To-Do lets you create simple to-do lists, set reminders, and keep track of projects.
The new app bears a striking resemblance to Wunderlist and even offers the ability import existing Wunderlist lists — something that’s likely no coincidence, given that Microsoft bought Wunderlist back in 2015.
One of the big draws of Microsoft To-Do is the “My Day” feature, which encourages users to focus on daily tasks by offering a fresh list every day. The app is connected to Office 365 and will offer built-in integration with Outlook along with other Office apps farther down the line. An intelligent suggestions feature is also integrated to recommend tasks for each new day based on upcoming items or old entries. Lists can also be assigned emoji to easily tell them apart, and of course will sync across whatever devices you’re using To-Do on.
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. To-Do is set to eventually replace Wunderlist once Microsoft feels that the new app has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.”
