Android users: Take the Astrid challenge and win a free myTouch 3G

We all know time is a valuable thing we do not want to waste.  Keeping a task list can help you prioritize the way you spend your time, but it can be difficult to maintain.  The evolution of Android and other smartphone platforms has changed the way we organize data.  Now that we have live access to all our data on the go, it is easier to be informed and make smarter decisions.

Astrid is an Android application that helps you get things done.  By creating a series of small tasks, you can work toward accomplishing a larger goal.  Astrid helps along the way by prioritizing your tasks, providing persuasive reminders, and synchronizing with your online accounts.  Currently, Astrid supports Remember The Milk and Google Calendar.  The latest update also ads location based support with Locale.

Look at what current Astrid users are saying:
