[prMac.com] Dublin, Ohio - FourthFrame Technologies has announced a major update to the flagship of Simple Genius Apps: SG Project 2.0, available by the end of September. Designed for project managers on the move, SG Project has been a top selling business app for iPad, approaching 5000 customers worldwide in just over 100 days on the App Store and helping to prove that iPads mean business.
The Simple Genius Apps were designed specifically to take advantage of the iPad's capabilities and supply Project Managers with tools that can be used anywhere. "Serious project managers are seriously busy," says Ty Jacobs, designer of SG Project and a veteran project manager himself. "There is never a lack of work in project management and every minute of analysis and review counts toward success. Apps like SG Project allow Project Managers to take advantage of time that might otherwise be lost."
SG Project 2.0 will hit the App Store by the end of September and contains many new features requested by customers. "One of our major advantages was to reach the iPad platform first with apps for project management" said Jacobs. "The feedback we get every single day from customers around the world has allowed us to focus on what is most important to them. And the fact that we did clean-sheet design specifically for iPad is something the customers notice and appreciate." That philosophy has fueled the success of the fledgling app suite, and kept SG Project in the Top 25 business apps for over 3 months.
Among the hottest requests included in the upcoming release are import and export of project data in XML format allowing interoperability with desktop-based project management software. Also included are options for specifying weekends as non-working time and numerous enhancements to the user interface. "The feedback from our customers has been extremely positive," said Jacobs, "and our partnership with them is making SG Project hotter with every release."
