  • Feature: Insert field names in formulas easily

    With our upcoming release of Calcapp Creator, editing formulas will become more convenient. In particular, you will be able to insert the names of your fields simply by clicking on them while editing formulas. When you’ve reached a spot in your formula where it makes sense to enter the name of a field (such as after you’ve typed “+” or the name of a function plus an opening parenthesis), your fields will turn purple to indicate that you can click them to insert their names at the caret position. If you’re used to spreadsheets, this should be familiar.

  • Introducing Calcapp and our new website

    Today we’re excited to launch a new website for Calcapp, which includes learning resources, this blog and an opportunity to sign up for our preview release. Our aim with Calcapp is to allow you to create calculator apps using the skills you’ve already honed when creating spreadsheets.

  • Unveiling Calcapp Creator

    The first preview version of Calcapp Creator is nearing completion. It will allow people to leverage their spreadsheet skills to build calculator apps for iPhone/iPad and Android devices, as well as Windows and Mac desktops and the open Web. The first preview version will only allow web apps to be built, though, and the feature set will be limited compared to what we hope to deliver in the future. Once we release the preview version, we need your help to guide us in the right direction, to help us prioritize features and ensure that we build a product that solves your problems and meets your requirements.
