To-Do is created to replace Wunderlist, which Microsoft plans to retire after all Wunderlist features have been built into the new app. Beyond this, Microsoft goes on to list all the things you can do, which users could already do within the Wunderlist app (add due dates, notes, access it across any device etc).
A "My Day" view helps you see and organise tasks which need to be done today.
More importantly - to Microsoft, at least - is that To-Do has been built to integrate with Microsoft Office.
To-Do lets you create simple to-do lists, set reminders, and keep track of projects.
The To-Do app is not ready at this point to meet the needs of all Wunderlist users, however.
Update: According to Mary Jo Foley and Microsoft any Microsoft Account can use this service and an Office 365 subscription is not required.
"As the only task management app built on an enterprise cloud, To-Do offers the advanced security that our Office 365 customers expect", Artman wrote.
United: Airline won't use police to remove passengers
When too few volunteers came forward, law enforcement was tasked to select random passengers and force them off the plane. Transportation Department also is investigating whether United complied with federal regulations regarding overbooking .
Of course, this is just the beginning for To-Do, and it'll gain more features over time.
Microsoft explains that the To-Do app offers new features including "My Day" which lists items that needed to be done.
The app needs to be configured to your Microsoft account and then the user selects the option that reads "phone sign-in" when attempting to log into your account.
When Microsoft sunsetted the popular Sunrise calendar app that it acquired, there were fears that it would do likewise when it acquired popular list app Wunderlist.
To-Do will come with the staple features for a list.
Essentially, the new Microsoft To-Do app carries on with all that made the Wunderlist so endearing though it has also been enhanced on a number of fronts, which among other includes deeper integration with other Microsoft services.
