JXCirrus Project for Mac is a versatile project management program that helps you keep track of progress and plan out realistic timelines. With the automated planning feature that this program provides, you'll have plenty of help to make sure all your projects will be completed on schedule.


Good tutorial: There is a lot going on in this app, so the thorough walk-through really helps you get the hang of all the features and controls quickly. Depending on your level of familiarity with this type of program, you can opt for the full tutorial or just a short overview. No matter which option you choose, you'll also benefit from the opportunity to explore the preloaded sets of example data to see how a project will look when it's all entered in.

Continuous replanning: Not only does this app create a timeline for your project based on the data you originally enter, but it also readjusts that timeline every time you make a change. When you mark a task complete or add another resource, JXCirrus Project will recalculate to provide more accurate completion projections for the entire project.


Cramped interface: This program can do a lot, and the interface is set up so that you can see everything at once all the time. That's not always ideal, however, and it makes for a cluttered and confusing look at times. The tutorial is a big help when you're trying to get the hang of the controls, but even when you know where everything is, the interface can be jarring to look at. One main reason for this is that the main window is split in two sections, but unless you have a very large screen, you won't be able to see all of what's in either section at any given point without scrolling horizontally.

Bottom Line

JXCirrus Project for Mac is a useful and convenient piece of software. It provides all of the features promised, and while the interface may leave a few things to be desired, it's overall a very good free app.

Developer's Description

Turn a task list into a full project plan, simply and automatically.
Project planning and tracking is hard! Changes creep in, people leave or join the team, work is completed out of order. This is where JXCirrus Project steps in. Rather than you making up a project plan, just let it do the planning for you, simply, quickly and automatically. JXCirrus Project makes a complete new plan every time anything in the project changes (such as new work being added, or new team members joining). It even makes a new one when work units are completed. This means that the plan is always up to date, and you find out about problems with enough time to solve them.

As well as being a project planning tool, JXCirrus Project works just as well as a multi-person diary. Diary features include journal entries, appointments and addressbooks. JXCirrus Project scales to meet your needs. We don't know what the upper limit is yet, but we do know that it can track a whole department, with 20 live projects, 20,000 man hours of work, and 3,000 separate work units. JXCirrus Project adapts to the way you work. Projects can be structured however you like. It can handle construction, infrastructure, home projects, IT (Waterfall, Agile and anything in between).
