Wunderlist Alternative: Effortlessly Switch to Quire

Wunderlist Alternatives

Wunderlist has been a go-to task management software and a to-do list app for hundreds of thousands people. We understand how sad you must be when Microsoft decided to shut down Wunderlist and force you to switch to Microsoft To-Do. It’s not fair, we know. It’s frustrating, we understand. Life just cannot go your way, can it?

With Wunderlist going away in May, you have to find a better task management software. And somehow, you ended up here with Quire. We know you are sad that your favorite to-do app is now gone, but we’re secretly happy for you to explore your soon-to-be best friend - Quire! We’re here to help you replace Wunderlist with a simple yet powerful software that can walk your dreams home.

“I'm truly amazed by how it works! I'm one of the Wunderlist orphans to be, so I started a search for a new app to use both for private and professional small projects. Quire is by far the best one among some ten or more I tested! I'm really satisfied, you and your team should be proud to make one of the best products about project management and productivity!”

Easy and Fast Process to Migrate Your Projects from Wunderlist

Change can be uncomfortable, but we’ve made it easy for you! Here’s how we help you upgrade your task management software to Quire!

  1. Export your data from Wunderlist into a zip file then uncompress the folder to find a JSON file.

    Tip: You can go to Account Settings on Wunderlist, choose Account, click Create Backup and wait for the zip file to be sent to your mailbox.

  2. Create a new project at Quire.

  3. Click on the dropdown next to your new project’s name and import the uncompressed JSON file.

All of the lists from the left sidebar in Wunderlist will be treated as root tasks in Quire, and the tasks inside the lists will be treated as subtasks. If there’s a subtask in Wunderlist, it will become the sub-subtask in Quire. If you wish to treat each list from Wunderlist as a project in Quire, you can move these tasks to other projects.
