I'm looking for recommendations for (preferably offline) project management applications that I, as a sole developer/project manager, can use to apply the scrum methodology to my process. Advice, links, etc. will all be appreciated.

Personally, I really like OnTime because of how intuitive it is and because it is free for up to two developers. They have a client so that you can work offline (I don't think the free version allows this), but the online experience is wonderful as well (browser-based or client-based). They have really thought through the development process and have made their product as smart as possible. Here is a link to their site:

As for fully offline products that are free, I've not found one yet that I like.

OnTime fails because even the trial requires credit card details. That is a big minus for me.

We use Rally[^] where I work (it is online however).
 
Of course, if you need a single user offline project manager, and you can't find one, you could always write your own. I wouldn't imagine it would be terribly complex, mostly just CRUD-type stuff.

These things tend to grow like topsy, and I'm looking for such a tool because I'm battling to manage my already existing work. I'll have a look at Rally, thanks.

I understand, 5 minutes after I posted I already had a small list of cool features that could be added to such an application in my head...

IBM Rational Team Concert (they have a trail period)... But I think its better to use it if you use some of there other products already as there products compliment each other and the one product serves as a input to the other.

Try taking a look at Eylean Board.
It's a desktop client which may be used on your own or with a team if needed (using locally installed Eylean Server). Only pricing for the teams is provided on the website, but contact their sales to receive an individual offer for personal use.
Eylean Board is intuitive and very simple to use. it provides a virtual task board, time tracking, Burndown chart and various time reports.
The tool supports Kanban, Scrum or other custom process and can be integrated with Microsoft Team Foundation Server.
