    Default Task Manager for S5 on Verizon

    I've got a stock S5 on Verizon that came pre-loaded with the Email and Calendar (not S-Planner) apps. I use MS Exchange to sync up my phone with my corporate email and calendar. From what I've found, there doesn't seem to be a task manager pre-loaded which allows me to view / modify my Outlook tasks that are already syncing with my device. Can anyone recommend a good task manager app that is friendly with Exchange (two-way sync) or is there already a tool pre-loaded that I'm just not aware of?

    Thanks!

    I could be wrong but if you look in the calendar app, hit the top right button for calendars to sync you will see your calendar and tasks.

    It is definitely syncing tasks, but I'd like to see a consolidated task list rather than only seeing tasks appear in a calendar view on the day they are due.

    I'm more interested in a task manager that syncs with Exchange than I am a calendar app. The default calendar works fine, I just can't find a way to view my tasks...

    I use TouchDown and I believe it handles tasks the way you want to. It is a paid app, but I have found it to be worth every penny. It does have a nice trial period too.

    I thought that when you are in the "manage account" tab you check off which fields you want to synch and takes was one of them?

    That's correct. My tasks are currently syncing, and I can see them in the Calendar app on the day they are due, but I'd like to be able to see my tasks in a simple list format (not only on the calendar). Am I missing this feature/app somewhere?

    I downloaded the "Tasks and Notes" app. Once I got the exchange server settings entered correctly, it seems to meet my needs. Anyone have any other suggestions for task list apps that sync up with a corporate exchange account?

    Maybe you already found it out, but I was struggling with the same thing and finally found it by happenstance.
    1. Open calendar.
    2. Hit Calendar on upper left corner of screen.
    3. Choose Agenda from the list.
    4. Choose Tasks from drop down box in upper right corner.
