So, as the title asks -- what software or website do you use in order to plan out and synchronize your efforts in order that all team members know what to do next? So far I've had to settle on using Cozi (it's not technically for development but does pretty much what I need), but if anyone's got a better free alternative, I'm all ears.

I meant more in the way of planning, less in the way of swapping assets.

Try Asana out, its a great organizational tool and its effective as hell but you've just gotta get all your members to use it; It allows you to set up pending tasks, the completion date for said task, sends email reminders and shows visible progress as you 'check' off your completed tasks.

Is your team spread out geographically?  If you are working in the same office (like my "apartment office"). The best thing in the world is simply post it notes on the wall.  You use a watered down form of agile, and cover the wall with the task people are working on.  It is easy to do a stand up in the morning, see what everyone is working on, and rearrange task priorities as a group.  Using some form of software kind of implies having a project manager since it will be tough to, as a team, rearrange your development priorities.

Most of us aren't even in the same state.

Working at setting up an Asana account now. It's so far blowing the pants off of me with how impressive it is. Thanks for pointing it my way.

In my opinion, the simpler, the better. I like to use google docs spreadsheets.
