37Signals Relaunches Backpack with New Features

Next Story

Competition: Cominded - What is It?

BackPackRemember Backpack, the underdog organizational tool from 37Signals? It’s back, and with a considerable set of features to make your life easier. Being the great user-oriented company they are, they’ve beautifully outlined the new addition of features on this page, but for the loyal readers who like it other-wise, I’ll try and go over some of them.

BackPackPerhaps the most noticeable addition in this relaunch is the fact that every element on the page is essentially portable–or at least, moveable. You can reorder all the elements on the page as you’d like it (video demo) but more importantly, drag it over to other pages to adjust the clutter and split them up (video demo). Additionally, sections and pages can be divided with the new divider.

Some of my favorite features from this release include the new toolbar which makes it easier to add new elements and the fact that every page now has an RSS feed — imagine the possibilities! Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg, a lot of small bugfixes and improvements have been included.

For anyone who has found 37 signals products like Backpack useful in the past, this is a must see.
