I have enabled 3 power ups on a team board. I can see and activate all three power ups on my computer however when I look at my mobile or/and tablet device I can only see one power up activated? Even after I sync up. 

Is this a way to fix this?

Hi @Bret Lynch 

On mobile, only certain PUps show, normally those that are native, e.g. Calendar & Custom fields etc.

3rd Party PUps generally don't show on mobile, they will show on Chrome and the Windows & Mac apps, but won't show on the iOS or Android apps.

If you need to get access to your PUps on mobile, all hope is not lost!

If you use Chrome on your mobile, you can use that to see and interact with all the PowerUps you have enabled on your board. It's not perfect, but it is a suitable workaround. I love the new card covers, which can't be changed or accessed on the iOS app, I also love using the 'Streaks' PowerUp, which doesn't show on the iOS version. I make all the alterations that I can on the native app, then if I need something else, I hop onto Chrome and do the rest there.

It's not a great solution, but it IS a solution that will give you the functionality on mobile that you're looking for!

So often, when there is a mobile app, we completely forget that actually we can access the same information on Chrome on our phones and that as we're launching the web version, we will have access to everything that we would have if we were sitting at our computers.

I'm guilty of that! Finding that I want to do something on a native app, and can't, and completely forgetting that it's something that can be achieved on Chrome often escapes me! So while this is a work-around, it's an effective one!

Hope that helps!

Unfortunately Trello in Chrome on mobile is far from usable.

The upper 40% of the screen is covered by badly designed buttons.

Just look at the top bar. It is slick and occupies fixed space. Why can't the buttons below that bar be placed nicely? 


A lot can actually be solved with very minimal effort. Let's look at the styling of these buttons below the top bar one by one:

1. Board - text unnecessary. only icon is sufficient. dropdown arrow also not needed.

2. (Board Name) - necessary

3. Star - necessary, takes appropriate space.

4. (Team name along with pricing plan information) - useless information. should be in overflow menu.

5. Privacy - only icon sufficient. no text needed. text can come in the menu when icon is clicked.

6,7. Member thumbnails & invite button- what's the point of cramming this on a mobile phone? best to have a single icon for a member management screen where a list of members and invitations can happen.

8. Butler with its tips - useless in the top bar. can be a part of overflow.

9. Show Menu - seriously? a simple ellipsis is more than enough.


I wrote a powerup for Trello and THEN discovered that they don't work on Android. Thanks to the documentation.  Had to resort to Trello on Chrome on Android. But in the current scenario, it is unusable. I can't ask my customers to look at such a badly designed screen. It looks unprofessional and is not up to Trello standards.

Another thing. Tried to add Trello in Chrome, to home screen.

If it had the appropriate PWA tags, it'd at least hide the address bar of the browser.

But no. That does not work either.

A mockup to support what I'm trying to say.
