Mario Sundar's Speakeasy

Spero Ventures. Early LinkedIn, Twitter. These are my thoughts on tech, brand, marketing and community.

RTM is the best task manager ever. Period.

The secret to Remember the Milk (RTM)’s extreme effectiveness as a task manager is its ability to be wherever you are on the web. Gmail. Check. Firefox. Check. iPhone. Check. All three places I absolutely need a task manager on. Most recently, RTM released their native iPhone app and they just nailed it!

Lifehacker does a comparison of five online task managers, but my $0.02 based on my experience using RTM is that it is incomparable. Here are some features of their newly released iPhone app:

  • Pricing: Free to download, but access requires $25/year Pro account (which also grants access to Windows Mobile/Blackberry app).
  • Task options: Multiple lists, priorities, due dates, tags, repeating tasks, time estimates, location, URL, and notes.
  • Organization: Today/Tomorrow/This Week lists, a multi-list view, and sorting by tags or location.
  • Other features:Can use location awareness to find tasks closest to you; search function; home screen icon updates with tasks due today.
  • Web syncing?: Yes.

But truly, the killer feature of RTM’s native iPhone app is that it allows you to update your lists even when you’re not on Wi-fi and it’d be synced up once connected to the web. Priceless!
