Projects adlib

[ This app is no longer available for download ]

THE BEST VIEWER FOR MICROSOFT PROJECT. Reads MPP files without conversion or exporting, no installation of desktop or server-side software required. This is the only app in the store which can read Microsoft Project 2003-2010 files and display them very close to what you see in MS Project. Unlike other apps that force you to export to XML first (loosing some data in the process), Projects adlib understands MPP file format. It accurately reproduces all your tables, custom fields, date and currency formats, graphical indicators, font styles, Gantt bar colors etc.

Our app is a super convenient way of always keeping your projects with you. It features automatic sync with files in Dropbox, Box or shared folders on your company's server. Just hit CTRL-S in MS Project and moments later the changes are automatically delivered to your iPad! No extra steps required, like messing with exporting to XML or PDF.
