Latest news about Any.do and Wunderlist:
20.04.17. Microsoft unveiled productivity app To-Do that will replace Wunderlist. Microsoft acquired the popular mobile to-do list app Wunderlist back in 2015, and now it’s preparing users for its eventual demise with the release of its new application To-Do. The new app was built by the team behind Wunderlist, and will bring in the favorite elements of that app in the months ahead. The company also added that it won’t shut down Wunderlist until it’s confident that it has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.” In the meantime, Microsoft is encouraging Wunderlist users to make the switch by offering an importer that will bring in your lists and to-dos from Wunderlist into To-Do, where those items will now be available in other Microsoft products, like Exchange and Outlook. The To-Do app is not ready at this point to meet the needs of all Wunderlist users, however. As many users realized, some platforms do not yet support To-Do, including Mac, iPad and Android tablet. Task list sharing is also not available.
02.06.15. Microsoft acquired To-Do app Wunderlist. Microsoft has acquired 6Wunderkinder GmbH, a Berlin-based startup behind the Wunderlist to-do list app (for between $100 million and $200 million). The purchase is part of Microsoft’s new effort to enhance its line of mobile apps. Wunderlist apps work on iOS as well as Android operating systems, both of which compete with Microsoft. It has recently started offering the mobile version of Microsoft Office free and acquired two makers of mobile apps: San Francisco-based Acompli Inc., which makes mobile-email applications, and Sunrise Atelier Inc., a New York-based startup behind the popular Sunrise mobile calendar application. Microsoft rebranded Acompli as Outlook for mobile. All three acquisitions point to an integration of Microsoft productivity tools, with an emphasis on mobile apps.
14.05.15. Wunderlist adds integrations with Slack, Sunrise, HipChat and more. Popular to-do app Wunderlist is finally turning on an API so that people can create or modify Wunderlist tasks in other apps, and get alerts for Wunderlist tasks when they’re in those apps. The first wave of API partners — which have been playing around with a closed beta of the API since January, the company tells me — are Sunrise, Slack, OneNote, HipChat, Zapier and Scanbot. Next up will be an integration center — which sounds not unlike a similar feature you would get in a product like Slack giving users a very easy way of linking in whatever apps they choose to have feeding into Wunderlist. (Note that Wunderlist already has made a little bit of an inroad into integrations, too: in October, Dropbox became its first integration partner.)
23.04.15. To-do app Any.do 3.0 adds collaboration features. Any.do has unveied version 3.0 of its app for iPhone, Android, Web, Chrome and Mac, which is shipping with no less than 150 new features and now comes with specific support for Android tablet users. It’s offering a new dynamic zooming feature that will let you look across a group of to-do lists, and then quickly move in to look at one in particular. Of course, you could in the past navigate from one to the other in a master list, but here Any.do has played on the idea of fluid gestures to speed up access. Another multitasking feature it’s adding is the ability to collaborate with more than one kind of group. Other would-be productivity app rivals like Evernote years ago incorporated the idea of having a single identity for yourself that can be used to access and interact with business and personal documents in its app. That’s essentially what Any.do is adding here, with the ability to share a list as a “side project,” work teams, or with people you live with, with those who share then given access to edit the lists as needed.
31.10.14. Task manager Any.do rolls out business version with collaboration features. Productivity service Any.do is expanding beyond its earlier consumer focus with a new set of features – and pricing plans – aimed at businesses. In the Any.do 2.0 release out today, colleagues and teams can now use Any.do’s task list application to collaborate on tasks, share files and more. These more advanced features will be available in both Any.do 2.0 free and Any.do 2.0 Premium, the latter which will be a subscription-based service costing $5/month or $45/year. Free users will be able to collaborate with 2 members per task, while paid users can collaborate with as many people as they wish. Meanwhile, free users are limited to file uploads of 5 MB max from Dropbox and sharing 5 “Moments” (Any.do’s daily planner) per month, while paid users have no such restrictions.
20.10.14. Wunderlist gets Calendar Feed, Dropbox integration. Task management service Wunderlist added several new features during recent weeks. Thanks to its latest integrations, you can now get the big picture of all your to-dos with a due date, in your calendar of choice. The Wunderlist Calendar Feed Calendar Feed works with Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar and iCal. Another new useful feature - is Dropbox integration. Your Dropbox files can now sit right alongside your to-dos in Wunderlist, so any file you work on can now be kept in one place.
02.08.14. Wunderlist gets real-time sync and public lists . Popular to-do list app Wunderlist now wants to become the world’s home for lists. It made possible to share lists through social media (Twitter, Facebook and Google+), send as messages and embed them into webpages. When someone clicks on the link for a shared list, they are taken to a mini-site that allows importing into users’ Wunderlist apps; obviously this is partly intended to introduce a viral effect. Besides Wunderlist is planning to release new API in the coming weeks in the hopes to connect with third party apps like Dropbox or Evernote. The second main new feature is real-time sync. Before, items could only refresh every 15 minutes or when prompted. Now the real time integration allows users to collaborate immediately with others on different lists.
31.05.14. Any.do unveils a browser-version of its to-do list app. Mobile task list Any.do has now released a free browser-based Web application, which syncs across devices. The Web version includes modes for users to see tasks in one column or across all folders at once. If you've used Any.Do's mobile apps, everything here should feel pretty familiar. The goal is to make your task list accessible from anywhere, and the web obviously plays a crucial part in that strategy. When you launch the new web experience, you'll see a list of tasks waiting to be completed. But thankfully there's more to be discovered; Any.Do has built in two modes that take advantage of the fact that you're using a full web browser with plenty of room on screen.
2012. Wunderlist 2 goes native, adds many new features. The personal productivity service Wunderlist 2 is now available on desktops and iOS devices as a native app. The biggest new feature is a new detail view. By double-clicking (or tapping) on a to-do item, a view moves in from the right that allows you to add lots of detail, like a due date, specific timed reminders, extra subtasks, or a full notes system. This is where much of Wunderlist 2's functionality is hidden. The original version was relatively simple, even as to-do apps go, and the extra details here make the app a very powerful piece of productivity software. The fact that all of this information is synced almost instantly in the cloud makes it even more helpful. You can set up some very complicated tasks and reminders on the desktop, and then browse through them or receive notifications while out and about on your mobile device.
