TeuxDeux: a simple online to-do list manager

TeuxDeux is an new online to-do list manager created by Tina Roth Eisenberg (AKA Swissmiss) and Fictive Kin. It’s not as full-featured as some other online to-do list applications, but if you’re looking for something that’s easy to use and has a strikingly elegant and minimal user-interface, then you should definitely take it for a test drive or, at very least, watch this short tutorial from their site:

    I tried out TeuxDeux yesterday, after seeing it on Swiss Miss. It’s amazing. Love, love, love the simplicity of it! Pretty intuitive and easy to use, too.

    I just gave it a look, and I’m completely won over. To me, Remember the Milk is almost too developed- I don’t want to sync my entire life, I just want to keep a to-do list. I love the way TeuxDeux works intuitively and the great interface. Sold.

    I’ve only been using it for two days and it is already better at keeping my print-zine production schedule on track, not to mention Christmas and Chanukah. Go Tina!

    A quirky sense of humor is enough to get me to give anything a try. Brilliant marketing ploy. ;)

    Looks nice – but I do still recommend Todoist.com. It’s just as elegant and a lot more flexible.

    I’ve been using this since swissmiss first blogged about it and it won me over completely. Most of my to-do’s are now in TeuxDeux, but I still use RTM for more advanced tasks, like repeating to-do’s and stuff like that.

    I love SwissMiss and her minimalist approach to design, but I have to admit, I’m sorta burned out by all of these To Do apps — especially the ones that require an internet connection. I went back to old school pen and paper months ago and don’t regret it a second; I’m much more productive that way.

    Computer To Do apps add more clutter to my computer and more clutter to my brain because I have to remember to update the lists. I prefer to unplug from activities that require me to spend more time on the computer if there is an offline equivalent that’s just as easy.

    I like it, but I miss being able to set repeating tasks… or is it possible after all ?

    I absolutely love this app! Thank you for pointing it out to us! It’s so simple to sign up, and once I did, I immediately started adding tasks to the lists for this week. I like how simplistic it is. Add a task, mark through it when you’re done! This app will replace my to-do list for the rest of this calendar year. And I actually like being able to find it via browser. It eliminates the need to carry a notebook in my person.

    All that being said, it’s good for someone without a hectic schedule. For instance, about mid-January, I’ll be starting school. So I’ll have work tasks and school tasks to keep up with. I don’t think this app is conducive to keeping up with reading assignments and the like. I only say that because 1) some classes do not allow us to use laptops, which means I’ll be writing down assignments and copying them to the browser and 2) I like having my assignments laid out in front of me on paper. There’s just something about putting pen to paper.

    Of course, I may just feel this way because I just purchased my first adult day planner and cannot wait to use it. Maybe after a month with TeuxDeux, I’ll be ready to give up paper all together! ;)

    Great idea. So obviously there’s room for creativity in the todo web app space. I like it, but usually go for a very simple approach like notepad or another very basic to do app I found called toTdo. http://www.totdo.com

    […] TeuxDeux (ok, maybe less "tech" than "organization") […]
