App Description

SmartPlans is a flexible project planner and task manager. It's "Smart" because it manages the time that you allocate to your various projects, while maintaining the balance that you need to get everything done - meetings, customer contacts, simple tasks, and complex projects. And now, SmartPlans 3 integrates with our other productivity apps by way of your iOS Calendar.

With SmartPlans you can also create simple unstructured "to do" lists, record the time of multiple tasks and calls (great for managing contacts and customer billing), and even track your life balance goals.

How it works:

✓Create a project.
✓Fill it with tasks. Add more later.
✓Drag and drop to group tasks into Milestones, with alerts and deadlines.
✓Flip your iPhone or iPad sideways to manage multiple projects from the Gantt view.
✓View your Milestones and Tasks directly in your iPhone or iPad Calendar app.
✓Now sync Calendar with any of our productivity apps - SmartCal (iPhone), SmartPad (iPad) and SmartDay (Mac) - and they will automatically schedule in your other tasks and appointments into your current day.
✓There. Now you have everything from the forest to the trees. Even acorns.

STABILITY: SmartPlans is very stable and has been tested on all iOS devices by our own testing team, and by public users such as yourselves. If you experience any stability issues, it may be a corrupt install from iTunes. Simply remove SmartPlans from your device and re-install. This should solve the issue. Be sure to back up your data often!
