In the wake of the preview launch of its new To-Do app, Microsoft has announced plans to eventually say goodbye to Wunderlist. There's no firm timeline involved, but as development on To-Do moves forward and it absorbs the best of Wunderlist, Microsoft says Wunderlist will be retired.
In its blog post announcing the To-Do Preview, Microsoft says:
Microsoft acquired Wunderlist and its developer 6Wunderkinder in mid-2015, reportedly paying somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million to $200 million. While Wunderlist later released a Windows 10 app, it was unclear what Microsoft might choose to do once word surface that it had begun work on its own To-Do list app, known as Project Cheshire at the time.
Though the move to retire Wunderlist might ruffle some feathers in the short term, it's good to see Microsoft is taking its time to make sure the best aspects of Wunderlist make their way to To-Do before that happens. For now, you can continue to use Wunderlist or check out Microsoft To-Do by grabbing both at the Windows Store.
