Todoist is taking on Trello with their new Boards organizational app

Boards is the latest project from the team at Todoist, and it is a stand-alone Windows 10 app that puts your tasks on a board instead of a list. If you've ever seen or used Trello, the task management app that uses a card-based interface, this will look very familiar to you.

While looking at better ways to manage tasks, the Todoist team wanted to try stripping down some of the features, changing the appearance and seeing how it would all work out.

The team describes it as:

"If you think about Boards, it's essentially a stripped-down version of the Todoist app with very specific UI pieces swapped for something different. However, the basics stay the same: synchronizing with servers, storing data locally, natural date parsing, etc. As we're building the Todoist for Windows 10 app, we're trying to adhere to certain decisions about how the app is structured internally in order to create a certain architecture.

By decoupling elements of its service, Todoist was able to get Boards up and running quickly. The team is very interested in user feedback to help improve the new service, so be sure to check it out and let them know what you think.
