The Best 8 Project Management Apps

The Best 8 Project Management Apps

Project management doesn’t need to be a complicated thing, not if you have apps that make things a whole lot simpler. When you have project management apps, you can take care of your team, tasks and deadlines, without even being in the office. You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to get most of the apps you might need. Here are our top picks.

1. Casual

Casual.pm

    This is a unique app that offers a different way of doing things. On Casual you plan your tasks just by drawing them as a flowchart. The neat thing is that Casual helps you visualize and track dependencies between tasks. This app is incredibly intuitive and works great for personal projects, as well as for organizing projects for small teams. You can try it for free, and if you don’t like it, there is no obligation to pay for anything.

    2. OmniPlan

      3. Podio
