    Trello

    Organize anything, together

    Ayrton De Craene17Code @ Product Hunt Β· Written
    As soon as you've launched a product several bugs will start popping up (hopefully not too many πŸ˜„), I use Trello to keep track of these and prioritise what to work on first.

    I think it's perfect for 1-10 person teams.

    Everything designing - Sketch (Mac). It's paid but absolutely worth it for all that we can do with it.

    Slack

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Ayrton De Craene17Code @ Product Hunt Β· Written
    When doing a collaborative side-project one of the first things I usually set up is a slack group. There's in my opinion no better tool for async communication.

    While not as hip as GitHub, BitBucket offers free private repositories for teams up to 5. At GitHub you will pay at least $25 for a team plan and more if your organization is larger than 5 persons.

    If it's an app you are building but don't have an hosting provider yet, ngrok will help you let you test your app among your friends/beta users while running it out of your local box! The ability to track requests and the incredible simplicity of ngrok is enough of a reason to give it a try.

    Great collaboration tool, super slick interface for your team to get started quickly, offers unlimited integrations and users, inbuilt task tracking features. Flock is a free app and available across devices.

    For starters, Flock is absolutely free to use. It's a great tool for managing communication, projects, tasks and a lot more. Next off, there's video conferencing, screen sharing, code-snippets, file sharing, To-dos, Polls, and a few more that come pre-integrated on the platform. You can also integrate external apps with the platform. Best part, unlimited integrations allowed on the free plan too! So all the tools that you're using or about to use can be integrated within Flock for free. :) Btw, it's a cross-platform product. Works on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android and Chrome.

    Freedcamp

    Get started with project management, for free

    Ayush Mittal27bro @boombro, Founder RefR ✌ · Written
    Freedcamp for project/task management. Entirely free, unlimited projects for an unlimited time. Categorisation is super useful and the dashboard home gives you an important overview of each subproject within the main project plus the people working on a particular project. Every subproject can have a task list, milestones, discussions, timesheets, files, calendar, etc.

    If you're working with a team you'll need to have team links that speed up productivity. They're used all over the valley at big companies https://www.golinks.io *Disclaimer* I'm the founder of the product so there is some bias but anyone who has ever used go/ links at any company knows how much they increase productivity and are hard to live without. Really helps with communication among teams bootstrapping their way in the startup world.

    Dropbox Paper

    Collaboration tool built for teams

    Fire Up Your Shop πŸ”₯Helping people sell on Shopify Β· Written
    Since starting using it, I've been a lot more productive than by using Basecamp or local todos / notes apps. It's the feeling / UX, I guess. Love the fact you can easily link documents together, start a new linked document by writing +something. And, sharing and collaboration is built-in.
