Get your Backpack now.

Like many others, I recieved an email this morning inviting me to try Backpack. 37signals, makers of the uber popular project management 'webility' (web based utility) - Basecamp, has just launched another niche product.

Backpack is a personal organizer, where in you put your to-do list and other related everyday information. You can set reminders (email, SMS) on tasks that you've scheduled and even share your lists with others. Another interesting thing I noticed, is the clean use of XMLHttpRequest. Its an extremely useful tool for people who spend most of their time online.

I've signed up and have been using it for a little while, and for the first time, I'm seriously considering going in for paid service. I'm sure to find a lot more things to do with it over time.

Go on, try Backpack and see for yourself.

Hey adel I think the backpack API is out as well for personal use, if u can go through it and let us know how that works out it would be cool.

Hey Rama

Yeah, I got the mail from Jason announcing the launch of the API. Haven't had the time to look at it in detail. Should check it out sometime soon. Thanks anyway! :)
