Wunderlist is scheduled to sunset for good tomorrow, but parent company Microsoft has another option, ready-to-go for users…
Microsoft is about to shutter its cloud-based task management platform, Wunderlist, tomorrow. But, the software giant already has an alternative lined-up, simply and eponymously called “Microsoft To Do.” Although, some loyal users might not be ready to switch, but there are plenty of other choices.
Wunderlist Shuts Down Tomorrow, May 6th 2020
Microsoft initially made the announcement on the website of the platform, back in December of last year, with a short message reading:
“Wunderlist goes away on May 6, 2020. Make the move to Microsoft To Do. It’s a snap to switch. We’ll be with you every step of the way.”
Microsoft acquired it in June of 2015 from Berlin-based startup 6Wunderkinder, just four years after its creation in 2011. At the time of its purchase by Microsoft, it boasted more than 13 million users worldwide. Just two years later, in 2017, the software corporation let it be known it would kill off the application in favor of To Do, a new multi-platform app developed by the Wunderlist team that has direct integration with the company’s Office 365 service.
Of course, there’s a plethora of other task management tools out there. For instance, Google Calendar and Google Tasks are just two. There’s also such alternatives as TickTick, Todoist, Any.do, Tasks.org, and more.
