Microsoft acquires 6Wunderkinder

Microsoft has announced the acquisition of 6Wunderkinder, the creator of the to-do list app, Wunderlust.

Wunderlist is an innovative to-do list app that makes it easy way for people to capture, organize and collaborate on lists and to-dos – personally and professionally.

Through this acquisition, Microsoft aims to deliver mobile apps across the platforms and devices in this mobile-first, cloud-first world and help users achieve more across all platforms and devices.


Customers can expect the app to remain free in all of its existing markets. There will be no price changes for Wunderlist Pro or Wunderlist for Business customers and the service will continue to support third-party apps and integrated services.

In December last year, Microsoft acquired email app Acompli.

The Accompli app sorts out user’s inbox, giving priority to the messages that may be the most important. It combines this with filters and other features which gives users control of their mail.

In February this year, the company also acquired the mobile calendar application Sunrise in a deal reported to be valued about $100 million.

Sunrise supports a number of features including recurring appointments, alerts, birthdays, Google Maps directions, and more. Sunrise currently supports Gmail accounts and Facebook events / birthdays from the social network.
