Wunderlist stops: these are good alternatives for your to-do list

On May 6 this year, the plug will be officially pulled from Wunderlist by the new owner Microsoft. The list app and site then goes offline, which means that you have to find an alternative before then. The faster you find it, the faster you can start transferring your lists. We’ve found several great list programs to do that.

To Do

Microsoft is of course not crazy: it does not just shoot a program that belongs to him without having a place where the users can go. It has developed To Do itself. It probably hopes that To Do will become what TikTok is for Musical.ly: a successor that actually does better and was developed by the same minds. It has been around for some time, but partly through the purchase of Wunderlist, Microsoft has made it look even more like that app. You can add folders and subtasks in these list apps. You can of course share your lists and assign tasks to certain people. The big advantage is not only that it looks like Wunderlist: you can import your Wunderlist tasks.



Although Trello has the disadvantage that you cannot “cross out” tasks, it is possible to delete them or drag them to a list of “completed tasks”. Trello is an app where your “cards” hang under a row with a certain title. For example: “customers to be approached”, “customers who still have a reflection period” and “customers with whom we have already progressed”. You can create a “ticket” per customer, and set tasks within that ticket (possibly with a to-do list that you can tick off). However, it is also possible to simply list ‘to do’ and give cards titles of your tasks. Trello works with handy labels and you can easily and clearly assign a task to someone’s name at the touch of a button. In addition, every step is tracked in Trello, so you can always find out who did what with a task.


Unlike Trello, Todoist is really intended for to-do lists and tasks, but it also works well in project form. You can set certain goals and see what the trends of productivity are, something that the other list apps do not show as detailed. Here too you can import your Wunderlist list, so that is a big advantage for switchers. What makes Todoist so fantastic is its simplicity. It is not Trello that often needs an explanation of five minutes upon introduction: Todoist is quite straightforward. However, if you want to make it more complex and extensive, that is always possible. However, where Todoist is a little less strong, that is in filtering and determining orders, because if you have a great need for it, we recommend To Do.



Not to be confused with TikTok: TickTick is a task management app. That means you can put a lot of lists in it. As the name suggests, it is an app that is mainly about time management. This way you can create a kind of countdown time bomb of your tasks, so you stay focused and the most productive. Especially if you are not someone who keeps a very tight timetable but simply want to have x number of tasks done somewhere that day, then TickTick can offer you a solution. What is even better is that this app keeps track of what you do more often. So you can bet that you want to be reminded every day to inject insulin, or to check a certain website. It is very useful that it keeps coming back, so that you don’t have to set a reminder yourself that you can forget.

In short, there are so many lists to use as a to do list, that checking which one to choose is a to do list task in itself. Nevertheless, it is wise to first look carefully at which help questions you have, so that you can choose the best app for your workflow based on that.
