Microsoft wants to make your daily routine a little easier. The company bought to-do list app developer Wunderlist in 2015, and is now developing a new app — code-named Project Cheshire. That app is now in the private beta-testing phase, and while not too much is known about it, we now have screenshots showing it in use.
The app will reportedly be available for Android, iOS, and Windows 10, and the screenshots were shown off by blog Thurrott.com. While the app’s existence was known before this, we now know a little more about what it looks like.
The images show a pretty basic user interface, which lets users create lists, set reminders for those lists, and sync the lists to different platforms. Based on the images, it doesn’t seem as though the app offers more than an app like Google Keep.
The app is also listed on the Microsoft Store under “Project Cheshire,” along with a description about what the app has to offer.
“Say hello to Project Cheshire. Introducing a brand new and simple, yet incredibly focused, to-do app that helps you get stuff done,” says the listing. “Please note that we are still in the early stages of development and are working hard in the background to deliver you the best to-do app ever. Stay tuned for updates and more here.”
According to a report from TechCrunch, while the app is listed on the Microsoft Store, those who downloaded it were simply greeted with a black screen with the words “Coming soon,” so it seems as though the listing is a little premature. It also seems as though only corporate account holders can access the app, which could signal that it is more focused on the business market than the consumer market.
