Looks like a "clunkier" version of Trello.

@hustlinhack The product name already implies clunky - "Microsoft" Planner
Kyle McDonald@hustlinhack · Front End Developer
@kewlking so true :P
Malone Hedges@malonehedges
@hustlinhack made by Microsoft! I think these tools are meant to appeal to people who aren't comfortable going outside of their known tech brands.
Andrew Gale@andrewgale · Founder
@hustlinhack I think it looks way cleaner and more useful than Trello!
Kyle McDonald@hustlinhack · Front End Developer
@andrewgale have to use office 365 to use it though. No thanks.

I've been playing with it for a week. I'm a heavy ASANA user, but we've started to use O365 at work and if this integrates well, it could be useful. So far, I'm not super impressed. Limited features and the connection to OneDrive, OneNote etc is clunky. Like many MS things, it seems like groups up in Redmond don't talk to each other to create a seamless user experience. I'll keep poking at it..

@deanbrady "I'm not super impressed".. I figured as much. All I saw was a bunch of user experience improvement without real improvements adding value to a planner.

Asana and Trello must have millions of users, but if Microsoft approaches the implementations correctly they could pretty quickly surpass that.

@v3ss0n businesses are used to paying Microsoft lots of money
Phyo Arkar Lwin@v3ss0n · Founder of
@nivo0o0 but i still think they should make it free if they want to compete trello. and may be installable version of enterprise.

@v3ss0n @nivo0o0 If its bundled as part of O365, it will be as good as free because businesses already pay for O365. It increases the value prop for O365 package.
