Kanbana - App Review

'Kanbana is a simple graphical task board that helps you visualise and optimise your personal workflow'; this is what the developers promise.

From Wikipedia, the definition of Kanban is "(literally signboard or billboard in Japanese) is a scheduling system for lean manufacturing and just-in-time manufacturing."

For the moment, we'll view it as a to-do system that is visual.

Now for the ACIDS test:

To learn to use the App in double quick time, spend under 2 minutes watching this Video.

The App comes pre configured with columns titled: Todo in the Future, Todo This Week, Todo Today, Evaluate & Refine, and Completed. You can add to these columns by tapping and holding outside the right-hand edge and entering your own, which can then be easily dragged into the appropriate place.

To enter a Todo, simply press and hold anywhere and type your item then choose a colour; this can then be dragged to the appropriate column (unless of course you entered it in the required column in the first place).

You can then reorder and edit each item.

The basic App is free, if you want Cloud data sync (for multiple devices), this costs $9, and the fully-featured version is $3 per month.

As I've said many times, a to-do system is essential to getting things done. If you haven't got one that works well for you then, take a look at Kanbana; it's different.

This is an extremely simple App to use.

This is a standalone App, unless you upgrade and then you can access your data from multiple iOS devices, as well as a PC.

ACIDS Test Rating:

A to-do list system that's good enough for Toyota.
