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.
