Trello remains a king for solo lists and collaboration

We have not forgotten about Corona, but the lockdowns are long over and many companies are moving from being 50 percent in the office to: ‘see for yourself’. Hybrid working, that works well, and that is partly because we have been given many useful tools for working together. Although Trello is also great for working alone: ​​or only doing private things. We discuss it in this App of the Week.


If you’re used to using Trello on the computer, it’s a crazy idea to start using it on the phone. On the desktop you have that nice overview of different lists next to each other and that works very well. This makes it easier to drag cards to other lists and you have a quick overview. That seems to be a bit missing in the app. After all, you cannot see everything in an overview.

The app vs desktop

Trello is king when it comes to to-do lists and collaborating on projects, and so is the app. It’s easy to use, it loads quickly and it offers almost the same experience as on the desktop, just a little less overview. However, that is a matter of getting used to – and getting to know your own boards well. It is all in all an app that is a must have on your phone.
