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 Sketcher is the quick way to sketch out your projects using the two most common approaches: text-based outlining, and graphical work breakdown structure (WBS).

As a member of the Simple Genius project management suite, Sketcher is your starting point for shaping your projects during early stages. As the project gets serious, the project sketch can easily be imported into SG Project Pro for full management during the project execution. Or use Sketcher to create outlines or diagrams to be used in parallel with your project plan.

Sketcher's Outline view supports rapid creation of a hierarchy of tasks, deliverables, activities, requirements, or whatever you use to think about your projects. With simple swipe and tap gestures you can rapidly rearrange your outline as it develops.

The Chart view can be used in parallel with the Outline view as both views always show the same project information. The Chart view is an editable, graphical visualization of your project and provides a different view of your project that can be helpful as the project takes shape.

Sketcher has fields for labor cost, material cost, and total cost for each element in the project and automatically adds the costs up the element hierarchy, making it easy to sketch out your project costs or create a quote.

Like the other Simple Genius Apps, Sketcher can import and export projects in XML, SGP, and PDF format, as well as CSV format that can be imported into a wide variety of other apps.

Quick, fun, beautiful, practical, and well-designed.

solid intuitive WBS list and graphics

One of the most expensive apps – waited a long time to purchase. Also recommend SG OnePage. In Project Sketcher color of each task can be independently controlled for color-keyed project execution status – colors carry over switching between tradtional WBS list and graphic map of tasks. Notes attached to task are indicated by tiny page icon when present – date stamps, lots of room for text inside each note (entire email threads successfully pasted into a note). Requires an iPad with higher CPU speed for best responsiveness.
