I am researching on scrum masters latest practices. Please share your preferred tool of choice.

That's quite a broad question. Tools for what purpose?

Rather than list a load of tools, perhaps it's better to understand the problems people are trying to solve, and why they feel a tool is the most appropriate option.

Eyes and ears.

A wise Scrum Master once told me "A fool with a tool is still a fool".   A stated above, understand first what problem you'd like to solve.

In my org we use JIRA to keep a list of backlog items. To foster communication, we use legs, mouths, and a few communicators.

As Olivier mentioned, eyes and ears.

“Eyes and ears” would indeed be our preferred tools of choice, but they are not necessarily the most popular. I’d suggest that any research you do considers the reasons for that.

I've just started using VersionOne and see that it has enough tools for my need: product backlog, sprint backlog, storyboard, taskboard, burndown char,... Feel satisfy with it. Tried Trello but didnt like.

Similarly, I'm looking at tools to help me present the charts and dashboards that we learned in Agile books.  We use JIRA and Confluence in office, and some groups use Trello.  JIRA can display burndown charts and CFDs, but it's still not what I needed ..... hard to explain.  Now evaluating Smartsheet due to some work overlap with Waterfall projects.

JIRA is pretty widely used. Provides mechanisms to visualize Product backlog items, Sprint backlog items, sub tasks, Burndown charts, etc. And in sprint to see Todo, InProgress and Done items.
