Wunderlist shuts down May 6th, 2020 in favor of Microsoft To Do

Back in 2015, Microsoft acquired a Berlin-based startup behind the popular Wunderlist to-do list app. Two years down the line, the company released its own to-do list app — Microsoft To Do — which was based on the framework popularized by Wunderlist. At the time, Microsoft also announced that it would eventually retire Wunderlist. While the app has been working just fine for the last couple of years, it seems like its days are now numbered.

According to a recent blog post from Wunderlist, Microsoft plans to officially shut down the app on May 6th, 2020 in favor of Microsoft To Do. In case you’re a Wunderlist user, you can keep using the app until the aforementioned date, after which will you will be required to migrate to a different to-do list app. Users will still be able to access their data and they’ll have the option to either export it or import it directly onto Microsoft To Do. However, after May 6th, the app won’t sync your to-dos.

Microsoft has ensured that switching over to Microsoft To Do is a relatively simple and straightforward process. All you need to do is download the app from the respective app store on your device, sign in with your Microsoft account and tap on the Wunderlist importer pop-up to transfer all your data. When compared to Wunderlist, Microsoft To Do offers a plethora of additional features and it recently received a major refresh with a new design, a dark mode, improvements to the My Day features and more. If you’re on Android, you can download Microsoft To Do from the link below and start importing your data over from Wunderlist right away.
