Editors' Review

by   / April 30, 2015

A versatile virtual whiteboard, Trello can handle to-do lists, project management, collaborations, and even outlining for novels or screenplays. It relies on the straightforward concept of customizable boards, to which you and your co-workers can add cards and lists.

Pros

Much more than a to-do app: While as easy to use as any virtual to-do list, Trello features cards to which you can add images, videos, comments, and checklists and which you can edit or manage jointly with friends or colleagues. These flexible cards can be as sophisticated as you want them, so that you can use them not only for basic planning, but also for advanced project management and the systematic organization of complex ideas for creative projects.

Quick and practical: Trello's main appeal lies in the ease with which you can create and customize boards and add to them cards that you can rearrange and turn into lists. It takes only a few taps to get started, and using the app continues to be easy even when you have dozens of cards because of the effortless dragging and dropping capabilities and the ability to quickly rename or archive your cards.

Cloud syncing: Your boards, notes, and lists are automatically saved on the cloud just as you make them, from where they can be accessed on different devices via companion apps or a Web interface. Since your data is always backed up, you can never misplace or lose it.

Cons

Eats your time: Despite the app's clarity of purpose, creating well-organized boards with lots of cards still takes time, more than using plain to-do apps. There's always the temptation to add images, attachments, and descriptions to planned activities, as well as to share them with friends and comment or like the activities your friends share with you.

Widgets could be improved: Somewhat unwieldy, the widgets don't let you quickly view boards.

Bottom Line

If you enjoy planning things, Trello can make your life a lot easier, whether you want to use it for personal needs, like making tiny grocery lists while you're in the bus or for managing assignments at work while allowing comments and edits from other users. Its definitive advantage over similar apps is its awesome customization power.
