Microsoft to shut down Wunderlist in favor of its new app, To-Do

And when they feel that they have finally incorporated the best of Wunderlist, they will eventually retire the app. Every morning, your My Day list starts out with a clean slate, allowing you to be more intentional about what you want to get done.

Unsurprisingly, To-Do integrates with Microsoft's Office suite.

It includes Intelligent Suggestions that aim to help users focus and plan to complete tasks that are the most important.

Notably missing from To-Do (along with any pro-level features) is integration with Office 365, but Microsoft says it will be added in the coming months, starting with Outlook.

You can create lists for whatever you need - groceries, work stuff, and home projects, for instance - and personalize them with colorful themes. Any task that the person does not get done is hidden away the user hits the lightbulb button for suggestions about things they should get done.

Tiger still in the woods
The 18-time major victor was in Missouri for the announcement of the first public course designed by Woods' company TGR Design. Tiger Woods , Johnny Morris and Tom Lehman sit in front of what will soon be the 19th hole at Payne's Valley.

Microsoft is retiring Wunderlist soon, but it won't be terminating the task management tool without releasing a replacement for it. As Microsoft explains it, you'll also be able to review to-do's from the day before as well as view what's due and other upcoming tasks, via this feature.

While this is a great system, and I will be using it for my Microsoft account going forward it, does have some drawbacks and does not eliminate the need to use strong, unique passwords for all of your accounts. 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. Microsoft To-Do is a completely different app from Wunderlist, and it's part of Microsoft's Office 365 suite. Microsoft also has made security a top priority in To-Do, with end-to-end encryption.

The preview of the new Microsoft To-Do application is available for iPhone, Android phones, Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and the Web starting today.

Microsoft has updated its Authenticator app to enable users to sign-in to any Microsoft service by tapping a notification on their smartphone. List sharing is also not available.
