One app to rule them all

2018-02-06

Pros

Easy and intuitive UI Great functionality (subtasks, tracking, commenting,calendar,todays to-dos...etc) Unbelievably fast even after continuous usage Reliable

Cons

The only one thing I am expecting is - better synchronization options with other apps (calendars, to-do programs like Todoist and Wunderlist... etc.)

Nice and simple UI, ideal for not too complex projects, very easy to use, very fast and responsive

2018-03-21

Pros

Think Wunderlist on steroids with a hybrid Trello style Kanban board view.

Cons

It definitely is not suitable for bigger marketing agencies, although they claim that this is one of their target customers. Why? There is no way to create customers in Asana, add finished tasks to invoices or something like this. The only workaround is the excessive use of custom fields and reports which really isn't all that intuitive. Oh and there is no GANTT view available so it's almost impossible to create a meaningful bird's eye view of a project with dozens or even hundreds of tasks.

The BEST team / task organizational software out there.

2018-07-10

Pros

I've used Wunderlist, Jira, Teamwork, Trello, and while they're all providing something useful, I feel like Asana provides all that and more.

Cons

I can't even mention any cons. Whatever issues I've had, I went to their forum and posted it there. All ideas are reviewed and responded to.

Team Gamechanger

2018-03-26

Pros

I used Evernote for everything, the rest of us were a mix of marking emails unread, Wunderlist, blah blah.

Cons

- can only assign tasks to one person, multiple (rather than copy) would be better for our calendar as we use time blocking and multi-person tasks add an extra step when both team members have to check off complete - nothing else right now, still only a month in, haven't explored all use cases yet

A Step Away From Being The Best

2018-08-10

We have felt a huge and increasing need for something like Asana and couldn't find the right fit for a fair price. Asana has been the closest we've found to what we are looking for. We can add sub-contractors on individual projects and assign them tasks without having to pay an arm and a leg. This platform would be dynamite with a couple additional features and small changes, but regardless, it has still been of great benefit to us. It is simple enough (compared to complex tools like Bitrix24) but dynamic enough (compared to simple tools like Trello) to be our main work space hub. Because we are used to using free and unlimited tools (like Bitrix24 and Trello), we like that Asana is an affordable solution. We are grateful for all of the benefit it has added to our company!

Pros

To create a task list, you must create a new project, so we have a unique "project" for each employee, simply as a way of putting their personal to do list in Asana, instead of having a separate platform (like Wunderlist) for general tasks.

Cons

Asana allows you to chat around any project, however, the notifications for new messages do not get your attention! You have to be in Asana or email no-stop to realize someone has written you. This makes the conversation/chat element near useless for us. We have to put our messages in Asana (so we can keep all project information in one place) but then notify the associated colleague in What's App that they have a pending and time sensitive message in Asana. This is frustrating! There are a handful of other elements that make this platform less than it could be. When you add a task with a due date and due time, you will not receive an overt chime or pop-up notification at the due time. Again, you must be constantly checking email or Asana... very inefficient with numerous projects going at once and for employees with lots of emails coming in throughout the day. Additionally, you cannot designate a default "assign to" person for a particular task/project list. These issues have been brought up by many Asana users and even after lots of time passing, there has not been real resolution to these frustrating elements.

Great for managing simple tasks

2018-08-30

Pros

it's practical, you just need to write the note and that's it, there's the task! has legal features like alarm, to remember when you have to perform a certain task!

Cons

does not reach the level of complexity of the asana or trello, where it is possible to manage teams .. they lack visually intuitive functionalities yet ...

The "Bing" of Task Management Softwares

2019-03-21

I deleted Wunderlist from my iPhone pretty quickly after installing it. I realized it wouldn't have the features I or my team needs to successfully collab on long-term projects.

Pros

It lets you keep track of tasks but not with as great as functionality as task management software like Evernote, Asana or Trello.

Cons

There are many functionalities missing that a business person and/or entrepreneur need to operate daily. It's not ideal for team collaboration.

"Average" To-Do list

2018-09-24

Pros

The Software is great for a to do list, I actually used it some years ago. Very nice design by the way.

Cons

It does not offer enough functionality to really organise your work, I would like to see a similar approach like Asana, however since these both do not cover the same idea, I would like to at least have a calendar function.

Why I keep going back to Wunderlist

2019-03-18

I have tried many other productivity apps on the market (to doist, trello, asana) but have always gone back to Wunderlist.

Pros

Simply the best list keeper on the market. Hierarchical structure is folders, lists, 'to do' and subtasks. Each 'to do' has it's own text box. Files (pdf, jpeg etc) can be uploaded to each 'to do'. Each 'to do' also allows a date due to be set, and a reminder made. Data syncs effortlessly and quickly between desktop and mobile apps. It is extremely stable. Graphics, you can change the background image and on a mobile you can add emojis to each list and 'to do'. Lists can be shared with others via email. The paid version allows more functionality.

Cons

Wunderlist was sold to Microsoft in 2015. In 2017 Microsoft announced that the app would be closed down and replaced with a very weak, insipid and badly designed product called 'To Do'. So far, that has yet to eventuate. There is currently no clear information for users on the future of Wunderlist. Personally I think Microsoft will face a big backlash if this product is actually shut down. Wunderlist had over 13 million users in 2015.

Wunderlist is my #1 productivity tool for staying on top of my work.

2018-07-04

I use Wunderlist to manage day-to-day business activities. Nothing beats the simplicity of a checklist. It's great for freelancers or small business owners who want to manage projects and activities with ease.

Pros

I've tried Asana, Basecamp, and Trello but I prefer the simplicity of Wunderlist.

Cons

There really aren't many cons. The power of this tool is in the simplicity. If I were to add features, they would be integrations with third party tools.

Wunderlist is the "grocery list app" of the 21st century, and not much more.

2018-06-15

Pros

Wunderlist is so incredibly easy to use. My wife uses it all the time for her grocery runs. I think they might even have a desktop version, but honestly I haven't ever seen her use it. If you need the most basic "box checking" app on the market, this is the one you want.

Cons

I've used more robust systems like Basecamp, Asana, and Trello and have loved all of them - but Wunderlist just straight falls flat if you're trying to use it for business.
