Wunderlist is shutting down. What should I use instead?

Now that Microsoft has officially announced they're shutting down Wunderlist, what should I use instead? I'm not looking for a full project management tool, just simple collaborative task lists. https://blogs.office.com/2017/04...

The world's most powerful to-do list.

This is the closest match to Wunderlist that I've found so far. Perhaps a bit over-engineered for my taste and uses a subscription model, but the free version has all the key Wunderlist features: simple task lists, shared lists which update live, mac/web/phone apps. Not bad.

I actually made this same switch, from Wunderlist to Todoist, several months ago and I couldn't imagine going back even if Wunderlist still was around! It's more intuitive, plain and simple. Has advanced features like labels, priority, and filters if you want them, but those fade to the background if you just want simple tasks. Try Todoist!

I moved from Wunderlist to Todoist over a year ago and I'm completely in love with it. One of my favourite things about it is how easy it is to schedule things - you can write stuff like "Call my grandma the last weekday of every month" or "Read a book every Friday from 12th May" and it'll create a recurring task for then.

I replaced Wunderlist with any.do a while ago. Just felt more right and easier to integrate into my routine.
The 'moments' feature of any.do is one that is the difference maker. Helps you be mindful to re-sort out your list to adjust to the days priorities.
Microsoft To-Do

An intelligent task management app

The app was made by the Wunderlist team, and it will allow you to import your lists from Wunderlist.

I just started using Microsoft's To-Do upon the announcement of Wunderlist's being shut down and I'm shocked at how much I love it! It's got the same core things I loved about Wunderlist— it's clean, simple, and deals exclusively in checklists. It's the exact replacement I was looking for!

What about the app Microsoft is replacing it with? It looks pretty elegant.

Google Keep

Save your thoughts, wherever you are

I've tried almost every to-do app, including Wunderlist, which was wonderful when it just came out, and I've settled on Google Keep, because it just works, it's simple and beautiful, you can easily share your to-do lists (or notes, images, urls, etc.), and it syncs your reminders with Google Calendar.

+1 for Google Keep. I use it for sometime now and will recommend for someone looking for a simple to-do app.

A minimal and sharable task list.

Evan KimbrellFounder, Sprintkick · Written
It's dead simple, pretty, & works on every device. Oh and also its completely free. Just load the site and you're instantly in your list. All the other list apps are just over-engineered and I feel like miss the point.
Tick Tick

Capture ideas, manage tasks, and make life easier

I've found this to be the most natural switch from Wunderlist. In all honesty I wish I would have found it sooner.
Conner DrewProduct Designer, Handsome · Written
I couldn't be happier switching to TickTick from Todoist, and Wunderlist before that. By far the most feature rich to do manager without feeling bloated. Excited in the direction it's going! Don't hesitate to get it!
The main features are free. It has a great reminder's feature and it works very well with recurrent to-do's. It also sports categories to assign each task. It has web and Android versions (not sure if also iOS!).

I was reluctant at first because it looks overwhelming with a lot of options, but I decided to give it a serious try and it is excellent! of course it requires a greater learning curve than other programs, but it's worth the "pain"

This is without a doubt the best and most powerful to-do list application. High recommend this as well as the GTD method for productivity.
Remember the Milk 2.0

Complete redesign and new features for the popular to-do app

Kurtis DaneProduct Manager @ https://vettd.com · Written
I don't have direct experience with Remember The Milk because I use Asana for everything including my personal task list, but it looks like a decent replacement for a simple task/reminder app.
I use it for several years already. Very impressed by 2.0.
With its much improved version 2.0, RTM is the most effective task management software I have tried, and I have been using it daily for as long as I can remember :)

I tried a lot of to-do apps and I still don't think I've found the best one, but the separation between work and home with Wedo works really well.

We've been proud to offer the most free features of any to-do list app. We also just launched Time Estimating and beautiful themes. Import your tasks from Wunderlist and get 6 months free of WeDo Pro over at WeDo.com/import - Good time to checkout WeDo 🙌
I've checked out most of the apps on this list and WeDo is definitely my top choice. Super simple and offers a unlimited sharing for free.

The task management tool, completely redesigned

Arturo D. PardoOwner & Co-founder @ Tu Hogar México · Written
Hadn't really used this tool until 6 months ago, I really used Wunderlist a lot, office and home, so when I had to learn Asana at first I was not very happy. The easy interface both on web and Android app made me love it, you can login with your Google account and that way have two apps, work and home, separated one from each other. You can create multiple teams, projects and tasks, each one shared with different people if you want and you can even attach images or documents to your tasks so things get done faster. I would strongly recommend this app to anyone who is trying to substitute Wunderlist, it's a shame Micr… See more

I find this app to be intuitive to my phone and therefore easy to use when it comes keeping organised. All the apps feel non-native and therefore i ultimately stop using them!
A simple yet great solution to run my everyday tasks and errands! Highly recommended - give it a try.

Dropbox Paper

Collaboration tool built for teams

We use Dropbox Paper for individual to-do lists, team to-do lists, and to discuss to-do items if required very easily. Perfect to use for personal stuff and share with a partner/friends who can easily edit things if you want them to, as well as in a work situation. Also great if your to-do list needs to evolve to have more info, images, videos, etc.
Alex @HomeOfficeSoftware Developer & FIlm Maker · Written
It is a nice tool and easy to use. Reminds me sometimes at Pages with the easy layout features that you can use with drag and drop. If you already have Dropbox integrated into your workflow, why not. But in some way, dropbox is more a FileHoster and so they might not pay too much attention to all the features or maybe even not add many new. And sometimes it is important to think about the future, because you don't want everybody move on to another platform just because the same like on Wishlist happened! :)

If you have tried every app out there, but still having long lists of tasks, but not getting things done. Sorted may be the answer for you. With the task scheduling concept in mind, you can make better decisions about time.

I've literally tried them ALL, and GoodNotes is the only todo app I use steadily. Desktop and mobile versions are great, and it's built on top of Apple's Reminders.
