Many of us know that one person who makes a list for everything, whether it’s groceries, Christmas presents, or homework. I’m not going to lie… I’m that person!
As a full-time public relations student with a job and an internship, I have a lot of things on my mind at all times, and I know I’m not the only one. That is why I am always looking for ways to stay organized, and one of those ways for me is to make lists. I don’t always like to use my notes section as a to-do list, and I lose track of paper notes like it’s nobody’s business.
That is until I found TeuxDeux. TeuxDeux is an app and website that allows users to make an easy, simple to-do list.
According to the website, “If you like making to-do lists, you will love TeuxDeux. The idea was to build a bare-bones, but visually compelling and highly usable to-do app. Use the browser-based TeuxDeux at work/home and then take your to-dos on the road with the iPhone app.”
TeuxDeux allows users to create a to-do list, reorder, edit and cross off items, repeat tasks, and plan for future tasks. You can add items to your list directly from your iPhone app, or on the website, and it automatically syncs your changes to all of your devices.
One major con of TeuxDeux is that it is not available for Android devices. If you have an iPhone, you can take your lists with you wherever you go, but if you don’t have an Apple product, you can only use the website. TeuxDeux needs to create an Android app if it wants to continue to grow.
PR practitioners with an iPhone could benefit from TeuxDeux. Anyone in the public relations field has a ton of things to do all at once, and it can sometimes be hard to stay organized on what needs to be done, on what day and in what order. TeuxDeux is an app that allows everyone to create a list, rearrange and add tasks as the user sees fit, and can be taken on the go directly from your iPhone. Anyone in the PR field who needs help staying organized should check out TeuxDeux!
