Description

PicoScrum is a simple yet powerful task management application that helps users focus on their most important, near-term goals. Users can create projects containing any number of tasks, which can be estimated and prioritized. PicoScrum automatically groups these tasks into small blocks of time called Sprints. As work is completed, information including progress charts and predicted end dates help users make informed decisions necessary to meet their goals.

Here's how it works:

* Create Projects to organize your Tasks.

You can create any number of Projects, and each one defines the size and duration of Sprints created within the Project.

* Create Tasks within each Project.

You can create any number of Tasks. Each Task begins with an initial estimate, and Tasks are automatically organized into Sprints based on how much work a Sprint can hold. Tasks can also be prioritized by simple drag and drop operations.

* Start Sprinting.

Each Project can have one active Sprint at a time. You can start a Sprint whenever you are ready, and update each Task as you perform work against it. When finished, complete the Sprint to move on to the next one.

* Check Your Progress.

Each Sprint lets you know how many days you have left to complete the Sprint work, and how far along you are. You can see a visual indication of your progress by looking at the Burndown Chart for your active Sprint. PicoScrum also shows you the Projected end date for your entire Project based on past performance, as well as how much works remains and much more.

PicoScrum gives you a wide range of clearly presented information that will help you determine whether or not you are on target to meet your goals. Based on this information, you can adjust your plans and change your Sprint durations and/or sizes accordingly.

PicoScrum is ideal for organizing related sets of tasks into Projects. Some examples are:

+ Developing a software application.

+ Renovating your kitchen.

+ Landscaping your yard.

+ Organizing a school memory book for the PTO.

+ School projects.

If you're looking to track sets of unrelated tasks (ie: "Get a haircut", "Pick up some groceries", "Get stamps at the Post Office"), there are many very good "To-Do List" applications that may be a better fit for you.

What's New in Version 1.3

This update brings simple visual indicators of Project and Sprint status as well as several minor enhancements and fixes.

Features:

* Project Status Icons

Each Project now has an icon indicating its general status.
- Blue Square: No Active Sprint
- Green Circle: Has Active Sprint
- Yellow Triangle: Active Sprint is falling behind
- Red Diamond: Active Sprint is past end date and incomplete

* Project Details Text

Each Project now has a configurable text field that shows one of the following pieces of information:
- Estimated End Date
- Start Date
- Average Velocity
- Work Remaining

* Burndown Trend Line
- Predicts future status based on past performance
- Helps determine whether or not you are on schedule

* Sprint Header shows progress by color
- Green: Active and on schedule
- Yellow: Active and falling behind
- Red: Active and past end date with work remaining
- Blue: Unstarted
- Grey: Completed

* Improved Statistics Calculations
- Empty Completed Sprints can be ignored (configurable)
- Estimated Velocity takes into consideration varying Sprint Lengths from past Sprints
- Estimated Velocity based on actual time passed in Sprints, rather than initial Sprint length

* Visual Updates
- Sprint Headers are better looking and more functional (semi-transparent)
- Added Icons for Project and Task insertion
- Added Icons for the Backlog and Sprint Burndown Charts

* Fixes
- Fixed layout issues in the Help section.
- Deleting a Task now properly recreates Sprints.
- Empty Sprints are no longer created after starting a Sprint.

Most people on our team have iPhones and like this app but we would like the ability to add team members and allow them to update progress. I'm looking forward to the upcoming updates.

Needs some work

:
This is a decent app although doesn't really follow SCRUM methodology. Can't add multiple tasks to a single sprint. Let me know when you update as I would definitely like to try it again
