Reber added that he had nothing but gratitude for Microsoft and that he was just sad. Wunderlist does not go according to plan.
This is a thorny situation for Microsoft. Wunderlist's cloud features are still running on Amazon's web services instead of Azure's, The Verge noted, but Microsoft can't easily pull the plug after saying it will shut down Wunderlist only once when To -To have even parity of characteristics.

Although there is no indication that Microsoft is on track to take Reber's request, it does illustrate the mixed results of the company's acquisition of enterprise applications.
