Gmail tasks grow up - slightly

I've been rather unimpressed with Google/Gmail Tasks. They remind me of Apple's disastrous tasks, except they don't even have categories.

They're not dead yet though ...

Official Gmail Blog: Tasks: Paper vs. iPhone

We set out to fix this by making Tasks available from your phone with a version optimized for the small screen. And starting today, you can manage your task list from your iPhone or Android device...

... Just go to from your phone's browser and log in. If you already use the version of Tasks in Gmail Labs, you'll see the same task list that's always in sync...
... so try it out and let us know.

P.S. There's a new gadget version of Tasks too -- so if you want to add your same task list to iGoogle, now you can.

I put my request list into the let us know bucket:

  • an API
  • Calendar integration (esp. something like this)
  • The "palm to do" minimal attribute set

If they get the API and calendar integration I'd love to see Appigo's iphone sync to Google Gmail tasks instead of to Toodledo.
