8apps: Project Planning Meets Social Networks

The guys at Jonkenpon, a fresh Tokyo startup, just launched their first product. These guys are formerly from one of the top web consultancies in Japan and their portfolio of projects include everything from user submitted sketches to taking an obscure Japanese design site to a high traffic success.

I’ve only got a handful of invites if you want exclusive first access to this service. Will they be able to crack the market with players like 37signal’s BaseCamp and RememberTheMilk?

Only time will tell, but with their usability obsession and knack for creating fun and lightweight solutions, I think they have a big opportunity to capture some market share.

Check out some of the screencasts at the official announcement below.
