Microsoft's Wunderlist Replacement 'To-Do' Now Available

The tasks that you've assigned due dates to won't automatically be added to My Day when they're nearly due, but they will show up at the top of your Intelligent Suggestions alongside other tasks that To-Do believes you may want to complete today.

Unsurprisingly, To-Do integrates with Microsoft's Office suite. The app also has a Suggestions feature that looks at all your to dos (including items from previous days you didn't get done) and "intelligently prioritizes the most important ones", Microsoft said.

One of To-Do's more interesting options will come via the "Intelligent Suggestions".

The To-Do app allows users to create lists for work, home projects or just about anything.

After spending some time with To-Do on iPhone, my initial impressions are that it's a attractive, simple task management tool that very much feels like a worthy successor to Wunderlist.

Head over to the Microsoft To-Do web app and log in. Your lists will be synced across all your devices, too, although this requires that you have a Microsoft account. For commercial users, IT professionals can now enable the To-Do Preview through the Office 365 admin center.

The app can import existing Wunderlist lists or create new lists from scratch.

The Authenticator app is available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10 Mobile, but regrettably, while the first two include the new feature, Microsoft has not seen fit to add it to the version of the software that runs on its own platform, citing low usage.

Microsoft says it wants to hear from users about how they find the new signin methods.

The upcoming app will also be integrated in Microsoft Office, Outlook and Office 365 as a whole. 'And after a soft launch last month, we're excited to announce the GA [general availability of] our newest sign-in feature: phone sign-in for Microsoft accounts! It's lacking a few features still, like list sharing and collaboration, but that's all on the way. Did not Microsoft buy Wunderlist a couple of years ago exactly for that objective?

Microsoft To-Do is made by the same development team behind Wunderlist, so there's an implied assurance of continuity.

Users who wish to use the Microsoft Authenticator app can download it from Google Play or the App Store.
