Remember The Milk: Task Management Tool

We’re a great fan of this free reminder and task management service. Remember The Milk lets you create “to do” lists and then set up alerts so you don’t forget, whether that’s for a dental appointment, business meeting, shopping trip, or otherwise. Available for mobile and desktop.

The service allows you to set up and manage tasks from virtually anywhere. After configuration, which is a simple process, you can receive reminders either by e-mail, instant messenger or SMS (text message). You can also share tasks with family and friends, manage tasks offline, and integrate with Google Calendar. After a while of using Remember The Milk, you may wonder how you ever lived without it.

The priority system used to rank tasks is excellent and ensures important ones are highlighted more prominently. Adding appointments to the service can either be done manually or (in the case of Apple users), by using Siri. Integration is available with the popular Evernote app, so you can nominate Remember The Milk to manage your Evernote tasks, too. Aside from the standard Web version, this service also has a number of apps for Android, Apple and BlackBerry.

A “Pro” version is available and includes even more useful features. Overall, this is a great service and ideal for anyone who needs to manage tasks, whether that’s for business or everyday life.
