What is it?

Basecamp: An online project management tool.


Who makes it?

37 Signals

Why is it the killerest?

37Signals took the malarkey out of hosted applications and did this one right. It's super easy to use, setup and understand. Pricing is set according to how many projects you have, not how many users (like competitors). It's the only project management tool I've kept using after a week (been using it for over a year now).

What could be improved?

It is somewhat sparse on features, (with an eye toward making each feature near flawless) it could use a few more features. So of this writing they are working on Basecamp 2.0.

How much does it cost?

From free to $99/mo
