I know this is about Basecamp, but we recently switched from Basecamp to Monday.com and the whole team things it's much better. I wrote at length about Basecamp here recently. They just haven't kept up with the times. The whole product needs a massive update. It feels outdated, underfunded, and stale compared to the UI we expect from modern tools: https://medium.com/@maxhodges/hey-jason-d8ee5146811b
We switched from Basecamp to Monday.com, it's a really great product. Basecamp just hasn't kept up with the times. I wrote at length about it here: https://medium.com/@maxhodges/hey-jason-d8ee5146811b
We're tried Asana, Wrike, Basecamp, Airtable etc. Presently quite happy with Monday.com but it's not just a matter of what software tool you use, but how your company communications. You have to get people communicating in the right place to make it work. Great article on how tools like Slack can fuck things up https://basecamp.com/guides/group-chat-problems
I answered this question at length here: https://medium.com/@maxhodges/hey-jason-d8ee5146811b
Instead of scattering our work across multiple tools, Basecamp centralizes all project communication, task management, and documentation in one place.
Asana - very list based. But project management is about more than lists. Asana lacks shared files, places for unstructured discussion, and places for discussion that aren't exclusively connected to a TODO item.
Jira - never used it.
Notion - this is more of a Googles Docs replacement than a Project management tool
Trello - like Asana, Trello is certainly a useful tool for keeping track of things you're working on, once you list up your tasks, but managing the activities of a team project is about more than TODO lists
Github/Gitlab - how decides what to work on? Are the issues shaped up, or just a bunch of raw ideas? How is priority assigned? How designs solutions? Having a backlog is just one small part of a project management process.
Basecamp - give you list tools to keep track of ideas, and tasks. it includes Campfire, a Slack-like tool for impromptu discussion that stays connected to a specific project. Basecamp gives you a file section for sharing docs and assets, and a message board for making announcements, and getting team feedback on pitches.
Basecamp puts all our project communication, task management, and documentation in one place where designers and programmers work seamlessly together.
Shapeup is a great methodology for product teams about how to manage. It's created by the Basecamp team and full of eye-opening insights. The free book gives teams language and specific techniques to address the risks and unknowns at each stage of the product development process. https://basecamp.com/shapeup
It really depends on the MVP. We use the same stack for MVP as for post-MVP. We've used Meteor in the past, but now we build all new apps with Node.JS, Vue.JS, Vuetify, GraphQL, PostGres. We use Prisma as a GraphQL layer on the database. For landing pages we use static-site generators: VuePress for i18n, otherwise Gridsome, with Bulma or Tailwind. We deploy to Netlify.
We also use Slite and Basecamp, but in terms of collaboration features, Google Docs works the best. Doesn't support markdown, but you can use keyboard shortcuts for headings, bold, ordered and unordered lists, etc.
Amazon has decent support for customers, but for selling partners (Advantage, Marketplace sellers) it can be absolute hell.
Google Fi is a total disaster if you are outside of the United States. Took me 5 days of countless hours pure agony to buy a phone from them. My order kept getting cancelled.
I've also had really bad experiences with Shipbob.com, Quickbooks, Bank of America, MyUS.com, Shipito, Microsoft . . . so many!
after having used Basecamp, Asana, Trello, Google Keep, MeisterTask, Wrike, among others: I'm back to Basecamp.
Asana is technically more feature rich as a pure task list. But we feel Basecamp ticks off more boxes for us as a project management tool.
For quick, personal tasks, Google Keep is quite nice since it's syncs between mobile and desktop.
I've tried multiple iOS mail apps (Spark, Gmail, Apple Mail) but prefer Outlook (I know, the irony of running a Microsoft app on an Apple device, but it's quite well done.)
We use GSuite for business email. SendGrid for Transaction email, and MailChimp for marketing email.
