Sprint.Im is a project management tool intended for small teams. Users can set up projects that include tasks. Tasks can be viewed on a weekly level so users can stay focused as they work towards larger goals. Team members can upload and share files on Sprint.Im to make collaboration easier. An idea capture feature allows users to easily record good idea to a project-specific task wish list. Tasks can be assigned to a future “sprint.” Tasks can be viewed by status to see which are pending and need attention. Team members can post comments to discuss issues or collaborate. Tasks can be assigned to individual team members and their completion tracked. The application also includes built in calendars and team and day views.Show more screenshots »
Sprint.Im was developed by Bhargava A. The application was intended to assist small teams with their projects and goals. The current version allows users to assign tasks to individuals and focus on week long segments of work rather than the overwhelming bigger picture. The application has also simplified the task adding process after user’s complained that the existing options were too cumbersome. The application has many benefits, even though it doesn’t bring many new concepts to the project management table.
Sprint.Im includes many of the features a user would expect with any project management application. Users can add tasks, organize them into projects and assign them to other team members. Completion is tracked so everyone stays on the same page. It sounds good and works rather well. While the “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” concept applies here, it is still disappointing to see little in the way of innovation. Many of Sprint.Im’s features could be easily copy and pasted directly from other project management application’s feature lists.
Sprint.Im is well organized, but seems to suffer from a severe lack of originality when it comes to design. The user interface is easy to navigate but very bland, with a white background. There are hints of color present, but most of these are pale and pastel, making them seem to blend into the interface rather than highlight important parts of it. The task add field is rather large, which is a plus, but doesn’t detract from the mundane environment presented by Sprint.Im.
A new user can try Sprint.Im by clicking the red “Get Started for Free” button found along the left hand side of the homepage. The registration form on the next page asks the user for a company name, desired Sprint.Im URL, email address, password, full name, nickname and time zone. After submitting the form, the user is advised that they can access their account. The user will have to log in in order to do so.
Sprint.Im gives users three subscription plans to choose from. The first is the Micro plan which is free. The Micro includes up to two projects, 50 MBs of storage space, five ideas per project, unlimited users and SSL security. The Small plan costs $9 per month and includes up to 15 projects, 3 GBs of storage space and unlimited ideas. The Medium plan costs $19 per month and includes up to 45 projects and 10 GBs of storage space.
Sprint.Im is intended specifically for small size teams. A team looking for a watered down, simple way to keep track of projects and tasks may find Sprint.Im to be a good solution. The application is relatively inexpensive although it offers little as far as unique features or style are concerned. The user can track projects and get things done using Sprint.Im but may be enticed by more attractive alternatives.
