Today’s best apps and services for search, email, music streaming and to-do management weren’t always number one. Some of the apps we loved a long time ago are still out there, updating, adding features and keeping their fans happy even if they don’t have what it takes to thrill tech bloggers or stay in the limelight. Here are a few of those old dogs you may remember, and some of the new tricks that make them worth a fresh look.
Android: GTD-style to-do manager Remember The Milk announced a major update to its Android app today, including an overhauled interface with new features and a free version of the app with basic features for all users.
Windows only: Remember the Milk is a powerful task manager, but most office work puts Outlook in front of you. Now you can bridge your Outlook and RTM tasks with MilkSync, a free download for RTM Pro customers (and 15-day trial for everyone else).
Popular to-do list application Remember The Milk is releasing their iPhone app for free to all users. And yes, there is a catch.
It’s great that your to-do list manager can set tags, due dates and locations to your important tasks. Make it even better by having it show you the tasks that have slipped by or gone without due dates or labels.
If you’re a big fan of Remember the Milk for basic to-do lists and location-aware reminders, you’ll be pleased to see how easily you can tweak it to contain your entire GTD workflow.
