Comments: I can't imagine working without Float.

Pros:

Clear, minimalistic and great interface with awesome interactions/microinteractions. Integrations with tools like Asana, calendars, collaborations with the team, and simplicity of use! Fantastic mobile apps.

Cons:

I don't have any points to add here, I have not had any problems using Float - maybe a desktop application for Mac would be useful ;)

Need a full integration to be useful

Pros:

The possibilities with float are very high, we could have done so much more to get the most of that software.

Cons:

The redundance of the tasks, but it's more due to the use we do of the software than the software itself.
