The one thing missing in the mobile app was the calendar you get on the desktop browser version. But if you've synced your Asana calendar to a third-party calendar such as Google calendar or Outlook, you can probably arrange to see it on your iOS device calendar. For example, I had already set up my iOS devices to sync with my Google calendar, so to see the Asana calendar I'd synced with Gcal I just had to go into Google's calendar settings for iPhone (www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect) and toggle the Asana calendar to be on.
Note that you can't edit Asana calendar entries from within the iOS calendar--but again, changes made within Asana (either mobile or desktop) will show up practically instantly.
You can use Asana for all sorts of undertakings, from planning a sales campaign or family outing to tracking bugs, and the iOS app extends its usefulness to a whole universe of users who prefer to manage their business and professional lives on an iPhone or iPad. With a generous free version policy (up to 15 people in a workspace), Asana is worth a try to see if it can help streamline your collaboration and interaction with co-workers, friends, or even family members.
