B1001010 - The “free” 2-week trial is disingenuous
I need a project planning tool,
This looks like a great one.
I would like to try using it during the “free trial”, but I can’t. The two week free trial is in “read only” mode, where I can’t make a project to try it out.
Yes, I could sign up for the monthly subscription- but I’m not going to, (1) now I have to remember to cancel it if I don’t like this app, and (2) I feel lied to. The product description didn’t say anything about a read-only trial, it’s only in the app.
And to me, that is disingenuous & I cannot support that
tripslip2000 - Absolutely overpriced, buggy and mediocre when it does work
Version 4 is no different than 3 from what I could see. A few new features that do not help with scheduling, just fluff.
Omniplan 3 is now broken and unusable and the fix is to buy a new version. Why would I buy a new version when we are still waiting on fixes from the previous version?
I have been trying to use Omniplan 3 for a few years to run my fabrication shop schedule. It has had the same bugs and short comings since day 1. But instead of fixing the one I paid for they made version 4 and said I can upgrade. I paid for the full pro version and was amazed at how buggy it was. And, when it did work it was mediocre at best. We deceived to go with Omniplan and get 1 dedicated Mac just for this software only to find out you can only share with other Omniplan users. So I have to print out screen shots or PDF’s to share with my team. And the tech support, that’s a just message board that has long been abounded I have questions up there for almost a year and not a single person from Omniplan has even bothered to acknowledge them.
Cerniuk - Decent C Student
in 1989 I ran MacProject on a 16 MHz 68030 Mac IIcx which was roughly 80 times slower than my current MacBook Pro, yet MacProject had signifiantly more capablity and better usablity.
OmniPlan still lacks the more sophisticated "network" or PERT Chart capablities of MacProject 31 years ago. OmniPlan still lacks the ablity to have sub-projects, like MacProject had, which makes OmniPlan less than enterprise grade.
MacProject was one reason why senior management at Sabre ran Macs in the 80/90's, because MS Project did not come close.
This tool is the best we have today for project planning, but by far not the best we have had.

rajdor - Nothing but crashes for me
I bought a new MacBook air looking to finally commit to moving over to apple and was looking for a MS project alternative. After a brief go at this one under the 30-day trial it looked OK. I was after something serious to step up my game, so while the price was high, I was prepared to pay since I believed I was getting pretty much the best I could get on MacOS.
Every time I use it however, I always get a crash, have given up and Apple is declining a refund. Which is strange because not actually being fit for purpose, is kind of against consumer laws where I come from… I hope your mileage is better. In hindsight, should have just bought MS Project for my windows machine. I’m back to spreadsheets for now….
