     Dont the perfect be the enemy of the good.  We need it now!

    • Ryan Kish

      OK, that’s our first Voltaire quote in the blog, Jstewart. Point well-taken. We’re working to make sure that the first rev is good, really good.

  • Really pumped for this wanted it in time for my fall busy season

    • Ryan Kish

      We are too! Thanks for the enthusiasm, Charles.

  • BK

    If it is anything like your other products, it will be my productivity tool of choice. Nice job keeping us in the loop. Keep up the good work! Thank you!

    • Ryan Kish

      You got it. We’ll keep the updates coming. In fact, here’s one – our iOS Development Team is exploring all the great new additions in iOS 5 this week at Apple’s WWDC.

  • Niclas

    HURRY HURRY! Looking forward to using it when you are done.

  • Larrynewquist

    Looking forward to it.
    It’s one more reason to bring an iPad to a jobsite for construction management.

  • Please keep HP’s WEBOS 3.0 based tablet in your software pipeline. HP accepting preorders now for release in August – September. The Future is NOW!

  • Kurt

    Hurry up! There is nothing out there right now for effective, easy to use construction scheduling.  Cant wait.

    • Ryan Kish

      Thanks, Kurt. We’re cranking away!

  • Conor

    No update for 3 months…. Any news?

    • Ryan Kish

      Looking good. Many new additions over the past couple of months. We’ll have more updates in the coming weeks.

      • Conor

        Ryan, please give us an indication as to when this is likely to be coming to the ipad. Will it be this year, next year, 2013?? Unfortunately the excitement is somewhat now turning into frustration with your vagueness and lack of willingness to inform us with anything more than “it’s doing great, lots more additions” etc. A date please and will this be available in the UK?

        • Ryan Kish

          I appreciate you being frank and upfront, Conor. This is our first iOS development project and there have been some unique challenges along the way. We certainly intended on having the iPad version of FastTrack Schedule available by this time. As for an official release date; unfortunately, we don’t have that date just yet. This is our number one development project, and the team is working hard to ensure that we ship a version that meets the standards that our customers expect from a FastTrack Schedule product. Regarding UK availability, yes, we intend on making the iPad versions of FastTrack Schedule available to customers in the UK as well. 

          • Conor

            Thanks Ryan, I appreciate you must be experiencing a lot of hurdles and pressure, as we all do in the project management world. Do you think it’s going to be out this side of Christmas? Sorry to be nagging.

          • Anonymous

            Hi Conor, I’d like to back you up on your quest for info on the release date. If it is a while off i.e. > a month then I will have to spend money on some alternative solution. If the release will be sooner then I will hang in there with what I have. So Ryan any indication of release will be handy. Thanks

          • Ryan Kish

            Dagszim, at this time we’re unable to say that a release
            within a month is certain. We continue to work toward completion and look
            forward to providing you with a release date.

          • Ryan Kish

            Your desire to have a release date is by no means nagging, Conor. Yes, there are always hurdles. Our goal is to get over them as quickly as possible. A release by Christmas would be a great gift – who wouldn’t want FTS in their iPad stocking? Is it a certainty? Today, we can’t say that it is. After a few more weeks of revved up development, we’ll have a much clearer picture.

  • Montie23

    How is it coming along?

    • Ryan Kish

      New feature additions, UI, and testing are going great. As for a release date, we don’t have one at this time. We hope to have more details to share with everyone soon.

  • Any update?

    • Ryan Kish

      Andrew – Making great progress, however, we don’t have an official release date yet.

      • Thanks for the update!  Would be happy to beta test for you if you need it.  We’re daily FastTrack 10 users for 15+ projects, and my iPad is with me all day long for notes, accessing Basecamp, etc.

        • Ryan Kish

          Thanks for the offer, Andrew. Will let our Dev Team know. Glad to hear that you and your team are making use of FastTrack day-in and day-out. Any recent/upcoming projects you’d like to brag about? We’d like to hear about them.

  • Rich Madonna

    Do you have a beta that you are looking for people to test?

    • Ryan Kish

      Hi Rich – At the present time, we don’t have a Beta program for the iPad version. Thanks for the interest.

  • SimonK

    I don’t suppose that you have any news on this saga? I bought this software in knowledge that something was coming for iPad …. but it has now been months and you cannot even tell us when? Straight question …. when is it coming? Straight answer please!

    • Ryan Kish

      We don’t have a date just yet, Simon. We look forward to wrapping up development and providing everyone with the launch date as soon as it’s nailed down.

  • Mark Smith

    Is import/export to other formats e.g. Mindmanager, iThoughts supported (key for me!) or only import/export of Fasttrack Schedule files? Also, is there Dropbox support?

