Moovia is designed to provide a collaborative environment for teams to work on projects. It creates a network with social media features and Google docs integration to effectively share and work together on projects of any size.
There is no traffic history for Moovia. It was founded in October 2011 by Rodrigo G. and Daniel W. from Brazil. It is still in its early stages and is adding and changing features quite often.
One problem with Moovia is that, while there are samples for each type of item, there is not a step-by-step user guide to assist users in managing the app. Once a user is signed in, they have to sign back out view the "quick tour", which only shows what the app is capable of, not how to use it. Clicking on Blog takes the user to Moovia's Facebook page. After much searching, a "quick guide" was found in small print at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately, it focuses on the agile methods and overall definition instead being a guide. The app is not particularly intuitive for someone inexperienced in using collaborative tools.
Faced with the myTodo page with no instruction is somewhat unnerving. The interface is very clean and appealing, but faced with the menu, is confusing without some kind of direction of how to begin.
Viewing the Sample project was still somewhat confusing, so for the review, a new project was created. This required a project name, description, alias, project leader name, task group level, and client name. A small alien character prompts the user to invite team members next. This direction disappears within about 30 seconds. Invitations are sent via email through the app.
Each Milestone (note that a newer feature is to use terminology that the user is used to - sprints for SCRUM projects and milestones for PMI projects) has space for a category, start and end date, days to due date, status of job, and notes. Tasks may be assigned to people, given a due date, days to due date, estimated hours for the task, percent finished, number of hours used, status, notes, and actions. This data can be used to create a BurnDown Chart.
Events may be added with location, organizer, start and end dates, participants, and notes. Users may link Moovia to their Google accounts to share project documents.
The Backlog tab lists "client requirements", including major features, functions, components, or processes for the product or service being provided.
The Strategy tab lists project description, goals, metrics, risks, communication plan, and project logistics.
Project Reports consolidate the project information into a .CSV file for calculations.
With all of that being said, this is an overly difficult application to use. Without experience utilizing a similar tool, some users may have difficulty entering the required information without a detailed tutorial or guide. Collaboration is a strength, offered via chat, wall message and team messaging.
Users may sign in with Google or Facebook, or create a unique ID for Moovia. If creating a unique account, full name, email, and a password are needed. An email with activation link is sent to the user's provided email account. The link takes the user to the myTodo page with projects, tasks, social links, and events.
It is completely free of charge to use Moovia. Users are not restricted by space or number of projects.
This application is clearly targeted to those familiar with agile tools. This would not be recommended for school teams working on projects or other non-professionals unfamiliar with Burndown or Gantt charts. Business may find that once familiar with the interface, it will make project management easier. Hopefully, Moovia's team will add a user guide that leads users new this type of tool through the process and assist with understanding some of the process and resulting data.
