Make something useful.

Lowdown helps software development teams focus on what they should build, when they should do it, and why they should bother doing it at all.

Prioritize

Drag features and milestones to re-order development or adjust iteration hours.

Edit Features

Collaborate on features stories with the entire team.

Edit Steps

Breakdown features into scenarios and individual steps in order to focus behavior towards business value.

Folders

Organize stories into releases or iterations using folders.

Plan

Use milestones to organize into iterations. Totals give insight into estimated time and cost.

Estimate

Use the time/cost estimate to help you prioritize your features against a real and finite budget.

Export

Export gives you a separate file for each feature so you can start testing in your repository.

Lowdown is 100% free with unlimited projects and unlimited collaborators, but is not necessarily supported outside of the latest version of Chrome. Lowdown is also opensource and available on Github.

databasically/lowdown

Lowdown uses Cucumber. Cucumber lets software development teams describe how software should behave in plain text. The text is written in a business-readable domain-specific language.

More about Cucumber

Lowdown aims to support Behaviour-Driven Development.

"This approach acts as a brake on the tendencies of technologists to get carried away in their enthusiasm for the technology and on the business from getting carried away with dreams of their ideal system. It makes it clear to both groups that software is an expensive thing, and that trade-offs usually need to be made in the real world, thus mitigating the temptation of software users to ask for a Rolls-Royce solution, when all they really need is a motor-scooter and for software developers to try and build an aircraft carrier when all that the users need is a row-boat!"
