Basecamp 3 for Mac and Windows is here!

One of the best things about Basecamp is you can use it almost anywhere. All you need is a web browser and an internet connection. Laptop, phone, tablet, hotel lounge, school computer lab, Mom and Dad’s den — you know, the one with the CRT monitor… Anyway… Basecamp also is available in fully featured apps for iOS and Android that offer the additional power and convenience of native features on your phone or tablet.

Today, in that same spirit, we’re proud to announce Basecamp 3 for Windows and Mac.

If you’re using Basecamp 3 daily on your computer we think you’ll find the app a big level-up from the browser experience. Here’s why:

It’s right at home

Once installed, Basecamp 3 has its own icon on your desktop, in the dock on your Mac, Windows taskbar, and when switching applications. Instead of being hidden in tab within your web browser, Basecamp is now front-and-center.
