There is no turning point for Wunderlist fans, as on Wednesday, it is going to die. But don’t worry, there are great services ready to replace it. All you need is to give a try to other apps on the list.

It can’t be shocking news for you, as Microsoft has announced the decision to stop Wunderlist work last December. After they bought the parent company of Wunderlist, 6Wunderkinder, it was just a matter of time when they come out with their own product. This is how the app that contains multiple features of Wunderlist, To Do appeared.

It syncs with almost all mobile and computer devices, works as a browser extension, and is compatible with Dropbox and Google Calendar. If you need to save the goals into your notes, you can use Todoist as well. There are stats that reveal your productivity during a week.

Use the importing tool from Todoist to get to the Wunderlist services. Simply authorize yourself in the account and start transferring the data. You will be able to import all your previous projects, files, reminders, notes, and tasks. The app is free of charge and works flawlessly on both mobile platforms.
