Microsoft confirms it has acquired 6Wunderkinder and its Wunderlist app
Microsoft has finally confirmed that it has acquired the German-based company 6Wunderkinder and its popular mobile "to-do list" app Wunderlist. While the specific financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, a previous report from the Wall Street Journal claims that Microsoft paid between $100 to $200 million for 6Wunderkinder.
In a blog post, Eran Megiddo. Microsoft's General Manager for OneNote, stated:
Christian Reber, the founder and CEO of 6Wunderkinder, confirmed that he will continue to lead the Wunderlist development team in its Berlin home office. He added:

It's not always about the $$$$$$$
How do they screw the customers, and rip them off over, and over❓
What does Apple promise their customers that they don't do❓
The prime example of this is MS buying Nokia... People complained about the name change on the devices at first, but nobody gives a flip now. What MS is essentially doing here is converting users into MS fans without their consent, and playing on their needs... Cool❗
MS acquirers mostly utilities,, because they will be needed for the foreseeable future..
I personally think Instagram is less a fad than SC.. I'd rather see MS acquire something like Instagram if they decide to go that route... Nevertheless, I do agree that MS could benefit from something popular, and fun.
Nevertheless, when market share increases SC will definitely come.. It's inevitable. That's really what everyone is saying...
I'm trying Wunderlist in my small business and I'm skeptical of its ability to track 100's of Project related tasks and sub-tasks and accommodate changing priorities among the team. Does anyone use Wunderlist for this?
wow, I think? You have alot of words and some abbreviations I don't know? If I understand correctly, then I hope you are right about them being on the cutting edge and it leading to something significant. (May I ask, what is the value of "big data"? First, I'll have to research what big data is.)
I researched it too and the web site looked great but was just alot of words?
And also.. Why dont they just make the xbox music and video subscription "One" ? I mean.. Like on xbox.. Atleast a free album every week and a movie just like on games with Gold.. As long as you have subscription, the music is yours and the games and the videos...and make it cheaper. Make an optional Office 365 add-on with unlimited onedrive.. And boom! And also on Windows Store,if you have subscription at least free app and games a week :) oh i was just dreaming.
But so excited at Microsoft.
What is point about 6 as first character of company name and apps like 6tag etc?
Plug in? Tell us more.
Wunderlist is totally different from OneNote. They act differently and are for different uses. They should merge features with Outlook Tasks and then IMPROVE.
You can share OneNote lists without using Family Room and our family has set up a Family group on GroupMe. That said, yes the additional features of Wunderlist will be welcome.
