Microsoft Project Viewer for iPad
I’m not an iPad owner… nor the iPad 2. Although I do admit I did covet it when it first came out. It comes in white! And the case locks on with motherf#@*ing magnets!…
What am I saying? It’s a very expensive cool little tool. I have an awesome laptop. Why would I need an iPad? I think it mostly comes down to portability. It’s an awesome portable computer.
And, if you’re in the project management industry – as so many of our readers are, you may be interested in learning that there’s a new version of the Microsoft Project Viewer available for your iPad. So if you like to lean back, prop your iPad on your lap and manage large projects from the comfort of your couch – or on the go – Apps Adlib has released just the app for you.
Project Adlib – Viewing Microsoft Project Files on iPad
According to a press release just released by the company:
The app aims to become the must have tool for Microsoft Project users who own iPad. It closely reproduces nearly all of Project’s views, including of course the most important one for every project manager, Gantt chart. Task Usage and Resource Usage are also going to be instantly familiar to experienced Microsoft Project users. All views look very much like their desktop counterparts, removing the need for “mental shift” when switching between PC and iPad. In every view the user can pan, zoom in and out using standard iOS gestures. This direct manipulation arguably makes it even easier to navigate around big projects than on the PC.
