Welcome to 'Paul's App of the Day', where I pick one of my favourite apps as featured app of the day! Today's app is...

Astrid

What they say

Astrid is the highly-acclaimed open-source task list that is simple enough to not get in your way, powerful enough to help you get stuff done! Tags, reminders, RememberTheMilk sync, Locale plug-in & more!

What we say

Now, I wouldn't say i'm a disorganised person, just a busy person... which means I need to keep a task list in order to remember what I need to be working on and when. On the web, i'm quite a fan of RememberTheMilk but I also need a client on my device where I can quickly jot things down... and that's where Astrid comes in. Now, RememberTheMilk have their own official client for Android, which is free, but it needs a paid / Pro RTM account to work. Astrid is a bit clever - it can connect to RTM even if you have a standard account... which means a completely free solution! :( While it might not be quite as shiny as the official app, it is feature packed, can be used without RTM sync if desired and performs all the task management functions you could need quite admirably!

Just a heads up, I've had word from the developer they will be splitting to a free and paid app. Some features will be removed for the free app :( They say it will be in the region of 3.99, which is still good value for such a great app.

My review -

I use Dato GTasks (0.4.2, latest) which is free and syncs with Google Tasks :(

It syncs with Google Tasks and is offline too :(

You can pay from what i can see that removes ads :P

it also has two widgets (2x2 & 4x2)

which can be black/green/blue/yellow & white

Agenda Widget also pulls info using this app too which is what i use :P

Just thought i'd share B)

It does reminders but it doesn't appear to do repeats. I'm not sure if that's a limitation of the app or Google Tasks it's self....

I must admit that I tried Astrid and it was too much for my task needs.

Just like bewA I'm using GTasks now, and fully satisfied with that: especially with the Gmail integration.

I'd like to use google tasks but I like to sync with outlook tasks atm. I like this free program:

You can also get a RTM addin for gmail

Can anyone else get gtasks syncing with outlook?
