Ask DN: Best (small) Project Management App

over 2 years ago from , Graphic & Interface Designer

I'm coming to the point where my small freelancing activities have overcome my to-do app:"Clear" in terms of capacity/scope.

What do you use for managing your projects via iOS?

      Yep. Trello is the best option in the market now. Fair prices, great app integration, friendly user experience. I'd recommend Trello for small to medium-sized teams. Not sure if it would work as well for big (10+ people) teams.

    I have been using todoist for a while and like it. Cross platform, browser extensions, ios/win/mac apps. You can have projects, or just throw everything into an 'inbox'. There is a free version with some premium upgrades that I haven't bothered getting.

    We at Kreativgebiet are using Trello for project management. Partially using Scrum and Sprints to get things done fast. Every client and project has it's own board.

    Basic boards

    When a new board is created the first lists are "To-Do", "Doing", "On Hold", "Backlog". Then we need labels for "Development", "Design", "Management", "Copywriting" to keep track of all teams using one Board.

    Long-Term Clients

    For long-term clients we also normally have a board suffixed with "Invoicing" and "Management", because the management is to much for a single board and invoicing is too much to add this to the default board.

    External Teams

    Sometimes, when working with an external API Team (coming from the client) we also have a list "Knowledge" where we are discussing things that are returned by the API for example. There we have colored labels for "Needs review" and "Finished" to keep track of open discussions.


    We use Harvest for tracking times and invoicing. Since Trello has a nice integration of Harvest build in as "Power-Up" it's easy to track per-task for each card. You can also use the "Card Aging" Power-Up to track which tasks are older than others.

    Use different labels

    Another use case of the labels (if you are a one-man team) is to track urgency of the task. Red for very urgent, yellow for urgent and so on.
