Microsoft buys to-do-list app Wunderlist

Microsoft has confirmed its acquired another productivity app to build its mobile presence. The company bought Wunderlist, a cross platform to-do-list app that you can then share with your friends, family, and co-workers. It’s a beautifully designed app that gets the job done. If Microsoft takes the same approach as it did with Acompli, and integrate it with their Windows service the app will still be amazing.

Wunderlist announced the news on its blog promising no changes will happen in the near future. The resources from Microsoft will let the app grow and expands it features. The app will be free and the Wunderlist Pro and Wunderlist for business won’t have any price changes.

“I will continue to lead the team and product strategy, because that’s what I love the most–building great products that help individuals and businesses get stuff done in the simplest and most intuitive way possible,” wrote Wunderlist CEO and founder Christian Reber.

Microsoft scooped up the email productivity app, Acompli, that was later rebranded as the new Outlook email app. The company also recently bought the popular calendar app Sunrise, and has stayed separate and untouched from Microsoft.
