                -FAQ. Anthony Feint. 4 Nov. 2009 <http://task.fm/faq.php>.

H. Task.fm can be used easily for students in an educational advantage. It could be used as a task manager for a class, it could be applied as a syllabus and update students about upcoming homework exams and study sessions. It could also be a way to just manage your everyday schedule. Many students do not get homework done or do not study for exams because they forget and/or do not write it down. A teacher could make a group and update her students this way. This process would also be beneficial to students working on group projects for meetings and deadlines. -Jessica Rose

2.  Use it to create sms, email or twitter reminders for yourself. Task.fm can understand your natural language so you don't need to enter dates and times manually. This is very convenient and is not as time consuming as some other ways of reminders might be such as datebooks, or other things.

2.  Task.fm is free and allows you to make an unlimited number of reminders. 

3.  I believe that it is more usable because it is free and will be more appealing to people because of this.  The unlimited number of reminders is convenient so that you do not have to keep track of how many you have and if you have enough room left to add more.

3. Being able to use Task fm with other applications that many people already use is very convenient.  Task fm works with the applications to send you reminders about your schedule, what you have planned for the day, and what you need to do.  It is a great way to never forget what is important to you, and easy to use because it is connected to other applications that you use daily.

This program is to remind you and to list things that you have planned. It gives you updates and allows you to edit previous postings. This is unique because helps you remember what you have planned an helps you keep your day and/or appointments in check and wants you to be on time. It's beneficial and a resource that I don't get from anywhere else.

2. [http://task.fm/user_contacts.php]|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php

The link above is a way to add new contacts to your task.fm account and this allows you to be in a greater contact with them, this allows you to be in contact with them and to communicate anbout the date or time that you are meeting. It's unique because it allows you to show them the update and to remind the person that you are meeting with as well as yourself.

3. [http://task.fm/user_contacts.php]|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php|http://task.fm/user_contacts.php

I am finding that the most convenient part is the fact that you can add a group to your contacts. This is a way to keep in touch with a group that you are working  with, this seems very convenient for group project because it will give and update to you and your entire group. This is a strong convenience and without a doubt the easiest way to help keep everyone in one group informed and help people keep track of what they are doing and when they are doing it with an update that can be sent to them by email or text.

1. Task.fm is considered more simple and user-friendly than other reminder-type sites.

2. While other sites like Remember the Milk integrate with applications such as Twitter, iPhone, and Gmail, Task.fm simply sends an SMS (text message) or email message to the user as a reminder. For a small fee, the user can receive an actual phone call.

3. Task.fm is unique because it offers a simpler alternative to similar sites.

http://www.readwriteweb.com/enterprise/2009/07/taskfm-a-remember-the-milk-alternative.php

1. Task.fm uses voice recognition.

2. Task.fm uses a semantic technology in order to allow the user to actually verbally tell the program what event needs to be done and when it needs to be done. The only difficult issue is that the user must provide a specific time for the event (such as “7pm Tomorrow”).

3. This is unique because similar programs do not use voice recognition and need to be manually typed into the service.

1. Task.fm uses credits that are purchased.

2. Task.fm only allows 15 SMS reminders per month, although the email reminders are free. That being said, you can upgrade to the Pro version for $3.99/month.
3. A major downfall of Task.fm is that it lacks features that similar sites have while having a more expensive price tag. For example, Rememberthemilk.com only has a cost of $25/year.
