At work we use MS Office 2010 Professional but it doesn't include Project. I am going to be starting a big point of concept project within the next week or two and I need to stay organized. Any suggestions on a project management software package? I do have a couple of wants/needs:

1. Preferably has a desktop app although I can live with it just being on the web but needs to be cross platform
2. Has a universal iOS app for both iPhone and iPad
3. Can be backed up to either iCloud, dropbox, or evernote
4. I am willing to pay but I need to try before I buy

I have tried teambox, podio, and liquidplanner but they don't fit what I am looking for.

For general purpose and very easy to use, Trello is quite nice. Free, has mobile apps for iPhone, Android and 8/RT, can export data, etc.

Not sure if it'll fit your project needs, but kind of partial to Yodiz for a hosted solution myself, agile, scrum, issue tracking, source control integration, has mobile apps, all that stuff, free for 5 users.

Friend of mine swears by OnTime (also geared towards developers), has similar features, along with plugins for Visual Studio, Eclipse, etc, not free though.

Trello looks awesome but I don't understand how they only have an iphone app and not an ipad app.

Can't comment on the iPad, but haven't had issues with the site on an Android and Windows tablet's browser. Supposedly they're working on an iPad app though, marked as in-progress on their board.

I am definitely going to give this a try. Hopefully the actual app will be out soon but I can live with using it in the browser form for the moment.

Yea for a general purpose planning system it's actually quite good, very flexible and absurdly easy to use.. kind of like virtual post-its on steroids. Lots of stuff you can put on the "back" of the cards, customize the workflow, etc etc. Very spiffy for a freebie.

Well, you already mentioned Evernote, I don't see why you wouldn't use that. It's probably the most cross-device compatible. Now that it has reminders and checklists, it's pretty functional as a project manager.

Structured properly, OneNote is actually quite a good way of managing a project - works for me anyway.
