The update to Wunderlist 2 seems to leave Linux users behind. Do you plan to have a Linux version soon? Of course we can always manage with the web interface, but it's not as convenient as a standalone app and besides you cannot use the web interface when offline.
Many thanks in advance
So far, we don’t plan a Linux version of Wunderlist 2, but I recommend you to use the highly responsive web app, that is fully functional and you can use it fully offline. As soon as our severs are up and running again (we’re working on it giving our best), it should run very good. I hope you’ll love it.
Best from Berlin,
Yep, once we brought everything back up and our servers are running smoothely old Wunderlist 1 clients will be able to sync with the new ones.
All the best from Berlin,
Once reached, it’ll also work offline and queue your sync requests until you’re online again.
All the best from Berlin,
what is missing in the web interface that makes it not an option for you?
Best regards from Berlin,
You can still use the current Linux version of Wunderlist 1. Alternatively please try the web app on www.wunderlist.com. A new update for the Linux app is in ur plans for later this year, so stay tuned please.
Best from Berlin
The linux client should still sync with Wunderlist 2, however because of its legacy status, this may be problematic. We recommend using the web app at Wunderlist.com. We can’t comment on when a new linux app will be making an appearance. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding.
Regards from Berlin,
which browser is that?
Again: There is no decision made AGAINST a Linux client for Wunderlist 2. We still have this in our plans for later this year. But please also understand, that Wunderlist is a free service and we only have limited development resources. That’s why we decided to focus on the platforms that are used by the most users.
That’s why we built a Mac & Windows client first. I’m sure you understand that our top priorities are the platforms that are used by most people.
But again, a Linux client for Wunderlist 2 is planned. Stay tuned please & thank you for your patience.

@beofox: Wunderlist 2 doesn’t use the TideSDK – not sure where you got that info from, but it’s not true. All apps are build natively.
@Daniel: We also don’t support Windows 8 yet.
This is really uncool, will the older Linux client continue to work and sync? (Web apps are the future I know, but are sad substitutes for Applications)
Probably then I'll have to find something else. I loved this linux desktop app.
Web is not like desktop, unfortunately has no client for linux and there is no release date, I have to leave this software. If a community is not respect, it gets complicated.
I really, REALLY want Wunderlist 2 for linux. Sorry to hear it will not be supported. I don't always have an internet connection, but need 24/7 access to my Wunderlist. Looks like I will have to find something else.
(PS, the market for linux apps is growing exponetially!)
Please reconsider, and develop a Linux client.
As others I'm really disappointed with your decision of not develop a Linux client.
@ Ben Braun, in response to your comment "I recommend you to use the highly responsive web app, that is fully functional and you can use it fully offline": I understand your server problems and that the highly responsive and fully functional web app is not yet available but will be soon. However, there's something I can't understand: could you tell me how in the world I can reach "https://www.wunderlist.com" when I am offline?
Just to let you know. I'm also sad you drop the linux client.
At least start a crowd-funding project to see if some people would support it.
If the web app is so cool, responsive and great that Linux users don't need a client, why do you bother developping clients for Mac and Windows?
Please think about releasing a linux version of wunderlist. A webinterface is not an option for me,
I want ask the same question, if the web interface are so cool then why M$ Windows and MAC have desktop app support? It is the reason that I chose wunderlist as my GTD software since it had a Linux client. But it's so sad that wunderlist2 doesn't support it. Maybe it's time to try something else.
I second this. If the web interface is so great, why develop for other platforms at all? It was precisely not having to use a web interface that made me use Wunderlist in the first place. Seems a bit cruel now to discontinue servicing the community, after you got us all hooked...
The only reason why I got hooked up and recommended wunderlist over other services is exactly that it could use it through all my devices, especially linux boxes.
Really useful app, I'll surely return to use it if linux gets supported again.
Just another. Voice hoping for a linux version!
I think that is a discrimination, you make a mac version and dont make a linux one ... the systems are close ... ore not ?
[Hello Niels, what is missing in the web interface that makes it not an option for you?
Best regards from Berlin,
Dear Marvin from Berlin, answering your question, the only things missing on the web interface version are the “look and feel” and perhaps more respect for the Linux community, you know this perfectly, so you support a native app to Windows, OSx, Android and iOS presumably your target market, considering Linux a waste of resources I guess. In that case why don't you ask for help to the Open Source community, as far as I remember Wunderlist is Open Source under the Apache License.
