Frequently asked questions.
1. Why are some tasks marked in red and some in gray?
A: The red tasks are the ones that were changed on the iPhone, but changes were not yet submitted to google.com The gray tasks are the ones that were not changed, or where changes were already submitted to google.com
2. What is Google Apps?
A: Google Apps is Google's offering for businesses - it allows one to create a set of gmail mailboxes under their own domain name instead of gmail.com and includes the usual stuff like calendar, docs etc.
A few simple rules:
- If your email is @gmail.com or @googlemail.com you don't need Google Apps and you can't use it.
- If your email is @somethingelse.com (or @somethingelse.edu) but when you login you see a gmail-like interface it's probably Google Apps. Inquire with the person who gave you access to the mailbox.

5. Can import a list of tasks?

6. Is it safe to give the gmail password to GeeTasks?
Yes it is as safe as anything can possibly be on the iPhone. Consider:
- Apple does not do security review of the submitted apps, but they do remove from the appstore the apps known to violate privacy. If the app you are using has been out for some time it's probably OK.
- Memengo, Inc, the developer of GeeTasks, has been also developing and selling Memengo Wallet (a dedicated password management app for iPhone). We've been in business of trust and securty since the beginning of the App Store in 2008, for three years now. Thousands of users are enjoying the convenience and security of our products.
- Your Gmail password is stored in iPhone's keychain just like any other password is stored on the iPhone (e.g. your e-mail or mobileme password).
- You Gmail password is only ever sent to Google for login, and is not sent anywhere else
- Special code was written to make sure that your password does not end up in the logs or crash dumps.
