Just few days after Christian Reber on Twitter said he want to buy Wunderlist back from Microsoft, Microsoft unveiled brand-new To-Do app update. It continues with adding features to get parity with Wunderlist, which Microsoft acquired in 2015. Microsoft said, that its To-Do app got a big major update with new design and deeper integration with other platforms and more. As for design, according to Microsoft, To-Do now features more polished design, colors have been overhauled, ability to set personalized background, smaller headers and a support for Dark Mode in macOS, which will also come to its iOS counterpart very soon.
To-Do now supports cross-platform syncing, including Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and the web version. It also features parity with Wunderlist:
Like Wunderlist, we have smart lists where you can see your planned or important tasks in one list. But what makes To Do unique is the personalized daily planner feature, My Day.
It helps you accomplish what’s meaningful and important to you every day. Smart suggestions in My Day help you plan what you need to accomplish that day. And tomorrow? My Day will refresh, so you can start the day with a blank slate. Any tasks you didn’t complete will be waiting for you in suggestions.
Though Microsoft acquired Wunderlist in 2015, Wunderlist itself still works and there is still not a timetable when will be Wunderlist finally discontinued:
When Wunderlist became part of the Microsoft family, our mission was to bring the delightful, simple, and elegant daily task experience and build it into Microsoft’s intelligent, interconnected, and security-centric ecosystem to create a new app—Microsoft To Do.
If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, you can register with your existing email address (for example, Gmail). As soon as you sign in, the option to import your tasks from Wunderlist is displayed, or you can find it in Settings. Just start importing and you’ll be ready to get started with To Do.
