[prMac.com] Honolulu, Hawaii - Pas de Chocolat, LLC announces its first iPad app, Treed! - Project Planner, a project planning tool that allows users to build plans quickly and visually, focus on actionable tasks, and visualize progress to their goal.
"We wanted to create a different kind of tool that is flexible and effective... that feels as easy as a to-do list, but also provides some structure or hierarchy, without the rigidity of a Gantt chart." - Cara Oba, President, Pas de Chocolat
Conceptually, it's a bridging of strategy and tactics, getting people to what they really want. That's what Treed is all about: visualizing a goal and achieving it.
Treed is based on the premise that starting with a goal and working backwards is a better, more effective way to plan. The app helps users focus on immediately actionable tasks, while keeping track of progress toward a target. Treed projects are also easily edited by utilizing the iPad's delightful touch interface, enabling intuitive drag and drop interactions. Project plans become visual and users never lose sight of their goal.
Treed is better than Gantt charts. Project "management" tools can be rigid and tedious to work with. Treed is flexible. It allows users to easily change their plans to reflect an evolving reality.
Treed is better than to-do lists. To-do lists are great when one already knows what to do. But, for some, planning freezes when they're afraid to start, or don't know what the next step should be. Treed is different. With Treed, users plan backwards from their goal. Treed guarantees that users only take steps toward their vision, and their steps are always prioritized.
Treed is better than using a pen and paper, or whiteboard. Treed on the iPad makes rearranging a plan as easy as a tap and a swipe. Treed's visual structure keeps sight of the bigger picture, while helping the user focus on what's actionable.
Treed is a new way to plan on the iPad. Treed is different. Treed is better.
Treed! - Project Planner is the best way for creative individuals to plan and visualize their goals on the iPad.
