Agile Task Mobile App

So a friend of mine, @jaderobbins, and some of his buddies wrote a cool productivity service called AgileTask and I have been using it for the last two months and find it well suited in helping me get things done each day.  I like it so much that I wanted to get a mobile version for my Droid Incredible.  Unfortunately, there is no app at this time.  However, as I have wanted to write an android application for months now and AgileTask has an easy to use API I have started.

I looked at Titanium’s Appcelerator at first and didn’t get to far and then I ran into rhomobile as I was looking for something that used Ruby since that is what I use day in and day out at work currently.  Having started playing with the framework yesterday afternoon I have already been able to churn out an app that can pull my tasks for “Today” and my “Icebox”.  So needless to say I find this framework Super Awesome  right now.

So I the next few days I’ll put together a git repo (https://github.com/scleveland/AgileTaskMobile) and crank out some more feature and hopefully will have an alpha/beta app in the next week for other AgileTask Pro users to use (Sorry but you will need to have a Pro account to use the app as API keys are only available for Pro Users – but the price is totally worth it for such an awesome software as a service).

Oh and I almost forgot… The rhomobile framework can also output an iPhone app using the same code so I’ll also play with testing that (Blackberry is also supported but I’m not motivated to churn anything out for that – someone else can fork the project if they wish to do a blackberry port)
