I’m a big fan of GTD (Getting Things Done!) and keeping my life as organized and structured as possible. I Currently use a simple WhiteBoard at home with Sharpie Pens to jot down everything that I need to know. I use this method simply because the GTD apps like Remember the Milk, Things for Mac are an overkill for a guy like me, and to date didn’t really find a simple web based ToDo list.
Yesterday while browsing through my RSS Subscriptions I chanced upon TeuxDeux thanks to John Gruber(Daring Fireball) who described it as Clever, simple, date-based online to-do app. I immediately signed up and I’ve been hooked to it ever since.
As you can see from the Screenshot the interface of TeuxDeux is very clean, minimal and simple. Its the kind of UI that most of us normal users need, rather than the complex UI’s of other GTD apps.
The best thing that I like about TeuxDeux is the fact that it kinda resembles your personal diary, in which you jot down stuff you need to do.
How Does it Work?
To add a task, you just need to type into the textbox. It’ll be automatically be added to the todo list. To remove a task hover over the task and click the cross button. And the best thing, if you don’t complete a task today it will automatically be added to tomorrow’s tasks. Tasks can be drag dropped from different days, which makes it flexible.
The Days that are already past are in light faded Gray, while Today is in Red, and the future dates in the deep black. A simple but clever presentation idea.
Here’s a demo video that shows how TeuxDeux works :
So if you are finding it difficult to keep your life in order, and need to remember things to do, you must try out TeuxDeux.
