Pro Quality! The update is a game changer!

EDIT: Looks like they’ve completely redone the iOS iPad version of Merlin Project, and it looks awesome! Professional grade very similar to their great MacOS version. I haven’t fully checked it out yet, but because it looks very similar to the MacOS version, I’m giving them 5 stars. I’ll review later after I’ve spent more time. I’m a very picky person, and this app is finally living up to its potential. Good job Project Wizards!

*I’m looking forward to some updated Project Wizardry for the iPhone version!!

Developer Response ,

Awesome Airobatic, thank you very much. We are proud of our new iPad version and we'll continue working on improving it. The iPhone version with its limited space has some issues we would need to think through. Thanks again.

What I’ve waited for

Merlin was the PM tool I used through my Masters Degree Project Management courses because I wanted to go as “Mac” as possible. The port of that amazing product to iOS in a full-featured thrills me.

Some of the areas requires a little more thinking (like how you have to hold on the + button to add an attachment), but I cannot says how thrilled I am!

Developer Response ,

Thank you R2ick for your review. That's right, to add an attachment tap and hold the + button, or…
1. Tap once the row where to insert.
2. Tap the row a second time
3. and select 'Insert > Attachment >…'

I’m a long time user of Merlin for desktop. Now the iPad gets the same love and attention. I am very pleased with how well it runs, and conforms to the iPad platform so far. It feels like a solid desktop app, running on the iPad. Nice work. This is how to take Merlin out onto the production floor, or into a job site.

Thank you very much adventure_tense for sharing with us your positive experience with the new iOS app on the iPad.
