    Microsoft's To-Do Preview has been publicly available for a couple of weeks. Many users have been "wundering" just how To-Do stacks up to its source of inspiration, Wunderlist. We have answers.
    On April 19, Microsoft unleashed a preview of its new task management app, aptly named To-Do. It was stated by Ori Artman, General Manager of Microsoft To-Do, that Wunderlist, a task management powerhouse, would eventually be retired. This, of course, will take place once Microsoft is confident that it has baked all of what Wunderlist has to offer into To-Do.
    In its fledgling state, Microsoft's To-Do app is an effective and no-nonsense way to capture and review everything that you need (or want) to do. It has been referred to as a simplified version of Wunderlist. It provides a very personal and fluid feel to creating and sorting to-dos.
    Why would Microsoft build something similar to Wunderlist yet limited? If a functionally identical app already exists but also has additional features, why should a user switch? The key word to keep in mind is "preview." This early app shows at its core what it can do, but it's not showing what it will eventually be capable of.
    The first version of Wunderlist was published in 2011. In 2015, Microsoft acquired Wunderlist creator 6Wunderkinder for between $100 million and $200 million. The Wunderlist team then developed another multi-platform task management app we know as To-Do. Maybe they wanted to start with a clean slate, rather than rebranding an existing service. With new and upcoming Office 365 integration, it makes sense to create a standalone product separate from a popular application. To-Do's name and icon may change in the future as well. Perhaps this is a way of testing a revamped Wunderlist.

    So where does To-Do stand in comparison to Wunderlist?
