It’s been a while since Wunderlist, the infamous cloud-based task management application, was shut down. Microsoft’s decision to discontinue Wunderlist in favor of its own To Do App left Wunderlist users feeling abandoned. By now, Wunderlist refugees have either switched to Microsoft To Do or adopted an alternative app to manage their to-do tasks. However, if you’re still looking for the perfect Wunderlist replacement, then maybe we can help.
With so many apps available we know it’s tough to find the right one, so we have done extensive testing of some of the most popular apps in the market. We considered their cross-platform functionality, ability to arrange and organize tasks, and their usability. Hopefully the following list will help you narrow down and zero in on the app that you are looking for.
Aided with natural language processing, TickTick is a to-do list app that enables you to access from any operating system. This state-of-the-art app is chic and classy offering you multiple features such as:
- pinned notifications

- integration of third-party calendars that allows you to check your tasks and appointments on one single screen
- organizing tasks using lists, tags and timelines

One of the simplest yet most powerful apps we have tested. eisedo is available in both mobile and web versions for people who want to access their to-do lists on the go, whether on their mobile or desktop. The dashboard is extremely user-friendly and suitable for audience from any age group, be it a student, a corporate executive or even a senior citizen.
eisedo allows you to create tasks and set their importance and urgency. The app then prioritizes your tasks automatically and sends you timely reminders. Inspired by the Eisenhower Matrix, this task manager app organizes your tasks into 4 distinct quadrants:
- Do first
- Do later
This makes it a handy tool for people who are always busy and have too many daily chores to tackle. Knowing which tasks to tackle first helps you to focus on the task that matter the most. With eisedo, task management no longer feels demanding. Premium features allow you create projects where you can add multiple tasks and sub folders, and also delegate tasks to your colleagues. Available in both free and paid versions.
An old kid on the block, Google Keep is great for people who like using a notepad that is connected with Google Drive. This tool allows you to add photos, checklists, and voice notes apart from texts. All your data is saved on the cloud offering maximum security. However, unlike any other to-do list apps, Google Keep doesn’t offer a wide variety of features but the brand name itself may just be enough to tempt user interest.
Todoist has developed some great features over the years. Some of them are:
- Organizing tasks by date
- Color coding tasks as per your preference
- Creating multiple sub tasks or sub projects under projects
- Categorizing each tasks
- Adding new tasks in the inbox and labeling them
The premium version offers to its users push notifications, email reminders, labels and filters.
A pretty looking app, Things or now known as Things 3, is a next gen task manager app that is intuitive and elegant. Once you set the deadlines to each task manually, you can organize your tasks and lists accordingly. The app also has full Apple Watch Support. However, many users find it quite complex to handle. If you are not comfortable with complex tools, stick to more user friendly-tools like eisedo.
