Hey Android Crew,
I've been searching for a month to find a solution for getting my tasks onto my Nexus One. There are suites like Roadsync and TouchDown, but I'm really only looking for a task solution at this point.
Here is my setup:
Outlook 2007 (eventually 2010)
I have accepted that there is no Task only Activesync solution.
What I'm hoping to settle for now, is a service that I can sync with my Outlook application. And my extension, Outlook with sync with my exchange account. Then an Android app that will sync with this Third Party service.
The services I've been able to identify so far are:
Remember the Milk
Any thoughts on how I can make either of these work? Or perhaps there is some other service?
If not, then I may have to settle for a desktop sync like MissingSync or CompanionLink.
thanks in advanced...

Thanks for everyone's replies. I'm getting the feeling that there isn't a full circle solution for me. I suppose I will have to think about whether its worth me moving my task list to another system.
Even Missing Sync doesn't have a desktop solution for tasks.
Am I missing something? Why does this seem so hard? iOS, Android... even WinPhone 7 may not support tasks out of the box. Hmm....

I know you mentioned a task only, but the more i researched it myself as well I have come to realize that Touchdown is by far the best at syncing my tasks.
In fact you don't have to use the mail portions at all if you disable which folders get sync'd.
I mostly use tasks at my desk via outlook, so I really just needed a way to DISPLAY them on my phone.. I use touchdown to pull them in, and then "Pure Calendar Widget" to display the tasks alongside my meetings and other items in the widget. I hardly ever open the Touchbook app itself.
Just a thought.

Try using Touchdown. It is a full featured Exchange sync program that will sync Calendar, Tasks, and Contacts OTA.
It has a companion program called NitroNotes which can sync Outlook notes over USB. Works wonderfully! Best $20 I ever dropped on a mobile phone software pacakge.Thanks,

Thanks everyone. I've tried TouchDown before and thought it was pretty good. The only thing I didn't like was the Day view. I often have conflicting appointments at work and it seems to overlay them rather than putting them side by side. I like the Google calendar better in that regard.
I tried it again yesterday and realized all that I was missing with stock android setup. So I went ahead and purchased it. So now I have my Tasks and a better email client.
