Check Out These IOS Apps For Your Next Project Management Event
Project management is an exact art that is probably best described as ‘snatching victory from the jaws of defeat on a daily basis!’ Well, perhaps that is ever so slightly dramatic, but the typical project consists of plenty of plate spinning and an awful lot of group huddles. The project can only be completed successfully if the team and manager are able to communicate each and every step and issue of each task clearly to each other. And then there are the stakeholders to consider, easier said than done. So what kind of toolset is required to keep all of these happy campers, well…happy? There are a myriad of different project management Apps available on the iOS Smartphone platform, and the best of these are reviewed in this article – Enjoy!

This App will run on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and it requires iOS 4.3 or later for smooth running. Okay, to control and monitor an entire project takes quite a few tailor made toolsets, of that there is no doubt. But this App has cleverly collated the best of them into one easy to use piece of software. Despite the bland name, Project Management Software is a very clever collection that includes a hell of a lot of very useful information for new and experienced project managers alike. And you get a bunch of very informative training videos that cover a lot of scenarios with solutions for every sticky situation included. There are articles published every day that keep you in touch with the latest project management theories and discussion forums. As well as all of this, there are enough project management tools onboard to launch and keep control of even the largest project. This has been endorsed by NASA, the UN and a plethora of impressive international organisations, so we think it’ll be okay with most of you out there – Have Fun!
