Microsoft Authenticator App Now Supports Phone Sign-in for Microsoft Accounts

Microsoft would soon be shutting down popular to-do list app, Wunderlist that it acquired two years ago.

A preview of a new Microsoft To-Do Office 365 application was released this week. Powered by Office 365 integration and an intelligent algorithm, it is the first step on our journey to simplify task management and help you achieve more. We look forward to making To-Do even more useful, intuitive and personal. Microsoft has stated the app will also be connected to other Microsoft services such as Outlook along with a few other Office apps as well.

For those saddened by the demise of Wunderlist, don't worry. Microsoft is now looking to port over a majority of the preferred features to To-Do before - grab a seat - retiring Wunderlist. It also said that it won't completely shut the app down for the time being.

According to Microsoft this app was built by the same folks who work on Wunderlist and while the new app will eventually pick up numerous popular features from Wunderlist, at some point down the road Wunderlist will be retired. As the name suggests, the app is a to-do app, although it has been created to be more intuitive and intelligent, and has been put-together by the team behind Wunderlist, following its acquisition by Microsoft. The service syncs automatically with Outlook, and you will find your Outlook Tasks in To-Do right away provided that you use the same account for both services. It also has some neat personalization options so you can style your lists with fancy colors.

Microsoft promises not to shut down the app until it has "incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do". But not much was revealed.

According to Microsoft's announcement, To-Do starts you off in a screen called "My Day" which offers a list of items that need to get done today.

To-Do is perhaps the best looking task management app I've ever used - though the upcoming Things 3 may steal that title. From there, users can either chose what they fill it with or turn to the Intelligent Suggestions.

The company says there is a link at the bottom of the confirmation page that allows users to use passwords if they prefer.
