We’ve been using Teuxdeux here at kc web design kent for a while now and we love it! Its simple, effective and in front of your eyes all day as part of your browser. It makes writing simple to-do lists effortless and completing those tasks a joy.
While using Teuxdeux in your browser window is almost pure Nirvana, there is a better way. We’ve moved over to using Fluid app to create a stand-alone version of Teuxdeux that sits in the Mac dock as its own app. Fluid app – Fluid lets you create a Site Specific Browser (SSB) out of any website or web application, effectively turning your favorite web apps into desktop apps – lets us run Teuxdeux outside of the browser as an app and one of the side effects of this is that as a Fluid app it seems to refresh its self automatically. When you go to the app first thing in the morning its already on todays list where as in a browser window you have to manually refresh. Its a small thing, but it makes a big difference.
This shows the power of good usability and that small features that benefit the user can make a huge difference to the experience of using an app or website.
