Wrike mobile apps: on-the-go project management


Mobile Industry Review readers are a busy bunch of people, and no doubt many of you need to manage complex projects and teams of all sizes on a daily basis. You may have already heard about a product called Wrike – highly appraised project management software that provides a great deal of flexibility and features for teams of all sizes. Besides a web-based interface, the company also offers a couple of mobile apps for both iOS and Android, making it even easier to stay on top of tasks and projects while you’re on-the-go.

Wrike Project Management software excels on mobile

If you have ever been part of a team collaborating on shared tasks and activities, you may have used project management tools such as Wrike in order to streamline the process and make it easier to work with remote co-workers, for example. After having read up about Wrike over the past few days, I’m particularly impressed with the mobile and tablet apps.

Before we expand on those, it’s worth noting that the apps are free, and the company has a couple of different service plans – Free (for up to five users), Professional (for 5 or 15 users at $49 and $99 respectively), and Enterprise which has even more features.

Full details about pricing for Wrike are available here.

After trying Wrike and watching dozens of tutorial videos on their YouTube channel to understand more about the product, it’s actually something that I can see myself using for managing the various projects I’m involved with. In my case, team members are split between Europe and Asia, and we use several tools to manage tasks and share information. Sometimes that’s as simple as Google Drive for document sharing and in other cases we use JIRA and BitBucket. However, I’d definitely consider switching to Wrike as the project management tool of choice, depending on the nature of the project of course.

So what’s it like to use Wrike? The web interface is modern and simple to use, with panels that open on the right of the screen to display more information about the current project or task. On the left is a list of folders/projects, which can also be shared with teammates and contain additional tasks that can be assigned to people. Wrike also lets you assign dates for any specific tasks – such as the due date (or spread it over a couple of days), and view items in an interactive Gantt chart – perhaps the most useful element of Wrike in my specific case.

In terms of the mobile/tablet apps, Wrike appears to have put a lot of effort into fine-tuning its online project management software for tablets and smart phones. It acknowledges that many people use services such as Dropbox and Google Drive and supports integration with a huge list of third party products and services (the full list can be found here).

The Android app can be downloaded for free from Google Play, and the iOS app is on the iTunes Store.


  1. Hi! I’m looking for somebody with practical background of work with Wrike, Jira or Worksection. I need project management software for a small company and these three tools were advised as good ones to me. Can anybody compare them? Their prices really differ but I can’t find any info why. Thanks for any advice!
