When I’m at my desk during the day, I always have Gmail open. I know many others do the same — I’m usually chatting with them on GChat. Because I use Gmail so frequently, I often check the Labs section to see if they added anything beneficial. A while back I activated tasks, and have never looked back. It looks like a simple chat window, and you can write up your to-do list right in it. Gmail provides the check boxes. As Google expands its wireless sync — it started with calendar and now includes contacts — I wondered if they’d ever allow for task sync. It’s not an official Google product, but one developer has created a way to accomplish this. The application, appropriately titled Gmailtasksync, provides a two-way sync with the native Tasks application, so what you change on one end will reconcile with the other. The UI mimics that of the normal Google Sync application, so using the application shouldn’t be an issue for any Google apps user. Before you get too excited, this is a beta application and probably contains bugs. That’s why it’s in a free testing period. That period will last until March, at which time there might be changes. It could very well end up that Google adopts the project and offers it along with the rest of their mobile suite. But there’s also the possibility that the developer, BlueBerryNite Workshop, starts charging for the application. Since they made such a big deal of this in the product overview, I’ll repeat it here. Backup your device before your initial sync. Nothing should go wrong, but you always want to be safe. Those interested in syncing their BlackBerry and Gmail tasks can download Gmailtasksync for free. Check it out and let me know what you think. Via BlackBerry Rocks.
