Weekend Update (Issue 1)

It has been a while since I have stayed on the regular schedule for the blog. I am sorry for that. Now that my life and day-to-day schedule has begun to normalize I can start to get back to a normal schedule again. What better way to get back to the fun stuff than adding a new segment. This is the debut of the Weekend Update. I’ll cover new apps I’m trying, shows, movies, news and more.

“New” App of the Week: Wunderlist

Wunderlist is far from a new app but it is new to me. Up until a week or so ago I was a firm believer in Todoist, which is still a good app. A coworker suggested Wunderlist would be worth a try. I have been actively using it for a week and it has been an easy transition. When you are moving to a new app that holds your professional, personal and blogging life, you want it to be as easy as possible. The different features took a little while to get used to but once I did, it was great.

There are a lot of great features in Wunderlist. It, of course, has a lot of the usual features in to-do apps; separate projects, due dates, reminders and so on. But, it also has more available for free, but you can pay for more features, it has great Mac, PC and iOS apps along with a easy to use website, and it has great personalization features. Why are the personalization features important? Well, if you are going to work on something that will be so much a part of your daily life don’t you want it to be aesthetically pleasing and something that just makes life simpler? That is the whole point of productivity apps like Wunderlist: simplicity, so you can get back to doing the things you love and don’t get bogged down in the complicated systems that can sometimes take over you life.

Wunderlist is available on iOS, Android, Mac and PC. This versatility only adds to it’s appeal. I highly recommend you give Wunderlist a try for your task management needs.
