Wunderkit for iPhone

A productivity app that actually helps you work

Wunderkit helps you work. That’s what a productivity app should do, of course, but some unnecessarily bog you down in details. In contrast, Wunderkit—a free iPhone offering from 6 Wunderkinder—makes it easy to create projects and schedule tasks. And it’s better than many competing apps at recognizing the realities of the workplace.

Those realities? Well, for one, most of us rarely work alone. So Wunderkit is collaborative, letting you invite colleagues from Facebook, Twitter, or your iPhone’s contact list as participants in the “work spaces” you create for projects. (Those work spaces can be public or private — choose the former option, and Wunderkit becomes a kind of social network of its own, letting you follow or be followed by anybody else who opts not to raise the privacy shields.)

Another workplace reality? We don’t do all our work on the iPhone. The service is cloud-based, enabling you to put down your phone and organize tasks and projects from your desktop computer. By not confining your task management to a single device—as some competing apps do—the Wunderkit app becomes easier and more attractive to use.

The app mostly works well, but not always: It repeatedly was unable to connect with Facebook while I was using it, and colleagues I invited to a workspace didn’t always receive their invitations.

If those bugs can be fixed, Wunderkit will be nearly perfect. Until then, it’s merely quite good.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
