iPhone/iPod touch only: Popular to-do list manager Remember The Milk has officially hit the iTunes App Store as a native application for your iPhone or iPod touch. Just like the web site, the application is lightning fast and simple to use but packs in some impressive features, including bi-directional sync, offline task editing, and even location awareness for sorting nearby tasks. The catch: In order to use RTM for iPhone, you'll need to have signed up for a $US25/year pro account. Remember The Milk is a free download from the iTunes App Store.

Remember The Milk

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


A good task manager is something that could make Windows Vista's somewhat unfairly maligned sidebar feature pretty useful—and Remember the Milk just so happens to be a pretty good task manager. Blogger Mark Godwin details how to turn the task manager's iGoogle gadget into a sidebar tool you can size any way you want. We've previously shown how to plant web gadgets into the sidebar with the Amnesty Generator, but Godwin's technique requires only a simple sidebar gadget installation, and it's time well spent. Got your own web-to-Vista gadget tweak to brag about? Tell us in the comments.

Firefox with Greasemonkey: The Remember The Milk Cow in Google Reader Greasemonkey script integrates web-based to-do list application Remember the Milk with popular newsreader Google Reader. After installing the user script and reload Google Reader, you'll notice RTM's cow-head icon next to items in Google Reader. Clicking the link opens a RTM mobile window with the item's title, the URL for the post, and a default tag ('website') already filled in. This handy little addition to Google Reader makes it easy to create a to-do or reminder from something you just read, and if you're already using the previously mentioned RTM in Gmail extension, you're Google account just integrated that much more with your to-do list. Thanks wavetheory!

Windows/Mac/Linux: Free application RTM Notifier periodically checks in with popular to-do list web site Remember the Milk and displays notifications for time-sensitive tasks. The goal of the application is two-fold: On one level, it's just a notification tool, displaying pop-up alerts for due tasks. Beyond that, it's a desktop entry point for your RTM tasks. Both features could be improved upon (especially since RTM has an open API), but if you manage all your to-dos with RTM, it might be worth checking out. RTM Notifier is a free download, requires Adobe AIR.
