Wunderkit Pro (90 days beta) invites

I just got invited for a Wunderkit Pro Beta account (which lasts for 90 days before you get downgraded to a free account, no details on pricing just yet). Time for a short review and invites!


First impression

Well, it certainly looks wonderful and just like Wunderlist. Not a surprise since they’re both build by 6wunderkinder from Berlin. The interface looks friendly and clean (but you do have to like ‘wooden’ backgrounds). And where Wunderlist is meant as ‘just’ a task management/ GTD system, Wunderkit is meant as a broader system for creating, organizing and accomplishing ‘things’. You can create workspaces (projects) where you can add tasks, notes and communicate about the project with team members. Projects can be public so you can publish public updates to a project. It kinda looks like a Twitter stream for projects which others can follow and you can also post public personal tweets eh… updates. Not sure anybody is waiting for yet another system that does that, but that’s what everyone thought of Twitter too when that started so we’ll see how that’s going. You can also view/ join /follow other public projects and comment on those.

Here’s the official walkthrough of the system:

Wunderlist Plus

I really don’t see me using a system like this and the way it currently works I don’t really see the added value for most people/projects. It doesn’t add that much value to Wunderlist (why give it another name? It’s just Wunderlist Plus IMHO). I know social is hot these days, but I don’t see the added value for (most) projects to have such a heavy social component. But if you already use and love Wunderlist, I bet this will be a very nice upgrade for you, especially if you want to use it with teams.


Most of my tasks and todo’s follow from the conversations I have in my e-mail. And I need to follow-up on most via e-mal. So if you want me to use a task management / GTD system, I personally require a (tight) integration with my e-mail system (Gmail in my case). But that isn’t available and I’m not going to copy/paste tasks and e-mails. In my case a deal-breaker: if a new GTD system wants me into a switch, it has to have a tight Gmail integration. And I don’t mean the ability to foward e-mails to a certain e-mail adres to create tasks. That’s not going to cut it. Another integration that would help Wunderkit, is to sync the Notes section with Evernote (I don’t need anóther notes program). For many projects filesharing is important too so a Dropbox integration would als help with that.
I think that to be a succes, a GTD system should help me to improve my curent workflow. Not introduce a complete new one.

Recurring subtasks

To end the review with a positive: Amongst the new features sub-tasks (break larger tasks down into subtasks) and recurring tasks. Something I see missing in most (and my current) GTD system.

Get in!

If you’re (still) interested :), feel free to give it a try! I just got a Wunderkit Pro Beta account which means I can send others an invite. Just like I did previously with invites to Quora (I invited almost 1000 people there) and Google+ I started handing them out here on my blog.

If you’d like to give Wunderkit Pro a try too, here’s what you can do:

  1. Make sure you follow me…
  2. Place a comment bellow including the e-mail address you want to receive the invite on. I’ll do my best to invite you to Wunderkit within 48 hours (it’s a manual process).
  3. Be happy with you new Wunderkit Plus Beta account :)

Do note that the Wunderkit Plus account only lasts for 90 days. After that you’ll be automatically downgraded to a free account. I don’t see any information on the Wunderkit website that shows what the Plus pricing will be.

PS: if you are wondering: I’m currently using ActiveInbox as a GTD system.
