Project has never been so easy admin
QuickPlan sets EASE and EFFICIENCY as the primary goals in originating your profession projects, plans, efforts, goals, and life on the Apple devices, which deliveries the most efficient planning practice to the users – It just feels right, all at your fingertips with a minimum of effort and learning.
Excellent project management app with Microsoft Project support (import and export of projects). The Gantt charts and gestures are really great. Intuitive and easy to use, powerful (batch) import and export (XML) functions as well as cloud sharing and synch between multiple devices. This is i.m.o. currently the best project management app for the iPad. 👍

Exquisite Tool – simplicity combined with power
I have all the project geek merit badges – PMP certified, contributing author of the PMBoK, and a 20 year veteran of running projects up to thousands of personnel and billions of dollars. This tool shines in regard to easy of use combined with functionality. 99% of the users of Microsoft Project can’t properly use more than 10% of the application as everyone geeks out and wants more functions and more gadgets. QPP allows you to QUICKLY get a project sketched out and running. Earned Value Calculations and Resource Leveling? Yeah good luck with that on any tool. Im not going to suggest any more functionality to this tool to avoid unnecessarily complicating it but I will ask for a web-based or Mac-based app to easier support the initial keying and loading of all the project activities. That’s not a shortcoming of QPP but rather of iPads, which simply aren’t as good as a full size keyboard for data entry.Thanks for a terrific App!!
Best Project Planning App
This is my go to app for project planning and tracking on iOS. I’m using it daily to plan and track projects and have found it to be the best project management app for iOS thus far. The ability to quickly enter information, move it around and organize it so that clients and stakeholders can understand it is priceless. In addition to project tracking, I’m using it for high level program management reporting to align management stakeholders to the overall plan and status.The developer has done a great job with the user interface and user experience. There are video tutorials available on how to use the app making it very clear on how to use. I’ve found it to be very intuitive which has made it easy to learn and use so I can quickly make changes while discussing the project with clients.The export functions are great making it easy to send a snapshot via PDF, Excel or PNG to stakeholders and resources to keep everyone on the same page with the project. Exporting XML works great when it’s time to make the schedule more complex than what should be managed on the iPad or if needed to align with an enterprise project reporting tool.I’m using the app daily and have found it to be the best project planning tool on iOS that is available.

Best Project Planner Anywhere!
Of all of the project planning /Gantt Generation Software I have used on either the iPad or the Desktop, this has become my favorite. It has added speed and ease to my workflow. I begin by brainstorming project tasks and milestones in iThoughts (mind map for iOS and MacOSX). This, for me, is simply the easiest and most intuitive way to begin planning. QuickPlan imported my mindmap into a Project with appropriate task and subtask levels. I could have defined more task attributes, dates, etc. in iThoughts, but it was easier to add them in QuickPlan. QuickPlan also spaced out the imported tasks and subtasks over a timeline, making it super easy to define time data by just sliding or dragging the existing gantt bars. QuickPlan takes full advantage of the touchscreen, and creating a project timeline was never so easy! I set a new record for myself in terms of the ease and speed of creating a project, which now syncs to other devices. When it came time to share or export the project, I got a beautiful PDF of the project timelines and gantt chart ready to email or share, and an Excel file that is also stunning in its organization. You could also export for Microsoft Project, and I was going to figure out a way to export into GanttProject, but frankly, QuickPlan is so good, I’m not going to use anything else – the exports are good enough for sharing. This program is going to give me such a competitive edge, I wonder if I should be giving it a review! NOTE: You may wish to think about the combo package that includes a WBS and Org Chart app, as it is only a few dollars more.
