Wunderlist is my new favorite app. Being a little type-A, I organize all the apps on my iPhone into tidy folders, but Wunderlist is used so often that it has a special place on the home screen. As a byproduct of my type-A-ness (new word?) I am a total list lover. Full disclosure: I will sometimes add something I've already done to my list, just for the satisfaction of checking it off. I love to make lists on beautiful paper, but the reality is that on the road I usually lose track of that kind of thing.
I marginally used the reminder app on my phone, but for some reason I didn't find myself using it very often. Wunderlist, on the other hand, I use almost daily. It allows you to create multiple lists, each with their own tasks. When you complete a task, you still get the satisfaction of checking it off and seeing it listed as completed. You can create notes regarding tasks, set reminders, and share lists with others. The app syncs across your devices, which is really great for things like shopping lists I want to make on my laptop, but access on my phone when I get to the store. You can also choose from a few different themes to customize it and make it all pretty. I've been using it to organize blog post ideas, create shopping lists, organize meal options (and check them off when we've eaten them), and remind myself of things that need to get done while we're traveling. It's been really convenient to use, it's intuitive, and it's attractive. Wunderlist is available to download on iPhone, Android, iPad, Windows, and Mac OSX. Lately I feel like I have a million things to keep track of, and a serious case of "mom brain". Wunderlist has been super helpful in keeping track of things I would surely otherwise forget.
Are you a list lover like I am? Any other helpful apps I might be missing out on? I'd highly recommend checking out Wunderlist if you're looking for a list app!
Wunderlist has never heard of me and is not a sponsor of this post. I just love lists, for real.
