The Berlin-based company behind the Wunderlist to-do app has been purchased by Microsoft . Redmond reportedly agreed to buy 6Wunderkinder GmbH for between $100 million and $200 million.
The purchase will indeed bring Microsoft something it lacks, namely mobile task management capability.
"Microsoft Project is a very heavyweight solution, geared toward large teams and complex project planning, and is not targeted to individual or small team use," said Stowe,managing director of research and analyst firm workfutures. "Although Project is integrated with Office as Project Online, it doesn't really solve the need for lighter weight task management, and is definitely not a 'mobile first, people first' product, which Wunderlist is, with very popular iOS and Android apps."
I personally would like to see this integrated with SharePoint and Project Server Task Management.
