Two OmniGraphSketcher Updates

by Dave on April 15, 2010

Thanks to the unpredictable timeframe of  Apple's App Store review process, today there are two new releases of OmniGraphSketcher available.

OmniGraphSketcher for iPad 1.1 is a significant update which focuses on adding data import capability and improving the user experience. Now that we've had time to use OmniGraphSketcher on actual iPads, we've adjusted the draw and fill tools to make graphing even easier and faster, and we've fixed issues affecting the document browser, graph editor, and info popovers. We've also had a chance to implement the data importing feature that is available in OmniGraphSketcher for Mac. Thanks to those of you who have patiently waited for import, and those who have provided feedback via the App Store and Email! 

Those of you running OmniGraphSketcher 1.1.1 beta 1 on the Mac may have noticed that the expiration date was fast approaching! We don't normally like to cut things this close, but developing two versions simultaneously has proved to be tricky. Beta 3 improves our Japanese and French localizations, and fixes a problem with entering Japanese text. We've also included some smaller fixes and improvements related to the iPad app. You can grab this release via our downloads page or via software update; as always please don't hesitate to email or Help > Send Feedback.

(If you're wondering what happened to beta 2, it was released and then immediately replaced due to a nasty bug)

OmniGraphSketcher 1.1.1 beta 1 is now available

by Dave on March 2, 2010

Today we took a break from iPad development and updating the website to push out the first beta of OmniGraphSketcher 1.1.1. This release includes French and Japanese localizations, as well as a fix for a pesky crash involving Undo and lots of other smaller tweaks and fixes. You get get this release via the OmniGraphSketcher downloads page; please be sure to email us (or Help > Send Feedback within the application) with any questions or feedback.

OmniGraphSketcher 1.1 is out! What's in it for you?

by Dave on December 15, 2009

This morning we released the final version of OmniGraphSketcher 1.1 via our website and software update. No matter how you use the app, we think you'll notice the improvements:

  • If you do data plots, we have a new error bars feature, better auto-scaling, a more flexible data importer (we can now deal with semicolons, pipes, and more currency symbols), and better ability to incrementally add data to an existing data series.
  • If you do economics / line graphs, we've improved line snapping, made axis titles draggable, and improved speed by implementing option-drag to copy graph elements.
  • If you do math graphs, the canvas now snaps to square grid while resizing, and we've added better support for 1-dimensional number lines. We've also improved equations for best-fit lines.
  • For everyone, we have LinkBack to help with graphs embedded in other documents,  an awesome tracing feature that makes it easier to bring in information not represented by numbers, and lots of other interface improvements and bug fixes.

We're really happy with this release and we hope you will be too - please don't hesitate to email us or use the Send Feedback item in the OmniGraphSketcher Help menu.

OmniGraphSketcher 1.1 Beta 3 is now available via the website and software update. This update features fixes for two crashes, as well as an improvement to horizontal line-snapping. We're eager to hear from users about any problems they may be having with the betas, as we're quickly nearing a 1.1 final release. Please don't hesitate to Help > Send Feedback or email.
