Back in 2015, Microsoft acquired the popular task management app Wunderlist. Close to two years after the acquisition, Microsoft has now released a new to-do list application called Microsoft To-Do.
Microsoft To-Do app for Windows 10
Microsoft To-Do is a free app from Microsoft. The To-Do app is currently available for Windows 10 devices, iPhone, and Android phones.
According to Microsoft, the Microsoft To-Do app is developed by the team behind Wunderlist app. Because of this, the new To-Do app from Microsoft has a strong resemblance to Wunderlist app and offers many of the features present in Wunderlist.
Currently, the To-Do app cannot do everything that Wunderlist can, but the app will soon receive all the features of Wunderlist.
Like the Wunderlist app, the Microsoft To-Do app allows you create a list for anything and everything. For instance, you can create a list for office work, school work, groceries, and shopping. The app helps you add reminders, due dates, and notes to lists.
The To-Do app is highly customizable. You can personalize your lists with custom themes. You can sort to-dos in a list by alphabetically, due date, creation date, and My Day.
The search function is helpful to quickly search for a specific task, a feature which comes in handy when you have tens of lists and hundreds of tasks.
You can use Microsoft To-Do app to take notes as well. You can quickly add notes to your tasks.
In coming months, you will be able to access your Microsoft Outlook Tasks right from the To-Do app.
When it comes to security, the Microsoft To-Do app is ahead of its competitors. Data is encrypted in transit and at rest.
Microsoft To-Do app requires you to sign-in with a Microsoft account. However, if you are already using a Microsoft account to sign-in to Windows 10, the app automatically uses your Microsoft account upon installing it on Windows 10.
The To-Do app does not support live tile feature yet. This means that, although you can pin To-Do app to Start, the To-Do app tile on the Start does not display your tasks.

Microsoft says that it will add all features of Wunderlist to Microsoft To-Do app before retiring the Wunderlist app. So, if you are Wunderlist user, you have a few months to continue using your favorite task management app. As said, To-Do app is developed by the team behind Wunderlist, meaning the To-Do app will be more or less like the Wunderlist.
