Found a new APM Tool

Out browsing some mailing list today and came across this really nice Agile Project Management tool, Acunote.

What is Acunote…

Acunote is an Agile project management tool.
It is built on the innovative lightweight Scrum process and is focused on the day-to-day steps needed to achieve the goal.

They did a really nice job, reminds me of BaseCamp. It supports SVN, Code Inspection on check in and best of all it is free for a team of 5 developers. It also can import the list of bugs from Bugzilla, Mantis, Trac and JIRA.

Let me put this out there that I haven’t used this product on a project yet.  I am just letting you know my initial impression.  Anyone else used it yet?

  1. Ooo, I’m interested. I’ll definitely be giving this a test in the next couple of months.

  2. That looks awesome. I’m currently using Assembla for one of my side-projects and it has a lot of cool features, but some of them are kind-of half-baked. This looks like it could integrate well with the repository from assembly (or google code).

    Would be nice to have a downloadable version that I could host internally and connect to TFS, then I could try and get my current client on-board.

    James Avery pointed me to Unfuddle the other day too which looks like a good replacement for my current Basecamp/SVNRepository set up I use for side projects.

  4. I started using Acunote about 5 months ago and really like it. They have added a bunch of features over the last couple of months and have made it much more user friendly.

    I guess I should post about these things when I find them more often. I assume too much and omit it =)

    I’ve not heard of Acunote, but I’ll check it out. What I use now for Scrum and bugtracking is Wrike – It works really cool with screenshots and emails. That’s what I love about it.
