Whether you’re taking out the trash or picking up your dry-cleaned suit, there are always things you need to do. You may have already installed a Tasks app to keep you in the loop, but you can guess that Google would like you to give their Tasks app a try.
If you like apps that keep things simple, you might like the Google Tasks app. At least you can be sure that the app is from a company whose other services you probably already use.
What Google Tasks offers (Android)
Apart from offering very essential functionality for a Tasks app, Google Tasks even makes the app practical to use. Hit the “Join New Task” button and add what you need to do. To paste details to your new task, press the “+” sign.
If you select the uneven lines, you can paste details to your new task, and by tapping the Calendar icon, you can even paste an anniversary. So far there are no options to paste a specific image or time to your task.
You can also change the name of your ribbon if you are not satisfied with the name. Tap on the three vertical dots at the bottom right, and there you can change the name or remove it altogether. At the top, you can even change the order in which you view your tasks. For example, you can sort them by anniversary or sort them the way you created them.
There is also the possibility of pasting subtasks to your already created tasks. If you have already created your task, just tap on it and the “Join subtasks” option should be the last one.
Tap the dropdown next to the task name and you can move your task to another ribbon. When you’ve completed a task, tap the failed circle next to the task and it will be placed on the completed tasks ribbon. To edit your assignment, simply tap on the pen icon.
Drag and drop your tasks
It is also possible to place your tasks in a different order. Touch and hold the task you want to move and release it in the order you want. You can even make a particular task stand out from the rest by placing it slightly to the right of where you drop it.

Having a task a little to the right of the rest is little that cannot be done in desktop translation.
Google Tasks on your desktop
Given that Tasks is from Google, it will even sync with your Gmail account. However, it will only appear in Gmail if you have the new design. To switch to the new Gmail design, click the gear wheel and then click the option to try the new template.
Once you have the new design, you will see some adapted icons below your profile picture. One of those icons will be Tasks, and it will have a blue circle with a time pen in the middle.
The options you’ll see in desktop translation are the same as you saw on Android, except for one option. Clicking on the three vertical dots will give you the option to sort your tasks by anniversary, your own order, rename the ribbon, or use a keyboard scramble.
This last option does not appear in Tasks for Android. Instead, it offers an option to delete all completed tasks.
How to Paste an Email to the Google Tasks Ribbon
If there’s an email you want to object to but keep forgetting about it, add it to your to-do ribbon. Just find the email and drag it to your already open task ribbon.
Even if this email gets lost in the sea of other emails in your inbox, just clicking the email in the ribbon will open it automatically.
As you can see, Google Tasks is not an app that will bombard you with tons of features. If you are looking for an app that makes things simple, this app may be of interest to you. What do you think of the application? Share your opinion in the comments below.
