I was whining to a friend, over a glass of wine, that I couldn't keep track of everything I needed to be doing, and that I wanted was the perfect list. Scraps of paper weren't cutting it. Nor were little notebooks. TeuxDeux was clean and snappy but not enough, and neither was the built-in Reminders app on my phone.
In a fit one afternoon, I turned to the google, and I found the holy grail: Wunderlist.
It is well-nigh perfect. It is:
- Available on the web
- Available as a desktop application
- Available as a mobile app
It syncs across all platforms. It lets you have categories of lists, with sub-lists. It has little tick boxes to check off your things. Items can have dates, if they need dates. Very Important Things can get a star. You can PRINT your lists - that might be the part that I actually swooned at. You can email your lists. You can even add items by emailing them to Wunderlist.
Two caveats - though you could have others: it doesn't let you sort your lists, and there's no way to add recurring tasks.
Overall? I love it.
Nope, no one paid me for this. I just like the app, a lot.
