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!
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:
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.
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:
- Make sure you follow me…
- 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).
- 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.