Please think about releasing a Linux version of Wunderlist, so that we also can enjoy this great app, since we already use it on our phones so WE ALSO ARE YOUR TARGET MARKET.
Also like to know if Linux was discarded because it considered that the operating system market share was not significant for your future payment features.
Thanks in advance.
I really cannot understand your decision of not implementing wunderlist2 for linux. It is a very poor excuse saying "use the web interface instead". It is obvious, that this is valid for all operating systems. Why should a mac-user have a desptop-application while an ubuntu-user has not? Especially the functionality of the desktop-application made me choose wunderlist.
With your servers causing trouble and an android app, which is not useable for tablets, ignoring linux, I don't understand the whole idea anymore. For me, a perfect working application turned into something like a "beta-software, tested by customer". Sorry, I am a little bit dissapointed.
Skipping Wunderlist2 for Linux is the wrong direction. Most popular internet services offer linux client (e.g. Dropbox) or start it (like Steam). However, you drop your linux client, this is a shame...
I mean it would also be ok if the wunderlist 1 client could sync to wunderlist 2 lists. A native client is more luxury though. :-)
Most platforms are based on linux, and yet most companies ignore Linux. If you don't want to invest on Linux, provide an open API so people can come up with their own versions of the app.
I will probably switch to conqu as an alternative, since it has a linux client (it's in adobe air though), and is loaded with more features.
The choice to not provide a native port to Linux is a great shame. Leaving aside the fan boy type remarks, I found it refreshing to be able to install a great, usable app, direct onto Linux with no compatibility layer required and the same great application as I used on Windows and Android. This is not something I have encountered a great deal on Linux.
While Wunderlist 2 looks great (and as a developer I can see why you have gone native) I am a little confused. While I am happy to rely on the web application there are times I want to or have to work offline and don't want to or can not rely on my phone.
It would seem like you have strong support for a native Linux client so why not reconsider?
This is really lame. Looks like the old client is crashing on purpose now. What's the point of a works-on-every platform todo list app if it doesn't work on your platform.
It's a shame indeed, I really hope you reconsider. I think you may even find a lot of volunteers ready to join in on the development of the Linux client, I am one of them.
agree with above comments.. why Linux is treated like third class citizen .. Please support Linux with native application.
I first read about Wunderlist in the January Linux Journal. I'll have to let them know that Linux support has since been dropped. Since I specifically chose this because of a native Linux desktop client, I will be not be using Wunderlist, after all. Too bad, as it otherwise had promise.
I'm just another one who is disappointed about the decision not to support the Linux desktop client anymore. I thought I found the ideal tool for me, but now it seems like I have to start searching again...
Like the many before, I too am very disappointed with the decision to drop your Linux support. The only reason I started using Wunderlist was because it had a native Linux app. I will be moving to something else.
No Linux support means I will not use or recommend the product. I loved Wunderlist 1, but if you don't support my primary platform, it's useless to me.
I am using wunderlist as it was supported on linux.
If not anymore I'll stop and start switching to something else. It is really sad
Sad decision to not suppoer linux anymore. Will move to some other similar product. Thanks anyway for the 1.0 linux version.
Thanks for this wonderful app! Please update the Linux client.
Recommending Linux users to use the responsive web app or an outdated version is not justified when you have the latest versions available for Windows and Mac OS X.
I can't seem to login with Wunderlist 1 anymore - has the support been officially removed now?
I've tried changing my password and it still gives me "Login denied - Please try again"
No linux client means no more wunderlist for me. :(
Been using this software for a while now on my Android phone and Linux PC. The beauty of the whole thing being that I could use Wunderlist between them. Web interfaces are an irritation. Everything has that now to the point that it's hard to get any work done with all the tabs open for different web junk. If for no other reason than that it keeps my browser from being more cluttered I'd rather have a real client.
Also very disappointed about even thinking of dropping linux support. ALL of my devices/computers as well as the families' are linux derivations . We decided on wunderlist because of cross platform. Poor decision, poor insight in my opinion. Hope you reconsider. Otherwise, I will also be looking for alternatives. Can't believe it. Shutting out a portion of the most dangerous database you could possibly accumulate.
the download for Wunderlist 1 seems no longer available. Can you please provide Wunderlist 1 Linux until Wunderlist 2 for Linux is available.
No Linux client anymore? Then I'm deleting this from my android device right now. Too bad, because I got used to it. Now I have to switch to something else. Todoist is looking promising, and have Linux support (via its thunderbird plugin).
