Introduction

Get an overview of Volta's features and how to use them.

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.

Volta is available as a desktop application, from the browser and on mobile or tablet as a PWA. We recommend using our desktop application for the best experience.
