  1. If you’d like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this application inspired by David Allen’s GTD:

    http://www.Gtdagenda.com

    You can use it to manage and prioritize your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A mobile version and iCal are available too.

  2. Gantt charts of course are still important, but lately i think more and more managers understand the project success lies in team and knowledge, that is why we see project management tools that concentrates on collaboration and knowledge management. http://www.comindwork.com is one of those tools.

    • It includes complete set of features for web-based creation, editing, viewing, discussing, versioning, secured sharing and publishing of project plans.

      If you need a tool to manage your software development projects,
      I can reccommend
