As luck would have it the person I gave my copy to stopped by to thank me this morning
The software is LeadingProject by csodessa, the same folks who make ConceptDraw and MindMap. I've used their other products and have found them to be very good.
You can get more information about LeadingProject at this URL http://www.leadingproject.com/en/products/project/ap_planning_software.php
The box says the product can work with Microsoft Project XML files. I say it's worth the time to give it a shot.

Hi Mr T,
I just gave a copy of a new Mac software product to a friend today. It uses MS project XML files (reads and writes). I'll get the name and try to post back with it tomorrow.
Microsoft is not going to make MS Project for the Mac any time in the near future. Not enough demand exists to make it profitable. There may be "a lot" but not enough... yet. Macs continue to gain market share, so that could change.
Meanwhile you can run MS Project in Virtual PC.
For many organizations the project gallery in Office 2004 is a sufficient tool to organize projects, although it is definately not the kind of tool someone would use who is a project manager by profession.
