The problem with lists of things to do is where we keep the list. As remarkable as the human brain can be, it’s not a good place to store lists of what we want to do, or to track projects and tasks. Fortunately, there’s a free way to do just that; Mac, iPhone, iPad.
One of the more popular todo and task management apps on the Mac, iPhone, or iPad is Wunderlist, and it’s kinda sorta free.
Click to add a todo list. Click to add a task to a project. Lists are backed up and synchronized between Mac, iPhone, and iPad versions of Wunderlist.
Lists can be shared with family members or co-workers. Each last can have photos, PDFs, files, and presentations attached (very good idea for sharing and reminders).
Todo items and tasks can be shared and delegated. Each item can also be assigned a reminder with an alert.
For the Mac version, items are easily tagged and prioritized with a click. You can even comment on shared items with others (kind of a built-in messaging system).
The iPhone and iPad versions of Wunderlist work similarly, though the screen interface is a bit more crowded.
How can all this organizing goodness be free?
It’s not. Most of the features are free, so it’s a bit like getting a taste of the candy, but a steady diet will cost you. If you want all the built-in goodies, there’s Wunderlist Pro, which comes with a few more expansive features, including unlimited files, unlimited assigned todo items, unlimited substasks and backgrounds– for a monthly or annual fee (good for businesses or large organizations where everyone uses Wunderlist).
Wunderlist is among the App Store’s most popular apps– Mac, iPhone, or iPad– because it offers terrific bang for the buck. Alright, there’s no buck. Just bang.
