The Wrike Android App—available on the Google Play Store—is the latest app in the genre of project management software applications. This amazingly efficient application is the handiwork of Andrew Filev and his bootstrapped startup which has now garnered a lot of investors and venture capital. Similar to other tools for project management, Wrike allows users to manage tasks and collaborate with one other remotely, thereby improving the efficiency of the team and meeting deadlines more efficiently.
Wrike is available in the following languages for now: French, German, Portuguese, Japanese, English, Italian and Russian — but hopefully, the company will increase the number of languages so the entire globe can enjoy the full extent of this project management app.
The application is available in one of these five tiers: Free, Professional, Business, Wrike for Marketers, or Enterprise. If you have a company, you might be mnore interested in the Business and Enterprise plans, but if you are new to project management applications, then you might want to take it for a test drive via the Free version — although I must admit you won’t get the full experience of the app. The Wrike App is also integrated with a few other products like Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Microsoft Excel, Google Apps, Google Drive, and more.
The Free version of Wrike supports five users and an unlimited number of collaborators: they are allowed to see and engage in discussions in any project but they cannot create or edit tasks, simply provide feedback. It includes A 2GB storage space.
In the Professional plan, you are charged $9.80 per user per month, i.e., you pay more if there are more users and less if there are fewer users. This plan comes with a 5GB storage space although you are able to buy more or bring your own by connecting with an online storage service such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
The Business plan is probably the most robust offering for small businesses since it gives you a load of customization features plus easy executive reporting functionality for $24.80 per user per month.
Wrike for Marketers plan
This latest plan is designed for marketing and creative teams as it showcases a comlpete end-to-end workflow for creative projects: from work intake to brainstorming to proofing and approvals. This plan is $34.80 per user per month.
For this particular tier, you will have to contact the company in order to get an estimate price. The Enterprise version can support anywhere from five users to thousands!
The Android app
The Wrike app for Android does basically the same thing as its desktop counterpart, except with all the convenience of managing a project using a mobile device. You are able to prioritize your to-do list while having your morning coffee; review and collaborate on documents with Wrike mobile viewer; take photos and attach them to tasks and a few other things.
Pros & Cons
The Wrike Android app supports a countless number of projects; tracks the rate of a project; offers customizable dashboards and reports; works with Zapier; provides documentation for working with APIs. Just remember that you do need a Wrike account, and one of the Wrike plans in order to use it.
If you ever need a complete and robust project management solution, Wrike is for you. It offers you ways to integrate with other applications and setting it all up is easy. You have access not only to a Gantt chart maker but also to a task management application that fits in your mobile, making it convenient to manage work while on the go.
