    • trello does not have the features to manage workflow in nearly the same capacity. It's fine for small projects and teams, but I can't see who's working on what, what the status of a task or story is, view burn down charts or any of the other functionality I would want for a large-scale project.

JIRA Comments

Try Ciro

Comment by marcweiner
about JIRA Jul 2016

I much prefer Ciro http://ciroapp.com to to JIRA. It's lightweight and fast, and doesn't get in my way. I really like how it tracks notifications, so you know that when you comment on a task, or mention another user, they will see it and it won't get lost. They're continuing to build features, so eventually it will eclipse JIRA in terms of features.

JIRA is good but not for every kind of team

Comment by ssbarnea
about JIRA Jun 2011

JIRA is very complex system and unless you have serious development work with multiple Agile teams, it may be too much for you to handle.
