When we talk about to-do lists applications, we realize that the market is pretty much full of it. If you ever get the chance to survey the Mac application market, you may realize that the digital sphere have multiple to-do list applications. However, none stands parallel with the undefeated giant, Wunderlist. Wunderlist is the perfect To-Do list application for your Mac device which not only acknowledges your day to day routine tasks but also help you organize them in a commendable fashion.

What Amazing Features Makes Wunderlist Standout Among Competitors?

Wondering how Wunderlist is considered an amazing To-Do list application? Today, I am going to discuss some of the most amazing feature that Wunderlist offer its customers and make it a standalone application for all.

So without much further Ado, let’s delve

Tag Prioritization of Tasks

With Wunderlist, you can easily prioritize your tasks using hashtags. You can select a number of tags to create priority of your tasks. For instance, #1, #2, #3, or you can label it as #A, #B, #C. The choice is yours, to set their priority simply arrange them in alphabetical order. You can also create specific hashtags such as #Now, #Later, #Important and so on. And instead of arranging them alphabetically, simply select the required hashtag and it will display all the tasks assigned to it. For example, Select #Important and Wunderlist will display all tasks saved as #Important.

Organize To-Dos as you Type

Now this feature really comes in handy when you are working with a number of team members. First of all, if you want to prioritize your To-dos all you have to do is add a (*) before you type in your task. You can also acknowledge team members and assign them various tasks by simply using the @ add-on. For example, you want James to make calls at 2 P.M all you have to do is add the task to your Wunderlist with @James and he will be notified. Make sure he is using Wunderlist too!

Refine Mac's Quick Add & Search Functionality

Wunderlist enables users to add a Quick Add and Search functionality even when you are not using the application itself. Assume that you are using a different app and you want to make a quick To-do task, with Wunderlist on your Mac device, all you ever have to do is hit (CTRL+ALT+W). It will open up a type bar with a magnifying glass providing you a number of options to tweak around with such as /me, /today, /tomorrow to assign person or set priority of the task you just created.

Learn Your Way Around Shortcuts

Assuming that you are not much of a big fan of using the mouse and you specifically rely on navigating around your routine tasks using a keyboard then Wunderlist is just the tool you may ever need. You can CTRL/CMD+D to tick off your to-do, CTRL/CMD+N to set yourself a new to-do and CTRL/CMD+L to start a new list. These are just some of the many that are commonly used; however, you can navigate to the settings option and get acquainted with more of such shortcuts.

Oops! List Deleted, Don’t Worry! Restore it.
