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.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
