RTM Push Notifications

I don’t have a real solid task management system in place right now, but I’m still a big fan of Remember the Milk (RTM) and still use it pretty frequently. The RTM iPhone/Touch app [iTunes Link] recently got an update that added push notifications, so now you can have task reminders sent directly to your mobile device. For me, this is killer. You could have RTM remind you of things through e-mail before, but with push notifications your todo reminders can live in their own space without invading your e-mail inbox. Notice that I can now select my iPhone as my notification destination in the RTM Reminders settings.

Push AIM hits the App Store

Thanks for the heads up from zzztimbo on Twitter, who linked to this story at TechCrunch. The first useful application of push notifications in an iPhone app hit the store today, as AIM with push is now live. I haven’t messed with it much, but I think a lot of people have been waiting for this. Hit the update link in the App Store to grab it, or click here to install it for the first time [iTunes link].

I’m especially happy to see that the notification sound can be disabled. I hate that patented AIM Soundâ„¢.
