Astrid shuts down August 5th


When Astrid, a task management service, was acquired by Yahoo back in May, the company said it would close its doors within 90 days. Yesterday, Astrid got a bit more specific and told consumers it would be closing on August 5th.

Astrid was kind enough to leave its users with a nice letter and alternative suggestions about where they could take their business. Click to read more to view the entirety of this article and the letter or, if you’ve already done so, scroll down just a bit.

Astrid close

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.

Best regards,

Jon Paris & the Astrid Team
