What can you use the app for?

Hi.diplo is a timeline for development projects that utilize Git. The interface uses a practical design to show all project history in one centralized location. There is no need for annoying email updates. Instead, users can consult the Hi.diplo timeline to see what’s been done recently. Notifications can be created along with entries for code changes, deploys and other items. Everything appears in proper order and the app works with any Git repository. Hi.diplo also presents a helpful tool for developers to share with their clients. Instead of taking up the team’s time with questions and requests for status updates, clients can view the Hi.diplo timeline to find answers on their own. That way only the truly important questions are presented to the team so everyone can work more efficiently.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Hi.diplo is still a work in progress, but it has already earned positive comments on the web. The application supports third party services like GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket while some competing apps only support one or two third party products. Many users love the ability to create public and private timelines, which give them the option to keep progress concealed or to build a management tool that can be shared with clients.

What are the differences to other apps?

Hi.diplo presents a user friendly interface that is very straightforward. This is a strong point for the application. Rather than complicate things for the sake of being trendy, the app keeps updates easy to read and manageable. The service may sound simple, but it is tailored to Git projects and can help reduce the number of time wasting emails sent between team members and their clients.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Hi.diplo creates a visually appealing space that doesn’t overwhelm the user. The timeline is logically organized so the user can view various updates and tasks in order. Each item is separated out and contained in a simple box with a bold header and basic icons that make it much easier to scan for specific tasks and events. Even a new user will have no trouble deciphering a Hi.diplo timeline, which is great for teams and companies who hire new developers to help with a project.

How does the registration process work?

New users can try Hi.diplo by clicking the white “Sign Up” button in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage or the green “Get Started!” button along the lower, center. The registration form asks for an email address, first and last name and password. The user is advised that they must complete email verification to access their new account. Users can also register using a BitBucket or GitHub account.

What does it cost to use the application?

Hi.diplo currently has a very unique subscription arrangement. While the application is in beta, users can pay as much as they want. Three plans are presented, including single project, 5 project and 10 project options. The user is given access to a 30 day free trail (no credit card required), then will be asked to pay however much they feel the service is worth. There are no minimum or maximum amount requirements and the user is billed their chosen amount each month until beta is over. This unique opportunity is only available during beta, so eventually a specific subscription fee will be put in place for each plan.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Hi.diplo is a helpful tool for any team of developers who use Git. The service works well whether the team includes 2 or 3 individuals or many. The interface is very user friendly and can improve communication throughout each stage of a project. The “choose what you pay” subscription system makes the service even more appealing while it is in beta.
