Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I frequently need to get work done in places where I have no connectivity, so I need a local, out of browser application (meaning, still functions when there is no internet connectivity, but syncs when it can) to integrate with Google Calendars and Tasks for reminders. I'm not finding any such thing on the desktop. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure this is the best place to ask questions like this. Consider asking it in Superuser.com –  Renan Jul 18 '11 at 18:38

Thunderbird with the Lightning add-on (or just the Sunbird app) with the Provider for Google Calendar add-on will give you a desktop client to Google calendar. Unfortunately, Tasks is a bit more problematic as it's not very mature however there is an API available.

I'll suggest not one but two! The best one is written in adobe air and available here- http://www.jashsayani.com/my-softwares/. I've tested it and it works well.

The second option is available here.

Also do try out the Google tasks new tab where every tab in Google Chrome becomes a Google Tasks tab. You can use the address bar to browse sites. Chrome Id- bokbgdhblfolpfanocjafjhpjkebhlf or type 'New Tab to Tasks' in the webstore.
