Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
Manage Google Tasks on Windows Phone 8 with GTasker
One of the biggest setbacks Microsoft is facing with Windows Phone during a time when Android dominates the landscape is their adamant, yet honorable, willingness to resist anything Google-related. Microsoft influenced devices such as the Nokia Lumia, and even the heavily modified Android-based Nokia X family, are void of any and all Google services–with Microsoft and Nokia counterparts filling in the space. For the busybodies who rely much on Google services such as Google Tasks, this can be quite the inconvenience.
Thankfully however, XDA Senior Member mckoo has developed an app for WP8 called GTasker that allows you to manage your Google Tasks on your Windows Phone 8 device. Its features are extensive, including:
- Add, edit, move, delete tasks
- Add, edit, delete task lists
- Clear completed tasks
- Live tile support
- Lock screen support
- Speech recognition for text input
- Auto-sync with Google account
Of course, being a WP8 app, not all Windows influences have been removed. Instead, the app features the rather pleasant Metro design language that WP users have come to love. And if you don’t like how the app looks, there is support for dark and light themes as well. Additionally, GTasker comes in English, Chinese, and German, but you are free to translate the app into another language with the spreadsheet provided in the application thread.
If you would like to give GTasker a try, be sure to head over to the GTasker app thread for more information.
