Whether you’re a student or a professional, you’ve likely had to work with others on one occasion (or many). There’s nothing worse than having a project go south because Jimmy didn’t get the memo or Julie forgot that the presentation was today at 2 pm. These five collaboration apps for iPhone and iPad should hopefully alleviate project-induced stress.
“Slack brings team communication and collaboration into one place so you can get more work done, whether you belong to a large enterprise or a small business.

• Communicate with your team and organize your conversations by topics, projects, or anything else that matters to your work
