    This is my project management software: it is quite complete, in particulare version 4 coming out now (free licenses included): see http://twproject.blogspot.com/2009/01/teamwork-

  • http://www.eventmanagerblog.com tojulius

    Thanks Pietro!

  • Suruchi

    Good list but should have included DeskAway in the list of Project Management Software. It is very simple and easy to use and provides a lot of features with security (SSL enabled) & is much affordable & better than other pm tools.

    Add http://www.5pmweb.com to the projects management ones.

    Great list. I love Basecamp, it's very user friendly, just wish they had a free option though

  • http://www.eventmanagerblog.com tojulius

    I agree, hopefully they'll release a free basic version.

    You missed out on Nozbe:

    http://nozbe.com

    It’s a time and project management app based on the “Getting things done” principles.

    It’s got a native iPhone app now, too.

    Just wanted to make your list complete :-)

    Note to those promoting their service: I appreciate you guys filling up the list, but would prefer if you could use another tone, specially when you are promoting your own product.
    E.g. No=”You missed out” Yes=”This may complete the list” This is very appreciated when you are getting a do-follow link from a popular post, instead of being marked as spam.
    Thanks

    Another great online project management tool is SantexQ – http://www.santexq.com It focuses on task and time management but also has other tools like invoice generation and file uploads. Great post, it's hard to believe there are so many PM options out there!

    I'm surprised you didn't mention Trac. Many companies use it, both big and small, like Automattic (creators of WordPress).
