Codetree seems to have enough differentiation to make it worth paying for. The multiple repo feature is a big one, as are the filters and different viewing formats (Kanban / List). I wonder if Github built a repo-dependency on the Projects. Who the hell puts an entire multiple-project app in one repo? Not me. The $9 Solo plan is a no-brainer if you like what it does.
I use Trello to organise these things. The One Unmissable Feature (for me) is frictionless mobile access - I often have ideas when I’m out on walkabout. Being able to whip out the phone and get those thoughts into that board/list/whatever with minimal friction before the idea disappears back into my brain-ether is vital. The steps to do this in the Trello iPhone app are…
- Unlock the phone
- Open the Trello App
- Tap the list name
- Tap “Add a card” (the 1st list is my braindump dropbox)
- Dump contents of brain.
or alternatively, when the phone is locked, go to the iPhone notifications screen,
- Tap Trello
- Tap Card
- Unlock the phone (fingerprint)
- fill in the card
- pick a board
done That’s how easy it has to be. Frictionless.
