Syncs project data between collaborators
Omni Group has announced the release of the iPad version of OmniPlan, its formerly Mac-only organization software. The app lets people manage projects by breaking them down into tasks and allocating resources. As a project progresses the app can be used to monitor changes, and sync information with other people collaborating on the same work.
The iPad app primarily relies on a Gantt chart view, which shows the durations of tasks and any dependencies or resources linked to them. These tasks can be edited or connected through drag-and-drop commands; the app will warn a person of any potential conflicts, and offer suggestions and solutions where possible. Users can also set targets and constraints.
OmniPlan for iPad costs $50, and requires an iPad running iOS 5 or later. The app is the last major Omni Group title to get an iPad conversion, following in the wake of OmniGraffle, OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, and OmniGraphSketcher.
