I understand these kind of projects take time and the people capable of getting them completed, but I see on the website that PRL is listed as incomplete at 93%, as it has for some time now. Is there any estimated time for when users can hope for the project to be completed?

It is pretty much finished but the last part was going to be adding even more grammar detail for each word occurrence by incorporating the updated grammatical info from corpus.quran.com into PRL but Corpus has not been updated in a long time and may never be.

Even if it was updated I probably wouldn't have the time to oversee its incorporation but by linking to corpus this would have reduced the issue somewhat.

Look under the first few root entries under Saad to get an idea of what we were aiming for.

The next step could be to produce an app for iOS/Apple devices which would be handy but I really dislike Apple's long and costly bureaucratic process for app creation so cant be bothered dealing with it, but of course others are welcome to create one as long as its not for profit. Could put out a call for funds and just award this job to an app creation company to do for us. What do people think?

Does anyone know of an existing iOS app that is a Quran concordance/dictionary/grammar in one?

He is likely referring to:
http://www.brill.com/arabic-english-dictionary-quranic-usage

You can get it here:
https://archive.org/details/EnArabicEnglishDictionaryQuranicUsage

I recommend everyone to download it. Do not think an online link will last forever. Same with the books on here.

Another source of semantics of Quran.

It lists all the Roots, and words stemming from them that occur in Qur'aan, with their morphological specifications;

Semantic field -concept of Root; ayahs where used; plus related Roots; and link to Lane's Lexicon and classical lexicons.
