Every week or two I’ll browse through the app categories on the Mac App Store to see what’s new, to catch a trend, and sometimes just to see if my tastes in apps mirrors that of other Mac users.
This weekend I dug through the Productivity app category and noticed something interesting. The to four apps in the free section were from Apple. #1 was OS X Mavericks (a no brainer; every Mac user with a modern Mac gets the new OS for free), followed by Keynote, Pages, and Numbers.
The first non-Apple app in the Top 10 is a favorite at #5 (Apple has five of the top 10). It’s Wunderlist, an elegant and free todo and task list manager with more than merely the basic features.
Using Wunderlist is straightforward. Create a todo item or a task. Setup recurring tasks and subtasks with due dates, notifications, and reminders.
Wunderlist is iDevice friendly, too, and syncs your todo items and tasks between devices and that includes Android devices and Windows PCs. There’s not much to not like with the free version.
The Pro version of Wunderlist is a different animal, and comes with more capability but at a price. Not a single price. A monthly price. What you get might be worth the extra expense– attach files, assign tasks to others, secure data and layers of security, email todo items, and more– all good features for teams.
At almost $60 a year for the Pro version, many Mac users are likely to opt for the capable but free regular version.
