Microsoft is trying to win over former Wunderlist app users by upgrading its To-Do app on all platforms. The To-Do app (iOS, Android, Windows) will look more like Wunderlist and perform better after some UI changes.
The company's lesser known To-Do web app got a redesign, making it look more like Outlook. Through the web app update, users get a Planned smart list feature that shows upcoming tasks for the next five days.
The updates are small compared to the addition of list sharing, steps for tasks, organization hashtags, and support inking within the app. It also begs the question why the updates weren't the same across the board.
The app looks interesting, and fairly easy to use, but if you Google to-do apps, more than a dozen will generate. And Wunderlist is still available for download. There's not a lot of ways to "reinvent" a to-do list.
Remember the Milk (iOS, Android) or the Things app (MacOS, iOS) looks the same. If you're more of a traditionalist and prefer sticky notes, you might like the Google Keep app (Android, iOS, Windows). Google Home, Siri, and Alexa also track tasks.
