Pros: RTM has a very attractive desktop application that is easy-on-the eye. It's very quick to get started and quite intuitive in its use. I particularly like the way fields are only shown if they contain any data.

There are smartphone versions as well, and sync is invisibly smooth between platforms.

For the personal or casual user it doesn't get much easier than RTM.

Cons: Tasks which are completed cannot be sorted. This is a major inconvenience which a lot of people have asked to be put in place, for a long time. Devs are not responsive to this request which I personally have chased up a couple of times.

Overall: Initially I was using the software daily until I began to uncover some of its limitations with sorting,

Great todo software that balances simplicity with great flexibility

Pros: I love that RTM can be simple when simple is called for but also allows smart lists that can be customized, sorted, etc. to almost no end. While it does take some effort to make it do so, it is easier than one might imagine. Mobile apps and syncing also work well, as should be expected of software in this category.

Cons: While RTM is almost infinitely flexible, naturally the few areas where it isn't come into play for me. (For instance, completed tasks cannot be viewed in the same list as incomplete tasks.) Still, it's easily the most flexible todo list manager I've found.

Overall: RTM has made me more organized, plus it's satisfying to set up a complex smart list that ends up working just like you want it to.

Great todo app for people with a programming mind

Comments: NOTE: I am a beta tester for Remember the Milk via their Pro program. That means I pay for their service and in return I get to opt-in to the beta version. I've been an RTM user since 2005, and although different things have made me look at other services over the years (all the other services I'd wager) I keep coming back to RTM because of it's amazing flexibility. The current non-beta web app is very outdated looking and badly in need of a design overhaul, but the amazing features of RTM have always been under the hood. I won't be reviewing all of RTM's features as I don't use them all, and listing features in a review is silly because feature sets change. RTM's smart add syntax allows you to add every bit of information to a task via typing, meaning no clicking annoying boxes and no mousing over strange inputs to find out about them. To go with this smart add syntax, there's a very robust task search syntax that allows you to find literally any task via any condition or set of conditions. Think of it like programming but for task management. This syntax allows you to create very complex search queries and save them as smart lists, so if you need to see all your tasks due before 5p on Friday that are in the Work list with a #waiting tag but not those that have been added since yesterday, you can do that. RTM has both an iOS and Android app as well as the web offering. Their Android mobile app is very nice with Material design and access to all the features of the web app, albeit some more well-hidden than others. RTM acts as a "share" app, meaning you can share items from many other apps to RTM as a task; sharing tasks from RTM to other apps isn't yet available. To get unlimited and automatic syncing with the mobile app and app notifications however, you'll need to cough up $25/year for a Pro account; the free version only allows a manual sync once every 24 hours. Pro gives you other features as well.

Pros: - Smart add syntax to add all task properties at once via keyboard - fully keyboard compatible (web app) - iOS and Android apps - capable of highly complex search queries that can be saved for future use

Cons: - seemingly basic features such as mobile syncing are only available after purchase ($25/year) - current web app UI is dated - no subtask support in current web app

Comments: The last thing I need when managing my tasks is a complicated system of clicks and fields to add. I've tested and reviewed many other task managers, but Remember the Milk is the quickest system that I've found to enter my tasks thanks to their Quick Add options. I can add everything from due date to estimated time to priority quickly, all in the same field. Once my tasks are in Remember the Milk, I can use their Smart List system to see only what I need to handle at that moment. I love that Remember the Milk is exactly what I need in a task management system, even when what I need changes (as it has many times in the 7 years I've used it). It's perfect for my personal and business tasks, all at the same time!

Pros: Easy to use Adaptable to your needs Fun Helpful team
