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.

Most of us manage projects of one form or another whether at home, at work, or at school. Tracking and managing Issues, Risks, and Action Items can help your projects succeed. At SG we refer to that list as your project's Action List. Even if you don’t manage formal projects, anyone who leads a team can benefit from effective Action List management.

An Action List differs from a traditional “to do list” primarily in that each item can be assigned to specific people on a team. SG Action List provides all the basic features needed for effective Action List management.

As a member of Simple Genius, SG Action List was designed specifically to take advantage of the unique features of the amazing iPad platform and deliver a touch-based, easy-to-use tool to professionals and non-professionals alike.

SG Action List was designed as an affordable solution for project managers who typically work on one project at a time and only need to track an Action List. If you work on larger projects, multiple projects, need to manage a task plan (schedule), or want more reporting and analysis tools, take a look at SG Project Pro.

An in-app purchase is available within SG Action List to expand it to the full feature set of SG Project Pro. With the upgrade, SG Project retains its app name and icon but otherwise reveals the full power of SG Project Pro.

Completely redesigned for iOS 7, SG Action List 5 merges the classic apps SG Action Log and SG Risk Log plus adds support for Issues and then adds brand new features.


• Create multiple projects and quickly switch between them
• Manage multiple Issues, Risks, and Action Items for each project
• Set an Owner and Due Date for each Item
