Agile Project Manager is a software tool for project management which uses all advantages of Agile methodology known as Scrum - flexibility and adaptiveness to changing project requirements.
The Agile Project Manager allows you to plan and track the progress of your development cycle on your iPad during multiple sprints. This gives you the possibility to be always intact with your team and project stakeholders.
With Agile Project Manager you can quickly create a detailed plan of the sprint and then manage the sprint tasks by all canons of the Scrum methodology rules. All stages of the project creating and management process are placed on separate tabs for your convenience.
The sprint progress is displayed in a form of burn down chart, which gives the clear visual picture of the current state of sprint to project stakeholders. Also you can send automatically generated sprint report at any time by mail.
Each sprint can be saved at any time as a separate project file, so you can manage multiple projects with Agile Project Manager. This feature also allows you to have a substitute of common project backlog in a form of a separate project file.
Agile Project Manager provides an enhanced support of Dropbox synchronization. You can save projects in Dropbox folders to prevent data losses which cause additional risks in your project. As the main purpose of Dropbox service is convenient joint work with documents, you can share Agile Project Manager documents via Dropbox to quickly inform all team members and project stakeholders about any changes, that is one of the core points of Agile methodology.
The tool is created mostly for Scrum masters, but it also can be used by all persons are involved in the project, as the core of Scrum is knowledge about the current state of development process.

What's New in Version 1.8.0
- Agile Project Manager has been updated to support the new iPad with Retina display
- Now you can set custom Sprint Length and Task Duration
- Some bug fixes
Aside from the apps high cost for what it is, there are a few things that need improvement. I usually create user stories around each collection of tasks to insure that we are meeting our UX expectations. There is no way that I have found to do this in the app (see some of the other, physical agile task boards out there).
Some of the the behaviors of certain controls are a bit strange (such as the project manager list doesn't really seem to follow standard Apple conventions). That said it does meet somewhat of my needs but will not replace a physical task board.
Amazing look and feel on new iPad. Retina support is very well made. The software works very stable and I can recommend it to any iPad user who wants to start working according to Agile principles.
3 stars for potential
I love the design and interface. I want more colors as an option for additional flexibility. I also want the burn down chart to function properly. When I move cards to done, all the points end up on the first day. Is it cause I'm using an iPad mini? If it is, please fix it. I paid a lot for this app hoping it would function as it should.
