Remember the Milk – Where To-Do List Meets Technology

August 9, 2008

Still in beta is a web-based solution for helping you keep track of what you need to do. It’s more than an electronic to-do list, it’s a way of keeping you prioritized and synced to those electronic devices we have become so dependent upon.

If you lose your paper day planner, or your smartphone with a to-do list application it’s gone forever. However, with a virtual to-do list, like Remember the Milk, you can’t misplace it. Your info is stored on the web and is accessible from anywhere including your cell phone, smartphone, or personal computer. This is a great tool for writers, but more on that later…

Don’t you just love technology?

Remember the Milk allows you to receive reminders via email, SMS, and instant messenger (AIM, Gadu-Gadu, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MSN, Skype and Yahoo! Integrated map features let you track your route to and from your next task.

Milk Money?
Remember the Milk is currently in beta and it’s free! If you want to sync your iPod Touch, iPhone or BlackBerry you’ll need the pro edition, which runs $25 a year. When you think about it, that’s a descent price when compared to one of those $15 – $25 weekly paper calendars.

What’s in it for the writer?
As always, I’m going to spin this into a useful solution for writers.  Our hectic schedules quite often demand that we pencil in time to breathe, let alone writing time.  Remember the Milk can help you plan out a writing schedule and keep yourself on track.  You can dichotomize your day using their tabs as I have outlined in the example below.

Got Partner?
With Remember the Milk you can share, send and publish tasks and lists with your contacts.  Are you writing with a partner and needing to meet a deadline?  This may be the perfect tool to keep everyone focused, accountable, and on track!
