SG Project Pro
By Simple Genius Software
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
The Simple Genius brand means fresh design thinking for practical project management apps. Designed and refined by a veteran Project and Program Manager, the SG apps address real-world needs for managers. And with over 80,000 apps sold in 80 countries, SG is proven and trusted on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.
All SG apps now have an add-on feature called SG Sync, available via in-app purchase. SG Sync lets you easily share project data across all your devices or with others, using your Dropbox or WebDAV account.
SG Project Pro is the flagship and provides a complete, practical toolkit for project managers that is powerful and yet easy to use. Pro excels at managing multiple concurrent projects and team members in ways that no other project management app does, making it easy to:
• Create projects and people using one click
• Quickly build and update task-based project schedules
• Build and apply custom work schedules to your projects
• Manage Action Items and Risks for each project
• Manage and report project costs including labor and materials
• Group projects and people in ways that make sense for you
• View, edit and report project data by project or by person
• Keep your team informed with simple, powerful PDF reports
• Keep stakeholders informed with reports designed for them
• Quickly view "what is happening this week" across all projects
• Manage team members effectively with targeted reports by person
Note: despite one review to the contrary, horizontal scrolling on the gantt chart works great (click and drag the timeline header), as does the PDF export. SG Project Pro's PDF reporting is very flexible and powerful.
Videos on the SG web site show SG in action and the full User Guide is available there too.
And take your project data with you on the go using the companion Simple Genius apps SG Project Pro for iPad and SG Project Go for iPhone. SG's Dropbox integration makes sharing easy.
If you manage a large project or multiple projects and team members, SG Project Pro was designed and built for you.

It’s good and easy to use
It’s good and easy to use, but I prefer the UI from the ipad version of SG project pro 5 than the OSX version one. Hope you guys could upgrade the UI soon.
Also the tabs are a bit wide, prefer larger view window, something like the pages or numbers UI.
Great tool for my projects
I really love SG Project Pro. I’ve used other PM apps in corporate, but I’m an independent consultant now, paying for my own software tools. I prefer the Mac platform and this is the only PM app I’ve found on OS X that is comparable to MS Project Professional, but without the $1,100 price tag. I started managing a project with it immediately after installation. It has a robust feature set and is easy to use. I recommend reviewing the documentation and tutorials to ease the transition from other PM apps. There were some differences that I found frustrating—someone mentioned horizontal scrolling, for example; you just drag the top of the timeline. The interface is very simple and usable, without a lot of unnecessary clutter. I didn’t find any of the differences to be a problem, once I understood what to do. It works beautifully and a review of the tutorials and docs— which are good— is worth the time spent. The project timeline, risk assessment, and task management features are just right for most project management. SG Project Pro can automatically transfer items from your project plan to iCal, which makes it easy to manage project tasks with other real-time events. I would like to see more charting, graphing, & enhanced report features, which are not as extensive as other apps, but these aren’t necessary for the projects I manage, just nice bells and whistles. Overall, this is a great roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-to-work tool. The developer has been very responsive to my questions and suggestions, which I consider a valuable “feature” as well. I’ve found that applications from large corporations tend to get bloated with features, and become less useful and less responsive to customer needs as they mature. That’s not the case here. I like the fact that SG Project Pro is created and supported by a real person who is committed to the quality of the product and genuinely seems to care that I succeed with it. Well done.
