What is Volta?

Volta is a web application with a simple goal: to help you manage your repositories and issues. It's built on top of GitHub API to provide a real-time and intuitive interface with an automated issue board out of the box. Volta also helps you reduce the overwhelming flow of notifications to focus on what matters.
