A year ago I decided to try Remember the Milk Pro, however this year, I have decided that it’s not for me.
I was trying to replace Toodledo with Remember The Milk. RTM has a nicer interface, seems simpler, a lot of people rave about it and it just felt like a good move.
A Pro account is $25/year and it includes apps for Android, iPhone, Outlook, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and an option to see new features before others. My main reason for upgrading was for the iPhone app.
I moved some of my stuff from Toodledo to RTM and things seemed ok. Turns out, a different getting things done (GTD) app doesn’t do any good when you don’t do much with it in the first place. I was trying to get organized though.
When I got my iPad, I was re-energized to get things organized. Sadly, there is no Remember the Milk for iPad, however there was one for Toodledo.
For $4.99 I could get Toodledo apps for my iPod Touch & iPad. These didn’t require a Toodledo pro account or a yearly fee.
Turns out that Remember The Milk made me realize why I was using Toodledo in the first place. The free version does everything I need and what it lacks in the web user interface, it more than makes up for in features. Plus if I stuck with the iPad version, there were no user interface concerns.
When it came time to renew my Remember The Milk Pro account, I saw no need. Toodledo does everything I need, saves me money and I feel more organized now than I have in a long time.
