Is there really a difference? They seem to have the same functionality. Anyone use one over the other for a particular reason

The advantage to using Wunderlist is that it supports multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Mac, and PC. It also has a web version.

Reminders only supports iPhone and works through the Calendar Web Apps through various services(Google Calendar or iCloud).

I prefer Wunderlist because it is much easier to setup and use on all of my devices.

I decided on awesome note. I used to use springpad because it did notes and tasks but after the last update it's useless

Well I'm back to wunderlist after realizing a web interface is a must.

I'm still torn because reminders just seems a bit cleaner.

There is a comparison here: www.reminders-vs-wunderlist.com - I'm a Wunderlist fan myself.

The best thing about Reminders, and why I always end up using it over others, is the ability to tell Siri to add a reminder for you. If Siri could add to other apps I'd probably look elsewhere, but using my voice is so quick and easy.

I would switch exclusively to Reminders, but Wunderlist has a beautiful printout feature. I use it to print out questions when I do interviews for my podcast.

i think that is a feature of ios6...siri in other apps. With that said, i double apple would let it set reminders in a different app since you cannot change the default app

I like reminders, i just wish i could setup all of the options from initial create screen. You hit + to add, create your reminder then you have to leave it and come back to setup an actual reminder for a date or place (unless i am doing it wrong).

I agree. I like Due because it's quick and easy when typing in your reminder. But I typically always use Siri to add it to the Reminder.app then I dont have to type anything at all.

When you use Siri (still only a IP4 here), will Siri add the reminder place or time as well.
