All in all, I like PMX but my biggest problem is that it does not handle and cross-reference multiple projects; every project must be its own file. Of course, PMX does not profess to be a feature-rich solution, but easy multi-tracking is the only thing keeping me from using PMX permanently. It's a great program otherwise.

I agree with the previous comments regarding what you actually need to project manage, GANTT, resourcing, levelling, clashes, etc. - PMX has all of this. The features MS Project has that PMX does not, I never miss.
Regarding extra features, back in the 1.x era, I asked the developer to include the option to select working and non-working days on a per project basis - he immediately slated for the next revision and it was there in 2 weeks.

He is constantly refining the application. He has outlined a clear roadmap for the feature set, and still includes extras if you ask.

Can you ask more for $59?

This project management tool is in the tradition of iCal, iTunes and iPhoto-- it does its job simply, beautifully, clearly and well, without a whole pile of MS-Word-style inscrutable baggage. For simple project management it is a pleasure to use, and it is a welcome addition to the OS X world.

Note that this is NOT MS Project, with automatic resource levelling, plan vs. actual comparison and all the rest. But it does have some fairly powerful features for a simple early-version iCal-like product. The main problems I had (mostly missing features with version 1.6 are fixed in version 2. It is well worth $59.95.

Version 2.0 in it first release had some pretty serious bugs that made it almost unusable, but that highlights one of PMX's best features-- an email to the developer resulted in very rapid investigation and fixing of the problems for version 2.0.1. he even included some of my suggestions at the same time. This level of responsiveness is the best I have ever come across in any product-- freeware or commercial. And the developer says there is even more to come in the next major release.

I won't go into the details of using PMX. It just works. All in all, I'd recommend it.

At $35, this was well priced...it is a simple project management application and was priced accordingly.

Version 2.0 added nothing significant and suddenly costs $25 more?!?! I was on the fence in terms of purchasing PMX, but the new price knocked me right off. It is half the price of xTime, but xTime is more than twice the product.

Mac developers seem to be getting more and more greedy

that depends, I just downloaded two great apps that have been around for a few years, are the results of hundreds of hours of work and are still FREE.

Generalizing makes a statement general and thus worthless.

xTime basic is $129, it is not double PMX by any means of the imagination. XTime Pro, which is an interesting application, in terms of feature set is over $200.
So, in conclusion, I think I got a lots for my $59.

Mac developers (like all others) are perfectly entitled to be fairly compensated for their work!

There are often thousands of hours of work involved in the making of a program and unless that program is sold thousands of times, in most cases you'll find that the developer is making little, if anything out of it!

At first, this application, while promising, had some key items missing. I shot off a letter to the developer and *POW* the features were added. Nothing complex; we don't want MS Project. We just want an easy-to-use Gantt chart program that works.

Version 1.8 is a great improvement. We use it know to schedule all our projects, and the export features are quite nifty (would like to see an HTML export, though).

Unfortunately the link for version 1.75 points to a dmg that contains "v1.72 (v1.73)"

This version has no toolbar icons.

Also, the author really should consider using kagi, as paypal is not very friendly to those who don't live in the US...

It looks good in the screenshots tho :)

Oh... how about adding a download link to the projects homepage ?
