There are dozens of task management apps, and I feel like I’ve tried all of them. Right now, I use Trello to make sure everything I need to get done gets done. Trello is a flexible task-management app that works on iOS, Android and the web.

The reason Trello works for me, when other apps do not, is the highly visual interface. Trello has a simple bulletin board interface that allows me to put lists and cards on a board just like I would on the wall in my office. I can easily drag my tasks from one list to another, reprioritize items or mark them as done with a quick flick of my finger. Trello also strikes a nice balance between apps that are too simple (Google Keep) and apps that are too complex (Wrike). Because Trello is quick and easy to use, I actually use it—and that’s probably the most important feature in an app of this type.
