Quick add from the desktop

It would be awesome to be able to have a global keyboard shortcut that brings up a box like the Google desktop search bar does on double tapping ctrl. You could then type in your task, hit enter and carry on working.

You can do this, on a Mac, with Quicksilver and either email or Twitter. Lifehacker wrote about a Windoze Quicksilver-like app recently, so if you're not on a Mac, you might try that, too.

Excellent, thanks for those. I also came across Launchy, which is similar to Quicksilver but for Windows. Check this out:

I wonder how many people have tried doing quick add from a twitter desktop app. Seems like it would be convenient enough.

The best alternative that I have come up with is to just dedicate a browser to RTM. Basically, Chrome is my primary browser and I run Firefox with the A Bit Better RTM extension as a dedicated RTM app.

The technically-inclined may ask: Why not use Fluid or a site-specific browser? Because add-on/extension support is a bit flaky in Fluid and A Bit Better RTM is essential. Especially since the good folks at RTM have no interest in building a keyboard shortcut to move a task between lists.

If RTM wasn't so stingy with their API keys, I would have developed something for this already... hint hint RTM :)

Why has a feature like this not been implemented for nine years?
