Task management isn't usually meant to be enjoyable, but that doesn't mean it can't be elegant. That's the thought behind Wunderlist's latest version that brings the app up to speed with Lollipop — well, slightly — with some added functionality to boot.
The app has received a major update on all of its supported platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows, Chrome, Mac) to include list folder support. That should help you clean your sidebar, group similar lists together, and keep the ones that matter the most out in plain view.
The second change, and the most relevant for us here, is the redesign of the Android app. Obviously, there's a FAB, because what would Material be without a FAB? When tapped, it triggers a beautiful animation that divides it into two buttons for adding a new task or a new list. Bright colors have been sprinkled inside the app as well, with ripples and animations to complement the lot.
The problem though remains that most of Wunderlist's UI is more reminiscent of iOS than of Android. The app's thin iconography and the floating cards with gradients on top of seemingly unnecessary (and nearly invisible) image backgrounds both convey an image of iOS 7. If it weren't for the transparent status bar and the Android navigation bar on the bottom of those screenshots, I'd have to do a double take to make sure I wasn't browsing the App Store.
Wunderlist is free to try so you can download it from the widget below and judge for yourself. And if the update hasn't gone live for you yet, you can grab it from APK Mirror in the source links.
