What would make Wunderlist better?

Visible Subtasks

I'm new to Wunderlist so please tell me if I've somehow missed a setting for this.. It would be great to have the subtasks visible under each todo in the list. But with an expand/collapse + symbol against each todo so you can hide/display its subtasks. I find it unclear if a todo has subtasks when they are tucked away in the properties pane.

        I am shocked that Wunderlist doesn't offer this feature. I am also new to this app, and this may well be a deal breaker for me. How could this app possibly get such good reviews without this essential feature? There is a good chance I won't stick around long enough to see if they fix this.

        Why does no one from the dev team gives us attention?? I dont like the lack of caring from this company.

        It would be great if you can see all not completed ( or completed) subtasks on the left side as a list. Kind of what OmniFocus offers on the Mac OS.

        My boyfriend and I both use Wunderlist and completely agree. We both have free accounts and don’t need more than 25 subtasks, so that’s fine.

        When you click on a task that has subtasks (particularly on mobile) it opens up the task into the window. It would be nice if when we tapped the Pin icon (that denotes a task has sub items) it would expand within the main list.

        and as someone who is blind, my screen reader doesn't tell me if a task has subtasks, it is silent even when I tab over to the subtask field in the properties of the task itself. The only way I know is by toggling what's called Browse Mode on when I'm there (it's a way to interact with a webpage using keyboard navigation).

        Collapsable lists of subtasks are essential and I am really surprised that this feature is not possible yet.

        Equally several levels of hierarchy with folders and subfolders should be possible
