The ubiquitous to-do list app, Wunderlist since its creation in 2011, has helped millions of people in organizing their ideas for perfect execution. But as the May 6 shutdown of Wunderlist is almost upon us, this is perhaps the best time to move to an alternative service.
While Microsoft had acquired Wunderlist about five years ago, and later debuted its own to-do list app called Microsoft To Do, which incorporates several of the features in Wunderlist. Now, Wunderlist users will no longer be able to use the list-making app, and Microsoft's To Do list app will replace it in May 2020.
If you're looking for alternatives to Wunderlist, here are three (3) to-do list app alternatives that allow you to import your data from Wunderlist directly.
3 Best Free Alternative To-Do list Applications
If you’re a user of Wunderlist, it is recommended that you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to get a replacement app; so you can choose from the below list.
Microsoft To Do is the successor to Wunderlist, built by Microsoft itself based on Wunderlist's features. The To Do app got a redesign that makes it look a bit more like Wunderlist last year, with some major cosmetic changes, like a dark mode option and background color options.
Also, it features other capabilities including steps (subtasks), listing groups (folders), and file attachments, and sharing and task assignments, coupled with the ability to sync across Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows.
Microsoft To Do is available for Android and iOS as a free download and also as a web app. It requires that you sign in with your Microsoft account, but if you don't have a Microsoft account, you can also create an account with your preferred email service, including Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo mail.
2. Google Keep
Google Keep is pre-installed on almost all modern Android device, and so, it’s perfect for those who need to make the simplest of do-to lists on the go.
And it is completely free, albeit, its list-making feature is quite limited, which it makes up for with non-bloated and clean UI. Another disadvantage is that you can't import directly from Wunderlist into Google Keep.
It is most ideal for people who have just reevaluated their list-making needs or perhaps, have only recently gotten on board into the to-do lifestyle; you may have to take a look at Google Keep.
The productivity app, Todoist is helpful in managing tasks, projects and your daily goals. It is able to syncs across Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and via web and browser extensions, coupled with direct apps like Google Calendar and Dropbox integrations.
Also, you can use Todoist to delegate tasks and set goals, with daily or weekly productivity trends.
Todoist is free to download on iOS and Android, or as a web app, and you can import data from your Wunderlist lists, using Todoist's import tool. But, you'll have to authorize the data transfer, which can then move all of your projects, tasks, and files to the Todoist app.
