Trello users can now access the project management tool directly from their desktop after the launch of native Windows and Mac apps.
The software had previously been browser-based only, meaning that Trello boards could easily get lost amid a multitude of browser tabs. The company said in a blog post that the desktop app should make the software simpler to use, since Trello has added a navigation sidebar to help keep track of boards in a similar fashion to channels on collaboration tools such as Slack.
Other features include “more granular” keyboard shortcuts and desktop notifications. Those using the latest Mac Book Pro laptops will also be able to open boards and create new cards from the Mac’s Touch Bar.
