2 Kanban Tool

Very easy to get started with.. I share my boards with the kids, they've never been so keen on housework before. Also, allows me to stop worrying about my due dates and all my important stuff is kept in one place. Great..

If you are new with this kind of software, I recommend Kanban tool. It doesn't require any special skills or anything. It's simple tool that makes your work more organized, not making it harder by fancy interfaces and tools. Easy and fast to use, I really recommend it.

It has a very intuitive and clear interface. Allows you to use it for personal and work purposes. It's free for individual users, but the prices for companies are very attractive. Time tracking option is a very nice addition.

Kanban Tool is very easy to use. The company I work for has implemented it a couple of months ago and I'm still impressed how well it works!

3 KanbanPad

KanbanPad is probably the simplest tool in the world. That is why it is so useful! It does not offer too many advanced features, but it's for personal use is very nice.

4 Kanbanize

Love the Actionable Agile integration for really powerful analytics

The most powerful Kanban software, ever!

The best tool ever!

Kanbannize - well-designed, with a long list of features, not necessarily useful for personal use.

5 Lino

Lino is easy to use application that looks like a cork board. For those who love to play with colors is perfect. You can also create your own layout of your pictures and videos.

6 Trello

I was using Trello for my private life, but when it comes to business it is not enough. That's why I've started using Kanbanery for my freelancer work - justa

Trello aim is allow collaborative project management. However, it can be used as a personal time management solution (not quite as Personal Kanban board). The webapp's boards, cards, checklists, labels, and other features make it easy to view and manage your tasks, much as you would use index cards on a cork board.

7 Virtual Kanban

Virtual Kanban is an online boards that you an use both, online and offline. It has a simple design, not many features. If you need a tool just to keep your tasks and do not forget about them - this is enough.

This is one of those tools that make you wonder how come they've not been around for years... Personal Kanban direclty in your inbox renders all external todo apps useless. Highly recommended.

"Kanban, Inbox Zero and Getting Things Done (GTD) directly in my inbox. The first time in my life to be able to manage 3 inboxes at a time, reaching the Inbox Zero dream"

For the first time in my life I am able to manage 3 different email inboxes reaching the Inbox Zero dream. The best personal kanban tool/application for Gmail and Outlook. - MilaCh

9 SmartQ

SmarQ is nicely designed app, fairly simple to use. The thing I like about this tool is a email Assistant (deadlines auto-reminder) and ticket images cover. SmartQ more suited for teams than individual users.

The Contenders

11 LeanKit

LeanKit is online whiteboard tool. Probably it is more useful for teams than individuals. Application is based on the principles of Kanban, a Lean/Agile methodology. Little too complicated.

Basic Edition - FREE - patritia_bure

12 KanbanFlow

I have been using it for years to track my commitments as software developer, I can easily recommend it. Integrated pomodoro timer is very useful for keeping you focused on task at hand, while still making sure I get enough rest.

KanbanFlow is quite similar to Kanban Tool, however I don't like its design. A cool thing inside this application is certainly is pomodoro time.

5$ per user/ per month - patritia_bure

KanbanFlow is amazing! I use it to manage my work and personal to-dos. The pomodoro timer is extremely useful, as well as all the built-in time tracking. I would definitely recommend this!

13 Kanbanchi

This where I started with kanban and I keep coming back to this application - because it was an easy learning curve and they are always improving it and although not got all the features I would like, it works.

Full featured Chrome plugin. Free and paid versions.
