Trello, the Atlassian-owned company that makes the popular task management app just made a new version available for iOS. The app, which lets you keep organize your entire task hasn’t been useful this whole time if you have a spotty internet connection. That has changed with the newest iOS update; Trello can work offline now.
“Whether you’re home, on a plane, in a tunnel or in the middle of nowhere, you can use Trello without worrying if you’re connected,” Trello wrote in its iOS release notes. “Your work will automatically sync when you are back online.”
In 2016, Trello offered a beta version of offline support for both iOS and Android. However, a few of the Trello users could use that version. From now on all the iOS users will be benefitted by that offline feature. The Android version is still in beta, and not sure when will be available.
So, what you can do with this new iOS update? You can add or remove new cards, move cards from one board to another, even add details when you’re offline. The offline mode also lets you edit card details, including members and the labels. You’ll be able to notice which cards need to be synced with some arrows pointing in a circle. The cards will automatically be synced when you’re online. However, the changes in offline mode won’t be seen by other members, which may create a problem if you’re working in a team.
Offline mode is something that has been in high demand for years now. There are a bunch of Google apps that boast this offline feature; even Netflix now offers its users to download for offline viewing. Trello is the newest to join the party. So, from now on, if you’re looking for an excuse for not organizing your task, just don’t say you’re offline.
