Create And Manage Task Lists On Windows 8: Wunderlist

Wunderlist is a free app for Windows 8 and 8.1 which allows you to create and manage task lists on your device. In the app, you can create lists which can be viewed by users with other email ids or you can create lists for your personal use. In the app when you create a list, you will be able to add tasks to the same by adding the task name in the text field at the top which is displayed when you click on the list name at the left pane, and then by pressing the enter key when you have entered the name of the task. You can also prepare grocery lists etc. instead of task lists, and once you have completed an item on the list, simply access the list and click on the check box next to the item to mark the item as complete.

Wunderlist is available for free from the Windows App Store.
