If you're a Wunderlist user, you're most probably aware the app will cease to exist on May 6th. Microsoft has been pushing its To-Do app to users, but there are a bunch of other options to consider.

IFTTT, the popular web-based automation platform, recently added support for three new services. The new additions to the service are Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow smart weather stations. I guess that means you can set lightning strikes recorded by your WeatherFlow weather station to trigger Asana tasks for your employees which, upon completion, add a Remember The Milk reminder to follow up on the lightning strike tomorrow. Ah, the future.
Remember the Milk lovers – tired of that drab old interface? Ready for something new and exciting? Want to remember your milk on a bigger screen than your phone's? Today's your lucky day! The app was just updated to v3, which brings all sorts of new features.
First, and most obvious, you get a whole new interface. It actually reminds me a lot of Evernote, which is a good thing for this sort of app – I find the stacked card interface to be quite intuitive. But it doesn't just stop there – the UI is also dynamic so it adapts to larger screen devices like tablets.
If you already use Remember the Milk to handle your todo lists, then there's a good chance you already know about this update. If you're not currently using RtM, though, then maybe it's time to give it another look.
The latest update brings an enhanced interface for more intuitive task management, as well as some new features and widgets. The updated app also includes another major change: it's now free for everyone. Of course, there are some bells and whistles that have been saved for Pro account holders, like push syncing, reminder notifications, and widgets; but considering those limitations are few, RtM is still highly usable in its lite form.
Remember The Milk is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful task management solutions on the market, and its Android app is pure awesomeness. It is extremely polished, and I rely on it reminding me about my tasks, including various Android Police business, every day.
One feature that the RTM app has been lacking is push syncing support, instead making us select a potentially battery-killing polling interval (mine was set to every hour). As I've found out from my own observations, frequent sync is really devastating to the battery life, and should be avoided as much as possible. To address that, today that the company released an update version 1.4 of the Android client, codenamed "Rachael," which introduced what they've described as the "magical push syncing awesomeness," among other things.
