      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

    I started using this as a tool for work and now I use it for everything I can - I've migrated all my personal tasks over to Trello and am way more organized.

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

      If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.

    Zenkit for iOS

    Work with Zenkit on the go

    Zenkit is my go-to project management tool for everything - from a simple to-do list to complex project management with my team. I use it for everything, even personal stuff. Recently, they have published their iOS app which is massively helpful when I´m on the go!
    • Patrick Schüller
      Patrick SchüllerMarketing/SEO @Zenkit

      My team and I have been using Zenkit primarily for day-to-day, collaborative project management and delegation. Looking forward to also using it, when I´m on the go. So happy, that the app is finally out.

    • (Tested on iPad) Clean interface, the important features of Zenkit cards and boards are here. OK there are no Kanban, Calendar or Mindmap views in this version, but to quickly check a project, update or add cards, it is fast and easy.

    I've found Todoist helpful when incorporating non-technical folks into certain projects, not forcing them to suffer our project management stack, a quick easy way to bring them on board and assign peripheral tasks and responsibilities. Todoist provides pretty robust flexibility for a to do list so my team can organize tasks by project, incorporating deadlines, reminders, filters, invite team members and more. The mobile interface is nice and clean and we can pull it up all the time, impromptu and run through where things stand and quickly see what is outstanding and where we have progressed. The more we use it, the more flexibility we discover which is nice as we haven't sensed any hard limitations with the app yet.
    • haabe
      haabeDeveloper @ Snopp Designbyrå

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

    • The Todoist app is ruthlessly efficient in helping me capture my tasks no matter when or where I am. Bring collaborators into a project, or a task is a snap. When I'm creating a recurring task, and hopefully a positive habit, or when I am reflecting on my productivity, Todoist works.

      I recently gave Polymail another try and it's indispensable now. Fast mailbox switching and read receipts are the killer features for me.

      Love Polymail for the Mac, but the iOS app doesn't do it for me. When I'm on my phone, Inbox is my go-to.

    • Chad Whitaker
      Chad WhitakerProduct Designer at AngelList ✌️

      Polymail picked up where Mailbox left us hanging. Implementing all the best features like "Read Later" scheduling and swipe actions — all housed in a clean design.

      Lately, I've noticed that Polymail is focusing more on biz dev and sales productivity with Polymail Pro. Understandable, with Sparrow and Mailbox being sold off and shut down. It's clear that email clients need to become profitable to survive. Unfortunately, I'm often pressured into features that I would never use via prompts and popups.

      I have used Polymail for a couple of years now. I still notice a few small bugs around rendering emails, and the Read Later queue can break down if you have several threads saved. Still hoping these issues will be fixed soon. 🙏

      Overall the app still functions great and is my daily email client.

      I've been using Spark since the very beginning. I was an original waitlist-starting user of Mailbox, and was excited to find spark almost immediately after Mailbox went extinct. This is the best email experience on every platform, and has a variety of productivity features that make it my go-to.

    • Ever since Mailbox became a graveyard app, I have been looking for a worthy replacement – and Spark is as close as it gets! The UI is clean, combining dark and light colors which helps with using the app; the side menu being dark while the rest of the UI has a white background makes you focus on the important stuff (the mail list and the mail in focus)!
