  1. Fantastico! favourite would be the project stay in crontol. It’s and excellent idea… i hope you could development the project manager in different language… THANKSSS

  2. I would love the Invoices feature. I’m not the best with numbers, so this clean and organized feature would be super helpful! Beautiful app!

  3. Being a visual person I love the way so much of the information is displayed in a visual way, I think it would really help me keep track of things. Plus the fact that it is well designed, which as a designer makes me all excited to use it.

  4. This rocks – can’t pick just one feature that outshines another. I’ve struggled with other systems that were clunky or missing elements along the project management spectrum. Solo is on the right track – it makes me want to spend time on the administrative aspects of my business because all of the elements are intuitively integrated and the interface is just yummy!

  5. Solo is an application that already feel the need to use. Through its simplicity everything is easy to manage as all projects, all clients, all expenses and all earnings. It is a wonderful tool.

  6. All the features are great. They all could really change the way I work.

    But my favorite feature it’s definitely Timesheet. It would help me so much! I could track every hour spent on each project. And I would know precisely how much to charge based on similar jobs.

    It would be great!

    Thanks for the chance, Ryan! Really appreciated it.

  7. As a freelance designer, I like the timesheets feature. It would be very useful for tracking and managing my time spent on different projects. Thanks for incuding me in the giveaway.

  8. The Projects section looks great…since I don’t have a Project Manager keeping me (or clients) on track, this application would be perfect!

  9. I think the integration of so many elements would be invaluable, more than any individual element itself. Not sure the calendars are all that useful for showing an overview, though there many other features I’d like to use. The time tracking overview looks good.

  10. This looks fantastic app! I’d love it to keep track of various collaborative projects due at different websites I sell at! Also would love to use the time-tracking feature… and maybe figure out just how much of my time gets piddled away on stupid stuff… lol… That would probably be quite an eye-opener and motivator to spend my time more wisely! 🙂

  11. I would use the project planning as I pull together people with specific skill sets for my client projects in addition to my own creative direction participation. Cheers E.

  12. Boy, I desperately need the ability to track my projects in a way that is actually useful. As it is, scraps of paper with scrawled quotes, proposed deadlines and half-hearted attempts at tracking hours swirl around my office/guest bedroom like a January blizzard off Lake Michigan. SAVE ME (Normally I find ALL CAPS tacky, but really, I hope this program can SAVE ME. Especially with a FREE YEAR. Thanks)

  13. This is one beautiful app and finally one that uses Clarendon!!! I’d use it as my digital secretary, because it has EVERYTHING one needs as a freelancer, most of all the Project Page for me!
