We’re excited to announce the launch of our new product, Vizable. If you’ve got an iPad, data, and questions, then Vizable is for you! Vizible is now available for free in the iTunes store. Download it, give it a spin with your data, and let us know what you think.
Some of you may remember an app called “Project Elastic” that we’ve shown over the last year. Vizable is that app’s new name. Vizable makes data analysis more fun and approachable than ever. It connects to spreadsheets right from your iPad. It supports native-touch gestures for asking and answering questions of your data. That means you can explore your data by pinching to add fields, swiping to filter, and dragging to reorder. And it’s fast! From data import to calculations and animations, we put in a lot of effort to make everything fast and fluid. We want people to delight in their data.
So why Vizable? It’s hard to see and understand data files with just an iPad. What would you do if someone asked you to do that today? There are more than one million apps available in Apple’s iTunes Store, yet there’s no great app to see and understand a spreadsheet visually, using only a tablet. That’s why we invented Vizable.
Vizable is a separate product from the Tableau product line. While you can export a CSV file from the Tableau Mobile app and open it with Vizable, the product does not otherwise connect to Tableau Server or Tableau Online directly. We anticipate tighter integration in the future. If you have an existing Tableau Server or Tableau Online account, the amazing all-new Tableau Mobile 9.1 app is the way to go—check it out if you haven’t already done so. It's fast and delightful!
The separation between Vizable and our other products was intentional and opportunistic. Today’s mobile devices are more powerful and capable than ever. We wanted to rethink data analysis in a mobile-only world. We asked ourselves how we’d design a native iOS product from scratch using all the wisdom we’ve gained through our other products. And that’s how Vizable was born! For more details about our vision, check out our new product site.
