Project Manager has been a steady part of our workflow and I have to say that it is worth every cent, starting from sharing libraries up to asset tracking
So my favorite is Project Manager

We have used connecter and Project Manager for years and Connecter is (was) free it never gave us all the options and features we got with Project Manager.

Project Manager (KStudio) vs Connecter App (Design Connected)

Hey guys,
I'd like to know your opinion about 2 different software.
Have you used Connecter App (Design Connected) or Project Manager (KStudio).
In our Studio we have used Connecter for the last year, but now that they are launching a new Pro version (Connecter Teamwork), I'd like to know if anyone has tried both software and can tell me the differences between them, pros & cons of each software and your favourite.

Thank you,
Victor
