Google Tasks is Finally Available on Mobile
Google has finally unleashed Google Tasks to mobile users, making it available for download and install on iOS and Android. Originally an underused tool that comes with Gmail, the app is supposedly a revamped version in line with the major Gmail redesign.
The app itself is neat, minimal, and straightforward. You can group your tasks into “lists”, which is the app’s equivalent to other tools’ “projects” feature. You also have access to a bunch of staple actions, including subtasks, basic scheduling, and email integration. But there’s little going on in the app beyond that. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that Google Keep is a better task manager.
My salt with all this is that Google is in a unique position to develop a task management tool that’s not only pretty but also functional and effective. Right now, even time scheduling isn’t available. What more the other robust features common amongst to-do list apps like Todoist, Microsoft To-Do, and Asana?
Of course, Google Tasks is in its infantile stages, still, and Google has plenty of opportunities an app that can blossom into something beautiful. For now, I won’t be using it. But for those of you who are intrigued, you can start downloading it on your iPhones or Android phones.
