PowerCard uses an innovative and intuitive "task card" based interface where you create index cards that represent the tasks you need to accomplish and slide them around to organize them into priorities and milestones. This sort of organizational methodology has been in use for years by Project Managers who carried index cards around in their pockets. But PowerCard is the first application for the Mac to bring the power of these index cards to software. This method is commonly used in Extreme Programming, but can be used for any project.

I think this software has a lot of potential once it stabilizes. It should also be $29, not $59, though.

Looks kinda cool but I'm not sure its worth $60. All I need is a big checklist that says who is responsable for what part of what project & when its due. I cant really see paying $60 for that.

You want an Excel spreadsheet. You're not looking for project management software.

Works for those who are on the basic end of project management. You cannot usurp the need to learn and understand project management utilizing more advanced and complex PM programs...that's why the higher-end programs yield much better results for serious projects. Still this is good start to spring-boarding into the more advanced leagues when you've outgrown it or simply stay with it if you needs are basic.

Well, to each their own but your assertion assumes you buy into the project management style proposed by those "higher end" applications. There is a relatively large (and growing) segment of the development community that believes those methodologies simply are not effective (and are actually out & out "broken") and are inherently unable to be fixed.

Thats where new applications like this will start to come into play. I still think $60 is way too expensive.

I love the project mgmt paradigm, but the program is immature. I'm having some problems with functionality (e.g. deleting milestones) and crashing. Great start. Please keep making it better!

I hate MS project, its too cumbersome. This program really hits the nail on the head. I am disappointed I only found it until recently. I highly recommended this to anyone who is serious about keeping track of any type of project. Truly innovative IMHO. Hats off to the development team!
