  • 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.

  • Feature: Hidden fields

    If you have spent any length of time developing apps with Calcapp, you have likely found yourself having to include the same formula fragments in many different formulas. If you need to convert an input number to a different unit before using the converted number in three different formulas, you need to include the conversion logic three times.

  • Bug report: Improvements in Calcapp Connect and in shared apps

    Since releasing our last update, we have spent a few weeks fixing bugs in Calcapp Connect, meaning that running the apps you build is now a better experience with far fewer glitches. These changes are already part of our production version, meaning that you don’t have to wait for these fixes to arrive, they’re available today.

  • Feature: Offline support

    Our upcoming release has two major features, the first of which we wrote about yesterday: the ability to share apps with others. The other notable feature is that shared apps work even when you don’t have access to the Internet, like on airplanes or in rural areas with poor cellular coverage. Offline support has consistently been one of the most popular requests from our users and we’re happy we’re now able to provide it.
