Access the formatted values of fields from formulas and prevent persistent
fields from being reset with our upcoming release. Also, apps will look better
on desktops and on tablets and the app creation experience will be improved.
If your app isn't in English, your users are not getting a great experience
today: Numbers may not be formatted correctly and some messages are displayed
in English. We're working to improve this situation.
Cross-references will be available in February and calculated properties will
be available in March. Once we end the beta, pricing will likely depend on if
your app is for private or public use. Calculated properties will make your
apps considerably more powerful.
With our upcoming release, you will be able to reference fields that are part
of other panels in formulas. You will also be able to use formulas to
determine if a field is visible or a button is enabled, the color of a field,
the recipients of an e-mailed report, and more.
We launched the Calcapp beta early this year and have spent the entire year
consistently improving the service. In June, we launched a
major update with 244 formula functions, formatted numbers, a function browser,
switches, text fields, date and time fields, reworked error handling and a brand
new web site. Our August release finally made it possible
to share apps and to use them offline and improved the experience on Android
devices. The September update added drop-down fields
and hidden fields and fixed a large number of bugs.
