Bottom line: (At the top) – Great service, Free and Fun.
What more can I say. Trello is a small web app that lets you make lists of lists and drag them around. I use it for my design team to figure out who is working on what. A tool like JIRA is just too big to handle simple tasks like this. Trello has a great user interface; it’s fast and has a bunch of features to help you not get bored.
I love that tools like this can be designed, programmed and hosted for the public without anything in return. Over half a million people use it and they keep adding features. See info on the Trello blog. I am playing now with the Android app. Nice work.
Why do I like Trello?
It is the little details. The way the thing you drag tilts on it’s side. It’s the little features that make input faster. The interaction design is excellent. I like the name, “Trello”. It makes me think of Jello which is very tasty. Trello is, more than anything else, quick. It’s incredibly quick to put a list together and work with it.
It fills me with confidence that cool tools can be created when you use something Trello. It inspires me in the work I do. Generally, I don’t want to review without any negatives, but this one is pretty standout. Ask me if it could be a full blown project management tool and I would have complaints. However, as a quick list tool, it’s awesome.
