Sometimes you need help getting things done, and Basecamp is particularly adept at that. Basecamp is the most popular project management tool on the web (we even use it here at Android Police), but now there's an official Android app with to-dos, discussions, and more. There is much celebration on the team right now.

Basecamp has a mobile web interface, but this app is (thankfully) more than just a web wrapper. This is a native Android app with an action bar, tabs, and a navigation panel. The Basecamp app can access all your projects and includes up to the minute timelines of activity on each one.

The app itself is free, but you can't just start messing around with it – a paid Basecamp account (or trial) is required. If your employer uses Basecamp, you probably already know. Just log in with your account, and you're on the way to the wonderful world of efficient project management on Android.

    I'm all for a n Android app, but that demo/promo video was horrible, couldn't really see anything going on. Just some dude swiping around constantly.

    I still can't believe this just happened. Is this real life?

      Or is this just fantasy?

        You know how I know it's real life? Because the app has crash bugs and hangs/dies all the time. I stopped using it for now and went back to the site.

    I've got to say the video was pretty horrible, but as someone who has to introduce new clients to Basecamp all the time, not having a native Android app was getting pretty annoying, if only because it makes our company and Basecamp look a little less polished when the only option is a mobile site. Can't wait to start messing with my massive pile of projects with it!

      I haven't really spent much time with the software. Would you recommend it for a construction management type scenario? Does it integrate at all with MS Project or Primavera?
