Microsoft announces Wunderlist successor, the imaginatively named To-Do

Microsoft announces Wunderlist successor, the imaginatively named To-Do

Microsoft wants to change that with a new app feature that basically removes passwords from the equation entirely. The service syncs automatically with Outlook, and you will find your Outlook Tasks in To-Do right away provided that you use the same account for both services.

To help you focus on what you need to do today, you have the My Day list which starts out empty every day and you just need to populate it with what you actually need to finish today. That acquisition had followed as part of lightweight personal-app buying spree by Microsoft, which also included the purchase of Acompli (for e-mail apps) and Sunrise Atelier (for calendar apps). However, you can also tap on the light bulb icon to show tasks left undone, as well as suggestions on what has yet to be done. The list is created by the way you use the app.

Wunderlist has always been an excellent app for the forgetful types, helping them to keep track of their projects or just about any other task that they need to do.

The preview is now available for iPhone (iOS 9.0 or later), Android (4.4 or higher), Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile and Web.

Spurs can no longer be considered underdogs, says Antonio Conte
Anthony Knockaert is one of four Brighton players in the Championship Team of the Year. Conte appears resigned to being without his on-field captain this season.

So that means if you are subscribed to Office 365 those will be the only accounts that work on To-Do beginning with this preview. Today, the company launched a similar app, which has the rather generic name Microsoft To-Do. Instead, he used his Microsoft account to access the app. The new app was built by the team behind Wunderlist, and will bring in the favorite elements of that app in the months ahead, Microsoft says.

Microsoft is planning to bring more features from Wunderlist to To-Do, including the ability to share lists; a Mac app and tablet apps for iOS and Android are also planned. Once Microsoft To-Do gets some of the best features of Wunderlist, Microsoft will be retiring Wunderlist. It's too early to say if To-Do will be able to match up to the standards set by Wunderlist, but Microsoft made it unambiguously clear.

To-Do will come with the staple features for a list.

Users who wish to use the Microsoft Authenticator app can download it from Google Play or the App Store.
