Wunderlist is already one of the best apps to get things done on your iPhone, and soon, it will be just as good on the Apple Watch.

In a post on their official blog, Berlin-based Wunderlist developer 6Wunderkinder goes into extreme detail about their upcoming version for the Apple Watch.

According to chief design officer Ben Lehnert, the main goal of the Wunderlist Apple Watch app was try to pare down the functions of the iPhone version.

Very early on, we decided that Wunderlist for Apple Watch shouldn’t try to do everything you can already do on your phone, tablet or desktop. Instead we wanted every interaction with Wunderlist on the Watch to be hyper-relevant and personal.

In the Apple Watch version of Wunderlist, the Home view of the app has four colorful buttons that allow users to quickly access other parts of the app, like today’s agenda, your inbox, or your important to-dos. By using the Digital Crown, you can jump to a specific list.

Here’s how Lehnert describes what using Wunderlist on the Apple Watch app will be like:

As you move through the day, you won’t even have to open Wunderlist on your Watch to get stuff done. Just take a look at our Glance during breakfast to review your most important to-dos for the day. Thanks to Wunderlist’s real-time notifications, a subtle tap on your wrist will let you know what your colleagues are working on during your morning commute, and remind you to pick up the milk on your way home from work.

Another way that the Wunderlist Apple Watch app works to feel “hyper-relevant and personal” is through custom animations, which Wunderlist designed to give users a feeling of being rewarded upon the accomplishment of their goals.

Wunderlist’s Apple Watch app is available now, but obviously, you won’t be able to use it until the Apple Watch lands on store shelves on Friday, April 24.
