New Google Tasks API

Just when you thought that Google Tasks was abandoned, Google releases an API for Google Tasks. “The Google Tasks API provides developers with a powerful set of API endpoints for searching, reading, and updating Google Tasks content and metadata.” Developers will be able to create applications for mobile devices, software that integrates Google Tasks with Outlook and other apps using an official API and a proper authentication mechanism.

Google Tasks has a lot to improve before becoming as powerful as Remember the Milk and it’s surprising that the missing features aren’t added faster. In January, Google listed some of the most common feature requests: repeating tasks, notifications, task sharing, tasks API, synchronization, visual distinction for overdue tasks. The Tasks API is the first feature that’s now available.
