Toodledo, a web-based task manager that's friendly to Getting Things Done adherents or anyone looking for a serious but customisable reminder setup, adds a Gmail gadget to its arsenal of tools that let you track your to-dos anywhere you're looking.
Toodledo was already available on iGoogle start pages and Google Calendar, so a Gmail gadget closes the loop for Google app fans.
The gadget can't, unfortunately, directly create new tasks out of the emails you're running through—that remains a unique feature of Google's own Gmail Labs task manager. But if you're used to Toodledo's creation system, or Google's tasks tool is a bit too simplistic for your needs, this new gadget should fit right into your work flow. Free to use, requires a free Toodledo account to use in the sidebar. Hit the link below for installation instructions.
