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.

    Todoist

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    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.

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

      Organize your life with pleasure. Add due date to tasks, tasks inside projects, subprojects and subtasks. Call your friends to join your project and assign tasks for them. Comment and add images on tasks. Have your tasks everywhere with nice apps. Love it.

    Taskade

    A minimal and sharable task list.

    Evan KimbrellFounder, Sprintkick Β· 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.

    Haha, I had now idea Wunderlist shut down (almost a year ago!) and have just kept on using Wunderlist until I read this. Still works fine! Tried a couple on this list and stuck with Taskade. Still not simple enough though for me...

      The best todo list app out there, really nice UI! It is very flexible - it can be used as a vertical Kanban, weekly planner, simple todo list, bullet journal or even for note taking! It can even be used for collaboration with a built in chat. TRY IT 😻

    • Just started using, really like the simplicity and the look

      Hope it won't be overloaded with features (except for critical ones, like moving tasks between lists)

      This will eventually replace Wunderlist, however a year in, the improvements are just not there for me to have hope. It's AI baked daily recommendations could be nice, but again it needs to allow for more types of task listing.

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

      Trello has helped me organize my projects for a while now. Since I work as a software engineer. An example of my boards is sort of where I create tasks then I classify them according to their current position on the sprint. For example I have tasks in different cards such as Icebox, Backlog, Current Iteration and Done. I have set deadlines all ranging from 2 weeks to someday :(. Overall a great product!

    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.

    Asana

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    Arturo D. PardoOwner & Co-founder @ Tu Hogar MΓ©xico Β· 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 Microsoft decided to kill it.

    • Rita VianaGraphic Designer

      I recommend Asana to everyone who is trying to get a more organized life.

      It's good to everything, it's free (until 15 members) and you can choose from 2 different styles: list or board. You can create unlimited projects, you can share tasks between projects with a click, there are chat boxes in every task, it's user friendly and their help forum is ultra helpful even if you never payed a penny to them.

      I can't live without Asana. Just the most amazing thing ever.

    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.

    Alex @HomeOfficeSoftware Developer & FIlm Maker Β· 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! :)
