Thanks to Our Sponsor: Sifter

Your team has dreamed up a great app, and worked day and night to get it released. Launch day came, and it was a total success. There’s only one problem: everyone’s sending you bug reports, and you don’t know how to keep track of them. You’ve got new features you want to add in the next version, and issues to fix, and your team needs to keep track of them and discuss the best ways to fix them.

Sounds like your team needs Sifter, our sponsor this week.

With its brand-new Github integration, Sifter is designed to help you track bugs and follow up on them the way you’re already used to working. It gives you a clean dashboard where you can easily see the issues in each of your projects, and filtering tools to find the most important things to work on. You can discuss bugs and find solutions with your whole team, get notified by email when anything’s added — or just get a summary email at the end of the day, and can even add issues via email. It’s got everything you need to track — and fix — all the issues in your app, with brilliant customer support to help you out if you get stuck.

BugHerd: Beautiful Bug Tracking

Bugs happen everywhere on the web, and it’s really annoying when one presents itself. Therefore, bug tracking systems exist in order to squash out problems by tracking a bug’s progress from being found to being fixed. If you’re making a website or web app, you sure don’t want your users to be wondering why your app is so buggy. Bug tracking systems have long been ugly system, however. While I’ll avoid naming names, some pretty major bug trackers just don’t look nice and aren’t presented in the user friendly way that they should be.

BugHerd is a breath of fresh air, bringing a beautiful interface and user friendly, responsive design to the bug tracking world. In addition to a beautiful interface, BugHerd provides a streamlined, straightforward bug review process that makes the procedure from reporting to fixing, testing and closing bug related tasks incredibly simple.

Bugs and programming go hand in hand. You can probably measure a developer based on how much attention he/she pays to finding bugs, fixing them and tracking them to see if they ever show up again. Bug tracking is not the glamorous part of being a developer, but is the most critical one.

Bug tracking system of various shapes and sizes have existed for decades. Since the workforce is getting more and more distributed, bug tracking apps have moved to the cloud- either they are self hosted or cloud based third party solutions are employed. Self hosting is cheap, but becomes one more system that needs to be maintained internally.

Sifter is a bug tracking app that strives to simplify the cumbersome process of tracking bugs and issues. How different is it from the rest of the apps from a crowded vertical?
