Asana

Asana packs in a ton of features including project management, CRM, bug tracking, applicant tracking, and task management. The app also has a sweet HTML5 mobile site for on the go project management.

Nicole J. told us recently been diggin Asana for tasks across groups. It’s great to walk out of a meeting with all the to-dos assigned and waiting in your inbox.

Basecamp

Created by the legendary 37signals, Basecamp covers everything you need in a project management tool, from time tracking to documentation and file sharing.

Toggl

Toggle is a time tracking for groups. The app gives you instant feedback on how efficient your team is working, plus provides a helpful tool for comparing estimated time for tasks versus actual.

If you don’t know what Pinterest is by now, you better hop on the bandwagon! Along with being a place to look at things you can’t have, pinterest can also be a great way to collect ideas for later.

Sky D. says Saving cool pictures I found online to my computer used to take up space. Now Pinterest does it with a click of a button!

Evernote

The perfect app for online hoarders. Evernote can save almost any type of document and even make its possible to upload hand written notes and make them searchable. Evernote also has lots of baby apps, including Skitch, Evernote Hello, Evernote Food, Evernote Clearly and Evernote Peek.

Instapaper

Workflowy

Balsamiq

Rapid wireframing tool. Balsamiq wireframes look like a drawing so team members and clients aren’t freaked out about hierarchy and color and can concentrate on content and UI.

OneNote

Make list on your iPhone.

Kelli O. in Finland uses OneNote for all my great ideas I hope to do (some day!).

Cardmunch

A handy iPhone app by LinkedIn. Snap a picture of a business card and voila! you have all the card information in digital format. You can save to your iPhone, email, or click to connect with them on LinkedIn.

Sprout Social

Sprout Social surfaces relevant messages from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and blogs to make sure you participate in the right conversations. The app helps you monitor communications over several sites, shows you who has and who has not responded, and also provides powerful analytics on who is engaging with your site.

  1. Would be interesting to hear why you didn’t like Checkvist as a task manager and online outliner :)

  2. Thanks! I’ve been searching for great time/team management apps so I’ll definitely be checking some of these out starting with Asana. 

    • Hey Kristi, so glad this was helpful! Let us know what you think of the different apps. We’d love to know.

      • So far…Instapaper is exactly what I have been searching for over the past few months and I love it! I used it to remind me to check the other apps later – Perfect! Asana is amazing too! Also – I’m a huge fan of skillcrush!
