    We're about to launch something new: Forecast

    It's a project management app that marries Trello-like, easy to understand interface with the structure of a more traditional project management workflow (i.e Basecamp) Designed mostly for ourselves and friends at various startups and agencies: something light and flexible that doesn't have unnecessary bells and whistles. So it's decidedly not suitable for large companies.

    Sign up for a free account if you guys want to test drive. We'll be rolling out private beta invites in coming weeks!

    That looks interesting... kind of like Trello board on steroid.

    Speaking of - our inspiration wasn't accidental :) We love Trello but turns out it's not that suitable for day to day project management workflow (lacks depth/dimension in that regard). Trello works best as a mood-board, todo list, task management app IMHO. (The goal of Forecast is to marry Trello-like, easy to use interface with the structure of a more traditional project management workflow (i.e Basecamp)

    Good call on integration w/ existing services....we'll have to look into it. Thanks!

    Agreed. Basecamp may be many things but "fun" isn't one of them.

    Longtime Basecamp user and a fan of Trello. I also tried ActiveCollab a good amount at my previous job.

    Here're my thoughts on each:

    Trello is the easiest to get started on but it didn't work for us in an agency environment with a lot of projects. It lacked certain depth and dimension necessary to be used as a project management app. It's better suited for "task management" We still used it for our daily stand-up meetings.

    Basecamp is Basecamp. Weren't sold on their new redesign so stayed with Classic for a long time. But it's age was definitely showing. We wanted to try new workflows and Basecamp was a little too unweildy / limited / old-school for that.

    If you want all-in-one solution that comes with an infinite number of settings, switches and nobs at the expense of a friendly UI - you can't go wrong w/ ActiveCollab. It has an dizzying array of features (rather poorly implemented) and you may not be happy w/ the way UI looks (and UX is definitely less than desirable) but it does allow you to host your own and allows you to customize the app by adding plug-ins/module etc. If that's something you care about, none of the other tools offer that.

    Something new: http://tryforecast.com

    Forecast marries Trello-like easy to use interface with the structure of a more traditional project management app workflow (ie. Basecamp). It has bunch of innovative touches that makes tackling multiple projects less of a chore. Designed mostly for ourselves and friends at various startup and agencies: something light and flexible that doesn't have unnecessary bells and whistles.

    I like Trello a lot but it lacks certain depth and dimension necessary to be used as a proper project management app. It's better suited for quick and dirty "task management".

    Couple of us are about to launch something new: http://tryforecast.com
