Microsoft's to-do app, To Do, has received a bit of a facelift. In a recent update, the app formerly known as To-Do has dropped the hyphen from its name, gotten a new, more modern look, and added customization options including wallpapers and a dark theme.
Wallpapers can be changed per individual list, in case you want to give your home tasks a different feel from your work tasks. One of the included wallpapers is the Berlin TV tower that was featured in Wunderlist — Microsoft really wants to remind users that that app's days are numbered.
Today we have something a little special to announce—we have a brand new look!
You’ll notice your lists look a little different now: we’ve removed the large headers and given your tasks a little pop.
We now have full color backgrounds. Choose from an image, plain or pastel colors.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, we’ve also given our logo a refresh.
Came here looking for a bug fix, left with a brand new look.

Microsoft purchased 6Wunderkinder, the team behind Wunderlist, in 2015. At the time, the company said it planned to continue the app's operation — but in 2017, it released To-Do, built by the same team that made Wunderlist, and said that it planned to retire Wunderlist once it had "incorporated the best of Wunderlist into Microsoft To-Do." As To Do picks up more features, that day draws ever closer. If you're a Wunderlist aficionado, it's probably best to make the transition sooner than later. You can grab To Do below to give it a spin.
