Google Tasks helps many of us to remember all those things that keep us busy. Today, Google is inviting to try out the new Google Tasks API.

"Using the Google Tasks API, developers can -- for the very first time -- create rich applications which integrate directly with Google Tasks.

The Google Tasks API provides developers with a powerful set of API endpoints for retrieving and modifying Google Tasks content and metadata. It offers a simple, RESTful interface and supports all basic operations required to query, manage and sync a user's tasks and task lists. The API uses JSON for data representation and works with multiple authentication mechanisms including OAuth 2.0," explined Google.

Client libraries are provided for several major programming environments and should help you get up and running quickly.

If you want to see the API in action check out the Google Tasks Chrome Extension.

The API is available in Labs and can be activated for your project through the API Console. Get started today by trying the Tasks API yourself using the API Explorer and taking a look at the documentation.
