Journalists juggle with a lot of tasks and sometimes it’s hard to keep up with them, from making calls and writing e-mails to different sources, getting to the next location to make an interview and making deadlines.
The list of tasks can get overwhelming and some people turn to a to-do list, but that sometimes doesn’t help either – it happens to me all the time. However, this got a little easier to remember because of Remember The Milk.
Remember The Milk is a web app that lets users write in tasks and help him or her remember the task. It’s a more functional way of remembering the tasks because the users has to put in when the task is due, how long it will last doing that task and if the task needs to be repeated.
The way the web app works is by sending an e-mail to the address the user gave when signing up and if the user has an iPhone the reminder of the task will appear in the task app that comes already with the phone if the e-mail address goes to the phone.
Yes, the task app on the iPhone helps and is quick because it’s easy access, but Remember The Milk also has apps for the iPhone, Android and Blackberry and the app can also be available for the iPad. The app for the phone has a fun look that makes writing in the tasks more appealing because the task looks like it was handwritten and with an app name like Remember The Milk who wouldn’t remember a task.
The signing up process is quick and easy and can also be through Facebook and Google accounts.
I hope the next time you have a lot on your plate you remember the milk.
