TangyOrange: funny name for online scrum board
For co-located teams, it's hard to beat a physical board with cards or sticky notes for tracking iteration status. Put it in a prominent place and it's an ever-present reminder to the team about what needs to be done. It's a rallying point for the daily scrum. If you have a distributed team, however, it doesn't work so well, and web-based tools often are necessary. There is a new online scrum board tool called TangyOrange, which has the look and feel of a physical scrum board. You can use a simple version for free, or pay just $5 every 40 days (strange billing period, I'd say) for the full-featured version. You can play around with it here.
