Booster

Keep your stories up to date

About

Booster for Pivotal Tracker is another free application created by Railsware Team. It is aimed at boosting productivity of other development teams that are actively using Pivotal Tracker.

Booster is a simple and fast Mac OS X client for the popular www.pivotaltracker.com service. Booster features allow its users to concentrate on all the stories they have, get all the information they need, and be always up to date.

Pivotal Booster, from our friends at the Railsware, is a beautiful OS X client. It’s Free, it’s in Beta, it’s easy to install and if you’re a Mac user there’s no reason not to get it.

Involvement

Booster is another great tool that has been primarily created for internal use by our development teams and then shared with other developers on a free basis. Again, the product idea has come naturally out of the needs we had at the time and has been developed by Railswarians from scoping and design to the technical implementation and support.

The team still has lots of ideas and features to implement in future releases, so the product is evolving and growing along with the changing needs of its users.
