Microsoft’s Project Cheshire Heads To Private Beta

Microsoft is working on a new to-do style app that is currently called Project Cheshire. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because I got my hands on the app back in June and now the product is now part of a private beta.

Since its first unveiling, the app has been updated and has a bit more polish to it than what we saw previously. Also, there are iOS and Android apps and the Windows 10 desktop app is UWP too.

The app allows you to quickly set reminders and also offers up suggestions about what may be important to you as well in a simple interface. As you would expect, all items sync across the different iterations of the app.

What’s interesting about this app, aside from that fact that it is barebones and doesn’t really have any compelling feature, is that the company recently purchased Wunderlist. That app is another to-do style application that had 13 million active users, at the time of acquisition, and does the exact same thing as this application does but much more elegantly. Of course, this could be an early version of the next update to Wunderlist but why they would tear it down to rebuild it seems a bit foolish.

Posted below is a gallery of the new app but there is no word on when it will be released.

Thanks for the tip anon!
