Overall Satisfaction with Remember the Milk

Remember the Milk is a great way to track personal and professional tasks, as well as lists. It is a great brain dumping tool and is helpful for when I want to remember many different things, maybe even across multiple projects. I like how there is a mobile app as well, so I can add to it on the go.
  • Mobile app
  • Assign tasks for others
  • Lists as well as tasks
  • Some features locked behind a pro account
  • Maybe be a lot of features for someone who just wants a simple task app
  • Sometimes easy to confuse task item with list items
  • Allows me to see my tasks at a glance easier and stay on top of things
  • Lets me manage my personal and professional lists easier
  • Allows me to share or delegate tasks to others when necessary
Google Tasks is a much simpler task-keeping interface, and I use it for the most important tasks on my phone. It does not offer tags, priorities, or distinguish between lists/tasks. It does let me star tasks, but does not let me determine the priority levels. I can also move tasks to different lists, but they can be hard to manage if there are too many, so I generally do not use this feature.

For me, Google Tasks is ideal for very simple "I need to write this down" type tasks that are of high priority. It is not a good brain dumping tool because tasks can easily get lost. This is more for those nagging tasks that I want to do and make sure there is an appropriate alarm for. It also integrates well with my Android home screen.

However, when I have lots of tasks I want to categorize, or I do want to do more of a brain dump type thing, I think Remember the Milk is far better. I can have more control over priorities, tags, assigning tasks to others, and other robust features.

I think Remember the Milk is a great tool for managing tasks and information. However, it depends on what the person is looking for. If you are looking for just a simple task management tool without any bells and whistles, this may be a lot, as it has a lot of advanced features (and even more if you go pro). If you are looking for a more robust task management tool with the option to add priorities, tags, categories, and assign tasks to others, this may be more suited for this. It is also helpful for managing lists like shopping lists or project lists.
