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.

Fantastic PM Tool / ...with some output bugs

Working still with the trial version, but will be subscribing. Great tool for plotting out complex projects, durations, dependencies. Very frictionless touch interface. Perfect integration of Kanban sorting and the report creation rapidly creates meaningful snapshots of project status for distribution to project teams. I work in MS Project on the PC, and have OmniPlan on the iPad. Merlin Project is far and away the best of them when it comes to on screen planning, having a very powerful tool at your disposal. Kanban integration and Reports far surpass both of the others. But......

Project output to pdf, print etc. is a work in progress and creates a pretty big stumbling block when it comes to distributing all of the great information that’s possible to generate in this app. Font color changes to white or disappears. Reports crash when exporting to RTF, text disappears altogether when converting to PDF. Best I’m able to do is export to MS Project which is a program I would love to never use again..

I contacted tech support a few times, they were incredibly responsive and are clearly working on further development. I’m rooting for them.

Despite the output bugs, the tool and the team that made it are too good not to support. Incredibly powerful for PMs on complex projects. Hope they work out the bugs soon. Willing to help if I can.

Awesome Rayne, thank you very much for reviewing the app so thoroughly. We really appreciate your feedback! We'll let you know when the RTF export or PDF conversion works again, the developers are working on including a solution in the next release.

Move over MS Project!

I have been working with MS Project for a number of years and in my search for something compatible with iOS and Mac 8 came across this jewel. Simple and straightforward without sacrificing the needed details of running a project of any sort. After the trial version I downloaded it to my iPad Pro and iPhone and now I am using only Merlin for my side hustles in Project Management. I look forward to the updates where I can customize the columns.
