Add support for tasks
It would be nifty if stories could contain tasks that were simple todo lists - i.e. "Spring cleaning" could be divided into "Wipe some dust", "Wash the floor", etc., that could be marked as completed individually.
Your interface is perfect. I think if you swipe down after selecting a specific item, that should be the way to create sub tasks for the item. That is the only remaining item lacking as I review your program against Swipes and Wunderlist. I'm in the process of deciding which of the three to use for my team of exercise planners.

An idea might be to change the stages to show a single line on the Kanban Card. I have Seen this in use on other productivity software
So you have a single card that has multiple lines
Wipe Dust from Floor¤
What is seen on the board is "Buy Soap".
When Buy Soap is Done you open the Card and delete the "Buy Soap" text and "Wipe Dust From Floor" becomes the next item shown on the Board
Now you can create long lists of next actions and work within the standard infastructure without the clutter
Using David Allen
The (next) action needs to be the next physical, visible behavior, without exception, on every open loop.. This is what you should be focusing on..
I would also like to have a 'checklist' facility for a story
This can help in some rather large stories which are placeholders and which will be implemented as tasks
Adding comments would also be useful but may clutter up kanbana as a simple approach
In my personal task board I all most never have the need to break down in tasks in advance. I know by myself that "Spring cleaning" requires "Wash the floor" and "Wipe some dust" before I'm done.
But sometimes my tasks change as I start to work on them because they requires something that I didn't knew to start of with. I started the "spring cleaning" but found out that I ran out of soap. Then i need to buy soap before I can get on. In these cases I often just add it to the description even though this is not perfect.
The tradeoff of adding tasks is that your board becomes more cluttered and your clarity suffers from this.
If I can find a solution where you can add tasks without cluttering the task board with too many details I'll probably add the feature but I haven't found a good way yet.

I think it is related - but I would also like to have support for comments on stories. In a real project, there is often lots of data/information that should be attached to a story besides just a title
