MeisterTask Gmail Add-on

MeisterTask for Gmail
is a free add-on that turns your emails into tasks at the click of a button. 
The subject line of the forwarded email will be turned into the task title, while the body of the email will be added to the task in the form of task description. Both can be modified inside the add-on if you like.