  • DrWarden

    I was impressed with the software after reading reviews and sampling videos.  But after viewing this thread of comments, I am very concerned about investing a significant amount of money and effort on this software.   I have to ask myself what is the likelihood that the the project management app being “developed” will be better than the actual project management of the iOS app…. the inability to give even a ballpark estimate (after almost 8 months now of teasing) on a submission to the App Store, is a commentary in and of itself.   Definitely NOT the fast track!

    • Anonymous

      I agree.  I’m looking for a project scheduling software and it would be nice to know if the iPAD app is a dream or truth.

  • Kevin

    Hurry, hurry, hurry, really need it.

  • Dean

    13 months development!  Do we have to wait for another 13 months, weeks or days?  Rough idea please.

    • Ryan Kish

      Appreciate your patience. Working hard to wrap it up. Will deliver release details as soon as we have them locked down.

  • Dean

    Ryan – Another week gone by.  We use fast track on Macs and think it is great.  That is why we are keen to have the iPAD version for use out of the office.  However, we need to actually get on and do stuff and if aecosoftware can not give us a ball park idea for availability, which can be no more damaging if that is missed than this silence, we will have to consider alternative iPAD apps.  Don’t want to do that so please talk to us or get someone to give you permission to talk to us.

    If it helps you may copy and paste the following reply, that I am sure you will give in any case, so that you can stay focussed on the development:  “We look forward to wrapping up development and providing everyone with the launch date as soon as it’s nailed down.”

    • Ryan Kish

      Glad to hear that your team is making great use of the Mac version of FastTrack, Dean. And I understand your desire to go mobile with FastTrack ASAP. Feel free to call me at our main office, (800) 450-1985. I welcome your feedback, feature ideas, and questions on the iPad and Mac versions.

  • kimkpsg

    Gald to hear the good news about IOS, but are you considering anything for Android?

    • Ryan Kish

      We’ve had a lot of requests from FastTrack customers with Android tablets. Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich were great updates. As we work to finalize the iOS version of FastTrack, we’re taking a good look at the possibilities within Android.

  • Andrew Hartman

    Dr. Warden makes a good point below.  The irony of 8 months without an update to your stakeholders (being us your customers) seems a little strange.  Can you share a rough schedule for roll out, or at least provide an update?

    Also note that anytime your website is linked to Facebook or displayed in Flipboard (i.e. your twitter feed) the iPad app shows (See attached image).  You might consider updating code to resolve this if the iPad app is on the backburner.

  • Dean

    “Are we finished? What features will be in it? When will it be released?  I’m sure those are some of the questions on your mind, and we’ll work to provide answers and status updates as we move toward completion.” May 2011

    “………..”. Total status updates and answers provide between May 2011 and February 2012!

  • Carlos Moreno

    Guys,

    You need to release the app; you are loosing market ground and we need the app now!

    Gentleman, I simply can not purchase further software without at update on the iPad software version. Unfortunately the competitors have rolled out the cross platform which is very important to my teams mobility.

    What is the status of FT for ipad?  This is terrible, going on a year now and we have no indication of this will ever become reality.  This is a major blunder for AEC!

  • Jamkazoun

    What is more important to me is to have FastTrack on the iphone, not ipad. Also, for the iPhone, I would not worry about charts (Gantt etc.), rather I want to use the functionality for my todo list of the project. Right now, I am using OmniFocus on the Mac OS and iPhone and unhappy with the functionality and that I had to abandon FastTrack for that. I would like FastTrack to be on the iPhone and to be the best todo list manager for my work, and to be able to sync with the Mac OS version. Again I don’t care _at all_ about having charts on the iphone.

    Is about a year since the announcement – can we have a date? You should have this information specially, if AEC uses FT for the project.

    Well?? Is it coming or not? Very Disappointed in the silence & delay.
    I started to use the Mac version looking forward to working on the train on my iPad.

  • Montie23

    Well this is a symptom of something else.  Why cant they say when?  Maybe the company is grossly mismanaged.  Maybe they are being bought out or are understaffed with no talent.  If it was for a good reason they would say.  The fact that they have left this thread here, that is a shining example of there ability to ignore the customer, tells me that new customers are not on there minds.  The most humorous thing is a company that makes scheduling software cant nail down a date.  To quote a old boss “you couldent find a date in a fruit basket”.  I have been flowing this discussion since I bought the software a year ago.  Thats 12 months, 52 weeks and 365 days.  I am being a little mean here but in this day and age if you don’t move fast and respond to your customers you will never get good reviews anywhere.  Put something out there, listen to your customers, add the features they want, rinse repeat.  Not that hard.  You brought this on yourself. 

  • trust me this is the biggest delay I’ve ever seen. I asked about this 2 years ago its dead in the water i had to switch software all together
