The 5 best Android and iOS apps of summer 2015

James A. Martin | June 29, 2015
Every few months, I look back at the apps I recently reviewed and ask myself a few questions: Which of the apps have I used at least semi-regularly since my review? Which ones would I recommend to a friend? And which ones stand a good chance of being around for a while? (R.I.P., Circa News, one of my previous "best of" winners).

The wonderful Wunderlist

Wunderlist, a to-do list management app recently acquired by Microsoft, is among a select few apps that, after I tested it for review, I continue to use on a daily basis.

Wunderlist is everywhere: Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows 8, Mac, Chromebook and Amazon's Appstore. You can also access and add to your Wunderlists via the company's website or by installing browser plug-ins.

Sharing to-do lists is painless, and you can assign tasks to the people with whom you share. You can group lists into folders, too, by dragging one list onto another.

There are approximately 10 billion to-do list apps available today, and many of them work well. Apps such as Evernote and Trello let you create lists and do other things, too. However, Wunderlist is attractively designed and, unlike some to-do list and project management apps, the free version is more than suitable for the average user. (The $5-per-month paid version gives you an unlimited amount of to-dos per list and the ability to break lists into an unlimited number of subtasks, among other features.)
