8 Wunderlist Alternatives to Consider Before the Service Shuts Down
Wunderlist, the beloved task management app, will be shut down on May 6th, 2020. So the hunt for Wunderlist alternatives begins.
The 2013 App of the Year Award winner will soon fade into oblivion, and its users are to find new alternatives to keep track of their tasks.
For most Wunderlist users, this will not be a particularly difficult choice, since there are many good options out there to choose from.
On the other hand, users who have been integrating Wunderlist into their workflows need a better picture of the alternatives. For them, it's not just about lists and tasks, but about what the alternatives are capable of doing in the greater scheme of workflows.
So, if you are part of this group and have been wondering about apps to replace your Wunderlist integrations, look no further: here's our selection.
If task management is the name of the game, ClickUp should rank high on your list. This tool makes task management seamless and engaging. In addition, it's very integration-friendly, easy to use, and scary good.

To Do is the app Microsoft recommends to current Wunderlist users to adopt once the latter gets shut down. Needless to say, Wunderlist is Microsoft's property as well, which makes the transition from one to another a natural goal for the Seattle-based company.
To Do stands out as a simple app that delivers on basic task management premises, such as list-keeping and task-tracking. Not the brightest product of the bunch, but not a bad choice either!

Importing your Wunderlist tasks into Trello, Todoist, and ClickUp
Some Wunderlist users will definitely need to mirror their current Wunderlist setup into a new app before Wunderlist shuts down. In other words, a full-fledged migration of lists and tasks will be on the table -- if it isn't already.
This can be complicated and time-consuming, but we have a solution for you, and it's called automation.
The Make team has developed three templates that automate the migration of tasks from Wunderlist into other apps. Take a look:
ClickUp: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to ClickUp
Todoist: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to Todoist
Trello: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to a new Trello board
These templates are a bit more complicated to implement, but there's more to gain as well: the more lists and tasks you have on Wunderlist, the more you will get from the templates.
Also, here are the templates for Asana, Wrike, Google Tasks, and Plutio, just in case:
Plutio: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to Plutio
Wrike: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to Wrike
Asana: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to Asana
Google Tasks: Import your lists, tasks, and subtasks from Wunderlist to Google Tasks
Migrating from Wunderlist shouldn't be hard if you know your options. The most important question you'll have to answer is the following:
What will you be using your next task management app for?
If you're into task management to keep your schedule tidy, simpler apps like Trello, Todoist and Google Tasks will cover your needs. If otherwise, you want to increase your company and/or team productivity, products like ClickUp, Asana, and Wrike stand out like the logical choices.
Finding the right Wunderlist alternative shouldn't be too hard if you start with that question. After that, it will be a matter of finding out what feels better in terms of usability, integrations, and features.
To conclude, it's a bit sad to see an app like Wunderlist shutting down. Not only it was one good product, but it also managed to cater to the needs of millions of users effectively.
In any case, it's been one hell of a ride - respect goes to the teams that made Wunderlist a great product, and by extension, our lives easier.
