Let me say this: if you’re a Trello user but aren’t a fan of their app (which is still quite new for them, by the way), be patient. They’re an incredible team of people who are truly interested and truly care about what users think. Every other uptdate includes a little box that specifically asks for feedback in whatever area they’ve attempted to improve or add on to. They’re super responsive to feedback and have only made the experience better over time. So keep that in mind. I’ve also seen people complain about it probably being an Electron app—so what? Native shortcuts and notifications alone make the app worth it, and if it was operating on the web before and you never complained then what’s the problem with this? People who don’t even know what Electron is won’t know the difference anyway.
For new users: Trello is the way to go. There are a lot of kanban-style project management apps but Trello offers the most flexibility and integration out of all of them. And my team has literally tried them all. It can be as complex or as simple as you need it to be, which I love. And you can make it work for anything, from home stuff to work stuff. I love that you can have teams to either separate your work groups or to separate home from work. I’m a student, so I also use Trello to keep track of assignments and easily integrate with my university Google account for all of my docs. I’ve even led group projects out of a Trello board before so that we’re not constantly emailing each other back and forth. I also freelance, so I’ll invite clients to a public board where they can interface with me and keep track of my progress, access common documents, and give feedback on designs. My wife and I have a board as a sort of “debt tracker” with lists for different cateogires and the “custom fields” powerup to input account numbers, amounts, balances, etc. So, if you can’t tell, Trello is very much my hub for everything because you can use it for anything. But just like any tool, you have to fully commit in order to get the value out of it or it will just be one more thing you have to check—don’t make that mistake.
Much love to the devs, you guys keep making a great product better and better.
