There’s no shame in messing things up! We all have done that at some point of time. We are, after all, humans and humans make mistakes all the time! The road to success is never a smooth one. It needs strategically planning your moves, thinking about the obstacles which may crop up and most importantly, organizing everything that you think.
The Trello app icon
Keeping a diary to note down your appointments and stuff is old-school. And so is the board, with all the sticky notes sticking on them. This is the age of technology, and who do we turn for a solution but technology itself! The Trello Android App is what technology came up with as an amazing solution to Organize your life. It can be used for about anything, right from strategically developing business plans to noting down recipes to keeping tabs on how much you have progressed on keeping your wife happy after the last day’s fight – Trello will help you achieve anything.
The Welcome screen, as Trello welcomes you aboard
The app has been designed and developed very methodically. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with the sleek and stylish UI of the app. It is user-friendly, and is absolutely a fit for the ones who are in desperate need of it. Why, you may even start using it as your personal secretary and save money in the process, rather than hiring a person for the job.
The home screen, containing the list of active boards or projects you are currently working on. The default board guides you through the working of the app.
Trello understands that the stepping-stone to achieving your goal is to keep a tab on your ideas. The app is divided into simple sections. The app mostly revolves around the BOARDS, one of which you can assign to each of the ideas you have from time to time, or any particular project that you are a part of. By project, I mean anything right from cleaning your garage to an actual business project. So, your project is bound to have several steps towards its completion, and the Boards give you exactly that facility. Once you have made up a board, you can share the thing with the people you want.
The look-and-feel of the Boards
The Boards consist of Lists. These lists serve as a reminder for smaller goals which fall under the project. You can attach cards to specific lists in order to underline their importance. The cards can again be shifted from one list to another in order to let yourself and others know as to how that particular task is progressing. The cards can be colour-coded and you can set each up with a deadline. If the project is a group one, people can vote up or down your cards by up-voting for or against your cards. That way, you get to know which of your ideas are getting accepted and which are not!
Trello – Labels and cards
Trello has a problem with coping with long and continuous projects. It’s actually best for the sort of projects which need to be completed as soon as possible. Again, once you have completed a board or a project, you just get to close it. There’s no option available for deleting the entire thing. I found it very good, in spite of its short-comings because it possesses the rare ability to break down a complex thing into simple and effective layers. Being a completely web-based app, it can very easily take up the task of being your daily organizer, if you utilize it efficiently. Follow the download button to get it for free.

He harbors certain thoroughly misguided self-impressions like he has a refined aesthetic sense (our website’s visuals are NOT inspired by his ideas) or that he has a deep baritone. However, we choose to ignore these as he sometimes comes up with good ideas notwithstanding the fact that they are articulated in confusing managerial jargon; perhaps explained by the fact that he is an MBA from IIM Bangalore.
