Previously only available for the PC and Mac, the ever-popular Wunderlist has made its debut on the iOS platform.
Like the desktop version, the mobile edition offers a similar interface, with items arranged in the form of lists. These essentially serve as categories that are used to group together tasks of a similar nature, such as groceries to pick up, jobs to apply for or things to do at work.
For high-priority tasks, a small-star icon to the left of the item lets you add it to a special list, accessible via a tab on the home screen. This doesn't remove a task from its original list. It merely repeats the entry under the "starred" tab for easy access. Similarly, a task assigned a specific due date appears under the "today" tab once that day arrives. When it passes, the item is moved to the "overdue" tab.
Once completed, tasks can then be added to an archive of completed items by clicking a check-box.
Wunderlist is fully integrated with its desktop counterpart and also offers live syncing.
For those looking for a task manager with multimedia support, this might not be the right choice. But if you're in the market for a simple, yet sufficiently customisable text-based system, Wunderlist is quite the contender.
