Microsoft will definitively stop the Wunderlist task app on 6 May 2020, the company announced on its blog on Monday. Founder Christian Reber tried to save the app from this fate by indicating that he wanted to buy back Wunderlist, but that attempt could not save the app.
In 2015 Microsoft announced that it had acquired the company behind Wunderlist. Two years later, the company announced To Do: an app that eventually had to completely replace Wunderlist.
Wunderlist founder Reber spoke out in September against Microsoft's intention to fully write off the app. He publicly called on the company to have him buy the app back. Whether serious conversations have taken place before that is not clear.
Microsoft is calling on Wunderlist users to transfer their data to To Do. Users can continue to use the app until May, but from that moment the app is no longer supported.
