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?

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?

I hate it how task-apps put every very handy option behind a paywall. Used their app on iOS years ago and decided to try it out again: instantly turned off by the fact that subtasks require a 40 dollar a year pro-licence. Deleted my account right away.

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.

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.

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

Google Calendar integration is a great advantage!
