Wunderlist by Microsoft was a quite popular task management app for both desktop and smartphones. However, in May 2020, Microsoft decided to shut down the service to replace it with its own integrated To-Do app.

Of course, if you have imported all your content to Microsoft’s To-do app, you probably do not need to think about Wunderlist alternatives. Nevertheless, if you are someone looking for better options to Wunderlist, this list is for you.

Here, we shall take a look at a list of the best Wunderlist alternatives that you can choose to shift all your task lists, reminders, and to-do lists.

Best Wunderlist Alternatives

Even though we will be mentioning options except Microsoft’s To Do, you can still watch the video above if you decide to migrate over to Microsoft’s own To Do app.

1. Todoist

  • Free plan available
  • Premium subscription starts at $3/month
  • Supports connection with several popular apps like Dropbox
  • Task view & Board View
  • Collaboration features
  • Cross-platform support

The closest thing to Wunderlist would be Todoist. It provides a great user interface and it is easy to use on both desktop and smartphone.

You can categorize your tasks and also create sub-projects for different tasks/goals. As you can see in the screenshot above, it takes inspiration from Google’s Material design guidelines and looks good enough.

It lets you add recurring due dates, add labels, mark favorite tasks, share tasks to collaborate with team, and offers a bunch of useful features along with a board view option. As an added bonus, it also displays your productivity level with visual charts to keep track of your progress.

You can surely explore more options after you sign up – however, if you have a premium subscription, you will be able to make the most of out it on a bigger scale. Of course, if you do not need the premium features, the basic features on a free account is enough.

2. Any.do

  • Free plan available
  • Premium subscription starts at $3/month
  • Supports Google Calendar, Apple Calender, and more
  • Task view
  • Cross-platform support

Any.do is yet another popular productivity tool available across multiple platforms. As the name suggests, it is often used for making To-do lists and it is beautifully tailored to do exactly that for both beginners and power users.

While publishing this, a personal online assistant was in the beta phase which would potentially help you easily schedule appointments, look for deals, purchase products, and more. Not just limited to the idea of having a smart assistant to manage your To-do lists but having most of the essential options like Calendar integration, reminders, and a few other options makes it a good choice.

You can get started for free but to get the options like recurring due dates, WhatsApp reminders, and a few more features, you need to upgrade to a premium subscription.

3. Asana

  • Tailored for teams with tons of features
  • Free plan with essential features
  • Collaboration features
  • Cross-platform support

Asana would be one of the best alternatives to Wunderlist considering that it offers a lot of useful features for free. You get the board view, recurring due date (with some limitations), and collaboration features absolutely for free.

If you have a small team, you may not need to upgrade at all. However, with a premium subscription, you get a timeline view, more control over your team members  if collaborating, and a customizable recurring due date feature. Unless you need the features offered, Asana might prove to be overwhelming.

4. Google Tasks

google tasks
  • Suitable for smartphone users
  • Easy to integrate with Google services

If you rely on your smartphone to get things done instead of your Desktop, Google Tasks could be a great option. Especially, if you are already comfortable with the Google ecosystem of services, using Google Tasks will make things easier.

Unlike some other options here, Google Tasks is a simple tool without a lot of features. So, if you’re looking to use it for a small team, you might need to have Google Workplace subscription. In either case, if you wanted a dead simple solution to add task lists, this is one of the best you can go with.

You can find it for both Android and iOS.

5. Trello

  • Board-view is the key highlight
  • Simple and effective
  • Easy to get used to
  • Collaboration features
  • Cross-platform support

Trello is a board-view based task management platform. It is a decent Wunderlist alternative but it is inclined more towards teams or collaboration features.

A lot of small teams tend to prefer using Trello to manage their tasks and it is an effective platform that you can utilize absolutely for free. Yes, you may opt for a premium upgrade but unless you need powerful features and have a potentially bigger team, you could do a lot of things with a free account.

6. Remember The Milk

  • Plenty of integration options to automate your task reminders
  • Simple and effective
  • Limited free features

Remember The Milk is an interesting to-do app with some useful functionalities. Unlike some other options, you just get a single upgrade plan (billed annually) or you can continue using it for free.

Even though it offers a free basic plan, it may not come in very handy. So, if you prefer to have the integration with several apps, ability to connect with IFTTT/Zapier for your task reminders, the premium upgrade is the way to go to make the most out of it. You also get the feature of advance sorting and creating sub-tasks.

It is a simple yet effective to-do app that offers plenty of integration options.

7. TickTick

  • Easy to use
  • Simple and effective
  • Smart features

TickTick offers a quite similar interface when compared to Todoist. Also, you should be able to get most of the essential features on both of them. So, if you like any of them, it would be wise to carefully try both TickTick and Todist to decide what is best for you.

You get all the collaboration features, smart parsing, calendar views, track stats and several necessary features.

8. Notion

  • Free for personal use with no feature restrictions
  • Easy to use and expressive
  • Collaboration features
  • Cross-platform support

If you do not prefer options that lock some features you want behind a paywall, you might like Notion as a simple replacement to Wunderlist. Unlike others, it does not lock any features – but assigns some limits to the usage (like uploads) for personal use.

Basically, it is completely free to use for personal use. If you need to get rid of the limits, you can upgrade to the pro version. However, if you have a team, you can opt for a separate plan tailored for organizations with collaboration options and access to admin tools. Notion looks like an interesting option to go for.
