Coming from an iPhone, one of the things I miss the most is the little red notification badges on my app icons. I don't understand why more Android apps don't have them (not even the phone!?).
I digress.
Is there an app available that both syncs with Google Tasks and uses a notification badge to keep track of the number of uncompleted tasks?

Try a different home screen manager. Launcher Pro does this on my phone for email and texts in the app shortcuts in the launcher bar. I don't use Google Tasks, so I can't speak to that one particularly.

Google Tasks is one component of their world that is still rather lacking, sadly. – eidylon Apr 29 '12 at 1:11

Tick tick is the only one I can find but unfortunately their implementation makes it pretty useless (the badge only goes up to 9)

You should try different launchers. Most of them are better than the stock ones. So e.g.: Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, Launcher Pro, and GO Launcher EX support adding notification badges.

The best todo app I've ever seen is Any.DO To-do List & Task List. Give it a try.

Could you please elaborate how this answers the question? Do the mentioned launchers bring the "notification badges", or does the "" app (links?), or is it a certain combination? – Izzy Mar 15 '13 at 23:56
Those launchers have the option to add notification badges, that's why I listed them. Here you can get Apex: – Alex Dumitru Mar 16 '13 at 12:22

Try SplenDo - To Do List. It shows badge with Today's task count + overdue task count like (2+3)
