Add tasks using Android share menu

chrispaton says:
Hi there,

My second RTM idea for today... I noticed that a recent update to Evernote for Android added a nifty feature that lets you note something in Evernote using the share menu on Android.

It would be great to do something similar for RTM. I imagine myself surfing a webpage on my phone and wanting to read an article properly later. I'd "Share this page" in the browser and RTM would appear as one of the entries on the list (using the android.intent.action.SEND I think). Choosing RTM would pop up the New task dialog with the task name and URL set appropriately.

Webpages are an obvious use case but various other apps in Android use the share menu and could become cool sources of input to RTM.

Cheers,
Chris Paton

When I check my google reader post or links received from twitter I would like to add as a task the articles that are too long to read now and such feature would allow to quickly add the link to be read later (with the possibility to assign a tag)

The way that we can "share" things on android is very effecient, and would be a natural way to add thing to rtm too.

I forgot to mention that my alternative solution is to send to my gmail account from which I email to rtm... Not as efficient, but it does the job...

I'd definitely extend my pro-membership period for this. Right now I'm using ReadItLater, but I'd rather just use rtm for this. The share-send intent is needed for that in the android-client though.

Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing this feature on my Android RTM as well. Everytime I tap the share button I am desperate that there is no RTM icon. I have to send an URL of interesting article to RTM through GMail application or via copy&paste :-(

Thanks,
ISim

RTM is one of the few productivity apps on Android that doesn't allow sharing in and out between apps.

I'm really disappointed that the RTM developers don't seem to listen to us here ... 25 bucks a years is quite a lot of money, therefore i expect these guys to start implementing such basic yet fundamental features asap!
