The Agile Tools Mobile App | Estimate story sizes and manage time - all with one app on your phone, created by Agile experts.
The Agile Tools mobile app allows you to use some of the most handy Agile tools, straight from your phone. Quickly estimate story sizes with the Planning poker or the t-shirt sizing feature, and effectively manage your time through the app’s features. All instructions on how to use the features are included, so there’s nothing to worry about. Moreover, you can keep in touch with Radtac thanks to the embedded website browser.
The Planning poker feature helps teams determine story points that provide relative size estimates for stories. By using this technique, you can collectively agree on a relative effort required by the team to get a story to ‘done’ status.
The feature includes all necessary cards, such as different sizes, questions card, break card and more. Planning Poker typically uses a relative sizing based partly on a Fibonacci sequence, as this describes fine- and coarse-grained differences between numbers. Find out more about this technique in the Agile Foundations book from Radtac.

You can also estimate story sizes by using the app’s t-shirt sizing feature. Use the sizes (S, M, L etc.) to relatively estimate the effort required to get a story to the ‘done’ stage.
Manage your time effectively with help of the embedded Pomodoro timer. App features include authentic sounds, shaking the phone to wind the timer, and background notifications.
What is the Pomodoro technique? “The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals separated by short breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros, after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student.
Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design, the method has been adopted in pair programming contexts.” (Wikipedia)
