Wunderlist was a great app for collaborative to-do lists, letting teams work on a single unified breakdown of every task needed to be done.

The new app was built by the folks behind Wunderlist, a powerful and flexible task manager from a Berlin-based startup that Microsoft acquired back in 2015. Aside from a basic to-do list, there wasn't anything remarkable about the leaks, save for the feature that lets the app input to-do suggestions.

Of course since this is a Microsoft product, you have integration with other Office 365 software and apps.

One of To-Do's more interesting options will come via the "Intelligent Suggestions".

You can also create separate lists of your own, add reminders, notes and due dates to tasks, sync between multiple devices and choose between 10 color themes for the interface. Microsoft's new To-Do app is available to try on iPhone now, and preview versions for iPad and Mac will soon follow. Microsoft unveiled To-Do today in Preview, which is essentially a public beta.

If you're anxious about Wunderlist, then know that at least for the time being, Wunderlist will continue to exist, though To-Do already has an import feature to bring all your lists over. Microsoft says that the team will bring in favorite elements of Wunderlist into to-do in the coming months.

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

To-Do promises a "smarter, more personal and intuitive way to help people stay organized", and is now available in preview form across multiple platforms. Iin addition to Windows 10 and the web, that means not only are there new apps for iOS and Android but also for Windows 10 Mobile.

The preview is now available for iPhone (iOS 9.0 or later), Android (4.4 or higher), Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile and Web.

Microsoft has announced that the death of Wunderlist will not affect your saved lists in the app.

The Verge reports that the To-Do list application also incorporates lists with emojis in order for users to easily identify them.

Interested users can download and install Microsoft Authenticator app from the App Store or Google Play and then add their Microsoft account to the app.
