    I need a good app that will help me plan a schedule as I want to improve my lifestyle. Ideally it should have a calendar view, and it should allow me to have repeated tasks every week. For instance, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I go to the gym at 8.30AM, etc. Something a little bit like Sunbird which I used to use.

    However, another feature which I doubt exists in any such apps but I figured I'd ask anyway, is the ability to modify these tasks from my PC as well, with the data synchronising between my droid phone and PC over the internet. It's a lot easier to modify tasks via a PC, but I wouldn't want to use an app that's just accessible on my PC (I use Windows 7 by the way) because sometimes you'll want to add small things to a schedule when you're out and about.

    Thanks.

    If you can't find something combining calendar and tasks (like Jorte), then you can always use two different apps (like Business calendar and Gtasks).
    Editing tasks in PC is perfectly possible, especially if the tasks program syncs to Google Tasks.

    Usta: I'll look into that. I use a tasks thing with my Gmail account, but it's very simplistic. I assume what you're talking about is something different?

    BabyBlues: Pure Calendar widget looks very good. What's the advantage of using AppBrain rather than the Android marketplace? They seem to be the same price.

    Anyway, thanks for your suggestions. I'll check 'em out.

    I use app brain when I'm in front of a PC. There is the option to be able to download directly to your phone from app brain too which is nice sometimes.

    But doesn't the marketplace allow that for all phones anyway? I use a Galaxy S2 and when I get a free download or purchase something, it instantly downloads to my phone. Just a bit curious, that's all. :)

    I meant download to the phone if you are using the PC to look at app brain. And yes, the market does that also. I use both.

    You can use a tasks app on the phone that syncs with Gmail Tasks.
    One example is Gtasks.
