2016 - Project management app Asana raised $50M to defeate Todoist


Asana, the app that lets teams track projects at a $600M valuation led by YC’s Sam Altman. Asana today has 13,000 paying businesses as customers and over 140,000 businesses using the product overall adding some 10,000 every month. The company has both free and premium tiers, with the latter charged at $8.33 per member per month for groups above 15, and for more features. As more businesses move their work processes online, the productivity apps are having a moment right now. Just last week, BetterWorks — another platform that helps workers set and manage tasks and goals — announced a Series B of $20 million. In addition to BetterWorks and Asana itself, there are others like Basecamp, Wrike and Trello all offering ways to boost productivity and help organize so-called knowledge workers.

2015 - Todoist redesigned its web app to compete with Asana


Popular task management service Todoist has revamped its web app to make it a bit more modern with more whitespace and a flat design. The tick boxes are now round, and there are some subtle animations when you hover over icons. It looks more like the company’s iOS and Android apps, which is not a bad thing. Todoist also added natural language processing. Previously only available on mobile, this feature lets you add tasks with due dates in a single sentence. For example, you could write “Take out the trash every Sunday,” and Todoist will create a recurring task called “Take out the trash.” While natural language processing is particularly useful on mobile, bringing feature parity avoids confusion when you try to do something on the web and it’s only available on mobile. It is worth noting that this feature works in 14 different languages.
