Two Free Services To Help Manage Your Life

Using a computer to manage your to-do list is often a better solution than using paper.  Things stay neat, even if you change a current entry or delete an old one.  And unlike a paper notebook, you can back up the computerised one easily.  Plus, if you use a web-based online system, your entries are available from any computer you use.  Or, of course, from your smartphone if you have web access.

I've recently been trying out two web-based systems which help to manage your to-do list.  

TeuxDeux (which sounds like To Do if you say it in a French accent) is the simplest and least cluttered of the two.  Its uncomplicated week-based layout makes it easy to enter items and arrange them.  There are also some additional features built in, such as automatically carrying forward items that haven't been completed.

You can sign up at

The other system is Toodledo, which is at  It's a more complex system, with more features, and also includes a built-in online notebook too.  Unlike TeuxDeux, which is free, Toodledo charges an annual subscription, but a basic account is free and this should suffice for most people.

I find TeuxDeux brings entries forward happily. Also using ClickTo you can highlight a to do as you are entering it and create a note in (say) SimpleNote when you want to.

I would suggest its free and has two important things that most other Task Management services do not have in their free versions:

Team Collaboration and Recurring tasks.

GQueues is not Gizmo friendly.
The following is available only for users with a paid subscription
~Google Calendar Integration
~Sharing (collaboration)
~Gmail Gadget for Google Apps
~Google Chrome Extension

Springpad is a better choices. Astrid is good too.

GQuesses is perfect and got very nice subtask system.
Great for GTD, great for programmers. Require google account, but gmail users can just go into it.
I definitely recommend it.

Astrid is another great product. I use it on my Android and I love it.
