My team has started using ScrumEgde and I would recommend it to everyone. It's not as complex as most other scrum tools so we save a lot of time that would normally be spent in setting up projects, sprints, etc. I also like the community feature that ScrumEgde provides.

Agilo is great!

We are using it more than one year now, and we are very happy with it.
