App Description

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 100,000 apps sold in 100 countries, SG is proven and trusted on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.

SG Project was designed as an affordable solution for project managers who typically work on one project at a time. SG is the best basic task-based project planning app available. If you work with multiple projects or need more powerful features, check out SG Project Pro 5!

Or you can start with SG Project 5 and later use an in-app purchase to get the Pro 5 feature set. SG Project Pro 5 adds many more features and is great for larger projects, multiple projects, and when you want more reporting and analysis tools like critical path or studying over/under allocation.

With SG Project you will gain the confidence of being in control and understanding your project. And since the SG apps are carefully designed for ease of use and productivity anyone can use them, and can focus on the project, not the app.

Completely redesigned, SG Project 5 builds on the foundation of success from prior versions of SG and adds many brand new features to make it more usable and powerful than ever.
