If you are like me, you need to create a list; it can be digital, written on paper, drawn on a whiteboard, etc. etc. The point is, that I have to be able to write down those tasks so that they can be crossed off the list and or marked as complete. So when evaluating to-do lists I have tried them all, and while some have more features, some might be slicker design, I have found nothing beats Wunderlist. With a desktop app, browser solution, Apple Watch app, and mobile app, this cloud-based to-do-list packs a mean punch, lets me keep track of what is on my of things to get done, has the ability to upload images, track sub-tasks, and when used with a group keeps it simple and allows the user to focus on the work and not the tracking of the work getting done.
Wunderlist is a simple to-do list and task manager app that helps you get stuff done.

How I use It:
As an individual, I use Wunderlist to drive my week’s planning. Typically, I use the folder feature to drive major buckets of things that need to get done. For example, my usual buckets are Workout/Wellness, Dailey Blend, Reading List, House To Do’s, Meetings to Schedule. Of course, you can use it for however you see fit. Because I plan my weeks on Sunday’s, I typically use the desktop app to plan out the week and then use the mobile app to cross of items while on the move. If I find something fresh or exciting on the web, I will typically tag it to the reading list and get back to reading it in the evening, weekends, or while in transit.
In my past jobs, I have used Wunderlist in a group, and sure it doesn’t let you track velocity, the time it took to close, reports on tickets open, etc. etc. But what it does do is make it super easy to assign tasks to team members, allows you to add sub-lists, upload assets, and provide comments. For teams under 10, this is the perfect tool. For those who have quick projects that only last a couple of weeks, I highly recommend using it, you will like the simplicity of the solution and how it doesn’t overkill you with updates.
