Pros: Most people know about *task*-management software (OmniFocus is a great one) that help you prioritize and track your to-do items. In contrast, few people know about *project*-management software.

If you have to manage a project with lots of moving parts, delegate tasks to several people, and develop contingency plans for when some components of a project are delayed, then OmniPlan is for you. It is, hands-down, the best project-management software on macOS. You can develop your project plan in nested outline format, and a Gantt chart is created easily. Assign tasks to others. Add estimated time requirements, milestones, and due dates. And for really complicated projects, Monte Carlo simulation can help you get a sense for a realistic completion date. It's great!

Cons: There's more of a learning curve for project management than there is for task management. But the videos on the OmniGroup's web site help a lot.

Pros: Omniplan has the same interface as other Omni products so made use easier if you know any of their other pieces of software. Sharing is super easy as you have a variety of ways of exporting the plans to share with anyone not having omniplan. The import is great also as you can take from a variety of other programs and import the data into something usable by omniplan. The gantt function is great and really helps visually plan a project.

Cons: Not too many, one of them would be when working on a larger project the app can sometimes crash do to memory constraints it seems so good idea to save often.

Overall: When working on macs this is one of the best project management applications and makes collaboration easy with the variety of exports available from the application including web share.

Pros: This is a very basic, easy to use Project Management tool. If you are already an Omni user (Graffle, Focus) and need simple PM then I would recommend this. It is a first class Mac application.

Cons: This is not as powerful as Merlin. If you really need powerful Mac project management I would recommend you look to Merlin first.

Overall: It is a great tool for those needing a simple tool.

Pros: They layout and functionality of this product is spot-on. I love the hierarchy design for tasks, as well as report and schedule tracking.

Cons: The biggest issue that I have had with this software is the my file uploads don't always work. I'm not sure if it's because there's just so much data that can be stored for projects, or if there is a lag in the system.

Pros: Gantt charts, resource allocation, Monte Carlo simulations, planning extensibility

Cons: Mac only, a bit pricey, great if everyone can get on the same page

Overall: Having worked with various other planning and to-do list software, I am reminded of the elegance of OmniGroup's software, namely OmniPlan, for using with a team. When time and resource estimates are valuable to your planning but other web-based services are bloated and ugly, enter OmniPlan. If you and your team are Mac-centric, this is a great and superior option to many others in this space.

Recommendations to other buyers: As with most OmniGroup products, it is superior to many other product but is best when used in the Omni-verse, beside their other products. Valuable, but also pricey.

Pros: Whether you are new to project planning or an experienced hand in need of the most powerful features such as Monte Carlo simulation, OmniPlan has something to offer you. You can create a barebones project plan with a simple Gantt chart, and the you can expand and add details as needed. The granularity is really one of the main strengths of this magnificent app.

Cons: With so many features and options for customization, it is easy to get lost in tinkering and trying new stuff. Especially as a new or inexperienced user, you need to check yourself and only use the features you need - otherwise, the grand perspective of your project can drown in details.

Pros: Extremely easy to use and you can make very simple but visually appealing Gantt charts but there are also plenty of advanced features for more power or in-depth users. I really like it for creating critical path schedules that are easy to follow for presentations and to discuss with Owner's, clients, etc.

Cons: No cons really, I would just say that for many people it can be hard to get over the high up-front cost of the program. Would be really nice to have a monthly payment option instead.

Pros: Easy to use as long as you have a basic understanding of project management software

Cons: I wish there were more collaboration options to use OmniPlan along with a web-based tool like Teamwork and integrate the two in real time.

Overall: OmniPlan is your answer if you need to do project management natively on the Mac. It is a fantastic answer to MS Project on MacOS!

Comments: Automatic resource leveling (if you want it). Simple interface and easy design. I tried a bunch of the 'suggested' tools on this website and they all seem to be either missing the resource leveling or are extremely klunky. This tool is simple and works perfect. I'm sold after a few hours of playing with it.
