Stay organised while making apps!

LaunchBuddy is a tool that helps you keep track of all projects you’re working on and releases that you have planned.
In LaunchBuddy you can manage Apps, App Ideas, Releases, Checklists and even Taskboards.

— App Ideas —
Write down all app ideas that you have, including a short description. You can also prioritise your ideas by ordering them in a list.

— Apps —
Keep track of your apps’ development status, supported platforms, store, website & social links and much more.

— Releases —
Manage releases & app updates, including release dates, status and changelog. You can add tasks from a checklist to your releases in order to never forget those little details like updating screenshots or writing new marketing copy.

— Taskboards —
Create taskboards with all ideas, features and issues for your apps. Use taskboards to plan what you want to implement or how you want to market an update.

— Checklists —
Checklists are similar to taskboards, but there’s a major difference: They are blueprints of tasks, that you can add to any release. These are things that you have to do before pushing at any update - like creating marketing images, refreshing screenshots and making sure that VoiceOver still works.

LaunchBuddy has a generous free tier with almost all functionality included that can be used for up to 2 apps and 2 taskboards. If you need to manage more apps or want access to specific features like filtering your apps or creating custom checklists you can get LaunchBuddy Pro, which is based on pay-what-you-want, starting at tier 5 ($4.99).

It's time to shine!

Your app's icons are now also available on the iOS version of LaunchBuddy. For the initial sync you will have to keep the macOS version open for a moment (after updating it to 3.3.0).
This version also fixes a reload bug when changing apps.

Great tool for developers

I love having this app to keep track of how my release work in progress is going and my new app ideas. Such a great idea and a great tool!

Nice Start - Please add iCloud Sync!

I used to have an app called Bee that was a JIRA issue tracker that I used for tracking my dev work. Bee was discontinued, and I was sad. LaunchBuddy looks like it could be a good replacement, which makes me happy. The only thing I am bummed about so far is the lack of iCloud sync to keep both my Macs. Keep up the good work!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your nice words! I am working on an iOS client, which will then also enable iCloud sync of the mac app. You can DM me on Twitter if you want to get notified once it is out :) @FloWritesCode

Excellent Tool!

This tool makes it super easy to track and plan what you’re developing, and syncs between phone and Mac.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review LaunchBuddy! I hope it helps you as much as it helps me :)
