Aeriform – aka developer Michael Christophersson – has released Tape: a “simple, elegant and intimate project management tool designed for artists, designers, or any creative professionals”.

The software provides essential features for tracking the progress of tasks within a creative projects, for roughly the price of a coffee.

An intuitive way to manage personal creative projects
Regular visitors to CG Channel may remember Ramma, Christophersson’s “smart, simple and beautiful” render-monitoring tool, which was first released in 2016.

Tape takes a similarly stripped-down approach to project management, providing only the essential tools to manage your creative projects, and nothing else to distract you.

Users can list tasks or deliverables, group them into collections corresponding to individual projects, change their completion status at a click, and view a graph showing the overall completion status of a project.

The software doesn’t currently support multiple users – Christophersson says that it’s “definitely something on the roadmap” – but it looks an intuitive way to keep track of personal projects.

Updated 27 July 2018: Michael Christophersson has released Tape 1.1. The update improves performance, and introduces the ability to copy and paste, and to right-click tasks to change their status.

Updated 15 January 2020: Michael Christophersson has released Tape 1.3. The update adds new hotkeys for common operations, including changing the size of interface text, and a set of UI themes.

Pricing and system requirements
Tape 1.3 is available for Windows, Linux and macOS. It costs $5.
