Microsoft's To-Do app, the successor to the popular Wunderlist task manager, gives you an easy way to track your tasks and organize your day.

Pros

Create lists: With Microsoft's To-Do app, you create lists for anything you want and apply themes and colors to quickly identify them. You then sort items alphabetically, by due date, by creation date, or if it's completed.

Manage your daily tasks: Each day, you can skip over all the undone to-do items and start fresh with a blank My Day list, letting you set your tasks based on daily priorities.

Add reminders, due dates, and notes: For to-do items, you can create reminders, set due dates, write notes, and add steps if it's a complicated item.

Recommends which tasks to focus on: Using what Microsoft is calling "Intelligent Suggestion," the app looks at your to-do items and recommends the ones you should focus on first.

Available across platforms: You can access your to-do lists on Android and iPhone, Windows 10, and via the website.

Wunderlist Part 2: In 2015, Microsoft acquired the task-manager Wunderlist, and for several years the company continued to support the popular app. At the end of 2017, the company said it was retiring Wunderlist and focusing its efforts on To-Do. If you are a Wunderlist user looking to make the switch to To-Do, Microsoft has an importer tool to move your Wunderlist information over to To-Do.

Cons

No Mac app: Hard to call this a severe negative -- since Mac users can access their to-do lists via the web -- but To-Do lacks a Mac app.

Lacks collaboration tools: Unlike some other task managers, such as Wunderlist, you can't share or assign tasks to colleagues.

Bottom Line

Microsoft's To-Do is an easy way to manage your tasks across platforms -- as long as you don't need a native Mac app. If you are looking for a replacement for Wunderlist, To-Do is a solid choice.

Developer's Description

Microsoft To-Do is a simple and intelligent to-do list that makes it easy to plan your day. Whether it's for work, school or home, To-Do will help you to increase your productivity and decrease your stress levels. It combines intelligent technology and beautiful design to empower you to create a simple daily workflow.

Organise and plan your day

Organise your day with To-Do's smart Suggestions and complete the most important tasks, jobs or housework you need to get done, every day. To-Do syncs between your phone and computer, so you can access your to-do from school, the office or the supermarket, or even whilst you're traveling around the world.

Share your lists with family and colleagues

List sharing enables you to collaborate on common lists and tasks and achieve your goals seamlessly. Whether you want to share a list of work items with your teams or a shopping list with your partner, with our share link, we make it easy to coordinate and collaborate in small teams and one-on-one. Getting things done together has never been easier!

Break down your task into smaller, actionable items

Steps (Subtasks) allow any to-do to be broken down into smaller, more actionable pieces. To help customers be even more productive, each to-do will display just how many steps (subtasks) it contains and how many of those steps have been completed so far. Steps (Subtasks) will also maintain their completion state even as the to-do they belong to is marked as completed or incomplete.

Set due dates and reminders

You can quickly add, organise and schedule your to-dos whilst you're on the go. With important to-dos that you really shouldn't forget, you can add reminders and due dates - we'll remember them for you. And if you have to-dos that you need to tick off on a daily, weekly or yearly basis, you can set up recurring due dates to remind you each and every time.

Add notes to your tasks

You can also use To-Do as a note-taking app, adding detailed notes to every to-do - from addresses, to details about that book you want to read, to the website for your favourite cafe. You can collect all of your tasks and notes in one place to help you achieve more.

Colour-coding your lists

What areas of your life do you want to be more productive in? You can have a colour-coded list for each. Now you can quickly add your homework to one list, your shopping to another, your packing list, your work projects and your home DIY projects to yet more lists. And if you follow a productivity system, such as GTD (David Allen's Getting Things Done Methodology), then you can create a Someday list or a Follow-up list.

Outlook integration

With the integration with Outlook Mail, you can view your tasks on your Outlook Desktop client or on Outlook.com using the same Microsoft Account. All to-dos are stored on Exchange Online servers, so they will be shown in both Microsoft To-Do and Outlook Tasks automatically.

Plan what you want to focus on each morning and give yourself a powerful productivity boost for the day. This simple to-do list app is free to download and use. It includes customisable themes, notes, reminders, due dates, smart Suggestions and syncing across multiple devices. In short, everything you need to manage your life and accomplish more. Completing your jobs or housework has never been so easy. It is the task management tool you need to add to your daily arsenal.
