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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
