Project Management

As the old saying goes, a good start is half the work done. Which is precisely why developers have saturated the web with full of project management apps. Sadly, most of them are merely copycats of the industry giants and leaving the users frustrated. Moreover, these applications are built with larger teams in mind and a single user is often left stranded.

Solo is an artistic project management app that is specially crafted with freelancers in mind. It uses a drastically different approach and the interface is unique. We’ve covered its first version already, but now its second version is now in beta. Here’s what’s new.


Document collaboration is an area that many are trying to innovate in. For general usage, Google has been at the forefront of increasing collaboration with Google Drive but the options become significantly limited when you want to specialise in a specific genre.

Authorea is all about writing educational and research papers in your browser in a convinent and intuitive manner while easing the process of collaborating with others. (more…)

It’d be hard to be a fan of web apps and not have heard of Wunderlist. The nearly ubiquitous to-do list app has gone from a fresh contender at its launch in late 2010 to one of the most well-known to-do list apps on the planet. It’s free, fun to use with customizable backgrounds, and has web, desktop, and mobile apps that all work exactly the same. In fact, we used to use it internally at AppStorm before switching to the new Basecamp. It works great, and looks nice: a rather killer combo.

And now, it’s better than ever. Wunderlist 2 already improved the service, but it’s lately gotten a ton of extra goodness, along with paid Pro accounts that add unlimited subtasks, task delegation, and of all things, extra backgrounds. The first two make it a serious contender for professional task management, while the latter keeps Wunderlist’s fun attitude front and center. (more…)

Between the desktop, web and mobile, there are so many different apps that can help you create and manage tasks. Many of them offer the ability to collaborate with a team as well. So, if a tool is what you are missing in your quest to stay productive, lack of choices is never going to be the problem.

But, every team has its own requirements. Some prefer planning to the boot with every single aspect of the tasks jotted down. Some might prefer to go with a big picture view, focusing mainly on understanding where things stand at any given time. From the looks of it, DropTask appears to be a web app that can help people who prefer to track tasks at a glance. Let’s take a closer look.


Project management is a seriously challenging job of its own. Keeping track of what needs to be done, by whom and by when, can be tricky, even when working with the smallest of teams. Little wonder, then, that there is now a very considerable selection of online project managers available, including the likes of Basecamp, Huddle and 5pm.

Subtask is the new kid on this particular block – so new, in fact, it’s still in invite beta – and it shares many features with its more established competitors. Rather than being list-based, however, Subtask provides a more innovative approach; new projects are displayed in a mindmap-like hierarchy, allowing for multiple levels of tasks and sub-tasks.

In theory, this layout should make things clearer – but does it? (more…)

There are many ways you can organize your tasks, be it on your own or with a group of people. From simple to-do apps like Wunderlist to full-featured ones like Flow and Producteev, there’s always something for any sort of task or project. If you haven’t found one that works for you, then is one that you should be sure to check out. is a web app for managing multiple tasks and projects using a simple and intuitive interface, from the Salesforce team. While it can be great for collaborating with a team, I found that it’s just as good when you’re working on your own.


Invoicing, time tracking, and project/task management: the three app categories that seem to dominate the world of web apps. It’s incredible how many apps are trying to target this same space, and after a while it feels a bit repetitive. There’s only a few apps that feel really innovative. Mostly, you end up wishing that the best features of all of them could be combined into one great app, while you keep using the one you started with just because you’ve already invested time and money in it.

There’s a newish invoicing and time tracking app, though, that’s unique and innovative enough that you owe it to yourself to try it: Paydirt. It’s been on our radar since mid-2012, and has gotten better with time, enough that it’s the time-tracking app you should try if you don’t have one already. Keep reading to see why.


Customer support can be an incredibly tricky thing to get right. You need to be quick enough to respond to your customers – or potential customers – while being efficient enough that providing support doesn’t bankrupt your business. Just keeping up with all the emails, and keeping everyone’s issues straight, is enough to make it difficult.

However, users don’t just send you feedback by email anymore. Your feedback is bound to be coming in from email, Twitter, Facebook, and that is the confusing part. Messages are coming in from a variety of sources and you need to check each one individually — an arduous task for the majority of us.

Reamaze is an app which aims to re-invent tech support and help you on your way. This is a new customer support platform which collects everything which has been sent to your site – no matter how it’s been sent. It processes this data and shows it to you in one easy-to-understand format. Let’s take a look.


Running a small business is no small feat, and it helps to have the right tools handy to help keep things running smoothly, whether it’s internal communication, managing projects, or staying on top of finances. There are scores of apps out there to tackle these challenges, but wouldn’t it be nice to have everything in one place, so you don’t have to scurry from one tab to another to get things done?

Cashboard might be the answer you’ve been looking for — it packs a ton of functionality into a single app so you can do all of the above with ease, while allowing your employees to access and share data and giving you an overview of how your company is doing. Let’s take a look at what it has to offer and whether it’s the right fit for your outfit.


There are so many project management apps available online. Actually, it’s one vertical where web apps rule, and native apps have been relegated to an afterthought. The competition is intense and customers have so many choices in front them. Yet, trust me when I say this, there is still room in the market for new players who focus on clean layouts and simpler workflows.

In my experience, we are stuck between horrible bloat and ridiculously featureless project management and team collaboration apps. So, I’m always in search of the one app that has the right set of features. With a catchy name, Siasto pitches that it’s the perfect way to collaborate with your teammates. Let’s go check it out, shall we?
