Quest for the perfect project management app

It all began 2 years ago. I had been in business for about 2 years, and was getting frustrated trying to keep track of incoming requests by email. I wanted something to help me keep track of tasks, project status, recurring tasks, future tasks, and even standard sets of tasks (such as those associated with a new client or new website project.)

A quick Google search will reveal that there are many great project management apps out there. But I have a pretty solid list of requirements, and most are missing 1 or 2 critical things. So, the great project management search had begun.

My wish list includes:

  • Easy to use
  • Time-tracking per task, with start/stop/pause
  • Attractive design
  • Multi-users
  • Allow clients to email new task requests

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to share with you my experiences with many different apps as I try them out and look for the one that has it all.  If I review one that you have experience with, I’d love to hear your thoughts as well. And, if you’ve got one that you want me to take a look at, be sure to let me know.
