Microsoft acquires 6Wunderkinder
The 6Wunderkinder team launched Wunderlist about five years ago and now they are joining the Microsoft family. According to the Redmond giant, they purchased the company behind this popular to-do list app "to reinvent productivity for a mobile-first, cloud-first world," not long after taking over Sunrise and Acompli, both from the same area of the market as Wunderlist.
Wunderlist currently has more than 13 million customers and The Verge ranked it as the best to-do list app last year. For the time being, things will not change. "Our team in Berlin will continue to build and deliver you Wunderlist, Wunderlist Pro and Wunderlist for Business across all platforms–iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, Android, Windows Phone, Windows and the Web," reads the message about the acquisition on the Wunderlist blog. Prices will remain unchanged "and the service will continue to support a wide range of third-party apps and integrated services," writes Microsoft OneNote General Manager Eran Megiddo.
More than the above, Wunderlist promises to add more features in the next few months and to continue its expansion. There is no doubt that Microsoft will add at least some of Wunderlist's capabilities to their products in the future, but remains to see how and when will that happen.
