Managing tasks is generally not a fun way to spend your time. We created Remember The Milk so that you no longer have to write your to-do lists on sticky notes, whiteboards, random scraps of paper, or the back of your hand. Over 5 million awesome people now use our apps to stay organized!

Our Story

Web app screenshot

Way back in 2004, two desperately disorganized people (that's us – co-founders Emily Boyd and Omar Kilani) were fed up with constantly forgetting things... yes, including the milk. Inspired by the awesomeness of Gmail, which had launched earlier that year, we decided to build a web app that would help us to end our disorganized ways.

We were joined by Bob T. Monkey, who brought some much-needed experience to the team (and as an added bonus, accepted remuneration entirely in bananas). We coded furiously for a year, and launched Remember The Milk in October 2005.

It turns out that there are a lot of other disorganized people all over the world! The app grew and grew... and grew some more. No longer just a web app, Remember The Milk is now the to-do list that's everywhere you are. We've developed apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry 10; gadgets for Gmail and Google Calendar; sync with Microsoft Outlook and Evernote; adding tasks via email, Siri, and Twitter; and a bunch more!
