They say we are addicted to the things we hate. Ask any professional what they feel is the biggest speed bump in their workflow and most will tell you the same thing: Email. Despite this aging and tedious process, we still communicate on projects using email. Asana removes this problem by removing the email from your project workflow and allows for you to quickly collaborate with your team in a smooth and intuitive way.
Asana is co-founded by Dustin Moskovitz who was a co-founder of Facebook. Moskovitz took his knowledge of how social interaction and media worked and applied it to a work environment. The result is a much easier way to share information, keep it all in one place, and ditch the email forever.
With the release of Asana version 3.0 today on the Android platform, things just got even better. This new release brings a redesign that makes Asana faster and removes prior issues vastly improving its performance. It also gets an upgrade to bring it more in line with Google’s Material Design making this app more pleasing to the eye. Asana has also included swipe support. When you finish a task, simply swipe right to mark it finished. Also, included is the ability to drag and drop task to move them up or down according to your needs. Add to this list the ability to add a task on any screen and you have the makings of an app that will certainly help with any team’s workflow.
All of these great new features are due to Asana making its new app entirely native on the Android platform. This was lacking in the past and hindered the usability and utility of the app. Now mobile users will be able to exchange, comment, engage, and become more productive with their team when they are away from their desk. Add in notifications and you will be able to stay on top of your projects and task and communicating in a more effective way with your team. Today’s project workflow demands a top of the line app, and Asana is more than up to the task. Let us know what you think of Asana’s new native app (source link below) in the comment section.
