I've been using RTM for literally decades. I don't use any of the advanced/paid features, merely as a reminder/to-do list.

Those reminders can be categorized, prioritized, and set up as recurring reminders. There is a web interface, and dedicated applications for smartphones. And, the reminders can be integrated with online calendar systems and with Thunderbird's calendar, as well.

For my needs, at least, it does everything I want as a to-do list, and it does it very well.

Even with the free version, I can add notes, priority, & tags. It shows up in my Inbox in Gmail. I choose this notification.

I was a pro user for some time but stagnation of features combined with high cost has driven me to consider migration. It was a good service in 2011 but after 8 years I'm not sure there was 8 years of improvement. Simple feature requests (such as YYYY-MM-DD date display - first requested in 2005) have still gone unimplemented.

2020: I've cancelled my subscription and I'm moving to other services. At this point so many other tools provide improved functionality to what RTM offers and at nearly $40/year it's a poor option.

Not a bad app. They have a few functions that are useful, but it's quite complex to use. It is easy to search for what task you are looking for and they also sync pretty quickly. But the interface doesn't suit me, it's a little messy. They should try to change it into something cleaner with less doodles, such as Quire and Trello. If you're looking for something professional and can be used for work, Remember the Milk is not the best choice, to be honest. I would recommend you switch to Trello, Quire, Asana...etc. They have cleaner interfaces, and softwares such as Quire have strong apps to support them.

In order to get things done, I want to break down large tasks into subtasks. For Remember the Milk, the subtasks feature requires subscribing to the Pro plan which costs $39.99 / year. I would prefer not to pay a recurring fee for my to-do list. But if I used it every day, then perhaps I could justify it?

Remember The Milk (RTM) has no discernable advantage over its competitors.

  • It's more expensive, less fully-featured and less convenient to use than Todoist
  • It's less private than EU-based services like Nozbe or Momentum.Earth, the latter of which offers end-to-end encryption
  • It's not open source, and therefore no more trustworthy than those listed above
  • Unlike Nozbe, it has no dedicated Linux app.

And, I have to add on a personal note, the people behind RTM are obsessed with cute-sy, bullsh*t cartoon characters that infantilise the entire experience. Why is a toy monkey called "Bob" part of the team? Why is there a silly cartoon cow face the logo? Why is there a cartoon milk carton on the webpage saying "Meow!"? Why is the entire thing peppered with these childish little pictures? Are the devs still in playschool?
