    Are there any apps that allow you to edit (not just read) MS Project .mpp files? I've searched and can't seem to find any.

    Thanks - sluggo337

    Yes, I've used SG Project Pro at work, however the MS Project support (export / import via XML) really isn't good enough for my needs. I rely so much on desktop MS Project that anything less than compatibility with mpp files for me is no good. YMMV.

    The prior post mirrors my experience. SG's ability to seamlessly work with MS Project files is not ready for primetime. I've also found no other applications that work with the iPad that allow editing of Project files.

    It seems like an application that is begging to be written.

    How would you rate SG's ability as a stand alone project tracking app?

    Thought I'd bring this back up. Any app for editing .mpp files from Project?

    Microsoct Project on iPad Gantt Lite

    Hi Guys,

    I havent tried SG Pro but there this app Gantt Lite(free) and Gantt Pro(paid) which lets you export your ms project plans to iPhone and iPad. Currently they do not have an editing feature, however this app lets you add/edit task notes to every task in your plan.

    They have also come up with a gAppServer plugin which enables you to access your plans directly from your project server.

    Update: I found Project Planning Pro for iPad - Lets you create new plans or import existing Microsoft Project Plans. Though it requires XML conversion. It scores over other apps for me as it maintains task relationships I have created in MS Project very well. Other apps break the relationship.

    You heard wrong. There is currently no MS Office app for the iPad. See other threads re rumors.

    You can try QuickPlan Pro, which is easy to use with MPP integration.
