From your question, I assume by agile tools, that you are asking for agile tools for project management. Companies choose these tools based on their licensing budgets, existing platforms and technologies that suit their environment. For example, if the company is working with Microsoft products, then they may get some trial licenses for Microsoft foundation server and eventually start using it. Here are some of the tools that are popular in agile project management.
 Atlassian Jira/Jira Agile- This is one of the more popular tool names that I know of. This tool is used for product development tracking, organizing issues, assign work and team activities. Jira handles majority of tasks as issue types. User stories, bugs, epics, new features are among the few issue types that can be tracked, managed and shared in an agile project.
Axosoft OnTime Scrum- This is a HTML-5 based tool that provides management dashboards, burndown charts along with time tracking for coding and testing.
Microsoft visual team foundation server- This works in collaboration with the visual studio as an application life cycle management server. The tool aids in management of tasks among team members that can be used in an agile environment. Developers using visual studio for development in C#, Java or other platforms would definitely prefer using this to distribute their tasks.
Telerik TeamPulse- This is another popular tool that helps manage requirements, bugs and can work with Microsoft TFS that supports Kanban and scrum. The product offers a feedback portal, product owners can prioritize their backlog while project managers plan their sprints. This can be used in tandem with TFS, where developers use TeamPulse for tasks and integrate with visual studio with TFS.
Rally- I have had personal experience using this tool for an agile project. We used a Kanban style board for managing the tasks along with the required user stories for each sprint. Rally has excellent ease of use, one can create their user story, bug, epic or task and assign the size and severity and ownership. Based on the style used the priority of the user story, task or bug is decided and pulled in or out of the current sprint.

JIRA software is used in agile as a project management tool.this software support any agile methodology be it scrum or kaban.
we  can use jira for planning, tracking and see the development of project time to time. jira help team to deliver higher quality software faster.
as we know SCRUM  has four pillar. sprint planning, daily scrum meeting,sprint and sprint retrospective meeting. agile is the only software that work on all this four parameters. that ensure product quality and faster delivery. from  SCRUM BOARD we can create and manage our project.

AGILE methodology is a practice that promotes continuous iteration of development and testing throughout the software development lifecycle of the project. Both development and testing activities are concurrent unlike the Waterfall model. I hope we got an idea of Agile!!! Now, we can step on to Agile Testing.

I have listed some of Agile methodology tools

"Axosoft's" project tool tracks the project . The Release Planner offers a tabular view of the different tasks, bugs, and user stories.
LeanKit aims all the tasks, user stories, or bugs that must be addressed.

"Planbox" offers four levels of organizational power to keep multiple teams working together toward a common goal. team finishes the tasks created, Planbox tracks the progress on all these levels and produces reports for all stakeholders, time tracking feature lets everyone compare the time they spend on an item with the estimate

"VersionOne" is designed to organize all the groups involved in development across an enterprise by providing a stable communication platform.

"Telerik" is known for its numerous frameworks for creating apps for the mobile marketplace.

"Pivotal Tracker" is just one of a constellation of tools from Pivotal Labs created to support agile development Project Monitor for displaying the status of the build, and Sprout, a configuration tool. The core of the project is a page that lists the tasks that are often expressed as stories.

Advantages of Using Agile:
1.Customer satisfaction by rapid, continuous delivery of useful software.
2.People and interactions are emphasized rather than process and tools. Customers, developers and testers constantly interact with each other.
3.Working software is delivered frequently (weeks rather than months).
4.Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication.
5.Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers.
6.Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design.
7.Regular adaptation to changing circumstances.
8.Even late changes in requirements are welcomed.

Disadvantages:
1.In case of some software deliverable, especially the large ones, it is difficult to assess the effort required at the beginning of the software development life cycle.
2.There is lack of emphasis on necessary designing and documentation.
3.The project can easily get taken off track if the customer representative is not clear what final outcome that they want.
4.Only senior programmers are capable of taking the kind of decisions required during the development process. Hence it has no place for newbie programmers, unless combined with experienced resources.
