Qubity is an organizer intended for personal and team related tasks. The user can set up individual tasks or work with others to collaborate on a single project. Tasks can be added and viewed in different ways, including a random view and timeline view. Wikis allow users to create collaborative articles and pages on their Qubity account. Project and task details are displayed in a side bar each time a new task is selected so the user can get all the information they need without looking too far. The application groups tasks by current status, including pending, started and completed. These can be viewed in individual columns side by side. Files can also be added and versions accessed as the user works on Qubity.Show more screenshots »
Although it is not widely discussed on the web, Qubity has received some positive comments. Most of these are focused on the application’s versatility and convenience. The user can store all their project information, including both individual undertakings and team projects, in one place. The application helps the user establish a global timeline so they can access all the information in one place. The application was originally constructed to satisfy the personal productivity needs of its founders.
Qubity allows the user to view their data in different ways. The user can review a timeline that shows them each item and when it will be completed. The user can also review columns of tasks sorted by status. This provides the user with more perspectives that can help tremendously when trying to find the most efficient way to complete a project. Qubity’s purpose is to help the user be more productive, and it really lives up to that with its many tools and viewing options.
Qubity manages to retain just enough personality to look original without interfering on the professional style found throughout the user interface. Hints of bold color are used to differentiate dates, time periods and other data. The application is primarily white with a dark grey background, which creates an appealing contrast that keeps everything visually organized. The user can try different views to find one that works the best for their individual needs and projects.
A new user can begin by clicking the green “Start Collaborating Now” button along the right hand side of the Qubity homepage. Just below the button is a second blue button for users who prefer to sign up with a Facebook account. Those who prefer to go the traditional route are asked to supply a name, valid email address, password, preferred language and time zone. After submitting the form, the user is advised that they must check their email inbox for an activation message before accessing their new account.
Qubity currently offers users the option of one paid and one free account. The free account includes unlimited mini projects with up to three collaborators and 50 MBs of storage space. The Enterprise account costs $10 per user per month and upgrades to include unlimited full projects. Full projects include unlimited collaborators, 2 GBs of storage space and priority level support. The site also mentions three other account options to be added in the future. One is the Small account that includes unlimited mini projects and five full projects. The Medium will offer up to 10 full projects and the Large will include up to 25 full projects. No pricing information has been provided for these options.
Qubity is a helpful tool for individuals and small businesses. Professionals can manage their projects alone or with others through Qubity. The pricing options are affordable as well. A freelancer or startup company may opt for the limited benefits of a free plan while a company with a little more cash flow can pay for more access to full project features.
