Web interface looks outdated. We are not in 2000 anymore.

I respect your opinion and I can see where you’re coming from. They’re very opinionated (needless to say). The “giant monolith” approach — that is, a central database with models, controllers etc. — makes all apps, native or web, share a lot of views, templates and user interface components.

They’re not into React or other JavaScript frameworks. Their web app is pure html & css “sprinkled” with js where appropriate.

Neverminding the technologies behind it all, the usability and easy of use should be what matters.

What are you missing? Why is it you’re feeling that the web app is outdated?

I love Basecamp and the UI especially. Other reasons and alternatives are reasons to why I personally use it less and less. But the user experience and the intuitiveness of BC3, I think is impeccable. Also—I actually think it’s beautiful. It’s so clear and the absence of noise make focus and real work a bit easier.

Basecamp is best to project management tools for a small team, it has great experience in web/desktop. the mobile app experience is bit disappointing. overall it's great.

Easy to use. Logical. Supports multiple projects, multiple team members. It does all the basics well for management tasks without overcomplicating things. I miss the "Applause" button, so for that, 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

It's usefulness has passed. There are better alternatives out there. Basecamp is basically just a fancy way to store all your emails in one location so you dont have to open up 20 emails to follow the trail. Sure it has some other features also, but that is the core of it. Nowdays lots of applications do that and more for the same price or less.
