You all know I spend lots of time trying to find my perfect organizer. Since Sandy retired (http://www.k12opensourceclassroom.org/?p=611), I tried many different online organizing, syncing tools. None really did what I needed. Now with the EVO, I needed something that would sync my tasks to all computers and my phone. My calendar needed syncing too. Of course with all the Android apps, I really hoped I could find something. Looks like I finally did–Pocket Informant for the Android and ToodleDo for the integration of tasks into Google Calendar and back to the phone.
So what did I do first? First I created an account at ToodleDo (http://www.toodledo.com). Just your run of the mill online task site, and the web interface is nothing exciting, but you need to create that to post tasks to initially. After that, I followed the Goolge Calendar integration directions and got a nice little side panel on all my Google Calendars. I can look at all my tasks, add, check off, and edit right in my Google Calendar.
Step two was to find something that would bring in Toodledo tasks and sync both ways. Pocket Informant did that. You can find it in the Android Marketplace. This will sync both your Google Calendar and your Toodledo Tasks. What I like most about PI is the different views of the calendar. You can see an agenda style, daily, monthly, and weekly. It keeps the colors of all your Google Calendars as well. Then you have a separate tab for Tasks. When you create a task on the computer or on the phone, they all sync. Great! Right now, Pocket Informant is free. It may be a charge when it comes out of Beta, but I think it would be worth it, at least for me. While I still miss my digital assistant Sandy, Toodledo and Pocket Informant definitely meet my needs!
