The first item in Microsoft's new To-Do app? Retire Wunderlist

The first item in Microsoft's new To-Do app? Retire Wunderlist

Intelligent Suggestions is going to be one of the primary features of To-Do. Microsoft also has made security a top priority in To-Do, with end-to-end encryption.

Given people's dependence on their phones, this move makes sense for Microsoft as does the notion of giving users of Apple (aapl) and Android devices a reason to download a Microsoft (msft) app. "While the name and icon may change, the team that brought you Wunderlist continues on", writes Microsoft. Microsoft says it will incorporate favorite elements of Wunderlist in the coming months.

No, not immediately. But definitely.! Wunderlist was purchased last year and if development of To-Do advances at the required speed, one can expect the transition could take place by the end of the year.

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. This gives some hope.

Can Barcelona pull off another miracle?
The Serie A leaders boast a commanding 3-0 advantage over Barca from the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final. It is a complicated task, but we have the players to turn things around.

Newest Knicks' rebuild will begin with decision on Anthony
More important for the Knicks at the moment than respecting Carmelo Anthony's legacy is making sure Kristaps Porzingis is happy. Jackson and Anthony, if it hasn't happened already, will need to sit down and iron out their future plans at some point.

He praised the firefighters for putting the fire out so quickly and said the strong winds meant it spread at pace. Pedestrian bridges to Bally's and Caesars Palace closed, and busy Las Vegas Boulevard was shut down.

The new app is the flawless companion for listing anything users need to do at work, home and everything in between. Furthermore, Microsoft is planning to add the share list features across multiple platforms. Redmond already provides a tool that lets users import their content from Wunderlist into Microsoft To-Do - so users should be able to seamlessly transfer from Wunderlist to To-Do.

- Initially it seemed as if I could not make a to-do list item a recurring event. It will automatically sync your Tasks with To-Do, and allow you to access and manage them across devices. Every day to day activities can be recorded and be called for later. Which inevitably does mean that if you are a Wunderlist user still, it might be time to consider migrating over to To-Do. Still, your undone tasks from yesterday will be in the background which you can volunteer to check. Just add the ones you want to get done to My Day. The list is created by the way you use the app. The most common way of dealing with this issue is to use a password manager package which stores your passwords in an encrypted format and fills them in as and when you need them; Microsoft's approach, however, is to do away with passwords altogether.

The preview of the new Microsoft To-Do application is available for iPhone, Android phones, Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and the Web starting today.
