My Reviews

tasks & mails

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BY THE WAY, I use tasks & mails with IMAP and it works beautifully.

I'm giving tasks & mails 5 stars even though I think I need to stop using it for the moment.

It works beautifully within Thunderbird and is much simpler and easier than anything else I've found. Being email centric is great because email runs the world!

Unfortunately, I also need to have access to my tasks on my Android phone.

I use K-9, but I would be willing to use ANY imap compatible email program on my Android if it allowed me to use tasks & mails on my Android.

In fact, all I really need is an app on the Android that would allow me to see my tasks and mails todo list and update it, but having it as an add-on for an Android email client would be better.

A couple of possible workarounds would be:

1. Option to allow tasks & mails to automatically Star email that has a task associated with it -- The star is built into imap and when I star an email it shows up starred in my webmail and on my Android. That would at least allow me to easily see all of the emails that are linked to tasks.

2. Option to allow tasks & mails to automatically send a report on each task when it is added, updated, or closed. I could then set up an email address to receive them on my Android and see a complete status. Perhaps, even include the email linked to the task as an attachment. If not automatically, perhaps, a check box when creating a task which could default to on or off.)

3. Option to allow tasks & mails to send the email report on a schedule (like once daily)

Great job on a badly needed tool.

Speed Dial

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used speeddial for several years and find it is a great way to organize websites I frequent.

I use it for bookmarks, but it is a little bit clumsy for that use and doesn't integrate with FireFox bookmarks. I'd really like to see speeddial have the option to work with the Firefox bookmark system.

In this scenario, speeddial would be a thumbnail GUI for the Firefox bookmarks. You could add bookmarks using the existing Firefox tools or do it from speeddial.

In any case, speeddial would display the bookmarks hierarchically with thumbnails and it would be able to add, delete, update, and move bookmarks.

There is a new add-on called ViewMarks, which I will try, but I'd love the feature in the tried and true SpeedDial addon.
