In Tron style, if you ever get a chance to explore the mythical Appland, you’ll bump into either invoicing or project management apps every step of the way. There’s just so many of them!

For years I’ve followed the traditional method of creating to-do lists; adding an item, setting a due date/time and striking it off once the task is done. Rinse & repeat. Sure, the sheer satisfaction of striking off even the smallest item on the list drove me to stop procrastinating and get things done. The one thing I’ve often struggled with though, is in making sense of my entire task list as a whole. No matter how much I try to categorize it with folders and tags, they feel like detached units that I need to spend a lot of energy making collective sense of.

When you’re running a business by yourself or in a small team, you’re often prone to the obtrusive clutter in your email inbox – causing you to spend more time sorting everything out and leaving you with less time to do your job.

Offering support for almost every aspect of contact management, it can be a really great addition to any business. Read on to see what I’m talking about.

When you’re working together with a team on a project, very quickly you’ll have bits and pieces of the project in a thousand different places. A task list in one app, documents saved on different computers and Google Docs accounts, various emails and IMs about the project elsewhere, and time tracking in yet another app. All of your digital tools are simply dragging the project down.
