If you’ve been a part of a team which works out of multiple locations, or even geographies, chances are you are familiar with the web based task/project management tool – Asana. Asana is essentially a collaboration tool that makes communication on tasks and projects within a team seamless. Insofar, it was only available in its web-based flavor which could be accessed through a browser, but as of this morning, Asana Mobile for Android has been launched on the Google Play Store. It brings all the features of this awesome productivity tool to your Android smartphone or tablet in a small 339kb package, and is completely free for upto 30 team members. Which is awesome, to say the least.
Some of the standout features of the official Asana Mobile app for Android include:
- Create, prioritize, and assign tasks on-the-move
- Stay up-to-date with mobile Inbox
- Search feature to easily find specific tasks, projects, people, and tags
- Add due dates, recurring tasks, followers and tags
- Look up your own assignments
- Navigate to any project to check status
- Free: Collaborate with up to 30 team members
As you can see from the feature list above, you can do pretty much everything through the mobile client that you could do with Asana on your desktop browser, and you can do it easily and quickly from the convenience of your handheld device without having to fire up the mobile browser.
The interface is pretty clean and easy to navigate, and though not quite the Holo theme that we are used to seeing, is quite tastefully and elegantly done, as far as the aesthetics go. Screen transition, when you move from one project to the other, or while viewing your task list is quite smooth and lag free. On the whole, it’s a pretty good app for starters, and knowing the Asana team, we are likely to see more features and enhancements getting added via updates in future. Here are a couple of screenshots of the Asana Mobile client for Android:
