Ratings and Reviews
Really basic, but good value for the price
This is very basic project planning software, especially for someone who uses Microsoft Project at work all the time, like me. However, if like me, you need a tool for planning a project out side of work, that does not cost a lot and will give you the basic tools to set and link tasks and milestones and capture all your notes against individual tasks, then I say go for it.
If you need lots of views and features, this is not for you.
I did read the previous review and decided to risk it for the low cost, having looked at the other planning tools available and their costs, I’m glad I did. I have not experienced any of the difficulties expressed in the review below, but then I am not attempting to build a sophisticated / professional project plan. I simply wanted something to get me started and this software is super easy to get started on and use, and I like the report print option, as it shows all my notes against each task.
DO NOT BUY THIS APP !!!!
This app has done nothing but crash and many parts of it don’t work. I have actually never purchased such a poor unstable app from the App Store before. I will be contacting Apple to ask for a refund as it is in no way fit for purpose and should never have been accepted and sold.
The idea is good and there is definitely a need for an app like this, but this is not an excuse for the poor development and testing. I would recommend that you avoid this app until the developer has addressed the very serious issues. At the time of writing the version is 1.0.3
Wish I'd read and beleived the other comments before I bought. If it worked it would be alright -sih. But it doesn't. Too many functions don't work - colour change on the bars, milestone has a redundant end point clock bug that you cannot get rid of, to name but a few.
I've wasted my money and a load of time that has cost me more than the purchase price and am now going have to fork out on another similar tool - I hope it is better.
The other reviewer is right - this app does not do what it should, should be delisted and buyers refunded by Apple.
