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.
Top 5 iPad Apps for Project Management
1. Project Planner HD
Project Planner (for iPhone) was one of the most popular team/task management apps ever built. The HD version is made specifically for the iPad with all of the features ported intact. It brings almost every feature that you’d need, from Gantt Charts to multiple export options and cloud support. It’s a full-fledged app and the $5.99 is a steal for the amount of features it has.
2. Cohuman Task Management
- Email Integration
This app is one of my favorites. It integrates beautiful, seamless design with a simple and focused approach to task management. It’s not a sophisticated app like Project Planner HD, and nor does it bring a lot of features to the table. It’s simple task management for teams and that’s about all it does. More like a social version.
Cost: $9.99 (Original: $29.99)
xPlan wouldn’t be on our list because it’s one of those high-end project management apps that would normally cost $29.99. But this October, the app is up for grabs for just $9.99 and that’s a real deal.
xPlan is best suited for those who love to have fun managing projects. It’s not about serious pie charts and progress bars and stuff like that. This app is all about a really delicious interface that brings complete functionality and control over your teams and projects.
4. Project Management
At first glance, Project Management might look novice but it really is a very good app if you plan to manage teams, assign tasks and all the project-related stuff. The app is one of the first project management apps to be developed and so, the interface definitely looks old-school. But the resources are really great. The app also offers video lessons and tips on managing teams and projects better.
AceProject is actually web-based project management software which has an iPad counterpart. So, if you have an account at AceProject, you can very well manage it through your iPad. The whole software is designed for a wide range of teams with different needs.
This app has a really cool interface and pretty neat functionality too. The good thing is you can have unlimited users (team members) even on the free version. The limits are on file-sizes.
