<p>I use Remember The Milk, an online to do list and task management application, to keep track of the things I need to do as I tend to forget, well... almost everything. Thanks the <abbr title="Remember The Milk">RTM</abbr>'s <abbr title="Application Programming Interface ">API</abbr> the list of integrations with other systems is impressive: an <a href="http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/igoogle/" title="iGoogle Gadget">iGoogle gadget</a>, <a href="http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/gmail/" title="Remember The Milk for Gmail">Gmail</a> integration and <a href="http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/milksync/" title="MilkSync">Windows Mobile</a> syncing, just to name a few.</p>
<p>There is an <a href="http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/iphone/" title="Remember The Milk for iPhone and iPod Touch">iPhone interface</a> as well, which looks great by the way. Only one small problem though, you need a pro account if you want to use it after the 30 days trail period. Well, as of yesterday there is a solution for that: my flatmate <span class="vcard"><a class="url fn" href="http://www.fousa.be/" rel="friend met colleague co-resident">Jelle Vandebeeck</a></span> wrote a great - free - iPhone interface for Remember The Milk.</p>
<h2>iFousa</h2>
<p>Let's give the stage to Jelle for a moment, shall we?</p>

<p>Find it hard to remember your daily tasks? Wonder if it's possible to keep track of them where ever you are? Well now you can! With this application you're able to check your tasks everywhere your go. Well at least every where you have an EDGE connection...</p>
<p>You can add and delete tasks on the fly. Hey, you can even complete or postpone them... Every action is handled by a framework that connects to the &lsquo;Remember The Milk&rsquo; server. So nothing is stored by the app, but goes directly to the framework.</p>

<p>I have been b&egrave;ta testing his application over the last few days and it's great! The official RTM iPhone interface has more features but iFousa is a great alternative for anyone who needs quick access to his tasks on the road, did I already mention it's completely free? So, give it a try and give Jelle some feedback, I'm sure he would appreciate it. The webapp is written in Ruby On Rails but I suppose that's no surprise if you know Jelle a little.</p>
<p>At work I use the RTM <a href="http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/tips/2951/" title="Viewing your RTM lists in the Firefox Sidebar">iGoogle gadget in my Firefox sidebar</a> or the full website but iFousa is the preferred interface when I'm not behind a computer screen. Thanks to RTM and iFousa I can manage (and remember) my to do list wherever I want.</p>
