What You Can Do Offline

Trello has recently launched its latest iOS and Android apps that support offline mode. This means that users can continue to work and manage their projects without a wireless network connection. There are many instances that people need to open their app to check their board or to create a card even when outside any network connectivity. With this new offline mode, users can simply set their smartphones into airplane mode and just do everything as usual.

Even without wireless connection, users will be able to create boards to start new projects. They can also arrange their boards and rearrange workflows. When they think of an idea, they can add a card even when on the go. Moreover, they can assign members to cards, and add descriptions, labels or checklists. Users can also post comments and feedback, complete with emojis and all. While on a trip somewhere, they can use their phone’s camera, take a photo and add it to a card. The app will save whatever changes made while offline. As soon as the device gets back online, all changes will be synced, and every work item will be updated.
