Trello is a project management application. It features a bulleted summary of the steps towards completing a project. Basic sheets include four lists: for ideas, tasks, process and finished. The project can be easily shared with your contacts and modified by anyone with access.
The app is completely free, and it’s available for web browsers, iOS, and Android. Work teams, college students, and many others have welcomed the project manager. From now on, they will be able to access a Trello inbox directly from their Gmail accounts.

It works like any other social media. Users create a profile including personal and work information. They can add friends and share projects like Facebook for coders.
