Tasks standalone Android app released by Google


Tasks standalone Android app

This week Google Inc announced a new version of Gmail with lots of new things (including snooze, mark unread from here) and Artificial Intelligence integration to make our interaction with their emailing service easier and less time-consuming. And along with their Gmail Web version overhaul, Google released the Tasks standalone Android app in the Google Play store.

The app works with Gmail and Google Calendar, and it allows viewings, managing, capturing and editing of the Tasks and subtasks you give the app. It also syncs all of your To-do lists across all owned devices, however there are a few shortcomings as well, like, the lack of integration with Google’s Virtual Assistant or Google Keep (which I, personally use a lot), or that the UI is very minimalist and white (looks unpolished), would be nice to see a dark theme on Tasks standalone Android app too and for Google to improve on Taks UI performance. Another shortcoming of Tasks, is that it doesn’t allow you to set a reminder within the app itself.
