Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Wall of widgets

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 by Andrew Conkling

Remember The Milk for Android features home screen widgets for you to see what's going on at a glance. This week's tip, shared by joooc, shows how to see what's going on at a glance… four ways over.

Wall of widgets

I use RTM widgets on my Android phone to split the wall to four different areas:

top-left: Today Smart List
top-right: "To-Do" – my primary tasks list
bottom-right: Inbox
bottom-left: "Buy" list for items like hangers, toothpaste, present for someone … and milk of course ;-)

Together, they occupy exactly one of 7 walls available, creating an RTM wall with all the info and controls I need. It's the first wall on the left so basically once I unlock my phone on the go, I only need to swipe once and voila – all the tasks are instantly visible to me at one glance.

It's very practical and fast to see what's there for the day while still having access to all task just a tap away. The "Buy" list is great for checking what I need to buy on my way home or actually when I'm shopping, not to forget anything. Even more, Inbox serves as a perfect Notepad tool for ideas and tasks gathering that I can't process right now but neither I want them to fly away.
