Microsoft acquired Wunderlist in 2015, and therefore its future is uncertain. It's unlikely Wunderlist will continue to be an (1) independent product with (2) a free version and (3) continue to develop and innovate at a reasonable pace. More likely, Microsoft will at least monetize Wunderlist the way it monetizes its other products. It's also likely that Microsoft will integrate it into its suite of office products and even its Windows operating systems. To see what this is like search the Web for "Microsoft OneNote Mac OS X," and you will find a host of "standard" features only available in the Windows version, "official" documentation and tutorials that presume you have the Windows version (but never say so), etc. One would also expect versions running on Linux to be worse or nonexistent. Also, Microsoft software in general tends to be bloated with marketable features but little concern for efficiency regarding memory usage, processing efficiency, or unobtrusive updates. See More
Wunderlist features the standard ability to add tasks and organize them within lists, but one aspect in which it excels is the amount of detail you can add to each task. Rather than simple alerts, tasks incorporate a number of other options, including reminders, subtasks, notes, and recurring tasks. You can also star important tasks, which is simpler than the priority systems used in many other apps. See More
If you're on the run or away from your device, you can add items to your list by email. You can also add notes to the list item using the body of the message. Wunderlist supports Google Now, meaning you can add to your list using native voice commands on Android. See More
You can easily and automatically create a stand-alone webpage for every single event. Add all the details for the event, then share the event page link with anyone who needs to help/be part of it. You can use comments to discuss details on the event page. Easy, free, makes it easy to collaborate on individual tasks or projects without a big setup. See More
I need to coordinate my task management with my daily schedule/planned events. I use Teamup for both. I have one sub-calendar for events/scheduled things that only affect me (such as calls, work meetings, lunch with friend, etc), another sub-calendar for family events/schedule, and another set of sub-calendars for my tasks and projects. I move tasks from the "New" to "In progress" to "Completed" as needed, using the Scheduler view to see them in a Kanban-style board. There's room for detailed notes (rich text formatting in description box) plus ability to upload or link to media, files, etc. The Basic plan is free and includes up to 8 sub-calendars. See More
