Project Managers are always looking to plan, organize, secure and manage resources using different PC/Mac Softwares. Having a defined beginning and end is key to any kind of project, be it small or large. Continuous strive to achieve your organization’s long-term goals, in general, and the short-term objectives, in particular, is key to carrying out company tasks effectively, and a well-devised project plan is the best way to reach there successfully. You may already be using some sort of a desktop-based project management application to plan, monitor and manage your projects, but what if you were to keep a close tab on all the matters on-the-move? Project Schedule is a simple project management app for Android phones that supports scheduling of tasks in Gantt chart and export them to CSV file.
To create a project schedule , enter a name for the schedule and tap ‘+’ button. Edit properties can be used to change the name and description for a task if needed. Start time can be added from these properties as well. To start a project, tap and hold on to the project name on the main screen and select start now. Projects can be duplicated, exported, or deleted via the same screen.
An added feature to this app is that tasks can be exported to CSV format and saved to the file or emailed. CSV file can be opened via any spreadsheet application on your computer. Running schedules also appear on your notification bar. You can choose between text, sound, text-to-speech and vibration notifications.

For instance, just talking of the various modes of notification it supports, we find that you can select from text, sound, text-to-speech (TTS) and vibration notifications when a task starts and/or ends. Then there is some elementary support for project calendars, and the support for Work Breakdown Structure can also come in handy in a variety of situations.
