Over the last year we’ve tried a lot of different applications to keep track of bugs and other issues, but none of those apps sticked with us. They were either not suited for the job (Basecamp) or to difficult and ugly (Trac, Bugzilla). But now I think that we finally have found a solution that just gets the job done: Lighthouse by activereload.
Lighthouse’s tagline is "beautiful simple issue tracking" and that really sums it up perfectly. It tracks issues, not only a bugs, so you can use it for all the issues that need to be dealt with. It’s simple and it’s easy to use, it just does what it needs to do without loads of unneeded features. A great advantage for us is that our designers can (and want) to use it too. It’s also very nicely priced and it has a sweet API for us geeks to build your own scoreboard :-D (see picture).
There are some minor things that can be improved (for example, it’s somethings a little confusing to work with multiple projects) but it’s by far the best issue tracker I’ve ever worked with. To everybody at activereload, we really love your product and keep up the good work!
