Plus, it sits on your task bar and tells you what day it is --great for older guys like me.... :)
I spent time back in the mid 80's working in several software companies that used various PM software products, and I developed a dislike of all of them -- it took more time to update the stupid charts than to do the work most of the time, but managers wanted the updated charts/graphs/lists every week. Bleah. Takes a max of 10 seconds to erase/write so the whiteboard shows the current task and overall status, takes longer than that just to get the stupid printing settings correct in the SW so your charts or whatever print out in a way you can tape them together (LOL).
Spend your money on good markers and spend your time talking with the client or your team daily, and you'll be much better off (IMHO).

what are you having problems with that you think software would help with?
It is the quantity of pages that you have to manage? The user flow and interaction between them?
I don't know if you are thinking of project mgmnt tools or software application development methodologies.
If it's proj mgmnt, to keep track of tasks, etc., you don't have time to waste of software and learning it, much less using it. You got to get paid for your time.
Use a word processor, cut, copy & paste tasks to the top or bottom of the list, reuse documents from past projects to act as templates for the next project.
