Unlike other kanban softwares that have 'a bit of everything' and are too cumbersome to use, the best Trello alternatives come with none of the fluff and all the powerful capabilities you need to build quality software together.
To put it gently, Trello is great if you want to move kanban cards from one column to another. When you need more capabilities to power your software development, you need a Trello alternative that's simple, but has all the powerful capabilities to build software together!
Bend your Trello alternative to fit your team irrespective of if you follow kanban or scrum methodology.
Create kanban boards for specific teams to track progress and manage workload. Or switch and create a scrum board. Whatever process your team follows, your project management tool should adapt to it effortlessly.
Planning features on a kanban board is hard. You need a an interface that makes it easy to quickly capture user stories, tasks, bugs, and enhancements. That way you can easily plan and spec how each feature should behave quickly and track it's progress on the kanban board.
Don't 'power-up' for capabilities that should come out of the box. An alternative to Trello should come with built-in types, estimation, prioritization, and due dates, and more! This way, you can plan features easily and execute effectively.
View your sprint plan, see how many estimation points are remaining, and track its progress either as a list or on a scrum board.
Take better decisions backed by data. Track your team's progress and remove roadblocks with the help of burndown and burnup charts, cumulative reports, and activity feeds.

A more intuitive app than JIRA. [Zepel] feels more SCRUM than alternatives. Also it feels very lightweight, in the sense that it could be fun to do work with this app.

While I was looking for a Jira alternative I stumbled upon Zepel.io which not only is a note worthy alternative but much much more.
