  • Feature: Multiple lines in text fields

    Our November update will enable text fields to feature multiple lines. That may not seem all that significant, but has some interesting implications which we’ll explore in this post.

  • Sprinting toward the finish line

    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.

  • Feature: Persistent fields

    We’re hard at work on a major update, one that will enable cross-references between panels, allowing one panel to reference fields on another panel. That work entails making major changes to how Calcapp works under the hood. As a result, that work won’t be ready for our November update.

  • Feature: Reporting improvements

    Support for sending data collected by an app through e-mail or directly to a server you run was introduced in our October update. Based on feedback from you, we have tweaked some aspects and added a number of options. These features have been available since the beginning of November, meaning that you can use them straight away.

  • Suppressing error values in shared apps

    Have you ever created an app using Calcapp only to find that your app displays error values in red? These error values are there to help you diagnose formula errors, but look unprofessional in apps you distribute to end users. As such, error values won’t show up in shared apps once we release our October update.

  • Feature: Keyboard shortcuts

    Our October release improves Calcapp Creator’s support for keyboard shortcuts. We have tried to focus on common-sense shortcuts that will make using the product easier for all users. For instance, to navigate between fields, press the up and down buttons on your keyboard. To move from editing the caption of a field to editing its formula, simply press Enter – and then press Enter to move back to the field. Move to the panel preceding the panel you’re currently editing by pressing Ctrl-Left and to the panel following the current panel by pressing Ctrl-Right. There are also shortcuts for creating new items, deleting and moving them and for quickly moving to the inspector and back again.
