Matt one of the co-founders here. While it’s true that currently there is little in the way of features to distinguish Stack from Trello, we are working to address that. We have a number of things we are rolling that will hopefully make Stack a compelling proposition even for die-hard Trello fans. Here’s a short list of some things on the horizon:
- team support/management
- project templates
- version control integration
- time tracking
- support for task dependencies
- task estimation / scheduling
Happy to answer any other questions you might have.
How is this different/better than Trello?
Just came here to say the same thing, it's just a prettier version of Trello,
Which brings to the table that Trello need urgently to update its design, it really functional but very ugly too.
I agree that Trello is not on the prettiest side of things, but to call it very ugly is a bit of an overreaction. Some design updates are needed, but I don't think they're losing customers because of that.
Especially if you consider how feature-rich it is and the myriad of devices it supports.
I'd say the opposite, Trello is designed very well. We've been using it for about 3 years already and never had any issues.
It's simple, fast and streamlined. It's visual design accompanies it's functionality and never puts trendy styles over actual experience. I wish more products followed the same design ideology.
Completely agree, I use it everyday too, it's functional and works perfectly, but I don't like the style at all, those are 2 very different things, but you are right, more products should be more functional than just stylish.
