Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Adding tasks via text message

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 by Emily Boyd

As sandiegan discovered, there's a neat trick with Remember The Milk for Twitter — adding tasks super quickly via text message!

Bob texts his tasks

So you don't have a smartphone — big whoop. It's still possible to remember "Oh, I have to do ____" and add it to RTM without having to write it down for later using text messages. Here's how to do it:

  1. Create a Twitter account (if you don't already have one).
  2. Add it to the box on this page.
  3. Follow @rtm.
  4. When @rtm follows you back, send the following tweet with the code given to you on the services page "d rtm ".
  5. Set up your mobile phone with Twitter so that you can update your status via text message.

Now you can easily add tasks to Remember The Milk via your cell, all through texts! See the different ways to add lists, tags, due dates, and other fields on this page.
