Back in May, there were rumors about Microsoft acquiring 6Wunderkinder, the developer of popular to-do list app, Wunderlist. Just yesterday, the WSJ reported that the company has acquired 6Wunderkinder for $100-$200 million. Today, Microsoft and 6Wunderkinder officially announced the acquisition. 6Wunderkinder stated:
“So what will change for you? Nothing right now. Our team in Berlin will continue to build and deliver you Wunderlist, Wunderlist Pro and Wunderlist for Business across all platforms–iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, Android, Windows Phone, Windows and the Web. I will continue to lead the team and product strategy, because that’s what I love the most–building great products that help individuals and businesses get stuff done in the simplest and most intuitive way possible.”
According to 6Wunderkinder’s statement, there isn’t any change coming to its service right now. As expected, there isn’t any info on what’s expected for the future from any of the two companies just yet. However, our guess is that Microsoft is planning to integrate Wunderlist’s features into OneNote. What do you think of the acquisition? Discuss in the comment section below!
