PlanCentral is an excellent task management app

2017-09-20

This is my new go-to task management app.

Pros

There is a generous amount of storage in the files section and the file sharing in-app is super convenient and time saving!

Cons

The thing that I like least about this software is that I wish the app had more integrations but I'm sure that will come with updates.

Would help prioritize company tasks.

Pros

The app might have prioritized some tasks. Also, I liked the messaging portion of the app.

Cons

There probably can be more features given the fact that there are some apps that are free that organizes tasks.
