    Hey all. Searched and read through all of the posts I could find about tasks, this one didn't seem to have been asked.
    I am a recent lifetime, primarily business, Blackberry convert (who's impressed by Android right down to my Swype keyboard).
    I have been on the search for a good task management app that integrates well with my messages (Live Exchange), and basically allows me to forward a message to my task list right from the message itself. Basically I want to open the email, determine it is a task that I need to get to later, and forward it to my task app.
    I know there is a rough way to do it with RTM by forwarding to my RTM inbox email address, and that's sort of okay, but RTM truncates the message severely, and I tend to lose all of the detail I need.
    I know Astrid is supposed to be great, but is there any way to better integrate with my device so that I don't have to manually enter all of the task details when they are already in the email message?
    My apologies if this is at all unclear, I guess I'm just wondering what tricks anyone has to easily open tasks.

    I used an app like that in the past and tried to find it but did not have time to do it.

    I searched for a to-do app in the past and I remember trying on of those apps and it had an option of specifying a word/ string in the subject line of the email and it would then pick up that email from your Google Mail app and make a task out of it.

    I really do not remember which app was that as I tried a lot of them, maybe someone will be able to com up with the name.

    P.S. If you search for to do, to-do and tasks in the Market and look through those apps there you will find it.

    Did you ever find an app that would allow you to easily turn an email into a task, preferably with google tasks? Looking for something that allows me to mimic the Shift + T (email to task) functionality within the gmail browser client.
