Thymer is a online project management application, currently in private beta. It comes with a host of features. Unlike ActiveCollab and baseCamp which require you to learn complex project management techniques, Thymer is too simple — it has a to-do list, list of projects, reports on works, time-tracker. Instead of having modules like issue tracking and tickets, Thymer allows a task to be classified in 4 ways — Discuss (task can be discussed), Important (important task), Billable (task is payable) and Waiting for (awaiting completion).

One of the unique feature about Thymer is that it allows shorthands in creating tasks and comments. For instance if you want to assign a task to a team member, just prefix or suffix your task with @name (where name is the name of the team member) and the team member will find the task assigned to him when he logs in. You can find more commands at the Help Center.

Right now Thymer is at developmental stage. Thus, the service is invite-only. DownloadSquad is offering 200 beta invites to readers. All you have to do is to enter DOWNLOADSQUAD as the invite code when you sign up.

Thymer has a lot in common with Google Tasks. Thymer is just a better and more beautiful version of Google tasks with a lot more features. Also Thymer lets you share your to-do lists and projects among team members. While Thymer is good for managing pet projects and time-tracking, for complex projects, ActiveCollab is a clear winner.
