Best Features, Pricing, Alternatives & Verdict
Superlist wants to be your to-do list app and your team's to-do app. In this in-depth review, we will help you choose whether it is right for you. But is it worth the hype?
What is Superlist?
Superlist is a to-do list app for teams and individuals to manage tasks & notes.
What does Superlist do?
Inside Superlist, you can create tasks, notes, add media and manage lists in real-time.
Developed by many of the team who created the very successful Wunderlist, Superlist wants to be a base for your tasks for both yourself and your team. Tasks can be organized into team tasks and personal tasks with a simple switch.
Superlist offers integrations too allowing you to connect popular apps like Microsoft To-Do, Google Calendar, Gmail, Slack, Linear and even email forwarding - meaning you can use Superlist with all of these apps and bring in the most important tasks, so they aren't missed. An impressive set of features for launch, but how does it stack up in our review?
This software is designed for both teams and individuals, but you can use for both too.
Superlist Best Features
What's the best elements of Superlist during our reviews:
1. Fast & Speedy Performance
The performance, design and speed of Superlist is very good.
Everything from the interactions to the wallpapers were perfect, you can very much tell ex-Wunderlist team made this application. Everything loaded fast and this wasn't something we even expected in the beta review of this app.
Adding tasks to the today area, moving between lists, sharing things took a no time and there wasn't a mad amount of education needed to learn the application which a lot of people will like if they are overwhelmed by apps like Notion.
2. Range of Devices
You can download Superlist on a good range of devices.
To be honest, we weren't expecting Superlist to have the availability offering from day one. From day one, or at least the beta, you can download the iOS, Android, Web & macOS version which for many people is a good starting point.
There is probably plans for Windows on the list, but for a launch plan this is good.
3. Good Integrations
More to-do list apps are adding the ability to bring in tasks from other providers.
This extensive list isn't bad for the beat and there is plans to add Notion by the looks of the screenshots we've seen on social media. Superlist allows you to email forward tasks directly into your inbox and capture them using Gmail too, making it perfect for those who are on the move and want to capture everything into Superlist to process later.
All integrated apps that import tasks show the location of the import which makes it easier to get back to the original content from the Superlist task.
Some of the elements we didn't like inside of Superlist were fairly minor:
1. Project Lists
Whilst this is such a helpful feature for meeting notes, collaborating on ideas and for teams having a real-time nature to adding tasks and notes.
The one thing we found was that the notes you create inside of a list could actually get lost inside the whirlwind list sizes you might create. Obviously this might be a productivity related things, you need to organize them, but we found that it lacked the ability to highlight important notes as much as tasks prioritized.
Naturally something that might come to mind as they launch to the world.
2. Assigning Tasks
Inside of Superlist, adding tasks means you have to give them an assignee.
This was a little thing, but adding a task just as a solo user, if you wanted to assign it, you needed to add yourself to each task individually. Maybe we were being silly, but the action of assigning yourself every time could get stressful if you use as a solo user.
How much does Superlist cost?
Superlist has a generous free plan, with pricing starting from $0 per user, per month.
Team pricing begins at $12 per user, per month and all those on team get Pro included.
Verdict: Is Superlist Worth It?
Superlist was one of the best beta experiences we've ever had in all the years.
It worked super fast out the gate with a great array of features to get started with without having to wait for anything. This is good news for the Superlist launch set for 2024.
Overall Superlist is a really exciting to-do list application which works very well for solo users who want to organize their week and tasks, but equally well for teams who want to focus on task management.
Superlist is not a project management software, more a to-do list application so it might be more suitable for a team between 5-15 users for tasks, meeting notes and collaborating on projects, with killer feature being the real-time collaboration and seeing interactions. Perfect for light project management in smaller businesses.