I'm also in strong need of getting the web interface to work on Linux. It just gives me a blank page? Strange that the web interface doesn't work.
Wunderlist is great, but it do need to work on linux. At a minimum in the browser.
Please consider creating a Linux client again or at least provide a way to work offline with Wunderlist inside Chrome. The application is not practical for me in this condition...
I think the desktop application of Toggl uses a headless Chromium and uses HTML5 offline storage techniques for a similar task. Please consider this, if everything else is too much work.
Well, sure we could just use the web app, but if all we get is a web app and a mobile app, there are much better choices out there! I originally found Wunderlist because it supported Linux and I chose it because it supported Linux. Looks like it's time has ended. This is not the first time they have let customers down.
I use wunderlist on iPhone, iPad and my Linux desktop. I still wish it at a desktop application.
Browser version is always uncomfortable...
Schade ! - Weißt Ihr, dass Ubuntu dieses Jahr ein Handy macht? Das bedeutet, dass Linux sehr berühmt wird, nicht wahr? Ich nehme an, Nitro wird dann die beste App werden, wenn Ihr uns keine Linux version geben? Aber Ihr seid cool, und Wunderlist ist der Hammer!
The 6wunderkinder statement, that the web app can do the job on a platform like Linux, is undermined by having native Wunderlist 2 versions for OSX and Windows. No reason for putting effort into this, if the web apps are sufficient, right? The communication lacks consistency in the light of 6wunderkinder earlier commitment to support all platforms.
...putting things in perspective, even Microsoft can figure out how to support Skype on Linux.
Please, reconsider a release of Wunderlist 2 client for Linux OS (soon!). It is the best TO DO app for Linux and that gives you a head of advantage over competitors and a good market share perspective.
Good morning everyone.
I would like to say that I really like the app that you develop! I'm a Linux user and I'm using Wunderlist only in my android tablet and rarely the web application.
Even as a free service and you wanting to cover "only" the most used platforms I assure you body will have too many Linux users using this application.
If you also have a paid application, assure that Linux users really iram buy it just to help them and they repay you for remembering us with Wunderlist.
You can prove this by Linux users now total almost all Mac users on Steam. And we are buying a lot of games for it :). One tool that I'm testing is the Wunderkit of you, congratulations on this great web app too! Maybe I'll buy the pro version ;).
I'm just waiting for the Wunderlist 2 for Linux: D.
Well, I was going to install wunderlist on my devices, android win and Linux, but just found out that there is no Linux client anymore.
Well, I think Ubuntu is coming to the rescue. I think you made a bad, bad decision.
I'm Wunderlist and Linux user, and while it's sad to not have Wunderlist 2 for Linux for a while, I'm still greatful for your doing it.
Yes, please fully support Linux.
Please, please. Linux app support
+1 for the Linux App.
Linux app was the reason why I preferred Wunderlist over any other task manager.
Same reason why I prefer Dropbox (Linux Support) over Box(No linux support).
And you guys are doing a great job. Wunderlist 2 is amazing, Linux support is the only thing missing.
Although Linux users are less, so less developers make products for Linux. But on the brighter side you have less competition. And once you get the Linux APP. You will have most of the Linux Task users hooked.
So it is like having 80% of 5% = 4%.
Over 3% of 95% = 2.8%.
And you will notice that Linux users are more active and contribute more. Go over humblebundle and you can see the avg. contribution of linux users.
All these cries for a linux client and no response from wunderlist, this means bye bye wunderlist and hello anything else. You have to vote somehow and wunderlist won't change their minds until you do so. Switch to a different program/application.
is there any news for the Linux client ?
Please do native linux app of wunderlist 2. Linux is used by millions!
@Marcel: Sorry for the late answer. I'm using Opensuse 12.2 with Firefox 20.0.
The blank screen has changed to the message "Please update your browser.". I suspect something still is wrong as Firefox 20.0 is latest.
I am outraged.
You removed my comment.
Wunderlist uses tidesdk.org (which is portable)
If this is true, is an insult to the community does not make a native application for Linux.
Why do you now support Windows 8 and has not one word about supporting GNU/Linux?
You really can't forget about Linux in this day and age, lots of developers and programmers use both Linux and Wunderlist. I mean, it's your guys product, but I think it's a fair suggestion to aim for ;)
as a linux user, I feel bad that I had recommended wunderlist to people before. not all of those people were linux users, and this is something i wish you could consider.
