What can you use the app for?

Remember the Milk is an organizational application that helps users manage their day to day tasks. The application is built around the traditional “to do” list. The user can set up a list of items that need to be completed and check them off as they finish each. Tasks can be sorted into lists. Each list can have a theme, such as personal, study and work lists. Users can also add tasks to high priority, overdue and added today lists. Remember the Milk integrates with Gmail, Google Calendar, Microsoft outlook and Twitter. The application synchronizes two ways so changes added on one device or computer will be available on the other. The user can also receive task reminders by email, instant message or SMS.
