Do you Basecamp? If yes, then you should Bivouac! What I mean is, if you have a Basecamp account, then you should try the newly released Bivouac app for iOS. Admittedly, Bivouac is not a feature-rich Basecamp client like, say, Outpost 2. Rather, as stated in its App Store description, Bivouac "does one thing and does it well." And that one thing is basic Basecamp to-do management. Of course, in order to use Bivouac, you need a Basecamp account. And once you log in to your account and authorize Bivouac to access it, you're all set to manage your to-dos in the app. With Bivouac, you can view your assigned to-dos on the go, by date or by project. To mark a to-do as complete, just swipe it to the right. To view the discussion for a to-do on the full Basecamp site via Safari (no built-in browser, unfortunately), just swipe it to the left. That's pretty much all there is to know about Bivouac. Oh, it also happens to have a neat pull-to-refresh mechanic involving a mountain goat on the move. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, Bivouac is available now in the App Store for absolutely free. "This is an app that we wanted for our own use, so we made it," say the folks behind Bivouac developer Floate. "We hope you find it useful as well." I sure do, if only for easily ticking off my Basecamp to-dos on the go. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
