Remember the Milk is known for being one of the best ways to manage your tasks, the one of the most fully integrated web apps. Either you want to be notified by Twitter, add new tasks while browsing the internet or reminded on your mobile device.andnbsp;
Remember The Milk can do it.
The sign-up process in Remember The Milk is very easy, you will be running inside under 5 minutes. The primary service is free, although the premium Remember The Milk account gives you more options and choices, including the ability to sync your tasks with your mobile phone and priority support among others.
While there is a getting started guide, you will need a good 30 minutes to understand and use it correctly. This solution is available in a variety of languages but still complex and deserve a solid test drive.
Despite all this Remember The Milk is an excellent to-do service and well worth the initial learning curve.

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 The current non-beta web app is very outdated looking and badly in need of a design overhaul, but the amazing features of RTM have always been under the hood.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

OK, icon aside, Remember the Milk is not quite as hideous as I expected it to be. Sure, that awful cartoon cow does pop up every now and again but apart from that, Remember the Milk is actually pretty good.
The app itself is incredibly simple to navigate, and I like that the interface improved once I created an account as it seemed a little old-fashioned. One feature that I found especially useful is the ability to search for a task via location, which is great if you are visiting the city center, for example, and have a number of errands to run. Another is Smart Add, something I used regularly when in a hurry.
It is surprisingly simple, yet very effective. It is basically an online to do list that helps you keep track of your tasks and mark them as completed if they are. All in all, Remember the Milk is for tasks the same way LastPass is for passwords.
