Tableau unveils Vizable mobile app for data exploration
The free iPad app makes it possible to explore data by using gestures such as pinching, swiping and dragging, allowing people to sculpt data into visualizations in seconds.
Tableau Software has announced Vizable, an entirely new mobile application designed to help people see and understand data with just an iPad. Tableau Vice President of Mobile and Strategic Growth, Dave Story, unveiled the app at the 2015 Tableau Conference in Las Vegas.
The free iPad app makes it possible to explore data by using gestures such as pinching, swiping and dragging, allowing people to sculpt data into visualizations in seconds. “There is no great app to see and understand a spreadsheet visually, using only a tablet,” said Story.
Speaking on the launch of Vizable Deepak Ghodke, Country Manager India, Tableau Software said, “Tableau’s mission of helping people see and understand data is fully aligned with the Digital India initiative. In such a society that is run on data, having citizens analyse data easily and quickly by themselves will become a core skillset to have.”
Vizable is ideal for people with personal or business data they want to analyze. The first version works with data in CSV files and Excel (xls or xlsx) files. Visualizations created in Vizable can be shared with friends and colleagues through email, instant message, or social media.
Vizable is currently available worldwide in the Apple iTunes store in English. It supports data in many international formats today, and will be translated to other languages in the future.
