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...
What they say
What we 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!
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!
