Google Tasks has been available for a few years, but it’s one of the most basic task management applications I’ve ever seen, essentially offering little more than a simple To Do list. If it weren’t integrated with Gmail, I’m not sure I’d pay any attention to it at all. But today Google released an API for Google Tasks which could be a game changer for Google Tasks.

A number of developers including Produteev, Mavenlink, Manymoon and Zoho have already integrated Google Tasks with their products, and the developer behind Pocket Informant has announced that he’s looking at adding support for Google Tasks synchronization to his mobile calendar and task manager app for Android, iOS, and BlackBerry — although it may take a while to implement.
