Basecamp API

From 37signals. Basecamp is a unique project collaboration tool. Projects don't fail from a lack of charts, graphs, or reports, they fail from a lack of communication and collaboration. Basecamp makes it simple to communicate and collaborate on projects. The Basecamp API is implemented as vanilla XML over HTTP.

It may be good for communication, but for managing my projects I chose Wrike http://www.wrike.com/ after reading this article http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/134816/project_management_lite_basecamp_and_wrike.html
