Windows Phone 7 is one of the better mobile platforms for getting work done. The fact that Microsoft owns much of the business and enterprise technology products is obviously a large contributing factor. Microsoft’s Exchange, SharePoint, and Office products are all integrated into Windows Phone 7 to some level. Strangely though Microsoft left out a business tool that can be integral to managing your daily schedule, this being some sort of task management or to-do list utility.
The aptly-named Tasks for Windows Phone 7 is a task management application for your Windows Phone. Sadly synchronization tools or services are unsupported, though the Tasks team promises they will be made available in the next release. What Tasks does offer is a beautiful and efficient user interface that gives you all the information you need to keep your priorities in order. Using the standard panoramic UI that Windows Phone users have become familiar with, Tasks offers visibility of your tasks based on schedule or associated projects or categories. New tasks can be created with pictures or voice memos in addition to more typical data such as an email address or the URL of a website.
Tasks is available as a free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace.
