From making checklists to managing projects, collaborating with project teams, scheduling meetings, sharing files and more, nTask lets you do everything using just one tool. nTask is a state of the art project management app.

 

We won’t exactly call it a “hybrid” program, but it does seem to blend several components nicely. nTask offers collaboration tools via in-app messages & Slack integration followed by time tracking, multi-task management, and recurring activities.

 

For a quick overview of basic features, users can sign up for a Free Basic Plan.

2) Monday.com

 

monday projects

 

For teams with varied groups of individuals within a team using this project management app to coordinate everything from detailed printing requests, web and online projects to translation flow. Monday.com makes all of this easy to execute and collaborate on.

 

It is extremely easy to create a “Board”, add participants and follow-up on any progress on multiple tasks with ease.

You can easily attach different file formats and tag users to have a look at them to ensure that they are updated on the latest work within the team.

 

Email notifications ensure that all team members are notified of all the important tasks at hand, making it a wonderful project management app.

 

One of the major cons of this app is that it does not offer a repeating task or scheduled task option.

 

Price: Basic starts at $49/month, Standard plan starts at $59/month, Pro plan starts at $99/month


3) Hubstaff

 

hubstaff project

 

Hubstaff starts at $7 per user per month and focuses almost exclusively on time tracking features.

 

This project management app splits the focus by adding employee monitoring capability, such as keystroke monitoring. The interface for most users is user-friendly. The percentage of movement and work is available, so you kind of have an idea of whether a specific worker is idle or not.

 

Hubstaff can capture 3 random screenshots every ten minutes which keeps the employees on their toes. Overall, we believe Hubstaff is a time tracking, payment management, and employee monitoring app, it does a great job.

 

We found Hubstaff to be the easiest to use and responsive app. One major con is that working with Hubstaff can get on your nerves because of the activity system in place.

 

Price: Basic starts at $5/user/month


 

4) Asana

 

Asana

 

For lots of reasons, project management app enthusiasts love Asana. Asana is a top project management app that supports team manage all kinds of tasks. Flexibility and the capacity of these tools make the initial set up time worth it.

 

Asana specializes in workflow management, but it also controls and facilitates task management. Having said that no one should consider Asana as a full-on project management app.

 

So, what is Asana? It differs mainly from a traditional project management app namely due to its lack of structure. In the case of Asana, there are as many custom ways of using the app as there are predefined ways.

 

Before introducing Asana to your entire organization, a group of administrators needs to make a final decision on how Asana will be utilized and implemented within the organization.

 

Asana is available on the web and via the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.

 

Price: Basic (free), Premium ($13.49 per person per month), Business ($30.49 per person per month) & Enterprise.

7. BaseCamp

 

Basecamp

 

Basecamp is probably the most well-known project management app available in the market.

 

It allows you to manage projects that act as a central point for all things and contain features such as notes, to-do lists, files attachment, and many more. It is quite a user-friendly application to manage your projects and offers a 30-days free trial period with no credit-card commitment required.

8. MeisterTask

 

Meister Task

 

MeisterTask recently hit our radar as a handy project management app for mobile users. It offers a seamless user experience for project managers on the iOS platform.

 

Starting with the project management aspect, users can create projects; add teams to it, and allocate tasks to initiate the workflow. Followed by that, you can create multiple project boards to simultaneously overlook different project timelines.

 

To further add to productivity, MeisterTask allows users to work in offline mode. The next time they get an internet connection, all their work is synced to its latest state. Yes, these features are available for use on the iOS platform. And there’s plenty more where that came from.

 

Price: Basic Free plan, Pro plan at $4.19 per user, Business plan at $10.39 per user. 

 


 

9. Casual PM

 

Casual PM

 

Also known as ‘Casual’, this application is a blend of simple, but effective, project management tools. And yes, besides a robust desktop edition, there is an iOS version too for users on the go.

 

Aside from project management, Casual is also reportedly used by a large user community in the event planning industry. For instance, Starfinder Co. needed a simple tool with an organic learning curve. They surveyed the market and chose Casual.PM because it has the robustness of features that make teamwork and collaboration a gentle breeze.

 

As far as the actual project management aspect is a concern, you can plan tasks, create them, and deploy work by creating flowcharts. It’s a very unusual approach to creating tasks, but it does wonders for many users who aren’t tech-savvy.

 

The iOS dedicated app comes with a dashboard view of visual tasks and ongoing projects. You can also access other essential features to keep the workflow functionality going on.

 

The only setback to Casual.PM is a bit of complexity that kicks in when setting up big projects. However, if your projects are not too lean on details, this app is perfect.

 

Price: Free
