Taking web applications offline with Google Gears

Friday, August 31, 2007 by Omar Kilani

A little while ago, the good folks at Google Code asked us if we were willing to share our experiences with using Google Gears to add offline functionality to RTM. As we're big fans of Google APIs (we do use a fair few of them) and I'm an especially big fan of Google Code (I love Google Project Hosting! :), I was more than happy to oblige.

So, if you're interested in offline web applications (and I mean, who isn't?!), feel free to check out Taking web applications offline with Google Gears at the Google Code Developer Knowledge Base.

Many thanks to Aaron, Brian, Dan, David and Quang from Google for their help and feedback, and Charles, Emily, Gavin and Neil for reviewing the article.

Remember The Milk in PC World

Wednesday, June 27, 2007 by Emily Boyd

The Second Golden Age of Software:

Oh, and consider this: The RTM team consists of two people (and, the service's site says, one stuffed monkey). I don't know how many programmers Microsoft has working on Outlook, but it's a heck of a lot more than that. And with Outlook 2007 only months old, it may be years before there's a big upgrade.

In other words, a couple of enterprising folks have built a better, faster-evolving solution than the world's largest software company has.

Thanks Harry, but it's really Bob who does all the work around here!

Thursday, March 22, 2007 by Emily Boyd

Many thanks to all the readers who voted for us in the APC Magazine Internet Technology Awards. We were honoured to be named amongst the finalists for the best web-based application in the consumer category. The award winners were announced last night, and while we didn't win our category, we were thrilled to see the award go to another web application that's developed in Sydney: Google Maps. We built our Locations feature on Google Maps and love their work — congratulations to the team on their award!

Surrounded by milk

Sunday, December 31, 2006 by Omar Kilani

Emily was recently surrounded by many bottles and cartons of milk, placed in front of a camera, and photographed. So I thought it was only natural to attempt to share said photo with everyone:

For those of you who are curious, pick up a copy of the current (Dec/Jan) issue of Australian Anthill magazine, and read all about Emily in the article, 'On the front line with Australia's web 2.0 pioneers'.

Tatsuya Yamaji has a great article in Business Mobile (Japanese only) on using Remember The Milk with David Allen's Getting Things Done or GTD time management method. For those interested in GTD, some of our users have also been posting some helpful tips and tricks about GTD on the forum.

In other news, the site was recently featured as Website of the Day on Radio 2, so a warm welcome to those BBC listeners who are new to Remember The Milk!
