We are currently discussing options on how to treat the new week/calendar functionality in TeuxDeux (www.teuxdeux.com) and would love your feedback.
Week icon: moves you 5 days ahead
Calendar Icon: Brings up a jQuery calendar and jumps to that date
Spelled out words for week and calendar options
Any TeuxDeux fans out there have any ideas?

Option 1 makes more sense as it visually ties into what the actual functionality looks and works like.
They're both nice solutions but I prefer Option 2. It seems less busy to me. Looking great!
I think option 1, but maybe it needs a small arrow next to week icon to explain that its moving forward a week, not a week picker, which is what I thought it was originally.
What Naz said.
I like the icon based system. For your audience i think you can be more visual - less text (description) based. It may also help emphasize your actual text list of things TuexDeux... : )
I'm not a user (yet!) but I think the text is clearer. I wouldn't know what one of those icons is for a week and one is for a day without explanation.
Hm. It seems odd to me to group these features together when their functionality is quite different.
Perhaps have an icon for month, a rule, and have text for jump 5 (and an arrow) functionality?
I agree with Naz's thoughts. Option 1 also looks cleaner.
It doesn't make me think. But needs to be lighter. Maybe #666?
If I hadn't seen both of these side-by-side, I likely wouldn't have known what the icons represented. Although I like the icons, the text works better.
Thanks everyone, really appreciate your thoughts!
Let's go with #1
The words, definitely. The icons themselves are not explicit on what they are/do.
I vote for the text.
+1 for what Naz said.
I like the icons, but wouldn't know what they were without seeing the words.
Option 1 makes the most sense to me.
I agree with Amit.
Majority of users won't know what those icons mean.
It's always better to not make them think about it.
#1 looks better but I think #2 will work better.

What about something like this? I don't think the words or the icons made it clear that I was moving forward.

Could you do the icon but have a little hoverbox come up with the words. Like Cameron Moll did on Authentic Jobs when you hover over the "Question mark"?
Actually dribbble does it it below the comment box where it says, "Some HTML is OK"
Is the next-week link necessary? What if it's just a jump-to-date icon?
