Wunderlist users are not impressed with Microsoft's replacement, To-Do

Outlook tasks were a bit hidden on Windows Phone 8.1 but they were perfectly usable

If you've been using Microsoft products for your productivity and work essentials, then you've probably tried out Groups to make life easier when you collaborate with teammates.

In the coming months, we'll bring more of the favorite elements of Wunderlist into the To-Do experience, adding features such as list sharing, apps for Mac, iPad and Android tablet, as well as additional integrations with other Microsoft services. The Windows giant also added that it will not shut down the Wunderlist app until it will incorporate the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.

And, yes, this works in reverse: You can you set reminders on your Windows 10 PC (either through the Calendar app or Cortana) that will show up on your Android device via the Cortana app. There is an intelligent Suggestions feature that provides you automated suggestions based on the upcoming items or your old lists. Unlock your phone, tap "Approve", and you are in.

This new app, called Microsoft To Do, is all about helping you organize your daily life. The app is built on Office 365 and you can integrate with Outlook and other platforms. Hence, you can synchronize with To-Do and access and manage it from different devices. But Microsoft promises to soon add all the features of Wunderlist into the To-Do and provide us an enhanced version. So if the list was created on an Android smartphone, it can be checked from an iPhone or Windows PC.

But early reviews for the app suggest that for some people Wunderlist was just fine.

Currently, there are certain fallbacks in the To-do app and is not a flawless replacement yet for the Wunderlist users. If you find yourself in a similar situation, head on over and share your wisdom with the community.

Microsoft released an Android version of Microsoft Solitaire Collection that has all these features.

The only positive here is that Microsoft could be playing down the hype for an all-new phone and the closure of the Lumia 950 XL services may be a move to prepare for the development of a brand new flagship. These resources are automatically provisioned when a group is created, as described in this Microsoft support document. We look forward to making To-Do even more useful, intuitive and personal.
