    Is it just me or is this phone lacking a simple to-do list? any simple type of notepad would suffice for me.. but I cant find anything remotely close to it.. or am i just not looking right?

    quick-list is a little too "quick" o.o is there a way to make the text smaller? a whole sentence doesn't even fit on the screen.

    You can actually type in instead of "scribbling" your list.

    Hey everyone, there is a simple to do list available:

    http://www.jsharkey.org/downloads/TodoList.apk

    Follow the above link in your G1 Browser, and enjoy!

    P.S. It is from the same creator, Jeffrey Sharkey, of the iTunes and Amarok (for those Linux fans) Remote.

    Works great on my Tmobile G1 Device!

    Dont forget to check the box next to "unknown sources" in
    Settings > Applications . This will allow you to install applications not in the Android Market.

    =] I would also recommend downloading the iTunes Remote, works perfectly, and I've been able to change the music on my PC and Mac from anywhere in my house using my wireless connection!

    I would certainly love this kind of application when I get my G1. It's such a basic and common application that I'm sure it will be developed by someone soon.

    right. its a glitch. turn on Wifi when you download and install. Using the 3g network it somehow doesn't want to install.

    There are actually a number of to-do lists for Android. One is really powerful but, in my opinion, hard to use. One is so simple it's almost useless. And a couple are in the middle somewhere. My favorite by far is Tag ToDo, which is a very nice Android App.

    More details about these options in a blog post I wrote about the subject, here.

    That's a really useful post, Polytrope. I found it useful.

    I've migrated to my G1 from a windows mobile and I'm used to using the excellent ListPro. What I'm after is a similar app that would allow me to create a number of reuseable lists. Maybe there's a developer out ther...

    Thanks for the heads up on this to do list.

    So far, it's the best one out there.

    Still, there are numerous basic features missing, which I hope the developer might add (again, for what's out there, this one is the nicest one I've seen so far)

    What's needed is (for me) alarms, due dates, catagories.... those are a few features that would really make this excellent!

    Also, if it could post reminders on the Google calendar, eliminating the need to view two locations for apps. and to do's...

    Anyways, one can always dream.....

    is there really no google solution? I use my task list in gmail all the time since it's right there... I can't believe that there's nothing to sync to that pre-installed.

    Well, you can grab the app called "gTasks" from the Market, it syncs with your Google Tasks. However, at the moment it has no List management, you can only select from lists you've already created through the online interface.

    Basically, Google has not opened its API for Tasks along with not releasing their own Tasks application. It's a bit frustrating, we're waiting for them to get on this:

    Astrid Feature Request - Google Tasks sync

    Issue 987 - gdata-issues - Request API for Tasks (in the Google Mail Interface) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I had a Palm Treo. They had a desktop to phone software that worked well. Now I cannot find a task management App that I can run on my desktop and the Droid. I have looked at Shuffle, Astrid, ActionComplete, TagToDo and a few others, but no luck, several of them say they are working on it. Or they are working on a phone to web system.

    The google calendar has a task list but it is pretty lousy.

    I must say, I am a little dissappointed that I am reinventing the wheel for something my very old Palm Treo did.

    Am I missing something? Ultimately I would like to be able to have a task list that my employees could use and that I could also have on my cell phone.

    Astrid syncs with Remember the Milk:
    Astrid
    Remember The Milk

    It's fantastic. AND there is a Gmail plugin available on the site for Remember the Milk.

    Remember the Milk let's you
    Share tasks
    Publish tasks
    Sync with iCal enabled calendars (like Google Calendar, Outlook, Lightning for Thunderbird, etc.)
    Reminders
    Tagging
    RSS Feed
    Smart lists

    You name it. I think it just might be the solution you're looking for, and no hacking or fiddling required. It just works.

    You don't even need the Pro account since Astrid is actually better, IMO, than RTM's official client. Astrid syncs from your phone and the web simultaneously with the push of a button! However, if you like RTM, it's good to donate ;)
