Microsoft is always testing new apps and services internally. One of the company’s latest projects is Project Cheshire, which was leaked just a little while ago. Currently, the app only shows a “coming soon” message when you open it up. However, we got our hands-on an internal version of the app, and we were able to try out the company’s upcoming app.

So what is Project Cheshire? It’s a to-do list app for Windows 10 devices which allows users to stay productive by keeping track of some tasks they need to do. Of course, Microsoft already owns Wunderlist, which is also a to-do list app — so it’s quite interesting to see Microsoft building another to-do list app. It is worth noting that this app could potentially be related to Wunderlist, but we’ll have a better picture in the coming months.

Project Cheshire includes all the basic tasks: you can add new tasks, create a new project/to-do list, and the ability to sync to-do lists between devices (via Microsoft Account). Here are some screenshots of the app on PC:

And here are some screenshots of the app on Mobile devices:

As Microsoft cited, the app is still in its early stage of developments, so it is missing some important features such as the ability to share a to-do list or add a contributor. Hopefully, Microsoft will add these features when the app is officially released. Until then, let us know what you think of Project Cheshire in the comment section below.
