Remember The Milk Comments

Functional and condescending. Yes... condescending!

Comment by JohnFastman
about Remember The Milk and Asana, Nozbe, Todoist Mar 2017

In terms of functionality, Remember the Milk is easily one of the best apps out there. It can rival leaders like Wunderlist and ToDoIst when it comes to meeting the task management needs of most individuals. That includes parsing phrases like "Meet Jim on Friday", labels, filters, a functional search, reliable syncing. There are even Remember the Milk apps for Linux. Moreover, their Android app doesn't constantly complain if you deny it access to Google Play Services, which means that Remember the Milk is more privacy conscious than ToDoIst and Asana.

But what I can't stand is their insistence on peppering the interface with infantile little drawings. The cartoon cow. The cartoon milk carton that appears on their website with pointless exclamations like "G'day!" and "Yoohoo!". WTF is that for? And then there's their mascot, Bob, a stuffed toy monkey. Want to contact support? It's Bob they claim is handling your message. (He isn't: he's a toy monkey.) Visit their page to learn about the PRO account? One of the benefits is keeping Bob fed (It's not: he's a toy monkey.). All that's missing now is for us to learn that Bob the stuffed toy is also in charge of server security.

It's idiotic and a turn-off to be treated to like I'm a kindergarten kid. I'm a potential paying customer; I don't want to do business with a company not professional enough even to talk to me other than through toys and cartoons. I don't give $40/year to for that. The PRO account offers theming, but no screenshots of this exist online that I can find, so I can't know if the PRO themes do away with the cow and the monkey and the cartoon carton.

Maybe if Bob told the humans at Remember the Milk (if there are any) to stop it with this cutesy, sacharine, unprofessional kindergarten stuff and take a page out of Nozbe's aesthetic handbook for to-do list managers, they'd listen.

Google Calendar integration is a great advantage!

Connecting speed is good, functions are OK, but interface is ugly.

Task Coach can manage composite tasks, RTM cannot
Until now I used Remember The Milk [4] for tasks used on more than one computer. RTM is able to sync the tasks from the private and the jobs computer about the internet. Since I know Task Coach [1], my new favorite task application is Task Coach, because it can manage hierarchical tasks and can add notes and files to taks and sub-tasks. The synchronizing of tasks is also possible by installing the portable version of task coach in a folder which I sync with Sugar Sync [2] about all my used computers. Each task in Task Coach can be assigned to a category. In difference to RTM all categories can be structured hierarchical as the tasks itself, and it is very comfortable to filter / find tasks by clicking the categories. Since SugarSync has now 5 GB free storage at the beginning and you can sync unlimited devices (instead of max.2 until Oct.2010), it is no longer necessary, that the task-app itself has an online storgage as RTM has, the task-app must only be availbale as a portable app as Task Coach is. SugarSync Registration Link for syncing Task Coach on unlimited devices with 5GB online storage, see [3].

I hate the fact that it doesn't have a decent calendar for task viewing/organizing. Other than that, it's a pretty complex (sometimes too complex) and complete task managing system. Still, this one flaw is preventing me from using it effectively on a daily basis instead of Google Tasks.

The best thing about RTM is the fact that it's everywhere! Access it from their website, your mobile phone, your vista sidebar, igoogle, your gmail account..... the list goes on and on.
