Propane: a beautiful desktop client for Campfire

Propane is a beautiful, Mac-only desktop client for Campfire by 37signals. Working on a remote team, one of the core tools in maintaing a cohesive work environment is group chat. Out of the myriad options I keep coming back to Campfire as my chatroom of choice. The archiving, file sharing and integration with Basecamp (our project management tool of choice) make it stand above the other...

Haystack helps web designers and clients find each other

Finding a web designer is a terrifying proposition for many people. How do you find someone qualified? It's not like there's a directory out there that lets you quickly browse and compare examples of work from various web designers to narrow down your set of choices quickly, and can help you get in touch with the one you choose. Well, actually, now there is. And if that sounds like a good idea,...

HuddleChat: It's like Campfire, but free

HuddleChat is a web-based mult-user chat application built with Google's App Engine. And it's almost...

Highrise introduces tags tab, multi-tag filtering

Highrise, the popular web-based contact and correspondence app from 37signals, has a new dedicated Tags tab in the dashboard. This will help users filter and sift through their contacts and notes much more quickly, especially since the company built in the slick ability to select multiple tags with which to filter. Clicking one tag in the cloud begins the process, while clicking another will...

Users of Backpack by 37Signals might enjoy having the ability to put a Backpack widget on their Mac's Dashboard.

37signals adds Backpack to their One Bar single sign-in page

Earlier this month, 37signals added a One Bar feature to allow users of their Basecamp project management and Highrise correspondence tracking services to sign into both sites at once. Fortunately, after issuing a major update to Backpack, their wildly popular web-based PIM app, they have added Backpack to the One Bar signin. This will save some time and simplify switching between these...

Backpack Preview 3: You can finally move items between pages!

Yea, that's right, we used an exclamation point (!) in a post headline - that's how excited we are that 37signals just released a new preview post and video demo of one of the most-requested Backpack features ever: moving items to different pages. Especially appealing to the GTD crowd, the ability to move items between pages will blow open the doors on Backpack's usefulness for everything from...

I haven't used basecamp, until now

Okay, confession time. Despite being an early adopter for most things, I hadn't caught the basecamp train and got on board. Why you ask? I had no good use for it, though it is an excellently crafted application. I love software, and thus I checked it out, but for some reason I didn't see how its use would fit into my busy life, until now. Becoming a self-employed web developer threw my daily...
