This is a guest post by Jay Managan.

The iPhone is an incredibly versatile mobile device that can handle a variety of applications without slowing down. This makes it a powerful tool for business-minded people who are always multitasking to complete projects even on the go. With the help of the right apps, making sure every endeavor is executed efficiently will be much easier.

1. Project Management Software

Looking for learning materials about project management? You may check out this Project Management app. This Project app comes with free training videos, software, articles and tips to help you manage projects. It includes all of the learning materials you need to keep on top of your PM career, as well as project management software to help manage your projects from start-to-finish.

You can download Project Management app for free via this direct iTunes link.

2. e-Task

Having to switch between the computer in the office and the iPhone just to check schedules for meetings, deadlines and project setups, can be a hassle. This app syncs with any of the user’s email accounts so that they can take all of their to-do lists anywhere they want.

Edit tasks when a meeting is cancelled or when a project is postponed, or create a brand new task list for new projects. An Internet connection isn’t required at all times, as changes made offline are saved and synced to the user’s email or to iCal when the phone gets back online.

You can download eTask from App Store for $5.99.

3. Merlin

Merlin AppThis app is actually a mobile companion to the award-winning all-around project management program for Mac OS X, so it requires having the software first installed on the user’s iMac or MacBook.

Once the two software have been connected through the iPhone Sharing Module, users can then bring all their carefully-drafted projects in their pockets. The mobile app’s key features are the ability to (1) modify every bit of information on the projects, (2) attach files, photos and more to the task lists, and (3) view color-coded charts for project timelines.

You can download Merlin for free from App Store.

4. Outpost 2

The people behind Enormego developed a native iOS app to complement the popular Project Management web app – Basecamp. Outpost 2 mobilizes the simple all-in-one page layout of Basecamp, letting users view their projects, team members and clients on the go.

The app also supports multiple accounts and messages, so users can switch between different projects while keeping communication with all contacts. Those same contacts can also be synced with the iPhone’s Address Book. Chart the progress of any project with the exclusive calendar view, which outlines the entire business plan in a nice streamlined chronological diagram.

You can download Outpost 2 from App Store for $19.99.

5. Action Method

It should be no surprise to see that this is yet another complementary mobile app for the main web app, basing its functions on the very helpful Action Method. Fortunately, this app can be used on its own. Organizing all tasks into multiple projects is hassle-free with its well-designed interface, so users can focus on executing each task instead of wasting precious time constantly fixing to-do lists.

Set priorities for important assignments with the Focus screen, and locate the rest of the crucial details spread out in different lists with the Quick Search function. Advisor page helps users get back on track by reminding them of stalled areas in their projects. For those who already use the main web app, syncing of data between its server and the iPhone is fast and constant, so there is hardly any downtime.

You can download Action Method for free from App Store.

6. Zoho Projects

Like the Outpost 2 app, users need to have an account on the Zoho Projects online web tool because this mobile app is merely an extension. However, it does prove itself to be very useful in its own right. Besides the standard access to view and edit established projects and the ability to create new tasks, it features an easily navigable Smart View interface, instant online updating to inform contacts, and simple task accomplishment checking and delegation.

Take down notes using the voice recorder so not a single minute is wasted having to type every little detail. Keep to a tight schedule with the timer feature that can log in start and stop times for any activity.

You can download Zoho Projects from App Store for free.

These five iPhone apps unlock the true potential of the cutting-edge mobile device, helping drive productivity in any organizational venture.

  • Pretty nice collection. I work with wunderlist for some time now. It works like charm and is very very beautiful to look at. It’s not feature packed but does all I need. And it’s still in development.

  • Hi there to every one, the contents present at this web page are actually amazing for people knowledge, well, keep up the good work fellows.

  • Let me suggest one more app in addition to this short list – Wrike ( It helps to schedule and discuss tasks on the go, monitor the work progress and track working time. If you ask what makes Wrike’s iPhone app different from numerous competitors, one of the key things would be the interactive mobile Gantt chart.

    A more recent app that I am using for project management as well as personal goal setting and achievement is What I like most about it is its simplicity, ability to add friends and accountability partners, or teams, as well as a weekly focus score and reminders for your daily tasks. You can run reports from the past weeks or months to see behavior patterns and find out when your most productive and least productive days are so that you can improve based on your own behavior or patterns of your team-mates. Hope this helps!
