- The mobile app is very well written. The time they spent focusing on user experience makes the mobile version as easy to use as the desktop version. (speaking from iOS experience only - can't comment on Android)
- Being able to follow tasks and then be notified when they are updated is very important and Asana does this well.
- Asana doesn't just have to be used for a large company. After using Asana with the non-profit I began using it to manage my own personal projects. It could even be used to keep track of and manage ToDo lists around the house.
- I think Asana could do a better job of touring new users through the functionality. It's not necessarily intuitive for when there is a button to do something or when you simply press Enter. You do see tooltips with hotkeys at the bottom of many pages, so that definitely helps.
- One problem, and I'm not really sure if it's on Asana to fix this, but actually getting people to take the time to use any project management tool can be trying. Folks are already trying to get their work done and have their own pen-and-paper ToDo lists, or keep a running list in their email. So to get people to take the time to use this project management tool might take some convincing. However, I think once they start using it they'll find out how beneficial it can be.
- One feature I guess I haven't seen is the ability to create a private ToDo list that only you can see. Allowing the user to privately add tasks and prioritize them without being open to the whole company/management.

The version of Asana that I'm using is free and works amazingly for my needs. If I were part of a larger organization that was going to pay for a project management solution, I would definitely recommend Asana. It is a very polished and feature-packed product that was designed with a focus on usability and functionality. The only thing that would make me recommend something else would be some unforeseen feature that I don't know I need yet.

Great tool for high-level project management and seeing the big picture. Not so great if you're an organization that's remote and needs to collaborate in the tool/share documents/manage finance process etc. This isn't a full-service project management tool. It's also great for sharing directly with clients, and very easy to do a set up that's simple to adjust in the moment (i.e. during client meetings).

Asana has a task list, Trello doesn't. Asana has different views, Trello only has one. The Asana mobile app is amazingly easy to use. Trello can be confusing for some people. Trello is free for unlimited users, Asana requires payment for more users and integrations. Trello also requires you go premium to get more integrations.
