As of now we don't have any plans to implement task-managment functionality in Empower Mail Viewer. Basically because,
1. We believe its better for one product to do just one thing. A task-management app needs to be a separate product than a mail viewer. This allows the independent app to do 'more' and not be confined by the first product. In fact, thats why we made InstaSpell a separate app - had we tied it with EMV we would have been restricted to emails only, and not been able to do things like spell check in SMS etc, coloring etc. An independent product is independent and has the freedom to grow its future course without being subject to boundaries of a dependent app.
2. I also believe that ultimately, users must have a choice - even if we create a task mgmt app, it should not be tied with EMV, because a user of EMV should have the choice to use competing task management apps from other vendors. We want to ensure that people using other competitive products are not denied the opportunity to use them.
Also, at the moment, we don't have any plans for making a task-management application. We will recommend you to Trial run any of the existing task-mgmt apps (PocketDay, Follow-Up, TodoMatrix, NextAction etc). Depending upon your needs you may find the one best suited for you.
