I’ve been using iPads for quite some time now, or at least, it feels like I have. When I got an iPad, people still thought you couldn’t get any work done on them, and I remember being consistently flustered about that. I mean, I was able to get work done–why couldn’t anybody else?

Note-taking apps for the iPad come at a dime a dozen. From the more popular offerings such as Evernote and Simplenote to fairly obscure ones, there’s something out there on the App Store for almost every kind of iPad user.

There are several different methods and styles to accomplish planning. These methods can differ by the type of project being planned and by the planner’s personal preference. I use outlines and mind mapping to plan writing and personal projects but at work I needed something more. I am a CPA who works in public accounting during the day, and I find planning for audits requires something more than an outline or a mind map. Due to the size and scope of the project, I needed something more.

When searching for something more, Timeband came into my view. It allows you to create professional timelines for projects, which can include groups, milestones, and subset tasks. Once a timeline is created it can be exported to PDF for sharing and viewing. Timeband’s features intrigued me to take a look at it, but keep reading to see if it can handle planning massive projects.

Throughout the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the iPad series, I’ve been subtly approaching things from the perspective of someone traveling for pleasure. Possibly an individual on a road trip, or maybe a family on a summer vacation.

But, there’s a large segment of the traveling population that isn’t exactly traveling for pleasure. They’re traveling for business.

Yup, I’m talking to you, weary road warrior. That guy who spends more time in airport terminals than in an office building. For you, advancements in technology have really been a godsend. The smaller and thinner and lighter the better, right? But you can’t sacrifice portability for power. And so for many, a laptop is really the only option.
