The user can add everything, including professional tasks and personal plans. Users can add members and assign tasks to them or team leader responsibilities. Time can be tracked and all discussions can be handled through the application. Comments appear in a thread format so users can see what everyone said and which milestones it was related to.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Tracky is based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. The application as backed by $1 million in Venture funding. The features list looks very promising and the application manages to avoid restricting users to professional or personal tasks only which makes it appealing to a wider audience than some similar applications. Tracky received some notable publicity, including coverage on Tech Crunch and stage time at LaunchUp Las Vegas.

What are the differences to other apps?

Tracky manages to centralize all aspects of task management and organization. There are a number of online task managers available, but Tracky manages to present a new approach that works rather well. Users are not corralled into one type of task. Instead they can record milestones for an important work-related project along with their exciting plans for a group trip or family vacation. The user can invite others, assign milestones and keep in touch with all involved. The application really shines in the way it provides almost everything the user needs without restrictions. The only downside is that the application does not offer an Android version at this time.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Tracky works well and manages to look good at the same time. The clean, smooth interface lets the user glide through each step of the task organization process. Clean boxes contain each milestone and the user can view related tasks and comments below, much like a threaded conversation. The interface is extremely simple but still creates a modern looking, detailed setting that lets the user work without interruptions.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can try Tracky by completing the single-field form on the homepage. The form appears just above the stylized video clip, near the center of the page. After entering a valid email address, the user can click the green “Sign Up” button to continue. The form on the next page asks for a first and last name and password. Five orange buttons are available above the form for users who prefer to sign up with a Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook or Yahoo account. The user is automatically logged in after submitting the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

Tracky only offers one subscription option at this time. All users are given access to a free plan which includes up to five projects, 100 MBs of storage space and controls for public and private settings. An unlimited plan is listed as coming soon and will cost $5 per person per month. The unlimited option will include unlimited projects, unlimited users and 1 GB of storage space. Corporate pricing is available for accounts that need access for 100 or more members. Anyone interested in a corporate quote can contact Tracky.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Tracky is a helpful tool for anyone who wants to centralize their personal and professional tasks. Teams and companies can work together on tasks and stay on top of due dates or share files.
