Unveiling our new release at TechCrunch Disrupt…

DropTask at TechCrunch Disrupt Startup AlleyEarlier this week, we hit the road and headed to London for one of the most anticipated tech events of the year, TechCrunch Disrupt, to showcase our new release for the first time. Least to say, we were all extremely excited to unveil the beautiful new design and demo the enhanced functionality of the app. In fact, we were so eager to get set up and show off our brand new app, we were the first to arrive!DropTask team first to set up

Before long, the doors opened and there was a real buzz about the place as exhibitors, members of the press, and the general public began to flood into the arena to check out some of this year’s hottest game-changing technologies.

Located amongst approximately two hundred other companies in the Startup Alley, we were there to shine the light on the new DropTask. With a complete redesign of the interface, the new app brings a fresh, clean look and boasts a range of modern and vibrant colors – which sure did the job of catching the attention of passers-by. You couldn’t help but be drawn in to the uniquely colorful and shapely design of DropTask, as intrigue spread about the functionality of the app.

This was our first opportunity to show off the new release, and we couldn’t wait to demo the strengthened organization and management capabilities which the team have been busy developing over the past year.  A brand-new way of managing your project in stages (as opposed to focusing on time), makes way for a more agile way of working, and can be implemented when using methodologies such as Kanban and GTD. In addition to this, enhanced scheduling across each project will give you a clear overview of your work so you know exactly what needs to be done and when.DropTask demo with visitors at the event

With this (plus a whole host of extra features), visitors were able to get stuck in and try the app first-hand for themselves. The feedback we received was immensely positive and users found it easy to relate to the new ways of working – envisioning how they would use the app for organizing both their personal and professional projects and to-dos.

During the exhibition, a whole line-up of events were taking place on the centre stage – including the main event of the afternoon, Startup Battlefield.TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield Competition

Battlefield is all about bringing the latest innovations and technologies together on one stage to compete for the coveted Disrupt Cup, and despite losing out on the top spot, we made it through to the final 10 through a public vote – and for that we can’t thank you enough.
