Quick Add for Mac

Can we get a quick add for mac. It helps a great deal when you are on other applications and can quickly add a task that you have to remember.

This is a big reason I haven't committed fully to RTM yet. I'm so used to using this in other apps (e.g. Todoist, Wunderlist) to avoid switching context when I need to just note down a task so I don't forget it.

I'm using Bettertouchtool on the Mac to have a global hot key that brings RTM to the front and automate press T to create a new task.

A native global hotkey combo to add a task would be fantastic.

Update: I wrote a very simple Alfred 3 workflow to add tasks to RTM via Rumember (I use Alfred for dozens of things, so it was the natural choice). Quick, simple, reliable.

Here is the add task UI in action:

And it sends feedback once it has the API acknowledgement. It typically returns a result in 1-1.5 seconds for me.

Let me know if you want a copy.
