    Hello. I just got my WP7 HTC Arrive, and am liking it so far!

    My question is, what would be the best replacement to the good ol' Tasks that were part of the Outlook (Calendar, Contacts and Notes) of WM6.5? I really liked the way you could easily set up and manage a to-do list with reminders, notes in it, and most importantly due dates with repeated loops (weekly, monthly, every last weekday of the month, etc..).

    Thank you for anybody who can reply with a good fix.

    Until then..........

    I've been using Appa Mundi Tasks. It's ok. It syncs with Exchange and supports start date and due date. I haven't set up any recurring tasks yet though. It has a live tile that will show the number of active incomplete tasks (i.e. with a start date of today or earlier). It's a little buggy and usually takes a few minutes to update. A nice bonus in NoDo that I've noticed with it is that it will match the system theme color. It didn't do that pre-NoDo but I'm not sure why that would have made a difference.

    -R

    P.S. it's unfortunately pretty expensive ($3.99) but does have a free trial that is fully functional up to six tasks. Just remember that the trial doesn't have a live tile if that's important.
