| Still Maintained?
Do the developers of the tool continue to work on it, adding features and fixing problems?
| Open Source?
Is the tool's source code original source code freely available and may it be redistributed and modified? (This makes it possible for users to employ the tool for free, with some technical effort.)
Pick the platforms on which the user would primarily use the tool. Be as selective as possible. If a tool works mainly in the browser, select "Web". If the user can technically load the interface on a smartphone but have a very poor experience, do not select "Android" or "iOS". "Mac" and "PC" are for apps that must be installed to a machine in order to run, as opposed to running from a browser.

Select all that apply: "Free" if there are components of a service that can be used for free; "Paid" if payment is required (either one-time, or at a given rate upon use) for use of the tool's full functionality; "subscription" if a monthly payment is required.
| Languages Supported
What languages does the app's interface support? Note: some apps allow users to communicate in other languages but require the user to use an English language interface. In this case, the app is considered only to support "English".
|Czech, German, English, Spanish, French, French (Canada), Italian, Magyar, Dutch, Norse, Polish, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, Vietnamese, Turkish, Russian, Lithuanian, Chinese (Mandarin), Chinese (Cantonese), Japanese, Filipino|
| Skill Level Needed
Trello is a web-based tool for managing projects and personal tasks. It allows for people to exercise Project Management by dividing up tasks, creating checklists, setting deadlines, etc.
Projects are represented by boards, which contain lists (corresponding to task lists). Lists contain cards (corresponding to tasks). Cards are supposed to progress from one list to the next (via drag-and-drop), for instance mirroring the flow of a feature from idea to implementation. Users can be assigned to cards. Users and boards can be grouped into organizations.
Trello can be integrated with a variety of services. It can be tied to various File Sharing services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and One Drive. Team Collaboration tools like Slack can be integrated so that tasks, once they are accomplished, are published to the team. Slack also integrates with GitHub and Salesforce for its paying customers.
Most features within Trello are available for free. There is a monthly subscription rate for Trello Gold members, who have more features. Trello also provides users who successfully recruit others to the tool with one free month of Trello Gold.
What Makes This Tool Different from Others in its Class?
Trello exercises a unique methodology for program management, and puts an emphasis on a user friendly "drag and drop" experience. For basic projects it is very easy to use. The tool does not support other advanced features common in Project Management services, such as generating Gant Charts
