Collaboration Software is nothing new. As early as the 1990s big companies were developing cool programs that enabled people to work remotely, together. They were reserved for the larger corporations.

What there was on offer didn’t amount to much. So they released their own app to allow motley crews of developers to code happily together.

Some of the best apps are ones developed when a real problem needs a real solution, the solution is developed and the developers of the solution later on realize their solution would be very helpful for other people with the same problem. You might think most apps are created this way, but that’s not the case.

Stacks, a group task management app, was first internally developed to solve a problem. Once its creators had used it for awhile, they realized it was something that could be greatly beneficial to others and turned it into a public web app.
