wunderlist is a cross-platform free to-do list manager

wunderlist is a minimalistic, pretty to-do list manager. Here's a quick rundown of what it can and can't do: Pros: Looks: It looks quite pretty. You can change the background, and it's generally just lovely. Simplicity: That can also be considered a bad thing, I guess, but wunderlist is very simple. There are no nested tasks, for example. Multiple lists: You can easily create extra lists...

pleasnotify.me lets you quickly assign tasks over email, spam random people

pleasnotify.me is a fairly straightforward Web app: You fill in a quick form with the recipient's address, a task, a due date, and your address. The email is sent out, and the recipient is supposed to reply by the time the task is done. On the surface, all is well and fine. I mean, it's not the most original application in the history of the universe, but it's okay. But when you stop and think...

Google now taking suggestions for improving Tasks

Google seems to be aiming at making Tasks into a ubiquitous tasklist, available anywhere and easy to use. This is one of the few niches where a non-Google tool has the upper hand – in this case, Remember the Milk is the leader of the pack, at least for now. Google's engineers know what they have to do to make Tasks into a smash hit: give users what they want! To make that happen, they've...

Comment follow-up: TaskForce turns your workday into a game

When I marveled at Daily Todo, reader ViaTorci recommended TaskForce, a similarly minimalistic application for managing a single day's workload. This is one of the coolest recommendations that I've received via a comment. You don't need an account; you just enter your name, and then enter a task along with an estimated duration. A timer starts counting down, and then you go and do the task. Your...

Remember the Milk task manager exits beta in meaningless gesture

Four years after the service opened to the public, popular web-based task manager Remember The Milk is finally out of beta. What does that mean? Nothing really. The company isn't going to start charging for access to its core services. And the developers aren't done adding and refining features. It's just that after four years, the Remember The Milk team decided the product was probably robust...

Remember The Milk released for Android (if you're a Pro subscriber)

Remember The Milk have released their new client for Android devices in the Android Market. Available as a free download, the client does require the user to have a 'Pro' account, which is priced at $25 per year.

WizeHive: Collaboration tool for busy people

Because I work almost exclusively in remote-based teams, I'm always looking for new tools and services that can help me manage my daily tasks and effectively collaborate with my team members. One of the biggest problems I have with some collaboration systems is that they require everyone to login and collaborate using the web app itself. This is great if you are always in one place or in a...
