There is only a subscription model only for Merlin. The charge of $149 is annualy! There should be a remark if the price tag applies to a subscription.
This is also true for many other apps on macupdate and this a general nuisance.

I moved to Merlin Project 5 from version 4 and I love it. The new Kanban features is awesome. But for me the resources pool is the big thing. I think that a subscription is absolutely justified for such a software. Many people here don't seem to understand that the developers of a software can't live if you put a great app on the market and then have to support users with updates for years for free.

I'm a user since version 1. With version 5, they are offering only a subscription pricing model, no possibility anymore to buy it. Goodbye Merlin...

The best project management app on the Mac, period. And less expensive than the very overpriced Omniplan. Omniplan has only a couple of advantages, like the bidirectional communication between Apple Calendar and Omniplan ( Merlin is only monodirectional, from Merlin to Calendar but changes in Calendar won't reflect in Merlin )
While Merlin's Mac version is top-notch , it's iOS companion is a bit underwhelming for the price ( 40 $ a year ), and only allows for minor changes and perspective. Very limited usefulness, don't expect much from it.
Omniplan's iOS app on the other hand is impressive, nearly identical to the Mac version , but comes at a very hefty price ( 150$ ! )

Bottom line : on the Mac, Merlin wins hands down, but really needs a better, more powerful iOS companion

As a project manager for an huge software enterprise I dropped all other pm solutions and exclusively go with Merlin Project. But since version 4.2 is out they really rock my teams with the groundbreaking Dropbox synchronization! Worth every single $.

Love this tool. More powerful than other project management tools available for the Mac. No problems after upgrading the OS to Sierra.

I am running my projects since 2 years with Merlin Project and I am more than happy. Especially the integrated mind map and the filters are well thought and done. No more without!

I am extremely pleased with Merlin Project, and even though I probably use only a fraction of its features I find it an essential tool for my work.

I'm very impressed with the power of Merlin 4. Checklists allow for fine-grain, repeatable details I've struggled to capture in other PM tools.

Merlin 2 user, upgraded to Sierra—now can't open the program until I pay an additional $185. The new features don't justify pulling the rug out like this from people who simply upgraded their OS. This is disgusting. The program already worked (well). This feels like typical upgrade cash cow bloat, with a bit of extortion thrown in for good measure.

Have to buy new upgrade to be able to use on my Mac since I updated my operating system. That sucks! I have been a Merlin user since day one. I will go hunting for something else now. Disgusted.

Hi, I've used this software (Merlin 2) for a planning a big 6 months project preparation for 6 people. The huge advantage i've mentioned are:
1. you can see duration in weeks on Gannts Diagram (it sounds stupid,but it really helps to identify terms of task) and you can not see this feature in another applications.
2. If you have overloaded person in your plan you can manage his\her time on separate sheet and see how the duration of task will be changed. It saves a lot of time.
3. Movement over the whole 1200 strings plan was wonderfull ans so fast.
In comparisson with Microsoft MS Project i did a plan 3 times faster, really. To hide from my boss that i used another application - i've used export to MS Project file. It works really.

I was used to the former 2.x version and it took me a while getting the new options after the upgrade. Now that I got on track with it, it works perfectly for me. Sure it offers more than I would need on everyday work, but it imports fine from MS Project 2013 (older version couldn't), I can easily plan my tasks and check different views if I need them, or simply report by a report view. Small little things like search and replace, filters with or without hierarchy, the option to output the schedule with Spanish headers if I need and now rich style export of rows with time boxes helps me do my job as PM exactly as I need it and helps me to know that the software will help me, if I need more.

Create a conceptual version of your project plan as a mind map, and Merlin Project will transfer automatically what you have entered to the project’s work breakdown

Best tool for several projectmanagement-tasks. Since the last updates a lot of new features really make me happy and I can provide specific project timelines for different clients. Merlin allows me to give professional output for my clients.
