    RTM has just released an app for the iphone. Any idea if there's going to be one for the g1? (It's too clumsy using RTM through the browser.)

    It's the lack of an integrated task/to do manager as part of Goole Apps that I find frustrating. I'm still using my PocketPC for tasks - even though I really want to use the g1 completely.:eek:

    I don't have my g1 in front of me, but there is at least one Todo app in the market that syncs with RTM. Sorry I don't recall which one.

    I've been trying to use TooDo and seem unable to figure out how to set up my RTM credentials. I went into settings and enabled RTM sync. When I sync it fails and asks if I have been to the credentials tab. I can see the credentials tab behind the transparent error message but when I acknowledge the error the credentials tab goes away too. I can't seem to find how to get to the credentials tab the first time.

    Someone want to step up and make me feel stupid? :)

    I kept poking around and answered my own question. If you select the 'lightning bolt' icon from the opening screen you get a list of icons which include 'Home', 'Sync', 'Categories', etc. I hadn't realized there was another set of icons under 'Home' including RTM set up.

    Not really a fan of the interface of TooDo. Not really intuitive and pretty cluttered. I hope there is enough demand for RTM to port their iPhone RTM app to the G1.

    I eventually worked out how to use toodo and sync with RtM and my google account. It's actually quite a good app... but still seems a little too complex for my needs.

    Looking at the iphone RtM app, I'd guess that it will work with their pro account. Not sure if I want to pay just to use an online organiser.

    Why oh why can't Google create a todo app that integrates nicely with their other services. It couldn't be that hard for them, could it?

    If RTM would just fix their i.rememberthemilk.com site to work on Android, I'd be happy.

    I currently have a RTM Pro because I wanted MilkSync for Windows Mobile.

    I've been using the iPhone interface to add and view task lists, and then using Twitter SMS to mark tasks as complete. Overly involved, yes, but I'm not a big fan of TooDo.
    The only thing needing to be fixed with the iPhone interface is completing tasks (which, obviously, is a pretty big issue.) On the iPhone, Desktop Safari, and even Chrome, there's a checkmark next to each task that you're supposed to click/touch. Then, a box comes up allowing you to flag the selected task as complete. In Android, though, you aren't able to select the checkmark.
    Be careful if testing this out if you don't have a pro account, since it will activate your 15 day trial if you haven't already used it.

    I can do without an app. I use the browser and go to m.rememberthemilk.com with no problem at all.

    I added tasks to google calendar:
    http://www.rememberthemilk.com/help/answers/icalendar/googlecalendar.rtm

    So tasks with dates show up on the gcal app agenda.

    I don't need any advanced project management. I'm pretty much a minimalist. Using these 2 could not be easier for me.

    You guys are welcome to try it here...

    http://drop.io/androidRTM

    It is an early alpha - a few bugs I'm working on.
    I'll push it to the Android Market once those are knocked out... but try it if you can't wait. Feedback welcome.
