Brushing all acquisition rumours aside, Microsoft has today confirmed that it has acquired 6Wunderkinder, the Berlin-based company which is behind the insanely popular to-do list app, Wunderlist. And while Microsoft has obviously not revealed the financials, WSJ reported earlier this morning, that the deal is somewhere in between $100-$200 Million.

Announced by OneNote’s Genemral Manager Eran Megiddo, Microsoft says that addition of Wunderlist to the Microsoft product portfolio “fits squarely with its ambition to reinvent productivity for a mobile-first, cloud-first world”.

Megiddo also explained how Microsoft’s current streak of acquisitions, which includes that of Sunrise and Accompli, demonstrates the software giant’s “commitment to delivering market leading mobile apps across platforms” to its large consumer base.

Wunderlist, as of today, boasts of a staggering 13 Million+ downloads who have collectively created more than 1 billion to-dos using its platform.

Customers can expect the app to remain free in all of its existing markets. There will be no price changes for Wunderlist Pro or Wunderlist for Business customers and the service will continue to support a wide range of third-party apps and integrated services.

6Wunderkinder Founder and CEO Christian Reber says that his 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. Reber will continue to lead the team and product strategy.
