    Is there any good alternative for the Astrid tasks app?

    I just need a widget on my homescreen like Astrid to show tasks. The problem with Astrid is that it has a backup process which keeps running in the background even when I disable backups. (See for yourself, in running processes)

    Thanks.

    It doesn't sound like you need to sync with Remember the Milk so you can try GTasks (which is simple, easy to use and syncs with your Google Tasks) if you are concerned about the backup process.

    The widget is a bit ugly but it works.

    I started with Astrid and it works fine but I just installed GTasks and except for the boring widget it works great so far. I like the fact that it syncs with Google tasks. One stop shop for all my personal info and it lets you create different lists for work, home etc.

    I am happy with GTasks with the Pure Calendar Widget to display tasks and agenda.
