Ripe for the Picking – Wunderlist for BlackBerry now available

posted January 24th 2012

Another day, another Wunderlist-supported device! It’s no secret that we’re on a mission to put our adored task manager in everyone’s hands, regardless of what device you’re using. Today we’re thrilled to announce Wunderlist for Blackberry, something that’s long been requested by some of you.

This release follows support for Linux, and crowns Wunderlist for Blackberry the 9th member of the family. In anyone’s eyes that’s one helluva big family, and we’re getting closer to our goal of supporting every major device and OS out there. So, what’s the story?

Planting the seed

As hinted by our blog post title, and following on from our unicorn story here, Wunderlist for Blackberry was hand picked from the forest of productivity – amongst the prioritize and due date trees. Ok it wasn’t, but I’m sure our developers imagine this stuff on their quest for code.

Blackberry was an obvious choice for us. Similar to our Linux release, we were astonished that some of you had tried formulating your own Wunderlist for Blackberry version. After making it official and transferring everything you know and love about Wunderlist over to the device, we were ready to let some of you have a taste. We handed out some special beta invites a little over 3 weeks ago, and we were very pleased with the feedback.

The specifics

You’ll be pleased to know that Wunderlist runs on Blackberry devices sporting OS 5 or higher. If you’re using a Bold or Curve, you’ll need an SD card equipped. It supports touch and non-touch devices, so we’ve got you covered whether you’re into tapping or clicking. To grab your copy now, load up Blackberry App World on your Blackberry device and search for ‘Wunderlist’. Alternatively, you can use this link. Simple!

We hope you enjoy the new release. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at support@wunderlist.com. We’d really love your feedback, so get busy and leave some comments! Love, Matthew.

CrackBerry Q & A

How did you find the process of porting your application over to the BlackBerry Platform?

We just started at the end of last year and the development process was extremely fast. We had to rethink some UI elements, but i'm really happy with the outcome. And it still feels like Wunderlist.

What kind of issues did you run into?

There wasn't a single problem during the development :)

With the changes, how does Wunderlist for BlackBerry differ from other platforms?

Basically it's almost the same like the iPhone and Android version, because we try to make the user Experience seamless across all platforms. The only difference is probably that you can navigate through the app without touching the screen.

What made you decide upon adding support for BlackBerry smartphones?

Wunderlist is supposed to be a cross-platform task-manager and the Blackberry version was just a matter of time. And although Blackberry market shares are decreasing it's still big in some parts of the world.

Can we look forward to seeing Wunderlist on the BlackBerry 10 software?

Definitely.

Any chance of seeing Wunderlist on the BlackBerry PlayBook?

Yes, in the future. Cheers!

Exactly what I was looking for today. The back up is a huge plus. Was using lister, had to switch phone and all my data was gone.

Thanks Adam!!!!

how does this differ from Evernote? Evernote does run on the BB Notebook, which I'm using. Is Wunderlist different? Better?

Having the same issue. It keeps disconnecting from BIS in the process... If this app does not work with BIS then it it defeats the purpose as I will not be able to receive any BBM's or emails while this app is open.

Pity, I really wanted to give this app a go. I shall refrain from rating the app as of now.

I'm really sorry for these problems. It works perfectly on our test devices connected with BIS and 3G. We're right now trying to figure out the problem. For now logging in via Wifi should work.

Eric, 6Wunderkinder.

Could you both please check, if you granted all necessary permissions connecting via 3G for Wunderlist?

Cheers, Eric.

No it's ok, please, we prefer a review written by people who type 'write' instead of 'right'.

This app really needs keyboard shortcuts to be useful. Sure it's pretty, but it takes too long to do anything. App developers need to understand that blackberry users expect efficiency, tapping tasks, and always having to use the menu to delete items, takes far too much time. They should look at Lister for an example of efficiency done right.

+1 for autotext/word substitution support.

This is an excellent app, nice UI, simple and well laid out and sync is killer but if I am going to use this with any kind of regularity it just has to support autotext/word substitution. So please, add it.

I'd love it on PB aswell :) Also, Conqu has a version you can download on your PC, and it all syncs together with your PB, just an idea.

The guys at 6Wunderkinder are amazingly helpful. They respond within a few minutes (at it's latest a few hours, because of time zones) and are being responsive towards the customers.

Their Facebook page is something you definitely should look at. I asked a question there regarding Wunderlist and got a reply within no time.

THIS is customer service. It's a free app, but still they take the time to listen and to reply. Keep up the good work.

Same problem here. Error on the 3G (using 9900). Also, I fully support a playbook version. Conqu is OK for now, but can not cover the whole ecosystem (mobile,pc,tablet...). Great work though!

Finally i found the app i was looking for. However i cannot sync over BIS, only with WIFI on.
If you solve this problem, for me is the app of the year!!

yes, i have the service book 'ippp for BIBS'. is this the one?
i'm from portugal and i don't know if the problem is with my network, how can i know?

I downloaded earlier. Kept giving me error message when registering.
I registered manually on the website via the browser, and succeeded.
However, when I went back to the app to log-in, it still gave me the same error message.
I sent an email feedback via appworld but have not received any response. Oh well...

I was really looking forward to the app's features, but it seems I'm going to have to wait until things get fixed.

Hope the developers fix the bug soon.

Please read the comments above :)

We're working on fixing that problem. For now it should work fine via Wifi.

thanks for answering our questions for promptly eric. looking forward to using this once its fixed.

I love this app. I've already made a switch from BB Tasks to this app. It has many advantages over Tasks:
1. You start with categories of lists (I have Inbox, Groceries and Family)
2. Adding additional todos involves less key presses than with BB Tasks
3. my lists are automagically categorized

There's a minor bug with it: When auto sync is turned off, the app should try to sync at startup.
The application will still start with your todo's but you'll get an error stating it couldn't sync.
I don't have data and most of the time will not be connected to Wifi, when I go to start the application, it get the error a second later.

Im using BIS connection and the reminder feature have problem. There are no reminders althougth i have set up it in the task. Can anyone help me?

Thanks,
