Thymer is an absurdly simple web based project management tool. Thymer's approach is unique in that you can literally start using the system immediately without having to learn a complex project management software package. It sticks to the basics - a time tracking tool, to do lists, project lists, report functions, and the ability to share with colleagues on your team.
The interface has a one page design that allows you to see everything at a glance. It uses natural language processing so you can type what you think without having to remember specific commands. For example, if you're having lunch on Wednesday at the Yacht Club, you would type "@Wednesday lunch Yacht Club." The event will show up on your timeline.
I like how you can share tasks and projects with your colleagues as well as the ability to provide comments on different items. You can also drag and drop items exactly where you want. Thymer has 4 built in codes you can choose for your tasks - Discuss, Importance, Billable and Waiting for. It also allows you to add as many tags as you want to an item.
By design, Thymer eliminates fancy features the majority of people don't use or need. However, there are some items I would like to see such as SMS notification and coordination with calendar programs like Google or Office. The app is designed by Stunf, a Netherlands firm, and they are adding new features everyday. The latest are the ability to add tasks via email and Twitter.
Now in private beta, Thymer is free but when it is fully released there will be a subscription fee. Thymer has released 200 beta keys to Download Squad readers. Just enter the code DOWNLOADSQUAD. Be sure to let us know what you think.

From Project Management Best Software
We like Thymer; it brings a new approach, a new alternative… easy to use and automates many of the headaches involved in more complex project management tools. Thymer Natural Language Processing is very cool too! If your projects can be characterized as many tasks organized together probably Thymer is for you: marketing projects, web design projects, personal projects, etc.
We would not suggest Thymer if you need to manage R&D software development projects or super complex engineering or construction projects. Why? Thymer current version lacks resource management, Gantt charts and project templates… maybe in a future version, we will see!

The instant appeal for me with Thymer is the straightforward data entry process. Thymer uses a natural language parser, so I can type simple statements and it knows what I want and where I want it. There’s no tabbing through multiple selection boxes needed; a single carefully-constructed statement can tell the system everything it needs to know about my task.
