The war for which task list manager is the best goes on. With so many options already there, and so many more options coming up everyday, it is difficult to simply categorise either of them as the best. Each has a few features and doesn’t have a few. Each has features, which are repetitive. At some point of time, all of them seem like bad copies of each other.

However, you can decide the one for you depending on what you want most. So here, we compare the three giant services of Evernote, Wunderlist, and Google Keep.

 

#1. Platform:

Wunderlist and Evernote are both compatible with iOS devices, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry and WebOS. They are both available on literally every platform. They are easily accessible because of this feature. Whereas Google Keep is not available on iOS devices, Blackberry, and Windows phones.

#2. Push Reminders

Push reminders help you get notifications even when the app is closed. This saves you from missing any task possible. While Wunderlist provides its users with this option, both Keep and Evernote lack on this front.

#3. Share

You can share your lists via email or via cloud and let your friends and family know your tasks. Wunderlist provides you with this facility.

 

#4. Geotagging

With geotagging, you can tag your photos, videos and notes according to the location. This makes it easier to organise them. This feature is available on both Keep and Evernote but can’t be found in Wunderlist.

#5. Mail the Tasks

With Wunderlist, you can email the tasks to yourself and they get added to the list, but both Evernote and Google Keep do not support this feature.

#6. Search

Evernote and Wunderlist both make looking for tasks easier by keeping a search option inbuilt whereas, Keep has no such feature and so it makes it a little tedious to find the note. Evernote also goes a notch higher by being able to search for text in photos.

 

#7. Size

For those of you who care about the size, Google Keep(2.8MB) is the smallest, then comes Wunderlist(30MB) and then is Evernote(30.8MB).

 

#8. Archive

Many of us like to archive the data for future reference and for other purposes as well. Well then, it’s good news, as Evernote and Keep both offer this feature, although Wunderlist doesn’t have it.

 

#9. Language Support

Nowadays, more often than not people are resorting to typing in their native language. Google for this reason has made Keep with a language support of 44 languages, Wunderlist is not far behind with a support of 30 languages, and Evernote comes last with a support of just 13 languages.

 

#10. Creation of an Account

If you’re not one for creating accounts just to be able to use your to do lists, then Keep is the thing for you, as both Evernote and Wunderlist require you to create one.

Unlike in Keep, you have to create accounts in both Evernote and Wunderlist

 

#11. Voice Support

Google Keep and Evernote both have voice support and you can just do things by speaking, there is no need to type. However, Wunderlist at the moment has no voice support.

 

#12. Widgets

Adding widgets to the home screen allows you to have more flexibility and to see information at a glance, without going inside the app. Evernote and Keep support this feature while Wunderlist’s widget isn’t very functional and has limited capabilities.

#13. In App Purchases

In Wunderlist we get a free option, a Wunderlist pro option and a Wunderlist business option which are both priced at $4.99/month.

In Evernote we can make in app purchases and upgrade to a higher version.

In Evernote there are two option available, free and premium($5/month)

 

To Conclude

All the task list managing apps come with their fair share of pros and cons, and we’ve enumerated them out for you here. We hope this review has helped you decide which one would be the best for you!

    Like the various aspect being explored in the article.
    But I’d like to point out an error.
    Wunderlust does have a widget, and it’s quite functional as it allows to mark tasks complete without opening the complete application.
    Please recitfy.

    The wunderlist widget for ios is not very functional as it only shows the tasks for that particular day. 

    I apologise for the error and thanks for the correction, i should have mentioned their efficiency on all platforms, and not written that it isn’t there at all.
