    Pros: 

    UI/UX is gorgeous, cross-platform support is great

    Cons: 

    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:

    - Project

    -- Task

    --- Sub-task

    --- Sub-task

    --- Sub-task

    -- Task

    -- Task

    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.

  • Pros: 

    Elegant interface, great mix of notes, files, plans, tasks!

    Cons: 

    The plans take up too much space on the view with the big circles. Make it a list with a different progress indicator.

    Been a beta user since August. Have used the original Swipes for a couple of years. The team did a great job in beta flushing out bugs and making the product very user friendly. We have about 15 on our team using. Slow for all to adapt. Several use it often - we are still working to make it a common platform.

  • Pros: 

    Clean lines, simple but also super full-featured, constant updates, graphics make accomplishing tasks rewarding, and so much more!

    Cons: 

    I know it's coming, but I can't wait to be able to drag n drop to reorder my Take Action items :)

    I beta tested Swipes Workspace. The app went through several iterations, each one better than the last. The customer support from Team Swipes is amazing and they are constantly updating their app.
