CatchApp is one of the best tools when it comes to managing and organizing work in teams, and if you own a Windows 8, 8.1 or Windows RT device, you will be happy to hear that the official app has been launched some days ago.
With the official name “CatchApp: Team Tracking“, this new really useful productivity app gets released in the Windows Store as a free download (link at the end of the article). As the name suggests, it will help you track what your team is doing. If you’re interested in such apps, then you might want to have a look at Trello for Windows 8, as well. The official CatchApp for Windows 8 will be free only during one month, and you will be getting all the same features as the premium account. After that period expires, you will have to switch to a paid account.
After one month of use, you will be require to pay $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. I’ve used CatchApp on my Windows 8 devices for a few good minutes and what I like the most is the fact that it works with so many cloud storage services and even rival services. This is also one of the features that users appreciated the most in this app.
The pulse of work: The easiest way to catch up with everything your team is working on. See what’s going on, gain insights and take action. CatchApp connects to the apps your team is working in. It extracts the activities of each team member and shows them in chronological order. It’s your newsfeed for work. Lists let you split up this newsfeed into smaller sections to get super-organized. CatchApp is also available on iPhone, iPad and the desktop web browser of your choice.
By using CatchApp on Windows 8, you can do the following things – let you track the team’s activity across different apps, lets you sort activities in chronological order, shows recent activities. So, CatchApp gathers in a central place all the work that your team is putting up on other apps and services and gives you the latest updates on what they have done. It comes with support for Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Evernote, Box, OneDrive, Trello, Basecamp, Podio, Pivotal Tracker, Jira, Confluence, GitHub, Bitbucket, Desk, Zendesk, Highrise, Yammer, Salesforce Chatter, Mendeley, Lighthouse, Facebook, Twitter, and RSS feeds, as well.
With the free acount, there is also a limit of 100 feed updates per month. But you can increase it y referring CatchApp to friends and colleagues by up to 1,000 free updates per month. So, if you have been using CatchApp before on other devices and now you have a new Windows 8 system, then you need to go ahead and download it.
