Wunderlist 3 Adds Real-Time Sync, Public Lists, and a New Interface

Web/Android/iOS/Mac/Chrome: Wunderlist is already one of our favourite to-do apps, and today it just got better. Wunderlist 3 brings speed improvements, real-time syncing across devices, public to-do lists you can share with the web, a Do Not Disturb mode and an updated UI.

The interface improvements are minimal, but they are helpful. It's easier to create new lists; navigate lists and to-dos; add subtasks, notes or voice notes on existing tasks; and add comments to the to-dos on your lists. There are also new backgrounds to choose from.

The new Public Lists let you create to-do lists you can share with others without giving them access to your Wunderlist account (or forcing them to sign up for their own.) The new version has made comments and conversations -- previously a Pro-only feature -- free to all users, so if you do make a list public, you can get comments on them from others.

Real-time syncing is a very useful upgrade, and should hopefully resolve some of the syncing issues that Wunderlist has experienced in the past. The new Do Not Disturb mode silences annoying notifications so you can single-task and focus on what you're working on, or put the phone down while you relax or sleep.

On the mobile side of things, the Android and iOS apps have been rebuilt for speed, and also feature a new "home" screen that gets you to your to-dos faster. Both now offer search and to-do tagging so you can quickly jump to specific to-dos without scrolling through lists.

Wunderlist 3 is available now on the web, and for Android, iOS, Mac and Chrome OS devices. Updated Windows and Windows Phone apps are on the way soon.

    A rather glaring omission in your article -- no support for Windows 7. Not just for the moment -- ever (according to their Facebook post comments).

    I'd jumped ship to Todoist a while ago, and was waiting on this to see if it was worth returning. Nup.

    Lifehacker seems to have continuing preference for Wunderlist, whereas for me Todoist is a superior task manager. It is much better integrated into the web, with easy ways to link tasks to websites and emails.
