Project Management Software

Anyone have any recommendations on Project Management Software for Mac OS 10.x?

I'm use to M$ Project and I can't find an application that is comparable. There are some pretty cool apps that just do certain tasks--scheduling, budgeting, etc.--but I need one that can do it all.

I got a new iMac at work and I want to slowly--more like quickly-- but surely transition to 100% mac.

Thanks in advance.

Might not be what you are looking for, but have you ever thought of using a web service instead? I use Basecamp at work and for my personal business and I couldn't be happier. I can access it from any computer (as can clients), and it's designed a whole lot better than most project management software you can buy.

Anyways, I just thought I'd throw that out. Here's the site:

Pretty cool. But walking through the demo/screenshots, I'm not sure it can support gant charts, pert analysis, critical chain etc. Do you use these tools/methods?

This is the software I ended up getting. Just what I needed. Now I am getting closer to never having to use my windblows PC. Actually, I think I'm done now!

Don't forget to check out Merlin.

http://www.projectwizards.net/en/merlin

Then, Office Mac 2004 has the Project center. And check out also, Daylite.

I'll second Merlin. I had a hunt around at the end of last year for an MS project equivalent and after trialling a few I settled on Merlin and have been very happy with it. Of particular interest is that it can happily import & export MS project files, which helps when operating in a mixed windows/mac environment.

Aww ... Merlin definitey looks a lot better.

I chose intellisys because it was also available on linux and windows (someone on my team still uses windows for some reason) .... plus my company is a big java fan.

Project management software alternative

I use iTaskX everyday.

http://www.itaskx.com

This software is BETTER than MS Project. The cost is MUCH less than MS Project as well.

The interface is similar to MS Project... but much cleaner. This is a true MacOSX native program that will replace MS Project.

Download a trial and see. I love it!!!!
