WipQ

1.0 Released

We’re excited to announce the release of WipQ 1.0 — a simple and intuitive lean and agile project management tool for solo professionals and small teams.

WipQ was developed and used in–house for many years on countless projects, and we’re now sharing it with everyone.

  • Kanban board style interface.
  • Customisable queues and folders for organising your work and workflow.
  • Built in Swift for standard macOS interfaces as you’d expect, such as document model, versioning, drag and drop, copy/paste, undo/redo, printing etc.
  • Saves project data locally—no network or third party login required.
  • Exports all data as CSV and XML (in case you want to move to a different tool).

Queues and cards

Cards in WipQ are items of work. In agile projects these might be user stories or other project tasks, or even use cases or design documents. Cards can also have individual tasks required to complete the work, and can be tagged as having different types of work.

You can have as many queues as you like, meaning cards can move through various states (queues) until they are completed. Got a unique workflow state in your project? No problem, just one click in WipQ will add another queue for it.

Iteration/sprint folders

Create as many work folders as you need, to manage individual phases of your projects. For example in an agile project, you might create a folder for each iteration, or for each sprint in Scrum.

Work folders can be renamed, ordered and deleted. Cards can be dragged or cut/copy/pasted between folders as well as queues.

Standard macOS interface

WipQ uses standard macOS interfaces, including the latest document handling with versioning and reversion support, undo/redo, cross document dragging, drag to desktop, various cut/copy formats, printing, full screen, document tabs and export to CSV and XML (in case you want to move all your data to a different tool).
