Swipes Workspace brings the pieces of team's work in one place. It's a beautiful app to help teams Plan projects, Discuss ideas and Take action on the priorities. It's that simple. No more 10s of apps to dig in, hundreds of open browser tabs and crazy stream of notifications to react on. Just the Workspace.
UI/UX is gorgeous, cross-platform support is greatCons:
The language philosophy creates a barrier
I was part of the beta testing for what seems like well over a year. Up until it changed so drastically to this current iteration, I was 100% on board. The UI/UX is best in class, but I was totally lost on the project management language being used. It really feels like it's trying too hard to be "different" and thereby sacrificing the ability for people used to working with project management tools/apps to quickly onboard this new way of looking at things.
If it were just as simple as creating projects with Tasks and sub-tasks, it would have been a no-brainer. For example:
But instead what we're given are "Plan", "Goals", "Steps", "Milestones"... just feels both overly complex and linguistically unintuitive.
As I look at this new iteration, it seems that there is an attempt to help this language gap with the onboarding (visual guide).
It's still just too complicated, taking too many clicks to dig down into the tasks that need to be done today.
I'm also surprised to see there's no way to add dates or deadlines to items. Am I missing something?
I hate to be negative--especially on a piece of software that looks better than any other piece of software I've ever seen (and I don't say that lightly).
At the end of the day, the language choices just didn't make sense to me and I had to abandon it because trying to train myself and my team (US-based) to adjust to this different linguistic choices was too complicated.Dustin W. Stout has used this product for one year.
Awesome design, simplicity, apps for every major platform, love the UI/UXCons:
