    Hey guys, I spent all of yesterday redesigning my iProcrastinate site from the ground up, and I was wondering if I could get a few suggestions/comments on it. I haven't had a chance to test it out in any browsers other than Safari and Firefox on the Mac, so if anyone would be willing to try a few others, I'd really appreciate it. The site is at http://www.craigotis.com so let me know what you think. (I'm looking mainly for feedback on general usability, noticeable errors, and color scheme.) Thanks! :D

    Looks great so far. The only thing I think could be improved (although that's probably intentional) is that the upper triangle looks a bit misplaced to me. I think it might look better if it pointed at the exact centre of "organized" - sets a bigger focus in my opinion.

    very nice. i'm on IE 6 here at work... the only issue i'm seeing is with the top and bottom edges. the curved edges don't meet up at all and they aren't all in the right position either.

    the live search image only shows the top third of the image for me. Is that what you intended? OSX 10.4.8 Safari 2.0.4

    Looks good on IE 7. And I love the name of the product.

    The only nit I saw was the v30. It looked like Version 30 vs. Version 3.0.

    Haha sweet, thanks a bunch. :) Anything new you want to see in the next version?

    Edit: Thanks to everybody else for the critiquing too, I'll work on the IE6 edge problem. Blasted IE.

    The only thing i could suggest is an alarm reminding you that an assignment is due tomorrow or any given time. I don't know anything about programing but could you make it so that the app doesn't have to be open for a reminder. Another thought down the road is for an email to be sent out to your email reminding you, or a text message -- just an idea
    Keep up the good work

    Very nice, very very nice. And I'm downloading as well to use. I'm not heading back to school for a few more weeks, but I think I could LOVE this at work where I have to keep track of 30+ accounts all the time and I'm ALWAYS missing deadlines, drives me nuts!!

    Two of the testimonials are the same. The design is slick though, it might need a little itty bit of weight loss (shrink icons and text just a little) but that's up to you. Something is up with the Live Search image too.

    I work at a web design sweat shop and do nothing but design and revise designs all day long, and seriously, yours is very clean, and very Mac. Good job.

    Looks good in OmniWeb. The app itself looks neat too.

    Can anybody comment on the IE 6 problem? If somebody could send me a picture or perhaps take a quick peek at the source and pinpoint the problem, I'd really appreciate it! :)

    I can't say anything about IE6, but I checked the site in IE7 and found some problems. I attached a screenshot, which should say everything for me.

    Other than that, I think the design is very good. My only suggestion would be to perhaps darken the light gray text a little bit. That and maybe add a text-based download link (or add an alt attribute to the current image) so search engines can pick up on the fact that you can download the app from your site.
