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 details for projects and tasks. Fortunately, there’s a way to do just that on Mac, iPhone, or iPad– and just about anything else. For free.
One of the more popular to-do and task management apps on the Mac, iPhone, or iPad is Wunderlist, and it’s kinda sorta free. Click to add a to-do 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.
Wunderlist runs on macOS, iOS for iPhone and iPad, but also on Android, Windows Phone, Chromebook, Kindle Fire, a web browser, but oddly enough, there is no a Windows PC app. Go figure, right?
How can all this organizing goodness be free?
It’s by Microsoft which has a few dozen apps for Mac and iOS and just introduced a new GTD-like to-do task app called Microsoft To-Do so maybe the Wunderlist shoe will drop in the future and you’ll see a price tag or a death sentence.
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. We don’t know for how long but for now it works well, it gets very good reviews, and it’s free. What’s not to like?
Oh, yeah. Microsoft.
