Project management is essential for both small teams and large corporations. It is one of the most essential factors that decide how well you and your team perform and completes a project. There are countless desktop apps for managing projects, assigning tasks to team members, tracking the progress, making corrections and so on and so forth.

We’re now living in the age of the 3rd-gen iPad and quite noticeably, there are tons of iPad¬†project management apps. You’ll mostly find that these apps are great for managing small teams. But you can extend them to use for larger projects with larger teams. The idea is to split things into smaller, manageable chunks in which case, things become easier to handle, manage and perform.

    Solid recommendations, Chandra. Might I also suggest FastTrack Schedule Go. Project dashboards and Dropbox integration make it a great iPad companion to FastTrack Schedule Win/Mac versions and MS Project. (Full disclosure, we’re a bit biased)
