I'm very OCD, so my current Personal & Work setup is using Apple Reminders & for my product management I use a combo of Apple Notes with apple Reminders.

I've wanted to switch my work/product management to Trello or Meistertask. But very OCD about having another app being used. I really like the Apple ecosystem and neither app allows you to share into Notes or Reminders directly.

Would it be worth the switch, I feel Meistertask over Trello btw because of the features and look. Is there a batter way in Apple ecosystem to do my work/product management?

Just want some advice on this.

EDIT: So currently for my work projects, which is that I run an online TV Network. So I currently put all my projects using Checklists or whatever in Apple Notes. Then I share that note to Apple Reminders so I have it on my To-Do list. That is my current Project Management. And I share it to others if I need to but some people don't use the Apple ecosystem. But again I'm very OCD and love the Apple ecosystem, I don't like having extra apps if they don't need to be used.

You don't provide any specifics as to why you want to switch to Trello or Meistertask so it is impossible for anyone to suggest how to modify your Apple-based workflows to be "better".

Since you are working when other folk you HAVE to get out of this 'Must be Apple' mindset. That mentality will cause friction with the rest of your team.

Tools like Trello can be great for team planning since they use a Kanban to show everyone where each task is.

Sadly it's still going to be hard suggesting what you should do because you've still provided very very little information as to what you need.

And, to be honest, here is not the place either. only you and your team can truly know what to use. There's a whole heap of cloud solutions out there.

Some Kanban based (Trello, KanbanFlow), some hybrid (MeisterTask), some project based (Asana, Basecamp), some more task orientated (Microsoft ToDo, TockTock) and some that defy description (Notion).

All you can do is open up your mind outside of Apple and explore them.

Took me a year flitting between multiple platforms before I settled on a Trello\Slack\Zapier\Hubstaff\MicrosiftvToado\Azure Dev Ops hybrid solution.

Not one solution worked for me. I needed multiple to create a minimal friction environment.
