For remembering things I have to do while I'm driving, walking, showering, or otherwise away from my desk.

Combining the Trello API with Google Now (courtesy of the awesome Tasker, AutoVoice and RESTask apps), you can tell your Android phone, "OK, Google. I need to _______" and whatever is in the blank will automatically be added to your todo list.

Apps used:

- Trello API: https://trello.com/docs/

- Tasker: http://goo.gl/iv0WHl

- AutoVoice: http://goo.gl/pdp3Cm

- RESTask: http://goo.gl/nt2aD1

High-level how-To:

1) AutoVoice to parse the command, if it starts with "I need to" it passes it on to Tasker.

2) In Tasker, choose which list to add the task to based on whether the command has the word "today" in it.

3) After that, using an Auth token from Trello, use RESTask to invoke the Trello API.

If there's enough interest, I'll write-up a complete tutorial.

For step 2 what function did you use? shell scripts, launch app, etc. Please explain arguments used. Also, does the phone need to be rooted to interact with Trello this way? I was able to accomplish same function with the email to Trello functions with Tasker. However your way is cleaner and faster!

Or you can just write a small script that syncs Google Tasks to trello
