Astrid Winding Down


I received this email in the morning. I was using Astrid for some time now and I really liked its interface. After gmail, it was one of the most usable online tools that I came across. Sadly, it seems that the tool was so good that it was bought by Yahoo so that its engineers can try to breathe life into Yahoo.

Hi Ashwin,
Once again, we want to sincerely thank you for being an Astrid user over the years. We want to remind you that as of August 5, 2013, the Astrid service will be closing and Astrid.com will no longer be available.

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.

Best regards,
Jon Paris & the Astrid Team
