Woke up this morning to see a new little icon at the top of my DroidX screen. The pull-down asked, "Free time today? Why don't you make an appointment with Dr. Aukerman?" When I went to the task screen, it asked "Are you ever going to do this?" I've been playing with several task apps, trying to figure a way to integrate this into my Google-centric productivity world. Of all of them, Astrid seem to stand out not just because it has a voice and personality, but because the personality seems to come from it's core functionality, moving it beyond a mere application. It remains to be seen if I actually use it, but it was a nice moment that moved it ahead of the pack (and prompted me to write this).
