Microsoft’s new to do checklist app, Challenge Cheshire, noticed within the wild


Though Microsoft purchased to-do checklist app maker Wunderlist again in 2015, the corporate has been engaged on one other to checklist app expertise, code-named Challenge Wunderlist, which is now in personal beta testing. Not a lot is thought about Microsoft’s intentions with its new app, however based on a report out right this moment, this easy to do checklist app will quickly be accessible on iOS, Android and on Home windows 10.

The app’s existence was beforehand identified, however a new report from the weblog has a few of the first screenshots of what the app seems like in motion.

In keeping with the submit, Challenge Cheshire has progressed to beta testing and has been up to date with a bit extra polish than when it was first noticed earlier this yr. However it’s nonetheless not very spectacular, at first look.

The pictures present a reasonably naked bones to do checklist software that allows you to create lists, add objects, set reminders, and sync your lists throughout platforms. You may also theme the lists with a primary colour picker, and a collection of moderately boring banner photos. The one attention-grabbing function, actually, is that the app also can recommend duties so as to add to your checklist. Nevertheless, it’s unclear the place this info is pulled from.

The app itself is already reside right here on the Home windows App Retailer as “Challenge Cheshire,” the place it’s described as a “model new and easy, but extremely centered to-do app that helps you get issues performed.” The outline additionally notes that the app is within the early levels of improvement.

Those that have been lately in a position to obtain the app to their machine stated they couldn’t truly use it  – it was displaying solely a clean display screen and the message “coming quickly.” One person additionally identified that solely company account holders can at present use the app.

This might suggest Microsoft is intending this new app extra for enterprise use, whereas Wunderlist may stay extra consumer-facing. It might additionally make sense if Microsoft was working to develop its personal counterpart to Google’s Preserve app, and even an upgraded Outlook Duties expertise which broke out your to-do’s into their very own standalone app.

That being stated, whereas the app doesn’t seem like Wunderlist, that firm’s know-how might nonetheless be below the hood in Challenge Cheshire – and the person interface is merely a recent coat of paint on high of the Wunderlist backend.

We’ve requested Microsoft for extra details about Challenge Cheshire and its standing, and can replace if the corporate presents a remark.
