a viral app, ever. Little over 3 months after launching, the 6Wunderkinder team had released native apps for most platforms as well as a beautiful web app, and over 1 million people had started using Wunderlist to keep track of their to-dos and more. Before we started using Basecamp, many of our editors here at AppStorm used shared Wunderlists to keep track of what writers were working on. It was simple, but still worked great.
Wunderlist was only supposed to be a taste of the awesomeness of Wunderkit, the more advanced app from the 6Wunderkinder team that was released in beta earlier this year. It let you keep track of teams, see what others were working on in a social network-type interface, write notes, and of course keep up with task lists. Even in beta, it was widely praised, even here at AppStorm, and many on our team started using it individually.
This past week, the 6Wunderkinder team decided to shift their focus back to their original success, Wunderlist, and shut down Wunderkit. It was a surprising move, but then, Wunderlist still seemed to be the more popular and focused product of the two. Still, though, it made us wonder how many people had started relying on Wunderkit. Are you actively using it, and did this announcement affect your workflow?
I’ve been jumping from app to app, for as long as I can remember, in search of the best web-based task management app. I’ve never really been satisfied until recently when I discovered Flow. Finding the perfect task manager is a little like searching for a unicorn — it’s just not going to happen. But, you can find one that fits your tastes and needs better than any others.
Hopefully our list of the 10 best web-based task management apps will help in your search, if you haven’t already found yours.
Most of us struggle with too many things to do. From projects you need to complete at work or school to the random things you need to fix at your house, there’s simply too much to do each day. There are dozens of to-do list and project management apps for Windows, Mac, mobile, as well as standalone webapps so you can keep up with your tasks online. Many of them are beautifully designed and are simple to use, but they’re often expensive and only work on one platform.
Very few to-do list apps offer an integrated solution to keep your tasks synced between all of your devices. The last thing you need to do is to manage a complicated to-do list sync when you’re already struggling under too many things to do. But many popular apps still don’t sync seamlessly. Today we’re going to look at a new beautifully designed to-do list app that blows all of this away: Wunderlist.
