Microsoft acquired Wunderlist earlier this year, and now the cross-platform task-management app has received a mammoth update to make it work seamlessly with Windows 10. Here are more details.
Wunderlist is one of the best cross-platform task-management apps around, and this is probably the reason that convinced Nadella and his team that they need to bag it.
Now that the app is officially being developed by Microsoft, a very important update has been rolled out to the app on the Windows Store, thus making it fully compatible with Windows 10. Here’s how the official changelog looks like:
Welcome to a brand new design for Wunderlist. What does that mean for you? Well, on Wunderlist for Windows 10 your to-dos are easier to read and our backgrounds are now crystal clear, so you can fully appreciate the cute puppy background. We’ve also improved accessibility with better keyboard support and high contrast themes.
Cortana adds your to-dos to your Wunderlist for you! You know that moment when you’re working away on a tight deadline and suddenly you realize you forgot to send your Mom a birthday card? Now, no matter what app you’re in or if you’re on your PC, you can just say “Hey Cortana, add ‘send Mom some flowers tomorrow’ to my Wunderlist.” We can’t promise to send them to her (yet!) but you’ll now find a to-do waiting for you in your Inbox and our Smart Due Dates will automatically add a Due Date and Reminder for you. Now you can get back to hitting that deadline.
Wunderlist adapts to the way you work. Whether you like to keep everything in separate Windows on your desktop, immerse yourself in full-screen mode, snap Wunderlist to the side while you multitask, or stay productive on the go using tablet mode—Wunderlist for Windows 10 does it all.
Keep an eye on your most most-important lists by pinning them to Start. Simply right-click or long-tap a list within and then select “Pin to Start”.
The app has an average customer rating of 4 out of 5 stars from 1,514 ratings, with many users complaining about various bugs but also problems in Windows 10. This new update is most likely bringing some other stability improvements, as well, so go ahead and give it a try and let us know what you think of it.
