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

please bring back folder type

in your previous project manager we can easily assign folder for each type of files and was very convenient, but now we have to do one by one and sometimes I do mistake in typing folder or maps were saved in other folder for example. please bring back this feature, It is very handy and make our work very fast.
