What is it?

TaskBin: It is a group task management tool.

It helps you allocate tasks to your team members and is built around the concept of sharing tasks as a group (or groups). All of your tasks are visible to others and can be shared.  Other members can add tasks to your plate or edit tasks already there.


Who makes it?


Why is it the killerest?

Very smooth interface, attractive, feature-rich, and for a group working on a project, it offers a simple way to share and keep track of tasks. Nifty constructs like softer deadlines (today, tomorrow, next week, sometime soon) introduce an interesting (and more real-world?) way to prioritize tasks.

What could be improved?

It has a highly annoying construct where it forces you to add first and last name for anyone.

None of the marketing pages outline what the "premium" account is, or what it costs.

The confirmation link they email you is beastly-long, but not a hyperlink (easy fix, guys!).

How much does it cost?

Free for everything I could find. There's mention of a "premium" account during signup, but I never saw anything else about it.
