Great App for Project Managers
Merlin iPhone app sync's up to your Projects on the go - full featured yet simplified Project Management features.
Dissapointed- no dedicated IP, no work!
I have been waiting for weeks to finally use merlin iphone. I was so excited to install...I have been using the desktop trial while deciding between two PM/GTD software programs. Alas! But now comes the hard part, getting it to work. The manual doesnt explain much if you dont have a dedicated IP your out of luck, the web instructions are even worse. It's been 2 days and only once did I get my project connected and that was via wifi on a local network. To give it a fair shot I thought it was just me and that I was doing something wrong. After countless emails to the support team & several forum posts, I find that with my basic airport network running DHCP, I cannot successfully access my computer if I am not on the same network with it. We don't have a firewall! What's the point of paying $60+ to access a network computer right next to me? I love the software and really want to use it. Maybe soon I will get full instructions or someone that can help... Shouldn't be this hard! Sadly disapponted.
Project Management has now definitely gone mobile
While I have worked with Merlin projects remotely with a mobile device while on the go, by using the Web Module to view projects in a browser, having this iPhone solution for quick mobile access along with an easy-to-follow user interface is a great addition to the product. The new UI footprint is superb and having a gantt display is a major thumbs-up. In fact, I am already finding myself quickly looking up project status with my iPhone rather than viewing Merlin on my Mac. Being able to view Merlin projects off-line also delivers great performance...I only need to connect to sync and update data, which doesn't take much time at all to do.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
