The Simple Genius brand means fresh design thinking for practical project management apps. Designed and refined by a veteran Project and Program Manager, the SG apps address real-world needs for managers. And with over 100,000 apps sold in 100 countries, SG is proven and trusted on Mac, iPad, and iPhone.
SG Project was designed as an affordable solution for project managers who typically work on one project at a time. SG is the best basic task-based project planning app available. If you work with multiple projects or need more powerful features, check out SG Project Pro 5!
Or you can start with SG Project 5 and later use an in-app purchase to get the Pro 5 feature set. SG Project Pro 5 adds many more features and is great for larger projects, multiple projects, and when you want more reporting and analysis tools like critical path or studying over/under allocation.
With SG Project you will gain the confidence of being in control and understanding your project. And since the SG apps are carefully designed for ease of use and productivity anyone can use them, and can focus on the project, not the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Decent, unusual interface, export to MS Project is Terrible
The interface takes a little getting used to, but you can get quite good at it and data entry is quick. By the 10 task or so, you get the hang. I would give it four stars due to the clever and iPad optimized interface.
HOWEVER, it needs to export to Project... and it is terrible. Yes, something goes out to a MSProject xml, but any resemblance between your project on SG Project and MS Project is unlikely.
Relationships between task is inexplicably pushed up to summary tasks (or even changed). Your summary tasks have their own dates. Oddly, some tasks are set to end 10-15 years in the future and have Must END dates that I know I did not set.
And all the resources that I spent time allocating... were completely wiped out. All assigned tasks were reassigned to the same person.
For example, if I assigned a task to Moe, Larry and Curly... when imported to MS Project, it showed the task assigned to Moe, Moe and Moe (yes, Moe in triplicate)
App no longer works with DropBox
This app and the upgrade to the SG Project Pro version. stopped working with DropBox a few months ago. You can no longer import from DropBox nor sync between iPad & Mac (or other installations) versions via DropBox. Communications with the developer have yielded nothing more than false promises to fix. It is obvious they have no plans to fix the issues, but just don’t want to say so. Instead they keep leading you on saying, “A fix is in progress and should be out shortly.” Well that was 4 months ago. It is unfortunate because it is a nice app, but without the ability to sync between devices it is really limited. I would rate this app 5 stars if the developer would just fix the issues. Capabilities we paid for and that are now no longer working. Apple should remove this app from the App Store if the developer is going to make false claims as to capabilities.
Developer Response ,
This was resolved later in 2018 and SG is working fine with Dropbox now.
Love this program but it has become counterproductive due to major synch issues. Box and Dropbox have not be working now for months, which forces the user to manually synch projects via email. The lack of this feature is the reason for the 3 stars...fix it and I will follow up to this post. This is unacceptable for a program that costs this much money, especially when loaded across a Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Wait until SG fixes it.
