The method was first described by James Grenning in 2002 and later popularized by Mike Cohn in the book Agile Estimating and Planning.
Planning Poker should force people to think independently and propose all numbers at the same time. This is accomplished by making all participants show the card with selected number, on signal.
This application makes it possible to play planning poker without playing cards.

Planning Poker, also called Scrum poker, is a consensus-based technique for estimating, mostly used to estimate effort or relative size of user stories in software development. It is a variation of the Wideband Delphi method. It is most commonly used in agile software development, in particular the Extreme Programming methodology.

-For those looking for poker the game, this is a tool used for software development. Please don't complain but if you install the app do enjoy the bacon.
-You are responsible for wiping off your own screens after being unable to restrain yourselves from wanting a sweet tangy taste of bacon. It happens, live with it.
Why did I create this app? The idea popped into my head a few years ago when I started up on a project utilizing scrum / agile development and teammates with smartphones started using phone apps for planning. When I finally got an Android phone I decided to implement it, both for personal use and my love of bacon. There might have also been a very bacon-adverse member on my team.
Why pi instead of coffee? While in scrum training the cards given to us had pi. It was explained that upside down that could represent a coffee break but some preferred a beer break. I prefer the beer but stuck with the awesomeness of pi here.

Planning poker is a fun and quick way to drive estimation. It's very popular in agile methodologies like Scrum or XP but in no way limited to these.
In planning poker, members of the group make estimates by playing numbered cards face-down to the table, instead of speaking them aloud. The cards are revealed and the estimates are then discussed. By hiding the figures in this way, the group can avoid the cognitive bias of anchoring, where the first number spoken aloud sets a precedent for subsequent estimates.
In this version, the available sizes are ½, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 20, 40, 100, "no idea" and "I need a break".
