HTC Tasks - an application using the Sense SDK to manage your Outlook tasks
I always wondered why my HD2 did not come with a replacment app for the stock tasks application, especially since Sense replaces almost everything. Anyway, I downloaded eboelzner's Sense SDK and startet writing this little app today.

Requirements:
  • Windows Phone 6.x
  • .netCF 3.5
  • (W|Q)VGA device
Current features (very basic):
  • Add Task
  • Localization (English, German, Spanish; auto-detect language)
  • Sense UI
  • change task status
  • change importance
  • change subject
Future Features:
  • Settings
  • Change other task properties (description, due date, etc.)
  • maybe other languages
  • images showing importance
Localization:
Oh and I would be glad if someone could take a look at my Spanish localization and tell me if something's wrong (my grammar is miserable and I'm not familiar with the Spanish techno-babble) and maybe somebody wants to translate this into other languages as well. So please contact me via PM if you are interested in helping me.

Excellent! Sounds very promising. I also wondered why the Tasks had been left untouched by HTC....

In my opinion pTasks is not very fingerfriedly, which is pretty important if you have a device with capacitive touchscreen.

HTC Task sounds great. I use the WinMo-Task every day... it works very good but its so ugly.

A question: Do you want the important tasks to be colored?

I encountered a really strange bug. When I change the tasks StartDate and Update the task (Task.Update()) I get a Win32 Exception. Has any other .NET CF developer an idea what could be causing this?

edit: found out what the problem was. StartDate has (logically) be before DateCompleted.

Makes me wish I knew more about coding. I'm useless when it comes to that kind of thing...
