6WK Launches Native Android Tablet App for Wunderlist 2

By David Knight |

They launched a new product before pulling it months later in favour of revamping the original – and the release of that revamp was so successful that the traffic caused server problems: It’s fair to say that life at 6Wunderkinder has been somewhat of a rollercoaster recently. But now the focus is firmly back on developing one product, and the Berlin startup has today launched an all-new native Android tablet version of the Wunderlist 2 app.

The company says the app provides a customized user experience and is optimized for use on the Google Nexus and Kindle Fire as well as other devices.

Wunderlist 2 was launched last year, just in time for Christmas, to great fanfare and generally good reviews. It focused on stable and reliable performance with new native apps across all major devices and a “supercharged server architecture.”

And the newly-released app contains new graphics and functionality created especially for Android including adapting intuitively to make the most out of larger screens. It also allows users to send, share or export any lists to other text-sharing applications installed on the device including Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and Gmail. The reverse flow of content is possible as well, such as by adding tasks to Wunderlist from a text message or email. In addition, the Wunderlist Widget has been adapted so users can assess lists directly from a device’s home screen.

6WK CEO and co-founder Christian Reber said: “We have built a truly native tablet app to give our Android community a superior, more stable and handcrafted individualized experience, regardless whether the device is a Google Nexus, or a Kindle Fire. The work goes beyond what you directly see today, and will allow us to continue to provide updates and add features on a faster, more regular basis. Our community will also experience more Android specific features, including integration with key Google services and product in the near future.”

The company is promising further updates to its applications on five platforms – iPhone, Mac, Windows, Web and Android, which are available in 23 languages – in the near future.
