Running your business on email, texts, and meetings? It’s time to switch to Basecamp 3 instead. Trusted by hundreds of thousands of businesses worldwide, Basecamp is the saner, organized way to manage projects and communicate within your company. Inside every Basecamp project you’ll find six core tools that will transform your business for the better: 1. To-dos for tracking work. 2. A Message Board for posting announcements and updates. 3. A Campfire chat room for quick casual chats with the team. 4. A Schedule for posting deadlines and milestones, 5. Docs & Files for organizing all the assets and notes everyone needs to do their work. 6. Automatic Check-ins to get insights from the team on a regular basis. Instead of using MESSY EMAIL CHAINS... ...you’ll use message boards to keep the conversation organized, centralized, and on the record. Instead of CONSTANTLY REMINDING PEOPLE WHAT TO DO... ...Basecamp’s to-do’s keep everything on track. If anything’s late or requires follow up, Basecamp lets you know and holds everyone accountable. Instead of MEETINGS THAT WASTE TIME AND MONEY... ...Basecamp’s Automatic checkins prompt people to write up what they’ve worked on every day, every week, once a month — it’s up to you. Instead of WONDERING WHAT'S GOING ON... ...you’ll use Basecamp’s reports to get the big picture on what’s going on. Across projects, you can see what’s overdue, who’s working on what, what worked was completed on a given day, and much more. “Simply put, we get more work done, quicker, and better. Productivity is up. Errors are down. Clients are happier.” -Patrick Sheffield, Moore Communications Group “I no longer have to wonder whether I've asked for something to be done or whether it has in fact been done. Every member of my team is more accountable than we were before Basecamp.” -John Drover, Roebothan McKay Marshall “For the first time in a long time our team is truly collaborating, and everyone is moving in the same direction, with the same goals. It's truly remarkable how quickly things have changed in just a week.” -Ryan Sullivan, WP Site Care Note: This app works with Basecamp 3 (the newest major version released October 2015). Basecamp 2 (released March 2012) and Basecamp Classic (released February 2004) accounts require the Basecamp 2 app. Tap “View More by This Developer” to get it.
Pretty decent for a non-native app
3D/Haptic Touch options, links in emails that open the app, not a terrible and RAM hungry Mac app. No crashes so far. The only complaints I have are if the Mac app is open, then you don’t get a reminder email or notification for checking in. And the command+J search option doesn’t provide the six options listed in each project on the default list before you type anything. Would make things a bit faster. Although you can search for them, of course. The team has taken advantage of just about every menu.
Wonderful Small Business management tool
I use this for a student organization at my college, but I can tell that it would be an amazing tool for a small-midsize business looking to keep on top of everything. It helps organize, plan, and stay in the loop, AND their customer service is fantastic. Couple that with new additions that only improve the experience and never seem to complicate things, and I'm so glad I found Basecamp. Everyone in my organization loves it. I can't say whether it works for larger businesses, but for smaller groups it's perfect.
Suggestion to developers
Love this app! Provides a great mobile experience that replicates the desktop experience. One suggestion for the developers: please change the write message function so that the user can see the message they are replying to. I’ve found myself often having to close the message I’m writing just to see what the previous message was that I’m writing my reply to. Other than that this app and software is amazing!
