  • Seamless GSuite integration
  • Simple, easy to use, not too complicated or too much going on
  • Ability to directly utilize within apps where tasks are most likely to be created (email, calendar, etc.)
  • Limited in scope and customization
  • Not really a great stand-alone app for use with ioS so lack of integration with iphone makes it clunky and not very often used when not as desktop
  • Support and helpdesk very limited like many of Google products

  • Tight integration with Gmail.
  • First-party integration with Google Calendar.
  • Simple and straightforward interface.
  • Lack of power user features and customizations for GTD fanatics.
  • Lack of well-designed native iPhone/Mac apps.
  • Works best only if you use Gmail and Google Calendar in a browser.

  • Time management: Being automatically reminded of recurring tasks means we are less likely to forget.
  • Ensuring project dependencies are noted and addressed.
  • Task nesting: We can build a task tree easily and view it from within most of Google's apps.
  • Reminders: Right now one must manually check their tasks pane to see what needs to be done. When things get busy we may forget to check this.
  • Linking to docs inside Drive would be much appreciated as we often have to perform updates inside project-related files.
  • Task sharing is nonexistent. It would be good if we can collaborate with others on larger tasks and see what still needs to be done in the context of larger projects.

  • The best part, Google Tasks is FREE. No paywall, no ads. Just pure productivity. I was looking for some task-management app which is free, since it was difficult to get a paid one. I found that this was the perfect solution for me.
  • It's deeply integrated with other Google services like Gmail and Calendar. It can pick tasks with Gmail from emails, in the form of suggestions. It's up to you, completely. The tasks will appear in your calendar automatically, if it's time or date specific.
  • It's simple and hassle free to insert tasks and complete them. The app loads fast and hardly faces any crash. I encountered no such crashes.
  • It is present in multiple platforms. I would create a task in my phone, and would check it off on my laptop.
  • It's hassle free to add and check off tasks. It was very helpful for me in college.
  • Google Tasks lack support. If you encounter any problem, you just have the option to provide feedback. Since the team may receive a lot of feedbacks, they simply don't answer.
  • Although it contains the essentials of a task-management app, there are still lots of features that can be implemented. Like, ability to specify time taken, setting priority in a more detailed way, and lots more.
  • The app is very slow to develop. The updates are pretty slow, and some even make the app unstable, rendering it useless until the next update. It happened to me but chances are very slim.
  • They don't have a dedicated app for Windows. I really missed that, and they still don't have one.
