Going downhill big time...
on June 25, 2014
My wife & I have been using Wunderlist for a long time, and it just keeps getting worse. We share lists (Shopping, Movies to Watch, etc.) and use the app on multiple platforms (Kindle, Android Phones, Windows PC).
Our dissatisfaction is based on several problems... First, the sync feature, which they have tried to "fix" on several occasion, just keeps going from bad to worse. To "fix" an out of sync device, we have had to: stop & restart the app (rarely works), sign out & sign in (sometimes works), uninstall & reinstall the app (a real pain, but has always worked in the past... and now won't "fix" an install on a Kindle). Second, while the developers provide methods for feedback, they are completely unresponsive... on the feedback webpage, the most requested feature was that the "completed" portion of a list sort in the same manner as the rest of the list (i.e. keep active/completed separate, but sort each the same... alpha, date, etc.). Despite the many, many requests to address this... so far, nothing. Finally, the difference in app features is disconcerting... for example, both the Kindle & PC versions have a search feature (which helps to find an item, particularly on a relatively long list of completed/bought shopping list items), and the Android Phone version has no search capabilities at all. Why? Certainly Android phones support a search feature. And, with the lack of sorting capability, the combination is terrible for the utility of the app.
There are better "list" apps out there... they just don't yet fully support syncing shared lists across multiple accounts & platforms. But, those developers are at least working on improving their apps. And when they do, goodbye Wunderlist, forever.
