I've always hated sending out meeting invites from my phone, mostly because I find it much harder to see other people's calendars on my mobile device than on my computer.

[Update: Now in Android app] Google Tasks gets timed reminders and recurring functionality

Google's Tasks to-do list service may be simple to the point of uselessness for many, and its old standalone web UI could die at any time, but it's still under active development. Proof for that comes today, as Google is rolling out a much-needed change to Tasks, giving us the option to add specific times of the day to tasks and set them to repeat.
