    I still find it bit unorganised and hard to digest.

    I see it awkward that BC3 is totally separate from BC2. You can only have a new clear account with no current projects in it. The migration will be introduced in mid-2016.

    Been trying it out since yesterday. My biggest annoyance by far is that there is no more passwords. So instead of using your password manager to log in with one tap/click, you now have to type in your email every single time (no, it doesn't remember you), then wait for a link to arrive in your mail app, switch to it, click/tap the link and then you are logged in. What if you're using Basecamp with your work e-mail that you don't have on your phone, but wanted to log in on the go to check something?

    Being friendly to average people has always been their greatest advantage, but they have gone too far with this and I really hope they introduce passwords as an option. Also some more flexible pricing for freelancers and smaller teams wouldn't hurt.

    TIL people still use Basecamp, I guess.

      What do you use out of interest? We're using basecamp at work. Not a fan personally.

        Not Alec, but we used Basecamp for over 6 years. We use a combo of GitHub and Slack nowadays.

          We use Basecamp for communication with clients. They seem to like it and quickly learn how to use it. And for the one's that only want to use email can still do that.

          I still think Basecamp Classic was the best version.

      What alternative is there to it, really?

    Suspect that Basecamp's "human" UI style means it will never really take off in the design community.

    That's a lot of centered text all over their copy-heavy site. May need to re-evaluate: https://basecamp.com/3/new

      I think that their design has slipped with this revision, compared with the previous one.
