Firefly is a brand new app that we have been developing for a while. It allows teams to share, discuss and improve their designs.
Firefly is a perfect complement to 5pm project management tool – you can share links to Firefly designs in your 5pm projects and tasks. We plan to work on 5pm/Firefly their integration to make the posting easier.
Firefly is available for free while it is in beta – check it at www.FireflyApp.com.
Due to Google’s redesign of their Google Apps Marketplace, 5pm for Google Apps has a new location.

In their recent research Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota included 5pm in their top list of project management tools.
“5pm is a platform management system that offers easy linking to Google Docs, a time tracking desktop widget, custom logos and avatars to personalize for a team, email integration and well-developed mobile app features. This PM system is used by large corporations, such as McDonalds and U.S. Bank, and in addition to offering a two-week free trial, 5pm allows potential users to “login” to an example of a typical organization setup, rather than just a standard demo or video tour of the program.”
5pm is used by many EDUs around the world, you can see some of the examples here: http://www.5pmweb.com/pm_for_edu.php
