    I'm a designer looking to implement some project planning. I'm interested in something visual (designer) simple, and cheap.

    I think it's a Gantt Chart, but am open to other ideas.

    Of course, it has to be Mac.

    Any thoughts?

    It's a quibble, but I wish Omniplan would let you more intuitively assign a detailed note to the task.

    Like I said... quibble.

    Plus it's at least twice what I want to pay.

    Other than that...

    I'm not sure what is available for less than $100. I use MS Project simply for compatibility reasons. Merlin is supposedly a great OS X-based app, though it retails for $199.

    Depending on the features you need, you can get quite a bit done in Excel. It won't do a Gantt chart and automatic scheduling and resource allocations, but if you're looking for something quick and dirty (and for relatively simple projects), it could be a workaround.
