I have the habit of writing down a lot of things that pass my mind throughout the day. This ranges from new projects over daily tasks like reviewing software on Ghacks to non-computer related things like creating a cool boardgame or doctor appointments.
I usually do that on a small notebook that I carry around with me all the time and transfer the writings every now and then to the PC.
Wunderlist is a versatile application that aids users in their task management. It actually offers more than just task management but more about that later. Users need to create an account on the first run of the software before they can use it. This is done by submitting an email address and password to company servers.
The main interface is displayed afterwards which lists tasks on the left side and folders on the right. Folders are used to group tasks for easier access and management.
Tasks are added with a click of the mouse or with one of the available hotkeys (Ctrl-T or Ctrl-N). Tasks are marked as complete with a click on the square at the front and marked as important with a click on the star.
It is also possible to add notes to tasks to add more information and to delete tasks.
Folders are added as easily and it is possible to move tasks around using drag and drop.
The search at the top finds matching tasks in all folders and displays them together in the main interface.
The footer bar offers several filtering options, for instance to display only completed tasks or those that have been marked as important, or filter tasks by time.
Tasks are automatically synced with the user's account which makes it possible to log into the software from another computer to access the same data.
Lists can be printed or send by email to friends. It is further possible to share tasks and notes with other users of the service.
Wunderlist is not only available for Windows but also for Mac and iPhone. An Android version is in the works as well. Wunderlist is a handy, very responsive task management software that's ideal for users who work on different computer systems and devices regularly.
