Tasks are basically a goner - they have been neglected but won't be removed. But... tasks on smart phones are totally dependent on the available apps as none of the mail apps include tasks. IMO, there are some good apps for apple & android that use exchange tasks (i like ios 3rd party apps better) - not sure about windows phone. TaskTask is the only one i can think of offhand but i don't have phone handy to tell you about others (i think I've tried every task app.)

Thanks for your reply ,
When you write " Tasks are basically a goner " can you explain why would Microsoft neglect an app that has millions upon millions of users like my self ?
So which mail app also has tasks and syncs from desktop to smartphone and vice versa ?

Actually... only a small % of Outlook users use tasks (they track this and more using the option to send data back to MS.) Part of the reason is because it didn't meet users needs - with things like subtasks. (Most task apps aren't much more than a to-do list.)

They bought Wunderlist and are working on integrating it into outlook - time will tell as to how well they do. i honestly don't see it as an improvement - i want something more like a Project lite where i can have subtasks, not a to-do list.
