I am using DG now for almost all data representation and a lot of data analysis. I also like to carry only an iPad with me when going to a meeting or when travelling. Then, however, I also wish to have datagraph with me to present data or continue working on them. With nowadays rather powerful iPad hardware I am wondering if a datagraph version for iPadOS would be an option anytime soon?2 years, 6 months ago dgteamModerator
Richard – Thanks for this comment. We have been thinking about this and the more users that request this gives us more urgency to get an iPad version out.
One thing that would be helpful would be to know more about how you would use the iPad with DataGraph? More for presentation? Would it even be useful if the iPad version did not have the full capabilities of the program? Or would a viewer be useful that would allow you open files, hide commands easy or play animations but might not have all the same functionality for creating graphs.2 years, 6 months ago eric alvarezParticipant
For my part, it would be useful for me to be able to enter data in a file even if I don’t have access to all the features. Also, minimally, I would like to be able to view the graphs if I cannot modify them.2 years, 6 months ago sandriftParticipant
I would be very interested in an iPad version (I can’t imagine trying to do much of use on my iPhone).
In my case, I keep data files in Dropbox and would like to be able to analyze data on-the-go without having to bring my laptop. I don’t see being able to open, but not edit, files as being particularly useful for my own use case.
I suppose to provide more useful feedback, it would help to know what capabilities would be hardest to implement and most likely to be absent from a pared-down version.2 years, 6 months ago richardParticipant
The reason why an iPad cannot entirely replace a Mac(book) is imho not related to the hardware but rather the software. The OS gives much less freedom and especially the ‘apps’ are almost always ‘light’ versions of their desktop counterparts. Thus, a DG ‘lite’ version which may essentially be only a viewer is already sth. great and very much in line with what is available on an iPad otherwise.
However, the iPad pro together with a click-on keyboard enables full ‘pro’ tasks and then a full DG version is the perfect software! With a click-on keyboard also the UI issue may be resolved, it could be used just the same way as the macOS version.
To conclude: I would (a) use/buy as an immediate solution a viewer/presentation app now (datagraph lite), and (b) wish for the full datagraph program on iPadOS to be used with a click-on keyboard/trackpad on the long run.
