The Astrid task management service, which was purchased by Yahoo! back in May, has officially announced it will be shutting down on August 5th. Through an email to all of their users, the Astrid staff let them know that they have a month to back up all of their data, and gave instructions to head to a special data export page, and make an easy migration to services such as Wrike, Wunderlist, Sandglaz, and Any.do. The Astrid app has become extremely popular, with over 4 million downloads, so there are surely going to be some pretty unhappy people come August 5th. Check out the full email from the Astrid staff after the break. Happy exporting, folks!
Astrid Winding Down
First off, we want to sincerely thank you for being an Astrid user over the years. Your support every step of the way has meant the world to us. As of August 5, 2013, we will be closing the Astrid service.
We know that a transition can be tough, but we want to make it as easy as possible for you. Please go to this link: astrid.com/home/export to download your data.
Once you have your data, we recommend you check out one of these applications. They will allow you to easily import your data, so you can pick up where you left off: Wrike, Wunderlist, Sandglaz, and Any.do.
When we built Astrid, we sought to help as many people as possible become happier, healthier and more productive – and we certainly hope we helped you. Thank you again for your support.
