The basic idea is to use Alexas native shopping list feature and add a trigger in IFFT to send any new items on the list via Email to your Wunderlist account. The items will then appear in your Wunderlist. Unfortunately deleting is not possible via Alexa, only adding.
I have been using Wunderlist for a years now and did not come across a better ToDo-App that fits better to my needs. Since Microsoft’s Acquisition of Wunderlist back in 2015 the App did not change much and probably won’t will anymore. The official successor is called ToDo (creative…) but is not ready to really replace Wunderlist yet.
In order to add Items to your Wunderlist with Amazon Alexa voice commands you need
- a Wunderlist account with the mail-to-Wunderlist settings enabled
- Download and install IFTTT (If this than that)
- a Gmail account
Setup Wunderlist mail-feature
On this page you have to add your Gmail sender and the target ToDo-List that you will be using for the items to appear on.
Setup IFTTT recipe
In the IFTTT app or website create a new recipe:
If item added to your Shopping List, then send it as email to Wunderlist
Use Alexa voice commands to send items to Wunderlist
That’s it! Whenever you say
Alexa add Tomatoes to my shopping list
the items will apear on your Wunderlist.
