Okay, iPhone Peeps, Question TIme!

As inconceivable as it may sound, MobileMe doesn't seem to synch your task list. That's because, as far as I can tell, the iPhone doesn't have a native task list.

(Wait, you've got e-mail, calendar, contacts, and notes, but no task list? WTF? That's like building a car with windows, wheels, steering, and engine but no brakes.)

So help me out here! What do I do to plug this hole? My too-much-to-do list is the only thing that keeps me in the relative state of sanity I've got.

I found an app in the "App Store" that claimed to synch with Outlook, but then all the reviews said "This doesn't synch with Outlook very well." I already went through that level of hell with the Palm, I don't want to play that game again.

EDIT: Thanks for the info, all. I ended up trying a service called "ToodleDo" which has a "synch w/ Outlook" application as well as an iPhone app. So far it appears to be working.

If there is a Thinking Rock "Getting Things Done" app, that would be the King Hell of All Task Lists.

Go get yourself the App called "Things" It does what you want

Checked it out ... doesn't seem to have any Outlook synch, tho.

I would say it's more like building a car with windows that don't roll down; it really annoys some people and others will blink, look at you and ask "Windows are supposed to roll down?"

You want the Things app. It'll run you , I think, $9.99 .. and for full benefit, you'll want the Mac App for it too, which will cost you $50.

The Mac app won't help on my Dell. ;P

Thanks anyway!

I have Yahoo emails, so I use the Yahoo bit in settings/email to have all of them come to my phone. I also turn OFF the PUSH feature and just have the phone check for new mail every 30 minutes - this extends battery life tremendously. The phone then tells me when I have new email and I can read and reply right there on the phone, no matter where I am.

No, you have no task list. You don't need one. Unlike a fullblown computer, you only have one program running at a time.

Leave Outlook, she's a hooker and doesn't appreciate you :P
And don't bother with Lotus Notes either, she's all looks without function. You know what works? GMAIL man! Gmail!

Outlook works very well -- it just doesn't play well with others.

I looked at Gmail's task manager ... if I didn't already have all of my tasks in Outlook, I'd be more interested. But I don't want to have to depend on web access. I'm not a "cloud computing" type of guy if I can help it.

Uhh, Toyota?

I thought Task Lists were best run from Notepad.
