With the announcement of Gmail's new Add-on Platform (, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see an updated Gmail Add-on for Remember the Milk to allow easy transfer of emails to todo items.

Yes -- this would be a killer app, especially since both Keep and Taks (the only Google attempts at task management) are , well, severely limited in their capabilities.

With one-time authentication, we could have:
* Ability to create tasks from emails
* Link the email
* Link any attached Drive files
* Show normal and smart lists.
* A Smart Add capable entry box.
* On par functionality on mobile platforms.

GMail add-on works like a charm. The one thing I miss (and it seems the ingredients are available) is a task entry box that is Smart Add capable. Least viable product would be a box somewhere in the UI (I understand you are bound to the right hand vertical area) where I can just type in the task, for it to get parsed on the server end. Notable difference from what the add-on already does is that it not be linked to any e-mail or more to the point that it is available in the e-mail list view, rather than only in the mail view.

Working up from that:
1) Smart Add feedback, like the desktop and web app do, when entering elements of the task.
2) Hotkey hook, to activate the UI and position cursor

Please? :)
