No Doubt: Why Wunderlist is the Very Best iPhone (iOS) Todo List App

There is no shortage of full-featured, polished todo list apps for iOS: Todoist, Any.do, Clear, Due, Things and even Evernote are all popular choices. And so it Wunderlist, the best todo list app for the iPhone (and even for Macs) in my humble opinion.

Let me get this out of the way right away: I’m not a todo list guy. I generally hate over organization and prefer to keep things lean and mean. But with my current workload there’s absolutely no way I can survive without some sort of game plan for getting things I want and need to get done, done.

At the moment I use a variety of awesome productivity apps to power through my workload. Evernote for retaining important information, Apple’s native iOS Reminders app for making quick reminders, Streaks for ensuring I hit important daily goals, Timepage for my Calendar and Drafts for frictionless (quick) writing. These represent 5 of my 6 main productivity apps — all of which I heavily rely on in different contexts and all of which sit at the top of my iPhone’s home screen since I deem them the most important to my workflow. But in the coveted upper left hand (anchor) position on my home screen sits Wunderlist.

There are many things to love about Wunderlist (I guess enough people thought the same thing consider Microsoft scooped it up not long ago).

To me, Wunderlist is functional without overdoing it. There’s a very nice balance of power and restraint.

So if you’re looking for the very best todo list app out there, I’d say give Wunderlist a try — especially because it’s free to do so. I think you’ll like what you find.
