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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
