  1. Good list, but missing binfire.com which is the leading project management & collaboration application for the distributed teams.

  2. The list is good. But, I feel it has missed the most competitive one. HappyTODOS, easy and user friendly interface, unlimited users for $19/month, productive features like prioritizing task, drag and drop, automated notifications, real time reports to know who is working on what? How much is the cost of the project? When the project will be complete? Plus time tracking, instant file sharing, updates, reviews, collaboration communication, daily work scheduler, pay as you go service, 24 hours online support, all these make sense. I am sure next review will be much better. Take a look.

  3. The list is very long and I can add one more tool which I think deserves to be here as well and this is Comindware task manager. You can read about the tool on their official site:www.comindware.com

  4. I would recommend checking out Gtdagenda.com for an online GTD manager.

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, and a calendar. Syncs with Evernote, and also comes with mobile-web version, and Android and iPhone apps.

  5. I have a few questions and suggestions about the collaboration tools. We are now using one of the known collaboration systems, but we want to move to a tool teamwox.com. The problem is, how do we make the transition to a different system, because a lot of files and documents, tasks that are already built? What solutions can you offer us?

  6. Hi Aaron, There are certain project management software which allow direct import of projects and other data. However i don’t know about Teamwox though. It depends on which PM system you’re using currently.
