Today is finally the day Wunderlist dies, years after the Microsoft acquisition. Former users are encouraged to switch to Microsoft To Do, Wunderlist's spiritual successor as a Redmond product. To make the jump smoother on the last possible day, the company has added some more features known from Wunderlist, like overviews of your tasks for today, tomorrow, or the week ahead as well as new All and Completed smart lists.
Today's the day we say goodbye to Wunderlist, a beloved productivity app for many. The service was bought by Microsoft back in 2015, and the company preferred to replace it with a new app instead of keeping it alive. Sadly, To-Do, the in-house successor, didn't live up to several people's expectations, including myself, who turned to alternative solutions. It seems the developers are aware of their disappointment and have used the opportunity to announce a new productivity app called Superlist.

If you're a Wunderlist user, you're most probably aware the app will cease to exist on May 6th. Microsoft has been pushing its To-Do app to users, but there are a bunch of other options to consider.

Todoist is one of the leading task management apps on the market. It's full of features and easy to use. However, competition is fierce, and while many other solutions offer the option to manage tasks visually with a calendar view, Todoist has been behind on this feature. Thankfully, it's now receiving new ways to see items at a glance and plan for them more efficiently.
If you're a Wunderlist user, you're probably aware the app is set to disappear next month. I've personally used it for years and swore by it. I gave Microsoft's in-house replacement a try, but it wasn't good enough for me, so I had to turn to another solution. However, there's a new player on the market that might be theperfect replacement for Wunderlist, called Zenkit To Do. In fact, it looks so similar to Wunderlist that you might actually think it's just an updated version.
If you spend your day going through email, you probably know this is usually a painstaking task. Most of us tend to receive messages we'd rather not see, and spend way too much time organizing our mailbox instead of being productive. Gmail is probably one of the most intuitive email providers on the market, but its interface is not necessarily the most convenient one when it comes to work-related emails. Edison has been working on addressing this issue with its email client, but now wants to go further by announcing its own email service that's designed to compete directly with Gmail.
Microsoft To-Do has been off to a bad start and has lacked many beloved Wunderlist capabilities for a long time. The developers have picked up some steam, though. Recent feature additions improved the application considerably and a smooth new interface including a dark mode brought the user experience to a new level. Now Microsoft has also added notifications that inform you when a collaborator adds a task or checks one off, and you can use drag and drop to add text or files to To Do in split-screen mode.
Todoist is starting to roll out a major update to its task manager on all platforms. Dubbed "Foundations," the new version brings a lot of changes to project and task management, as well as a few interface improvements.
