Tasks Today Screen plug-in for the Pocket PC


Do you want a quick way to view your current tasks? To see what tasks are due Today, tomorrow, this week, or next month? To only see tasks for specific categories? Then what you need is QuickTasks! QuickTasks is a Today Screen plugin which displays your current tasks on your main Today Screen.

By doing a tap-n-hold on a specific task, you can easily change the due date or importance level. You also sort the displayed list by date, importance, or completion status, and even edit the text for a task on the Today Screen. To save screen space you can “hide” the tasks display and just show the main QuickTasks bar.


Version 3.3

Since QuickTasks uses the same standard tasks database as all other 3rd-Party PIMs and the builtin MS Tasks Application, tasks created and synced with MS-Outlook on your Desktop PC will be displayed in the QuickTasks window.

QuickTasks can also activate other 3rd-party PIM programs (e.g., PocketInformant, AgendaFusion) just by tapping an icon on the screen.
