Project Bubble - $50/mo - Very nice tool… Only a pity that you can't make more levels in subtasks.
Wrike - $49/mo - Nice tool. Suited for development. Didn't succeed in creating a subtask.
Viewpath - $15/mo - More a planning tool, like Microsoft Project. Not really useful to manage development. Because there are to many 'ad hoc' activities. This tool is more for the planning of a project with dedicated people. Not useful for a lead developer.
