Wouldn’t it be great to have one central place to organize all your “to-do’s,” somewhere you could access from any web browser, integrate into your Gmail Inbox view, and even access from an iPhone? That solution is here today in the form of Remember The Milk.
I’ve been using RTM for several weeks now, and it has been fantabulous:
- I get email reminders and/or SMS text message reminders that have saved my butt on more than one occasion.
- I can “star” a Gmail message (after installing the RTM Firefox add-in) and a to-do is automatically created in RTM — I’ve been wanting this functionality for a long time.
- I now have recurring reminders for everything from getting my hair cut to birthdays and anniversaries.
- I can even set up RTM to work with the Getting Things Done system (okay, using GTD has been on my to-do list for, like, five years, so I guess I’d better add “Actually start using GTD” to my to-do list).
Oh, and did I mention that almost all the functionality of RTM is free?
