A collection of useful, mostly web based, applications to help you find the tool that can make your work easier. These applications got my attention and I found them interesting enough to share.

The first category contains project management related applications.

The second category contains billing software, invoicing applications free or paid for, useful for small business, startups, freelancers or established companies.

Stay tuned for additional categories in the future, such as analytics, productivity, organization, bug tracking, crm, etc.

    Nice list, glad to see zoho on there, I’ve been using them for a few years. A couple new ones I’ve been trying out are and I like Hiveage because I really enjoy the finishing touch they put on the invoices. It gives them a much more professional look, and a couple of my clients have commented on it. The other one I like because I do a lot of contracting work and it’s nice to have an app that kind of does most of the work for me. I like using that app in combination with others, since that one does the quoting and content management. Check them out if you’re still looking for more!
