Mailbird is a mail client increasingly used for better productivity. It is becoming a champion in its space. It has a unique ecosystem wrapped up as "apps" from within it. Check out https://support.getmailbird.com/hc/en-us/articles/220107887-Mailbird-Apps
There are many apps across categories. Particularly, under "Get organized" category, WeekPlan's competetion Asana, Moo.do and Todoist show up. This means, users of these systems can create tasks and progress tasks to completion in more automated way than weekplan.
I know Weekplan has Zapier integration, which was more of less for data synchronization. What we are talking about in Mailbird context is the system helping a human in getting things done, focusing on his humanly activity while the mail client itself would handle a lot of mundane part. I still would like to ask, why is WeekPlan not showing up there?
Is it that Todoist / Moo.do / Asana more aggressive than team WeekPlan in striking strategic partnerships or coding integrations?
Did the Mailboard approach Weekplan and ask if you'd like to become an app in Mailbird (of course, in addition to your beautiful web interface, not intending to belittle your completeness)
The key point is, no one wants to write down tasks, go to a page/app and do tasks. Not even remember to go and tick. The human way of doing things is more natural. These new players with innovation are coming up to address that natural need. I'd like to see the already good WeekPlan to become better and cater to humans as they need to be catered.
I'd appreciate the views of the founder on this.
Remember, several great programs died when they failed to cater to the adoption pattern of humans. Even the ones that did great once (ex: Nokia) faded away when new humane way of dealing that same stuff was offered by someone else.
