Pyká is a revolutionary new project library app and the world’s first Work Hub. Designed for people who work in project-based environments, Pyká takes your project library to a whole new level. There are many challenges and problems that arise when individuals or teams work on projects. While many solutions exist to help people manage their time, almost nothing exists to help people manage their project library and files… until today!
Features for individuals and teams:
• Pyká takes the mess of files and folders on your hard drive and pulls them into one unified project library.
• Pyká treats your projects like a family tree. In Pyká, you can keep as many different versions of your projects as you want without duplicating data or making a mess of folders on your hard drive. Pyká organizes, tracks, manages, and stores your project versions, bringing intuitive version control to the masses for the first time in a friendly and visual way.
• Pyká lets you use and reuse common assets like logos, movies, and images, as many times as you wish while storing them only once. This dramatically reduces your library’s storage footprint.
• Pyká libraries can exist in one location or span multiple storage volumes in multiple possible configurations. This allows users who have a large number of external hard drives to combine their storage space to build a large library along with fail-safe backup libraries.
• And best of all, Pyká orients your project storage system around search. Instead of making you remember exactly where something is stored, Pyká works with any information you do remember. So everything you’ve ever made is only a few keystrokes away.
Features for small and large teams:
• Using shared network storage, Pyká gives users the ability to watch projects while other users make changes. Project managers and coordinators can now get live updates on their desktop every time a teammate makes a change.
• Using shared network storage, Pyká allows large teams to collaborate on massively large-scale projects by dividing them into sub-projects, that can be assigned to different team members. Whether you’re authoring a large company report, building a monthly magazine, creating a movie with lots of scenes and shots, or working on any other large-scale project, Pyká does not shrink from the job.
• Using shared network storage, Pyká also takes the headache out of passing projects between team members. Never send another project zip file in an email chain again. Never go digging through a team member’s folder to find a project you’re responsible for again. Never suffer the consequences of one team member’s disorganization again. Collaboration is at the heart of Pyká’s design.
• Fully compatible with most SMB and AFP network file sharing storage volumes.
These and many other things are what make Pyká a powerful tool for individuals and teams who work on projects.
Fixed in this update:
• Fixed minor UI glitches created by macOS Mojave.
Changed in recent updates:
• All token fields including the search field now display multiple lines of tokens. Before, token fields only displayed one line at a time, and users had to use up/down arrows to see other rows of tokens. Now users simply type or click into a token field and the token field will expand to display all of its contents.
• We are pleased to announce full support for package and bundle files! Before package and bundle files were invisible in your library and local to the project that used them. Now Pyká treats them like normal assets in your library. This is especially important for GarageBand and Xcode users. Any commits to a project will import all package/bundle files as assets including all previous versions of the file in the project. Package/Bundle files can also be dragged into your library to import them. Thank you as always to our users for their input as Pyká grows to meet their needs :)
• Single files can now be imported as a project both in the create project panel and by dragging them into the visualizer.
• Pyká's sidebar more clearly displays how many projects are open and watched.
• Added a new list view! Now all search results can be viewed and sorted as icons or in a list!
• Pyká now offers an intuitive navigator for users who would prefer to navigate rather than search!
• Pyká now allows users to search for files by campaigns they have been included in.
• Pyká now allows users to search for files by users who have worked with them on projects.
Fixed in recent updates:
• Fixed a minor glitch that sometimes caused the Edit Multiple Items panel to refuse to upload changes.
• Fixed a glitch that sometimes results in a crash when importing very tiny files (under 256 bytes).
• Fixed a glitch that cut searches short on some computers before Users finished typing.
• Fixed a minor UI glitch that caused tables to be black.
Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic file and space management!
Simply put, this app does everything I never knew I needed. I have been working in web design/development for a decade now, and the company I’ve spent the last 4 at is fairly disorganized. I’m so glad I found Pyka! It’s clever, simple, and above all collaborative. It only took me a day to start creating and organizing products. I’ve only been adding files into the app for a day now, but the more I use it, the more it feels like one of those apps I’ll be wondering about how I ever lived without it next year. If you work with files, you should give this a shot.
This is an interesting concept for a project management app
I’ve been working in Graphic Design for 15 years and needed a better solution for storing my project files for some time. However, I didn’t realize before I downloaded this app, that my project storage system could be doing a whole lot more for me. While it’s been a week, the app is already doing cool things for my workflow. I frequently have to show different versions of my projects to my clients. And since my projects tend to go through different rounds of changes, the app seems to handle this intuitively. The space saving feature seem to work as advertised. My library only grew by a handful of megabytes when I saved a new version of a big project with minor changes. Before pyka, this kind of an operation would have meant copying either my project folder, or some of the files that were going to change. In short, that kind of thing can get hairy and disorganzed fast. But this app does it in a pretty straightforward way. Another thing I’ve noticed is my habbits are starting to change while I work. For instance: I’ve stopped doing that thing we sometimes do when we’re exploring an idea in photoshop that we’re not totally comitted to yet, so we hit the undo button about a hundred times until we get back to our original idea. In this app, I just save a version of my project at every resting point and whenever I want to go back, I just go back. I would add one note for the developers: the user interface, while good, needs to be just a bit more responsive. But all in all, this app feels like a professional grade tool for people in the industry like myself.
I really like this app
This is a really handy app! Once I finished the tutorials and learned the ins and outs, I started using it cautiously at first. But now it’s becoming an important part of my workflow. I love being able to backtrack on a project. It shows my project history like a family tree which makes way more sense. This helps me a lot in my line of work. It also pulls together my whole project library in one place. It takes about a minute to import a project. I’ve been spending about 30 minutes every morning adding projects. And I almost forgot, it backs up my data too! Great idea. Great app. Nice job.
