Christian Reber, founder and CEO of Wunderlist’s parent company 6wunderkinder, made the announcement on the company’s blog that he and his team would be joining Microsoft. After reaching over 13 million users in the five years that the app has been available, Reber went on to explain that “Our aspirations are much bigger. Joining Microsoft gives us access to a massive wealth of expertise, technology and people that a small company like us could only dream of amassing on its own.”
Fans of the app can rest assured that Wunderlist will continue to see active development. The range of apps will continue to see new features and improvements added and the Wunderlist staff will still hold onto their German roots as the company’s Berlin office will still be used for the app’s development.
Wunderlist is just one of the many popular productivity apps to have been acquired by Microsoft in the last several months.
