What is it?

16Bugs: An online bug tracking and management system for those of you creating software to take over the world.


Who makes it?

Michele Finotto

Why is it the killerest?

I've been around many bug management systems at various size companies and I've found most to be too tedious to use and too complex to navigate. 16Bugs does a great job of making bug management simple, offering only the needed features. It's also a javascript-driven site which helps make the entry and review of bugs quite simple.

What could be improved?

There are some small items that could fixed. For instance, right now you can only add an attachment to a bug when you create it and not later.  However, 16bugs is very responsive and multiple times I've supplied feedback and had new features and/or fixes implemented the same day!  As a startup, they both encourage feedback and take it to heart.

How much does it cost?

Tiers based on storage & features: free/$8/$15/$25

Sounds really interesting and not unlike BugWiki, the bug tracker I use.

You forgot about BontQ issue tracker to add to this list.
