What are the best free project management applications for personal use?

After trying several project management tools, I still have not really found the one that suits me. In the best case, I'm looking for a rather complete tool, easy to use, visually beautiful, but also with task status management (in progress, finished, not started ...) other than with labels or tags. I am also looking for a tool available on the web as well as on Android. Free if possible! Thank you :)

    I have a personal workspace in Taskade, and it's free for teams too. Works great for GTD tasks, notes, and very flexible.

    It is hard to tell since I haven't tried the other two, but Trello always worked perfectly for me in terms of both personal and organizational stuff. Simple, yet very powerful! :)

    I always recommend it as the best project management tool. You can integrate it with a lot of services by Atlassian and other providers as well

    It's really flexible, you can really make it your own with all the building blocks it comes with.

    I've tried Trello, Airtable, and Notion extensively. Notion has been the best overall by far - easy to learn, intuitive UI/commands, clean organization, quick responses from support, and many different types of formatting.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    It´s available as Web App, Desktop as well as Mobile App. Organize anything in different switching views - Kanban, List, Table, Mind Map or Calendar. It has a clean UI but with a lot of hidden features. Use custom fields, set labels or upload files. You can change the sorting of your Kanban to show priorities or just rename them. It´s easy to use and offers a great flexibility.

    It's so versatile and can provide you several views to view the same data set in different way. Many customizable views too. Also have blocks to display your data in different ways too. Very useful!

    Airtable with its templates is so versatile and quick to get started, cannot recommend enough. Have tried Trello, Notion, Wrike (this is like JIRA but they have a free plan).

    Not sure I can give an unbiased opinion about NubiDo since I'm the developer... But... It's clean, uncluttered and has just the right feature set for a good personal task manager. There's a free version with all the bells and whistles so you can try it out and see if it's the right fit for your workflow. No android version yet, but it's in the works...

    I'm just going to get right to the point here: How Ora differs from Trello: - looks more modern - multi-select cards to make bulk changes - add colors to column headers - built-in time tracking per card/task - card view looks much better than Trello's, it just feels more like a full project - view your cards as regular tasks in the to-do list view which can be more appropriate for certain projects - upload custom icons for each project - Ora also has separate views for task planning + reports - ability to turn on/off features as modules - task/card relationships (one task can block another) - list actions (triggers) - markdown - code highlighting - several built-in features for developers (sprints, epics, milestones, advanced Git integration, and more) Feel free to comment or DM me if you have any questions about Ora, I am OBSESSED!
