Wunderlist Reviews

Great App...until my data was lost

about Wunderlist Jul 2016

I was loving and recommending Wunderlist to my friends and clients. Had a big project yesterday and put it all up on Wunderlist only to find the list as deleted. And then when I went to delete the list from the web side it was there, could be restored, but had none of the items I spend ALL DAY YESTERDAY adding to the list. I loved this app, now I'm here on alternativeTo looking for an alternative to Wunderlist.

PS Luckily I'm the kind of organized person that I printed a backup yesterday when I did notice here and there small insignificant information seems to be slipping out of the app. I just figured it would be restored when it synced... bummer!


Wunderlist: Best Free To-Do App But Needs Better Integration

Review by jrsilvey
about Wunderlist and Mailbird, Trello, Evernote Jul 2015

I have to say that Wunderlist is my favorite free Todo App. It is cross-platform and you can use it on whichever browser and mobile device that you want. This multi-platform functionality is main reason that I found this app to be so useful.

In a direct compitition of the free versions of Wunderlist vs Todoist, Wunderlist wins hands down. However, if you include Todoists upgraded features and the integrations it has with Mailbird. CloudMagic, and Evernote, then Todoist wins hands down. Wunderlist is great but needs to improve if it wants to cement itself as the front runnner for todo apps.

Both Todoist and Wunderlist have similar extensions with Chrome that are extremely functional and usable. They both have Gmail extensions which allow you to make tasks and lists directly from your gmail. And, most importantly, both Wunderlist and Todoist have exceptional functionality when it comes to working with Trello. Sadly, Wunderlist fails when put to the biggest test; The App cannot make lists with .CSV and comma delimited data.

For those like me, having a hard time deciding and integrating the todo lists in their lives...


You can use this site to import and export information among several of the biggest productivity apps, such as Asana, Todoist, Evernote, Wunderlist and others.


The best to-do app

about Wunderlist and iProcrastinate, Producteev, Evernote Apr 2012

One of the reasons I recommend Wunderlist to my friends is the fact that it's compatible with every major operating system. And it gives you the ability to manage your to-do list from anywhere.

While I can only speak for the Mac and Android versions, the app is a treat to use. Tasks can be dragged and dropped with ease. The interface is positively uncluttered. Ticking off tasks feels so satisfying.

The online sync is the best feature. Syncing works painlessly in the background, and unlike some applications (I'm looking at you, Evernote) it doesn't put up a fuss if your internet is temporarily down.

There are a few more features it needs, such as the ability to sub-divide tasks. I hope they implement this soon.

I tried many others, including Producteev, SimpleTask and iProcrastinate. Wunderlist is the one for me. And it's free!

The user interface for Wunderlist is very pretty, yet it's still simple enough so that you can get stuff done. Overall, I like it.

However, one thing I noticed was that the Wunderlist app for the iPhone is surprisingly memory-intensive. It takes up an average of 15 to 25 MB of RAM at any time. The iPhone 3GS usually has around 80 MB of RAM available at any time, and the iPhone 4 has twice that amount, so this won't really be a problem. But Wunderlist still takes up way more memory than you would expect from a to-do list.
