Christmas Giveaway Day 1: Staction

Happy holidays and welcome to the beginning of the Advent giveaway here on Web.AppStorm. As David mentioned on our sister site yesterday, we’ve got thousands of dollars of prizes to give away over the next 24 days.

Many of these prizes have been donated by the amazing developers of the web community. And on the 24th, we’ve got a grand prize that includes a package of more than ten prizes.

And we start with Day 1 – Staction.

Update: congratulations to our winners — @ktluroberts, @2criatividade, and @TheRevived. Each posted a nice tweet listing why they needed Staction. Enjoy!

About Staction

Staction is a focused tool with a simple concept. It aims to remove distractions and help your team do what it does the best — complete tasks. And to do that, communication is necessary. Staction is there to give you one place to do both

Developed by the team at Paste Interactive, Staction is a great option for many freelancers and small teams. It offers a web interface, OS X Dashboard widget, as well as an Adobe AIR client. Whatever method you prefer, Staction meets your needs.

One screen for everything.

One screen for everything.

Here’s how the team at Paste describes their latest creation:

Thank goodness for modern web services. Apps like Twitter, and Tumblr have taught us all new ways to communicate briefly, and succinctly. It’s time that the business world started embracing the new way of talking. If you’re stuck in: account/client/project/type-of-data/some-specific-list – Pull your head out. There’s a lot of work and communication going on around you. Stay on top of it.

This app takes a different approach to industry mainstay’s like Basecamp. Rather than “hunkering down in the trenches”, Staction enables you to work “in the clouds”.

If that sounds good to you, read on.
