Asana: a full-featured task manager for iOS devices

Yardena Arar | Aug. 5, 2014
Asana's new iOS app capably serves iPhone and iPad users of the web-based task management services, with most of the features of the desktop browser version.

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.
