Microsoft clarified that the To-Do list application can be used for those with Microsoft accounts and not only those with a Office 365 subscription.

The feature works with the Microsoft Authenticator app for Android and iOS (no Windows phone version yet), and it's pretty easy to set up.

The added support for Android, iOS and Mac platforms bolsters this feature.

Called "Microsoft To-Do", the app was designed by the team behind Wunderlist, which Microsoft purchased in June of 2015. The list is created by the way you use the app. Text is crisp and clear and colors are pleasant tones. As Microsoft explains it, you'll also be able to review to-do's from the day before as well as view what's due and other upcoming tasks, via this feature.

We probably all knew that Microsoft was going to release a to-do list productivity app because it was one of the things missing from among its whole app lineup.


Although the app is very simple overall, one key feature that makes it stand out is Intelligent Suggestions. As far as I can tell this means that each day you start with a clean slate and the app suggests which tasks in your list would be good to make a start on today. You will have the ability to customize each of the lists with a colorful theme, making it easier for you to distinguish between different notes. Unlock your phone, tap "Approve", and you're in. This option is found on the Suggestions interface of the app that also presents overdue tasks and recommended items based on the users' daily activities. The company plans to integrate with more services, and once the preview period is well underway, Wunderlist will be retired.

Click "import" and you'll be redirected to another page. It's built by the same team who worked on Wunderlist, Microsoft says, and it's a direct replacement: "Once we are confident that we have incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do, we will retire Wunderlist".

Where previously Microsoft's Authenticator software would act as a second authentication factor after the password, the new system does away with the password altogether.

One major difference between Wunderlist and Microsoft To-Do is that the new service will only be available to Office 365 subscribers and not as a stand alone to-do app/service.

To-Do offers all the security you would expect from cloud-based Office 365, including encryption.
