Microsoft reportedly purchases Wunderlist developer 6 Wunderkinder

Microsoft has scooped up the developer behind yet another popular iOS app. According to The Wall Street Journal, the company has purchased Wunderlist developer 6 Wunderkinder. The purchase price was somewhere between $100 million to $200 million.

If the report is correct, it’s unknown what will happen to the cross-platform task management service. After purchasing Accompli in late 2014, Microsoft quickly removed it from the App Store and then released the revamped Outlook email app. But the tech giant has continued to allow another app that it acquired, Sunrise Calendar, to remain untouched after purchasing its developer in February.

Interestingly, last week Wunderlist announced a nice integration with Sunrise Calendar that allows users to manage and add tasks directly from their calendar.

You can download Wunderlist now on the App Store for free. It’s a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini.

With an in-app purchase of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, you can unlock a Pro subscription. Some of those benefits include unlimited file uploads and the ability for unlimited to-do assignment.

Earlier today, the Wunderlist app itself received a nice update. Along with improving the Apple Watch glance, the update increased accessibility for visually impaired users.
