BHive Google Tasks a Very Useful App to Sync Google Tasks on Android
Nov 1, 2011 5:25 PM –
BHive Google Tasks is relatively self-descriptive. It’s a useful Google tasks client that syncs seamlessly with your Google account, provides useful widgets and the ability to customize and edit tasks in a number of ways. The app is very functional, superb for people that either use Google Tasks and need a comprehensive client on Android, or someone looking for a really good to-do list creator.
Price: Free, $3.99 for full version.
Tested on: HTC Desire HD
Pros & Cons:
- Seamless syncing with Google Tasks!
- Easy to use!
- Cool widgets!
- Expensive for a to-do app.
I love a good To-Do app, and we’ve reviewed quite a few here at AndroidTapp, from the detailed and powerful and complex Due Today, to the immeasurably pretty Do It (Tomorrow).
I think it’s fair to say that BHive Google Tasks falls somewhere in between these apps in terms of functionality; while boasting the Google Tasks syncing, it lacks the level of detail that Due Today offers, yet still provides more in the way of task management than Do It (Tomorrow). This ultimately means that, like all such applications, BHive’s suitability comes down to how you use to-do lists.
BHive Google Tasks is simple to use and creating a task is intuitive and easy. The app syncs well with Google Tasks and, although the Android Market comments are rife with people saying it didn’t sync, I found it worked fine and synced without issue.
Beyond adding tasks, it lets you set reminders, deadlines, tags, recurring tasks, customizable sorting and filtering options, in addition to reorganization features that makes it simple to manage your tasks effectively. I felt that Due Today was an awesome application, chocked full of functionality and deep-rooted project management tools. It’s an app that would perhaps be overkill for someone wanting a very straightforward app for making simpler, more short-term task lists. This is where BHive excels, it would be ideal for people with busy lives who need to stay on top of tasks- setting deadlines and staying focussed.
BHive Google Tasks, while perfectly functional, isn’t as good-looking as say, Do It (Tomorrow) which has a rich and lustrous interface that looks incredible. While BHive lacks this, it still looks good and provides far more functionality; there’s a whole lot more under the bonnet and has far more options. A cool feature to note are the widgets which look really cool and present your tasks nicely on your homescreen, you also get a choice of sizes.

I believe that BHive Google Tasks is a significantly useful app that compliments the Google Tasks service well, presenting a useful and intuitive interface on your Android. The various features, and the homescreen widgets, make the app extremely functional indeed.
Ease of Use:
The app is simple to use and it’s very straightforward to create tasks and manage your lists. Being able to tag tasks, breaking them down into mini projects- further to setting recurring tasks and reminders, make the app functional without drowning you with information. The tasks can be created in an easy step-by-step process and this feel natural and uncomplicated.
This obviously depends on how busy you are! If you typically have several tasks to do every day, or set jobs you have to complete on a weekly basis, you can build a veritable calendar of deadlines and reminders you’ll need to use on a daily basis.
The interface is a nice combination of sleek looks and decent functionality so, while it isn’t as ‘pretty’ as apps like Do It (Tomorrow), it still looks good, and possibly more professional.
