A versatile todo app that has loads of functionality and compatibility

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: GetApp

Pros
RTM is one of the oldest todo apps that are out there, it is versatile and built for people who like to tinker. Having used several other todo apps, I find that RTM covers most of the most important things 1) Integration with Calendars - You are able to display tasks on calendars like Google, Apple and others. Many other apps do not have this function and come with their own calendar. For someone who constantly alternates between apps, being able to see what tasks are due in every app I use is a Godsend. 2) Apps everywhere. RTM has apps for every platform, even BB10. The cool thing its multi platform friendly and this is huge. Sure the apps could be way better but having apps for every platform is great 3) App flexibility - RTM has the ability to sync tasks from other apps like Evernote, IFTT, Zapier and others is also great, as sometimes I have a reminder in another app that I need to sync to RTM. One thing I must applaud RTM for is their functionality across platforms and apps, without saying too much. 4) Smart syntax is a feature I just started using, and it is good to say nonetheless. Being able to deal with a task with my keyboard is just great.

Cons
Remember The Milk isn't without its flaws. 1) RTM's task lists can sometimes feel very cluttered on the desktop and mobile apps, there are color codes but if the mobile apps could display tasks by day, week and month it would be great. If information could be broken down by when it is due and into specific categories, it would be great. 2) While it is a great todo app, the price for the pro feels a bit higher than it should be. I understand that there are a boatload of features but if there were better pricing plans, it would help a great deal rather than a one size fits all. 3) Again on the upgrade to pro, to get the most functionality out of RTM, you need a pro account. If you are testing the app, there is no free trial to give it a go, you have to fork out the money, which may be a deal breaker for some. 4) You can display tasks from RTM on calendars, but you cannot check those tasks off unless you do it in the RTM app. For Evernote the vice versa function is there but its not there for other apps.

The one-stop tool to drive my life

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

I started with RTM as a tool to record my To-Dos and now it has turned as my guide for the day. Apart from issues in switching timezones while traveling and still maintaining the position of recurring tasks, there's almost nothing I can complain about the tool.

Pros
- Available on all platforms I can think of, including BlackBerry 10! - Recording tasks is as easy on a mobile device as on a desktop/web-page - Completing tasks feel more natural than any other tool I've used - The number of tools available to organize tasks is enormous: lists (and smart-lists), tags, contacts, locations, etc. - Filters is one of my most favorite things in RTM

Cons
- There's no concept to view multiple lists in a single view as Todoist does - I wish there could be different containers for personal, work, more

Basic but useful

Pros
The list feature is easy to use and items in the list are easy to check off. The basic version is free.

Cons
the main list layout is not user friendly . It is hard to find the different functions on each list unless you become more familiar with it.

My new favorite Task Manager

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2019-11-26
Review Source: Capterra

This has streamlined my productivity, without being distracting to my day. I find it's not more work to use it as a task manager, but rather an easy way to track goals and tasks.

Pros
I recently switched at RTM, and I love the free features such as the ability to set reccuring tasks. This is important to me, because I used to spend a lot of time adding the same weekly goals I had. Additionally, you can delegate tasks to other coworkers seamlessly. The interface is cleaner than other TM tools I've used, and in this case less is more.

Cons
It's not intuitive to "complete" a task. There are a lot of random fields that obscure the functional ones that are obvious for a new user. I'm sure I will get used to this

Great todo app for people with a programming mind

Reviewed 2015-12-22
Review Source: GetApp

NOTE: I am a beta tester for Remember the Milk via their Pro program. That means I pay for their service and in return I get to opt-in to the beta version. I've been an RTM user since 2005, and although different things have made me look at other services over the years (all the other services I'd wager) I keep coming back to RTM because of it's amazing flexibility. The current non-beta web app is very outdated looking and badly in need of a design overhaul, but the amazing features of RTM have always been under the hood. I won't be reviewing all of RTM's features as I don't use them all, and listing features in a review is silly because feature sets change. RTM's smart add syntax allows you to add every bit of information to a task via typing, meaning no clicking annoying boxes and no mousing over strange inputs to find out about them. To go with this smart add syntax, there's a very robust task search syntax that allows you to find literally any task via any condition or set of conditions. Think of it like programming but for task management. This syntax allows you to create very complex search queries and save them as smart lists, so if you need to see all your tasks due before 5p on Friday that are in the Work list with a #waiting tag but not those that have been added since yesterday, you can do that. RTM has both an iOS and Android app as well as the web offering. Their Android mobile app is very nice with Material design and access to all the features of the web app, albeit some more well-hidden than others. RTM acts as a "share" app, meaning you can share items from many other apps to RTM as a task; sharing tasks from RTM to other apps isn't yet available. To get unlimited and automatic syncing with the mobile app and app notifications however, you'll need to cough up $25/year for a Pro account; the free version only allows a manual sync once every 24 hours. Pro gives you other features as well.

Pros
- Smart add syntax to add all task properties at once via keyboard - fully keyboard compatible (web app) - iOS and Android apps - capable of highly complex search queries that can be saved for future use

Cons
- seemingly basic features such as mobile syncing are only available after purchase ($25/year) - current web app UI is dated - no subtask support in current web app
