If you’re like me, you’ve tried many to-do-list tools and you’ve never been satisfied.
This past month I’ve been using one that might survive the free-trial period. It’s called TeuxDeux.
The developers of TeuxDeux, which is made in Brooklyn, New York, say their purpose with TeuxDeux was to create a to-do list that’s:
• Simple enough to compete with a piece of paper.
• Beautiful enough that you wouldn’t mind (and might even enjoy) looking at it all day.
In my opinion, the developers did what they set out
teux deux to do.
TeuxDeux is web-based, and it comes with a free iPhone app (a native app isn’t available yet for non-iPhone users); I have an iPhone 4S, and the app has worked flawlessly so far. After a 30-day free trial, TeuxDeux is $3/month or $24/year.
One feature I really like is being able to create custom “Someday” lists, which are separate from the daily lists. Right now I’m using “Someday” lists primarily for capturing ideas for my business.
Many time-management products start out being simple, but relentless demands/requests from users for new features lead to a bloated, cumbersome tool. The beauty of TeuxDeux is its simplicity, and I hope the developers are able to avoid feature-creep.
TeuDeux isn’t for everybody, but if you place value on excellent design and you want a to-do list that functions like a paper list, then TeuxDeux might be for you.
