To-Do

Project management can be the hardest part of executing on your goals. Sometimes it’s easy to dream up the next big idea, but without the discipline to get things done, you are going to be left sitting around telling everyone that you meet about how you could have created the internet. For many, project management is at once personal (pick up flowers, take out the trash, etc.) and professional (file that invoice, draft new ideas).

Asana, the next big project from one of the team members at Facebook, is a free solution to managing your tasks as a team. Is it worth using, or is it a dud? Read on to find out.

Breaking News: There’s another new project management app! Stop the press!

Perhaps not, but it does seem like there’s another new project management web app coming out every day. We’re not complaining: many of the newer ones are really good, bringing fresh new design and a new spin on the feature set to help our wired world stay productive. And it’s not like traditional project management apps like Microsoft Project are getting any less popular. Still, when you’re looking for new web apps, it’s incredible how many project management web apps there are.

They come in all shapes and sizes. Basecamp is likely the most well-known and possibly most widely used online project management app. We even use it here at AppStorm to share article ideas, collaborate on posts, and send bulk updates to the whole team. But it’s far from the only tool, and many of us have used everything from Flow to Producteev to Strike to Trello. I’ve even used shared Simplenote to-do lists to manage projects before.

That’s why we were wondering if you use a project management app. Do you find it indispensable, or do you wish you could live without it? Are you excited to try out new apps and see if they fit your project management needs? Do you just need a to-do list, or do you need to break everything down to steps? We’d love to hear your thoughts on project management in the comments below!

When faced with a complex project that requires multiple skill sets, it’s always a good idea to look for help. Teams that can split up their work and utilize each member’s skills efficiently work fast and deliver great results. But it’s not always easy to delegate tasks – there may be confusion as to the scope of roles and delivery dates, or it may even be hard to find out which team members are best suited to which task.

Todofeed aims to solve that problem with a simple app that helps you get everyone on the same page and get cracking on your next project fast. But does it have enough to offer? Let’s take on a project and find out.

In today’s mobile and tablet-centric world, it often feels like the best apps come out only for smartphones. Web apps and traditional PC apps often aren’t as fancy as their mobile counterparts. Plus, they’re often much more expensive than the dollar or two you might pay for a high quality mobile app.

This morning on Hacker News, I came across a new web app from the developers of a popular mobile to-do list app, Do It (Tomorrow). It turned out to be an impressive example that web apps don’t have to be saddled with bland interfaces. Best of all, it’s been designed to make it easier to manage your tasks, so it’s an elegant UI with a purpose. Keep reading to get a quick tour of Do It Tomorrow and see if this free web app is the to-do list you’ve been needing.

The trick to making a really good web application is to not over-complicate it so that the user doesn’t know what they’re doing. It’s all about simplicity. Creating an app that fulfils a user’s needs without leaving them confused or bombarded with features they’re probably not going to use is key. One app that fits right into this mold is Coolendar.

Coolendar is more than simply yet another calendar app. It doesn’t promise the capability of mapping out each second of your day but what it does do is a lot better than that – it allows you to manage your time and tasks without having to complicate anything. Read on to find out more about this rightly self-proclaimed “cool” app.

I’ve never really been happy with the task management apps I’ve tried. There were always features missing, a less than ideal design, over complicated, too simple and so on. I’ve been jumping from app to app for as long as I can remember and somehow I always end up with a desk littered in bright yellow sticky notes, covered in lists of tasks, notes and all sorts of info.

I recently spent yet more time using some of the most popular task management apps in an effort to find “the one.” While there are many out there I like, only two really fit my tastes and needs — Producteev and Flow. Between those two, I decided on Flow (after using both) and I couldn’t be happier with Flow.

I’ll take a look at Flow, by MetaLab, and why I think I’ve found “the one” task management app for me.
