Real time updating comes to the Remember The Milk web app

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 by Omar Kilani

Users of our Android app have enjoyed real time push syncing for a while now. We've always wanted to add this real time updating awesomeness to the web app, and with the help of Scala, Akka, Netty and Unfiltered, we're excited to announce that real time updates are finally here.

This magical real time updating goodness means that you'll see changes to your tasks as soon as they happen. Updated a task on your shiny new iPad? Bam! The update shows up in your browser without you lifting a finger. Postponed a bunch of tasks on your Android device? Boom! There they are all freshly postponed. Someone you're sharing tasks with decides to tag a bunch of tasks with 'bananas'? Ka-ching! Little blue tags magically appear on your tasks.

Real time updating is now available with Google Chrome, Firefox 3+, IE 8+, Safari 5+, and Opera 10+. We hope you enjoy this magical new era of real time awesomeness. :)
