Trello offers a very generous free version that has no ads, no restrictions on the number of users, and very little restriction on how the program can be used. The paid features are generally cosmetic, such as the ability to change the background, add stickers, etc. See More
Trello works best with medium to small projects and with very high-level overviews. It is less effective for projects that require very granular management due to the fact that it becomes considerably more difficult to keep track of various cards and priorities as they are pushed off the screen.

Trello calls items used in the workflow “cards.” Cards are double-sided and can contain subtasks as well as notes and other details. Card columns can be used to simulate a workflow by moving cards from left to right as they are completed, or as a way of indicating task priority. The workflow is highly flexible as the columns are completely customizable to suit the task flow. For example, tasks can be put through a workflow "idea > approved > in-progress > pending review > released" or simply "ideas > released" depending on the granularity level needed. This makes Trello a great solution to feature management as it's possible to set up boards to handle everything from agile sprints to a more generic to-do list, all with status management. See More
There are two primary columns: the board is shown on the left and all the other controls on the right. The main means of interaction is dragging and dropping to-do cards into the various lists. The board structure is very customizable, and includes a variety of features that help along the way: color-coding, due dates, card images, checklists with a graphics bar that allows following progress easily, and card aging for cards that haven’t been touched in a long time.

Trello has permissions at the board level as well as the ability to assign multiple people to each card. There are a lot of sharing options available and boards can be made visible for the public. It's also possible to subscribe to a card to be notified of its progress. The simplicity of the UI makes collaboration easy because it’s very simple to see the progress of each card and who is responsible for it. It also updates constantly to reflect real-time changes in progress.

You can have multiple groups and you have an overview of all them in your dashboard. This means that you can have many unrelated groups of, for example, different freelance projects or professional and personal things without them getting mixed up. You can also quickly switch between them. See More
Flexible and powerful GTD/TODO/outliner app. With active and helpful development team (on Slack). Tried todoist, nirvana-hq, doit.im, wunderlist, checkvist, org-mode. I like it because it combines flexible outliner where I can keep all my things with Agenda/Calendar view where I can focus on most important ones. See More
Maciej Bielecki's Experience
You have three options (classic, outliner, and dark) for themes. The differences are specific to how your content is formatted (for example: how bullets are displayed, if at all). You can also toggle the "grayscale" option if you don't want your tags to be in color. See More
My coworker recommended Quire (https://quire.io) to me a while back ago, we are both project managers, which means that we got to handle several projects at the same time. and Quire helps me to do that really well. I can jot down all the details and tasks that I need to finish in the list view and use the Kanban board to track the progress. The board is especially helpful since I can oversee the entire workflow at a glance. I will know which tasks are still stuck in the beginning. I definitely recommend Quire to other managers out there like myself. I also found some posts about migrating from other solutions to Quire, which was also very helpful. https://quire.io/free-asana-alternative-migration https://quire.io/blog/p/How-to-migrate-to-Quire-Copy-and-paste.html See More
When you have to link to, for example, a website, you can't attach the URL of the site to a word. You have to post the full URL instead. You can't have, for example, Slant, you instead have to post http://slant.co. It's especially annoying if you have a long URL that takes up a lot of space in the document. See More
Any sublist can be viewed as a top-level list. This sounds simple but makes WorkFlowy extremely powerful. For example, the same line item, "write my book," can simultaneously be a to-do in my task list and the container for my entire working document. See More
The offline desktop requires installing Google Chrome first before the WorkFlowy app can be installed. This is not good news for non-Chrome users especially users who frequently uses Firefox or Safari as their default browsers, in which Chrome app also suffers memory leak and battery issues. See More
All notes are part of a list, which makes it easy to organize everything. Nested lists allow for organizing notes into hierarchical categories of infinite depth. All lists can be folded. WorkFlowy also has tags and instant full-text search. See More
