Right now I use Astrid as a task manager, since I can share tasks with our LoCo Team members and everything works fine. I use it with Google Chrome and Android, but I don't really like using Chrome for that.

So, does anyone know if there is an app that does it? What it need to have:

  • Ability to share tasks with others;
  • Android app;
  • Ubuntu app.

Aside from that, I don't need much. Astrid is awesome, but without a desktop client it's a little annoying to use.

Hands down Producteev

It supports the sharing your looking for, and has a windows, web, and mac, version. The web verison (in conjunction with the unity web app stuff) works exceptionally well. (in fact the windows and mac versions seem like webkit wrappers anyway)

I can accept tasks from email, im, or some other inputs (including the apps of course). It has decent tagging. There are iOS and Android apps as well.

Thanks for the suggestion! I will take a look :) – Julian Fernandes Nov 28 '12 at 17:08
It seems there is no Unity Web Apps integration, but there is a Chrome App, so I just installed it, made a .desktop file for Unity and there we go (: – Julian Fernandes Nov 28 '12 at 17:28
Unity Webapps got better (if my memory serves) in 12.10. But from chrome if your running the chrome app, under tools, there is "create application shortcuts". That should launch a simple chrome window. And work quite will with unity. – coteyr Nov 28 '12 at 17:33

I'm using Unity Webapps, but it doesn't ask me to integrate with Producteev. But since there is a Chrome App, I just created a .desktop file that makes it like in your screenshot :) – Julian Fernandes Nov 28 '12 at 17:50
