Taskboard for Reminders Free

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Taskboard is inspired by the Kanban, Scrum and Agile management methodologies. It provides a simple way to display and organize your reminders on a task board.
Taskboard aims to increase your productivity by applying the principles of Kanban—a scheduling system based on principles that include workflow visualization and limiting of the number of items that are work-in-progress.
◆◆◆ Taskboard features include ◆◆◆
◆ Create new task board
Create a new empty four-column task board by clicking the plus button in the Boards list. This will generate a new board and an associated reminders list.
◆ Create new tasks
New tasks can be created directly on the board by tapping the New Task button. These new tasks will also appear in the Reminders app on the iPad and other devices connected to iCloud if enabled in iOS settings.
◆ Drag and drop
Drag and drop your reminders between columns. Placement is flexible and not locked into hard fixed positions.
◆ Change the pin color
Each reminder has an associated pin color. The color can be changed by tapping on the pin. The app will remember the latest color you select and will use that color for any new reminders created on the board. Pins can also be hidden by tapping until the pin disappears.
◆ Mark reminders complete
Reminders are marked complete when placed in the last column.
◆ Remove tasks
Tasks can be removed by dragging to the rubbish bin.
◆ Change board and column titles
The board title and column titles are configurable.
◆ Display existing reminders
Existing reminders are displayed on boards by selecting an existing reminders list. Reminders are imported onto a new board by placing them in the Backlog column. Any existing reminders that are completed are placed in the Completed column. The reminders can be moved between columns as required.
◆ iOS Reminders integration
Taskboard integrates with iOS Reminders by utilizing some of the latest features made available in iOS 6.
Note: This app requires access to Reminders.

has some rough edges
Update: rediscovered this app and started using it to track project tasks at work. There have been some great improvements and it is working great. I especially like the colored 'pins' for the tasks, I use that as an easy way to keep track of importance.
It is much easier to use then I remember and is one of my go to apps.
had to turn on reminders to use it, not sure why since there is no due dates or time limit setting that I saw. Can create several boards, which is cool, but can't set the names, or edit the names, and can't delete boards you didn't mean to create in the first place.
With some enhancements, this could be a decent task board app, even for someone who is managing their own tasks on their own.
Good Start for Individuals
This is a good start for individual Kanban. It offers a unique way to show sub-boards on a main Kanban board. It is far less cluttered than the range of professional Scrum or Kanban apps, it allows you to work off-line (which almost none of the pro-apps allow), and it is somewhat more flexible than a one-person Kanban app that is probably its best comparative competitor.
I wish that Taskboard would …
* Integrate directly with true task management apps (Things or Omnifocus).
* Focus more on content presentation in line with the new OS7 UI paradigm.
The former feature would make Taskboard a killer-app for top-level management of tasks in the companion professional apps, and the latter feature would make Taskboard a bit easier to use all around.
Don't make a mistake setting it up (e. g., your reminders are turned off), because even after you correct the problem, it will give you a dead screen forever: there's no way to fix it and get back in. And I don't want to give it access to my reminders, I want to keep them separate.
