Top 10 Apps for Project Managers in 2022

10 apps that will help you become productive with your projects

One of the biggest problems in project management is being able, at the same time, to handle team collaboration and deadlines, assign and follow tasks, and share notes and files in a way that everyone in the team can find them when it’s needed.

‘But worry you must not.’

Master Yoda, the wise character from the Star Wars universe

Thankfully, many have faced these issues before, and created demand for the greatest project management tools to be developed.

We bring you here a list of our 10 favorites so far in 2022. We’ll cover apps in:

  • Task Management

  • Search Engine

  • Shared Notes

  • Cloud Storage

Come with us to the golden path for better performance and improved productivity!

Wrapping up

Since you get to try for free many of the features listed here, it is worth taking some time to get to know better the tools and their resources. This will allow you and your team to make a more informed decision on the tools being used forwards — so that you can be more productive and get the most done.

And never underestimate the power of a strong search tool: frequently you already have what you need, but just can’t find it. Count on Curiosity for that!
