Wunderlist 3 is a faster, slicker, more collaboration-friendly iteration of the popular productivity app. But it’s also the first step in a strategic shift for Berlin’s 6Wunderkinder.
Now with big backing from Dropbox and Evernote funder Sequoia Capital — and with VC legend Michael Moritz on the 6Wunderkinder board — task-management app Wunderlist should soon become more lightweight and stable, and more widely available.
The team-oriented version of the Wunderlist task manager has finally arrived for the iPhone, iPad, OS X and the web. Android and Windows versions will follow in a week’s time.
What was once a simple task-management service is now starting to expand in functionality. The new Add to Wunderlist browser extension makes the service stickier… and a bit more of a rival to Evernote.
Sometimes one company’s failures can provide valuable lessons for other startups. That’s definitely the case with a major strategy shift from productivity upstart 6Wunderkinder, which we can reveal.
Productivity startup 6Wunderkinder made a big noise on the Berlin scene when it launched, but it’s been quiet for a few months. Now CEO Christian Reber explains why other German startups should follow suit and focus on their product — and why he’s worried about Windows 8.
