I have been in search for the perfect note app ever since I’ve been using the iPod touch. I have downloaded a bunch of to do list apps over the years, but most of the time, I end up not using them.
However, a few weeks ago I discovered my ideal to do list app. Teux Deux has perfectly combined two things I love: simplicity and efficiency. Its layout is uncomplicated and the overall user experience is very smooth.
Plus, the words Teux Deux sounds really epic (or is it just me?). 🙂
It allows me to easily enter the things that I need to do for the day without having to access many icons and different sections within the app. Once you open it, you will be immediately taken to the current day. A blank rectangular field is located at the top where you can enter the specific task you need to do within a few seconds.
Unlike most to do list apps, Teux Deux doesn’t put a check box before the listed task. That’s why it looks really simple and neat. So how do you know if you’ve already completed the task? Easy. You just need to tap the specific task and it will be crossed out. It will then automatically go to the bottom of the list. This allows you to focus on the remaining tasks for that day.
I usually enter my to do list the night before. Teux Deux also makes this easy to do. The days of the week are conveniently located at the bottom, so you don’t have to open an entire calendar just to access other days of the week.
Even though I try my best to plan my day, there are always a couple of things left undone in my to do list. This usually happens when I get caught up watching YouTube clips. 🙂 The good thing is that Teux Deux carries over the undone tasks the next day, so you don’t have to enter it again. Plus, if the list looks unusually long, it’s a good reminder that I’ve been slacking off for the past few days.
One final awesome thing about Teux Deux app is that it actually has a browser counterpart. So the to do lists you’ve entered in your app will automatically sync with your account in the TeuxDeux website. This is quite handy if I’m too lazy to get up from my seat and get my iPod. 😉
I’m really satisfied with this to do list app, and I think I’m going to be using this for a long time.
Do you have a favorite to do list app? Or do you prefer making a mental note?
