Astrid announces that it’s shutting down on August 5
It’s been two months since Yahoo announced its acquisition of popular task management service Astrid, and like after every acquisition by a major company, we began to wonder when Astrid would find itself on the chopping block.
Astrid’s doomsday has finally been set after emails began to roll out to notify users that it would cease to exist from August 5th and onwards. That means you’ll lose all your data unless you head over to the dedicated export page, so that you can export your data.
The Astrid team have also been helpful enough to offer a few alternatives like Wrike, Wunderlist, Sandglaz, and Any.do (some have even set up dedicated web pages for Astrid users, links are in the source below), allowing you to easily import your data, ensuring that your transition from Astrid is a smooth one.
Unfortunately for those who enjoy the service (like myself), they’ll have to find other alternatives to stay productive.
Have you found an alternative to Astrid yet?
