OmniPlan 3 App Reviews

3 add

So buggy and so slow!!!

I was trying to do a very simple thing. I had to create a project in the past and had to create some tasks. I was not able to set the project start AND end date. Also when i entered date 03-10-16 the task is shown ending on 04-10-16. When i tried to change the date many times i got an animation in the date field and the dates were randomly changing where omniplan just hang... Overall the performance is too low. And these are even the BASIC FUNCTIONS only. Very bad overall impression for such a high price...

Good choice

I bought it to get free from MS Project and to have something reliable on OSX without being forced to use Parallels Desktop or so. The software is great, does everything a cheduing software needs to have. You need to go once through the tutorial because some things are different than I was used to have it in MS Project. And boy, the print outs are exactly what you see at the screen, you don’t have this on-going pain of multiple printouts with MS-Project. The German translation needs partially improvement. I reported 2 (very minor) bugs and got reply the next day. One was export to MS Project where you had to switch views once to appear all tasks. I hope they make enough revenue so they can keep this business going. All the best, guys!

Getting to the Pro Level

Love the look and Feel of Omniplan! Love the fact that they added Earned Value into the product and also network Diagrams (2 significant features for good PMs). LOVE the fact that I can do a PERT based estimation of a task (best, normal, worst) for each line! Like the monte carlo simulations (great work on this by the way!) Some things I would like to see: More pictures for the reporting (the reporting is good, but give me some line graphs for the Earned Value tracking) Risk Tracking - Please add the ability to create a risk against a task with the standard, likelyhood, impact, mitigation plan, etc. Even if you just give me a tab and some basics, would like to keep risk tracking in a single tool instead of creating another spreadsheet for that. Rating a solid 4 stars. Good product, but with just a bit more polish and a few more features it would knock MS Project off the radar.

Argh! I cannot buy it

Given that its sold into enterprises - folks wanting an alternative to MS Project… only having in-app purchases is impossible since VPP (Volume Purchaes Program) does not support that. And don’t ask me to go through a two month vendor management review to add a vendor to buy this direct - not to mention that tracking licensing for non-app store apps is a major pain that we try to avoid wherever possible. It would be useful to submit 2 apps - one a direct purchase and one an in-app model. Off to look at other options.

Free to download, but actually only trial version of a $300 app

Looks like it is a free app, but actually ony a trial version. Non-trial version is $300, which is more than any other app I have seen in the App Store. Basically this is "OmniPlan Pro Trial” and it should be named accordingly. I have no intention to even test it knowing that it will expire in two week. Will just search for another tool that does the same thing!

I like your app, but..

I would like to get “thick” bars like in the iPad version, is this possible in the OS X version?

Shame about the price

This app is really well written and easy to use. One, huge issue… You have pay $300 to get the ability to read and write MS Project files.

Powerful, flexible and reliable alternative to MSProject!

I’ve spent a lot of time seeking a viable Mac alternative to MS Project, and OmniPlan has grown into precisely that, particularly with OmniPlan 3. I do quite a bit of professional scheduling work (I’m an engineer, granted, not a PM), and find OmniPlan is wholly capable of everything I need from it, including some fairly elaborate estimation and analysis functionality. I continually have to interoperate with MSProject users, and am also very satisfied with OmniPlan 3’s capabilities there. Every version has improved very substantially, yet license and upgrade pricing remain very reasonable (particularly when compared to MSProject itself). I strongly recommend anyone seeking corporate-grade project management and scheduling capabilities on Mac take a look at OmniPlan!
