[Tool Review] – Agile Scrum Tool for iPad – Scrum Sprint Planner

[We review Agile tools. Have you seen our Agile tools list?]

People love the iPad. I certainly do. Wasn’t it time that a robust iPad app came out that supports Scrum in a beautiful UI and easy-to-use interface? Well, let not your hearts be troubled. The time has come.

[Enter]: Scrum Sprint ManagerScrum for iPad

We here at Agile Scout were lucky enough to get our hands on it first. Lucky us right? Yep, we popped in the redemption code and downloaded that sucker. Truth be told, it was kind of exciting to be an early adopter! :)

Agile Project Manager (Scrum Sprint Manager) uses all the advantages of Scrum – flexibility and adaptiveness to changing project requirements. Agile Project Manager allows you to plan and track the progress of your development cycle. You can quickly create a detailed plan of the sprint, manage sprint tasks, and view sprint progress in a burn down chart.

What you get at the start is the planning page. What we liked best were the color options, the sprint duration and the planning poker aspect of setting time allocation to tasks or stories:

A quick look see below shows the Sprint page after all is said and done:

Don’t forget your burn down chart:

Simple enough? Options on this baby are limited as of now, but we’ve been told by Dar-Soft that they have big plans for later releases as well as more Pro features.

What’s New In Version 1.5.0

– multiple projects support
– minor bug fix

So what are you waiting for? For $9.99 could this be used for your personal Scrum management?

  1. The tool looks beautiful, but a little over simplistic. Does it allow Points to be used instead of Hours? Does it allow of creating finer grained tasks under the items that move across the Kanban board.

    1. Tool is more for personal use than for enterprise use right now… I understand they are building more features in next iterations.
