Remember The Milk is arguably among the most popular to-do apps for iOS and Android devices and it clearly has bigger plans since it released desktop app versions for Linux and Windows last month.

As is common with other to-do apps like Simplenote for Linux, Remember The Milk’s desktop client is nothing more than a web app running in an Electron wrapper. But that isn’t a bad thing – it is thanks to Electron that many applications have become available for Linux and Mac.


Some of Remember The Milk‘s main features are:

  • Desktop notifications
  • Divide bigger tasks into subtasks
  • Click and drag support
  • Add tags, due dates, estimated time, links, and notes to tasks
  • Tag locations in Google Maps then use them to organize tasks
  • Sharing individual tasks or lists with contacts
  • Organizing tasks in plain text lists
  • Weekly schedule of tasks
  • Integration with various services such as Gmail, Evernote etc.


Installing Remember The Milk

The To-Do app comes in two versions, free and Pro and installing either can be easily done thanks to the binaries provided. There are .deb and .rpm binaries for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu and Fedora based Linux distros.

To download the installer files you will need to be logged in. So, yeah, create an account if you don’t already have one.

You should know that unlike Simplenote, Remember The Milk is not Open Source. However, that shouldn’t take anything away from the experience it will provide you.
