Remember the Milk existed before everyone was on the Getting Things Done wagon, and therefore has a better idea of how its thousands of customers accomplish tasks than most other companies. By virtue of its early entry into the market, its mobile apps were quite poorly-designed, particularly on Android.
With RTM 3.0, the company is taking another stab at winning customers it has since lost to Astrid, Wunderlist, Todoist, Producteev and more, offering a nicely-designed Android app with an intuitive, layered design (think Evernote but better) with a few Holo touches thrown in there.
The app divides your tasks into sections: This Week (Today, Tomorrow, etc.), Lists (Study, Personal, Work, Travel), Tags, Locations and Search, which can be utilized to narrow down previous entries.
Remember the Milk employs a freemium model for its service; the basic functionality is free, but a Pro account gains you unlimited synching (the free account is limited to manual syncing), multi-device sync, push notifications for reminders, a widget and more. The $25/year price may be steep for users acclimated to paying nothing for their task service, but since RTM is available on every platform (and you’re likely already a user if you’re considering paying the price for Pro) it’s not too bad. The new app also fits nicely onto Android tablets, something very competitors can make claim to.
