A to-do list that syncs with all major devices
We’re a month into the semester now. Are you back into the swing of things yet? Me either. Thankfully, I’ve found an app that will have you productive as ever.
Have I mentioned it’s free?
“Wunderlist” is a to-do list and task manager that’s compatible with almost any device you can think of. iPhone? Yep. Android? You bet. Windows Phone? Sure. It’s even available on the web, so you can access it from your computer without having to to download the application.
Wunderlist helps keep your entire life organized, and it’s dead simple. When the user creates an account, the app suggests a few lists to help organize tasks. The ability to create and rename as many as you want, allows users to move and place certain tasks in the appropriate topics.
Need to study for a test? Put that task in the school list. Need to buy milk? Put that task in a grocery list.
Creating a task is simple – just find the blue button at the bottom with a plus sign on it – and click it to make a new task. From there, you can choose the list you want to place the task in, your desired due date, and when you want to be reminded to get it done.
Wunderlist’s reminder feature is where it really shines.
There are other task manager apps that lack the option to send notifications. What good is a list of things you need to do if you’re not reminded to do them?
If you tell it to, Wunderlist will send you a notification at the time you specify, and can be delivered as an email or phone alert.
You can even set a recurring reminder – like going to the gym at 7 p.m. every Monday.
The hardest part about using a task manager application is remembering to use it in the first place.
Here’s a tip: Set Wunderlist to remind you of things you know you’re going to do anyway.
Set a reminder to feed your pets, take out the trash or go to class. Using the app for tasks you generally remember is a great way to develop the habit of using it throughout the day.
Whether you desperately need to be reminded to get stuff done, or you just want a little more organization in your life, Wunderlist is the best task manager around.
You’ll never forget to do anything ever again.
