We love you, Wunderlist.
And your 2 million users too!
We couldn’t be more excited for Wunderlist to have reached 2 million users. To show our appreciation, we’ve decided to sit down and write our task manager a little love letter.
Dear Wunderlist… You did it! You’ve reached 2 million users! We can’t believe that you’re all grown up, reaching your second million in almost half the time it took you to get the first. We could fill the Olympic Stadium here in Berlin almost 26 times with all those people.
We know that you’re working hard helping hundreds of thousands of people organize themselves every day, and that you handle around 2.1 million tasks per week. Way to go!
We’ve had some wild times together, Wunderlist. Remember that time we partied in Paris for LeWeb? Eric still doesn’t know how he got on top of the Arc de Triomphe. You’ve taken us to every single continent (if you don’t count Antarctica) including some pretty exotic places: Laos, New Zealand, India, Thailand, Peru, Iran, and more. While you live in Germany, most of your fans aren’t from here. But then again, you’ve always been a good traveler having learned 30 different languages.
We couldn’t be more proud of you, Wunderlist. We wouldn’t be here, if it wasn’t for you.
Ok, ok. We know you’re worried about this new Wunderkit kid in town. You’re used to getting a lot of attention, and now it seems like this new guy is soaking up all the limelight. When Wunderkit has a problem, we rush to his aid. When Wunderkit needs an improvement, we work late nights to give it to him. Maybe you think we’ve started to lose sight of our old pal, Wunderlist.
Well, that just isn’t true. Wunderkit is new to this world, and he needs help getting on his feet. Wunderlist, you’ve been the rock that we’ve been able to rely on, and we need you to be that rock now more than ever. We know you need attention too. You’ve probably been asking yourself: why is my sync not quite as reliable as it used to be? Why does Wunderkit get recurring tasks? Why won’t Matt make anymore awesome videos about me?!
So Wunderlist, we’d like to reaffirm our commitment to you. Over the coming year we’re going to make sure you get the attention you deserve. We’ll be rebuilding you from the ground up, making sure that you run faster, lighter and better than you ever have before. We’ll even be able to get you those new features you’ve ben dying to have. And of course, you won’t lose any of those sexy good looks (by the way Windows Phone 7 said she found you very attractive. Hopefully Blackberry or any other device doesn’t get jealous).
Wunderlist, we’ve put a lot of love and a lot of work into you, and we’re not about to stop. We need more people to help get you what you deserve, but we’re committed to doing it. Wunderkit may be the new kid in town, but we’ll never forget who our first love was.
With lots of love,
