We’re always thrilled to see people build cool things with our API, but we’re even more excited when these original apps are refined, improved, and polished even further to meet customer needs.
That’s exactly what Railsware has done with their latest major upgrade to their desktop app PivotalBooster.
“We are glad to announce you a major release of PivotalBooster version 1.1.0.beta.
With its new and enhanced features, working with your projects, tasks and stories will become even more convenient and flexible. For example, now it is much easier to create a new story or update an existing one in our absolutely new story detail view. Plus, the new drag-and-drop attachment feature provides you with a faster way of adding attachments. And, if you are managing several projects at once, the new filtering by the project feature is just right for you. That’s not all that new PivotalBooster has to offer to you.”
Please read Sergey Korolev’s full blog post to get the full list of new features and keyboard shortcuts for PivotalBooster.
Save the date.
If you live in or plan to be near any of these locations on those dates we’d love to hang out at the watering hole and talk Tracker with you.
We look forward to meeting you – the Tracker team!
The good folks at Railsware do it again. A little while back they released a Mac OSX client called PivotalBooster and just today – they released a very slick Pivotal Tracker Chrome extension called PiRo.
It’s a multi-login/multi-story/multi-project gem (I mean that in the sparkly sense) that lets you do all these things from within the same window. In other words a multipass for Tracker (You know – Milla/the Fifth Element “Leeloo Dallas mul-ti-pass”…).
It also looks great. Give it a shot and if you like it – be a good Tracker citizen and vote up our friends with your stars!
Is it a sign of the times that the cloud-based tools that allow us to work together better now need a tool of their own to work together better? A meta betta togetha tool in other words.
Sounds ironic, but it’s a fact that we struggle to manage the multiple communication streams we’re connected to – we’re running out of sandbags to contain the overflow.
For those of you that have Pivotal Tracker as one of your streams, we have many friends in the community that are seeking to help folks stay on top of and act upon all that valuable info in these multiple streams. One pond that all your streams feed into if you will. Not wishing to play favorites, here are some of our more recent partners in alphabetical order.
Try them out and please tell us what you think.
all your business information from various cloud services together in one place.
A workspace that makes your web-based productivity and collaboration apps work together.
All your project updates in one beautiful feed, and works with many popular project management systems.

Listen to your applications and streams – curate and share what matters.
Happy Valentine’s Day from the Tracker Team!
In the spirit of this pop-western-religious-hallmark-day we’re going to indulge in a public display of beta affection.
Pivotal Booster, from our friends at the Railsware Company, 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.
Two features we’d like to call out that make this a must have:
1) My Stories View… across all projects. Very handy… we like it.
2) Toggle between stories assigned to me and stories requested by me. Great for the coder… and the manager too.
Railsware promises even more functionality in the next month or two. Here’s a sneak peek we’ve obtained exclusively for the Tracker faithful.
Stay tuned to this blog – We’ll be highlighting more apps from the Tracker ecosystem in the near future.
