This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Install the android app Gtasks before uninstalling Astrid. This app will ask if you want to import astrid tasks. Answer Yes and you are done ! GTasks syncs with Google tasks and your calendar. Took only 5 minutes to setup.

From http://weloveastrid.com/help-user-guide-astrid-v3/backups-sync/:

[Sync To] Google Tasks [In Astrid]:

Press Log In & Synchronize to and select the Google account you’d like to sync with.

  • Status: Displays whether you are syncing with Google Tasks and whether a sync was successful. It also provides useful stats such as when you last synced your phone.
  • Background Sync: Set up the interval at which the phone should perform an automatic sync. You can have intervals as short as every fifteen minutes or as long as every week.
  • Sync on Save: Option to sync individual tasks are they are saved on your phone.
  • Log Out: If you no longer want to sync to Google Tasks, simply log out.

This should get everything into Google Tasks before Yahoo! shuts Astrid down.
