Basecamp app review



Basecamp by 3 signals is a project management app for your iOS device.

To use it, you’ll need to have or set up an account with Basecamp.

Once you sign in using your Basecamp username and password, you’re taken to the main screen with all of your projects. Please note that Basecamp Classic does not work with this project management app.

More Information

Tap on any of your projects to select and view, or click Progress to see an overview of them all.

The Progress screen is basically a dashboard of activity in your projects for the last few days, going backwards. You can see forwarded emails, moved tasks, comments, messages, reassigned task assignments, due dates, and more.

You can search for keywords using the top search bar, and results will show if it is a to-do item, which project it is in, when it was posted, or if it is in a message. The keyword for which you searched is also highlighted for easy browsing.

When you click on a project, you’ll see the Latest Project Updates. This is the default setting that you can change to Project Settings, Completed To-Dos, Latest Project Updates, Discussions, Upcoming Dates, People on this Project, Text Documents, Files, and To-Dos.

Basecamp was updated to Version 1.0.1 on February 15, 2013. The update improved performance and stability. The current version has a total of 42 ratings with an average of 2.5 out of five stars. Feedback comments aren’t very positive.

I’ve used Basecamp on my desktop computer for almost a year and am glad to have a mobile app so I can check on work projects while I’m out and about. I cruised through the app and didn’t run into any problems and see no issues I’ll have with the user interface. I’m not sure what users are complaining about when it comes to this team project management app being a clunky browser window.

For: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad with iOS 6.0 or later
