This time of year I usually find myself evaluating how the year has been. This also applies to Kanbana where I’ve been spending some time reading App Store reviews.
I’ve gathered some of my favorite reviews later the post, but to sum it up this sentiment word cloud should give you a pretty good picture of the users opinions.

This made me realised that my own vision of Kanbana is very well aligned with the qualities that the users like which is a satisfying place to be.
When I first started out developing Kanbana I struggled with this for a long time. The users who liked Kanbana liked it for different reasons that I had hoped for and the problem that I wanted to solve for my users wasn’t the problem that I actually solved. Finally the features they requested was not the ones I wanted to build. After simplifying the vision “to help people gain clarity of their life” through the strategy that “managing your life should be fun, easy and fast” seamed to steer the product in a direction that now attracts users that fits into the vision pretty well.
In 2014 I build and released the iPhone version and founded the company “Kanbana ApS” and with all the positive feedback I feel it was with the effort and at the same time a motivating starting point for Kanbana 2015.
Happy new year everyone!
Favorite Kanbana iPhone App Store Reviews 2014
Well-designed, easy to use ★★★★★
by PanthorS – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 24, 2014
This app does exactly what it promises with a simple, intuitive interface. It makes it easy to keep track of projects and can be adapted for personal tasks as well. Recommended!
Ridiculously simple and elegant ★★★★★
by Karen Windon – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 20, 2014
Love this app. I have downloaded so many task management systems which all fall out of favor due to the complexity or lack of an easy visual view. Kanbana meets all the requirements. It’s my post-it replacement, easy to use and very intuitive. Try it!
Great Management Tool ★★★★★
by Madcoderjj – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 18, 2014
I have tried many Apps to try and manage tasks and/or to-dos and not one of them offers such a simple and intuitive interface to do so. I really love the simplicity and speed in which I can add the things that I want to keep track of and move them through to a completed state. Keep up the great work!
Enjoy Using This App ★★★★★
by greyseal – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 18, 2014
I have enjoyed using this app to help organize my tasks. It is very responsive and quick to use, with a nice interface. I would recommend this app to anyone in the market for a task manager that is easy to understand and use. I am a mom who is primarily coordinating activities for my children as well as homeschooling scheduling, but I know this has a lot of potential for business users as well. In my former life as a mortgage loan underwriter I would have found this very beneficial. Thanks!
Easy to use ★★★★★
by asr749 – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 18, 2014
Unlike so many task management apps, this is easy and quick to use. No unnecessary categorisation, just plain kanban. Rename, move and delete panes as you need to. Highly recommended as a way of making kanban work for you.
Sorts the forest for the trees ★★★★★
by 10meghalfduplex – Version – 1.1.2 – Dec 18, 2014
Very good for helping you decide what you will and more importantly what you won’t spend an available slot of time from, helps you prioritise tasks and stay focus on the ones you have decided to spend time on… recommended!

Favorite Kanbana iPad App Store Reviews 2014
by MC6898 – Version – 1.5.2 – Dec 20, 2014
Very nice! Allows me to organize and manage my to do list in a very different way. Very clean interface and easy to use. Can easily create new columns and tasks, and it’s easy to move the columns and tasks around. I like the ability to organize my tasks by color according to category an
Nice app ★★★★
by SteveScholey – Version – 1.5.2 – Dec 19, 2014
I’ve been a long time Trello user and only tried this app because I read a rave review. I’m glad I did because I haven’t been disappointed. I really like the simple interface and the ability to zoom out on the iPad to see everything that is going on is really useful. Now that it syncs across desktop, iPad & iPhone it’s a keeper for me.
Simply, the best!!!! ★★★★★
by Hannah Shigeta – Version – 1.5.1 – Nov 22, 2014
I can’t believe there are much less reviews than I expected. The best todo, note, and multitask app ever!!!
For Visual Thinkers ★★★★★
by WeymsSJ – Version – 1.4.0 – Oct 1, 2014
I am a very visual person. I have used a lot of coloured stickies and coloured index cards to plan out my many projects. I love the kanbana app for iPhone as this allows me to do my planning on the go. And I can review all the tasks that need to be done anytime and anywhere. The best app so far for intuitive planning!
Simple, Fast, Elegant Task Management ★★★★★
by gedroberts – Version – 1.4.0 – Sep 29, 2014
I have been using Kanbana for a while now and although I have used other task management apps, I keep coming back to Kanbana. For me task management has to be fast and intuitive. Capture is very important for me and now the iPhone version is out, I finally have a really easy way to capture tasks when I am out and about. The simple and elegant interface gives you just what you need and no more. And the voice dictation means you can actually speak your new task and it captures it in text. Great app, I used it across all my devices so I am always on top of what I need to be doing.
Better than Trello ★★★★
by Martin’s opinion – Version – 1.4.0 – Sep 30, 2014
I like the clean style of Kanbana. What I like most is the fact that labels are true labels and not just tags, so the comlete note appears in one solid color of choice.
Love this app ★★★★★
by Disadd – Version – 1.4.0 – Sep 30, 2014
I have been using this app for awhile now and love it. I’ve set it with “braindump” (everything that needs to get done) “doing” (three tasks from the braindump) “awaiting” (tasks I have to wait for a response from a 3rd party) and “done”. When all my tasks are done it feels like candy for the brain
