No sooner do we write about how to spruce up Toodledo with User Styles, than Toodledo goes out and spruces itself up with a new user interface. Earlier today, the interface was rolled out. The bad news? The interface conflicts with the user style I was using, and probably others as well. The good news? The default user interface is pretty nice on its own.
If you’re a Toodledo user, let us know in the comments what you think about the new look. If you previously tried Toodledo, but were turned off by its appearance, you might want to take another look. One aspect of Toodledo that hasn’t changed is its power and customization options. The new UI provides you will all sorts of sorting options (contexts, folders, and more), and still retains the power of saved searches. Most of those options were there before, but harder to find and use. In fact, most of Toodledo works the same way as it did previously, but it is now much more pleasant to use.
If you like to skin or theme Toodledo, don’t despair. The developer has already indicated that themes will be making a return at a later date. The developer is also looking into requests to make the left sidebar collapsible. I’m finding that even on my MacBook Air, though, I don’t mind the sidebar.
All in all, Toodledo is still for the geekier user who wants to tinker and doesn’t mind spending some time getting a system down, that he or she will then use for years. Other apps, like Producteev, still feel more streamlined, but with not quite the power to slice and dice everything.
What do you think of the new use interface?
