Google tasks are not nor will ever be 'real'. a la Palm Datebk, iambic 
Agendus, Palm's own tasks, etc. Which is why Palm PIM users have not 
jumped whole heartedly upon google's 'suite', let alone before Android.

IIRC there are korganizer <-> gmail solutions, but for tasks, all are 
kludges.

Assuming one trust google.


Is the same true of gmail, non-gmail e-mail, etc., off-line even? 
(these days / android)


As for Zim, I guess, at that level, we're back into the multi-reminder 
situations. Even if it ran on Android. If one uses zim that way.
