[We review Agile tools. Have you seen our Agile tools list?]
There are some really great kanban tools out there. Some you pay for, some are free. People say that “you get what you pay for…” Most of the time, this is very true. Sometimes… you might just be surprised at what you can get for free.
[Enter]: KanbanPad – Absolutely free kanban tool, lightweight and simple
To get started, just enter your email address into the field and get to it. You’ll be greeted with a simple interface:
Add your first task and boom goes the dynamite. You’re off and running. If you’d like to register your account and get some more flexibility with your app, you’ll get access to some more fun settings, like:
- API settings
- Adding additional steps in your process
- Access permissions
And there you go. Above is what you’ll see as you fill out some more stories.
Be aware that you’ll need to press the VERY SMALL play button on each card to put it into an “IN-PROGRESS” state. Didn’t know that even existed until I clicked around a bit.
Click around even more and you’ll find that you can fill out the cards with just a little bit more information.
And … that’s about it.
So what are we talking about?
KanbanPad is a lightweight, free, kanban app. Simple as that. But it is a fine experience after all.
- Multiple teams? Make a new board.
- Tons of features? Not really.
- Simple and elegant UI? Yes.
- Will they be free forever? Yes, but they’ll be creating a paid version with more features in the future.
