Designed exclusively for the iPad, Glimpse's innovative user interface allows you to iteratively create and modify graphical summaries of your data by visualizing your spreadsheet columns with different colors, sizes, labels, and orientations. Create animations by varying the data over a time or category dimension and your data comes alive before your eyes!

Glimpse brings the self-service mobile Business Intelligence revolution to your fingertips. With Glimpse, you can:

• Import data from Excel and Numbers spreadsheets, comma separated text files, or simply by copying web page tables from Safari
• Create dazzling animated presentations and display them wirelessly to an Apple TV or other iOS-enabled display (iPad 2 and higher only)
• Build your visualizations freeform, or choose from eight standard visualization templates: Pivot Table, Color Table, Heat Map, Bar Chart, Stacked Bar, Line, Scatter Plot, and Scatter Matrix
• Use the "back" button for unlimited undo, allowing you to fearlessly experiment with your data

Fantastic one of a kind

I searched for an app that would be able to give me this functionality and this was the only one I found after three days of looking. (all the others are web hosted)

Really great functionality and delivers as expected. Great for gleaning reports from my offices data sets. All reports are editable on the device (a feature not available on other apps)

Features I would LOVE and would make this tool indispensable:
- the ability to filter out unwanted information
- the ability to create more than one graph per data set
- the ability to update the data file in the background instead in re-importing and reformatting the graphs.

Thanks for the great work guys! My co-workers where amazed!

Awesom2000 Oh my god ,

Great for graphing pivot table data

Would be five stars if the export and formatting options were improved - axis labels, sizing, font control, etc, and control of what colors are used. Not immediately intuitive GUI, but after ten minutes the similarities to pivot table and pivot graphing in Xcel became obvious.

A lot of promise, but not quite ready

It's a really neat app, but with some pretty big flaws.

First, there's no way to filter data once it's in the app. So if you discover that one series or other is causing a problem there's no way to filter it or specific values (nulls, or zeros, or whatever).

Second, there's no legend for the graphs that I can find, so when you assign text values to colors, or sizes, there's no way to see what color means what.

Lastly, the app likes to forget settings on 'encodings' so you might set a field to average a value, but then it will bounce back to being a sum when you go between the columns view and layout.

It's a really neat app, but there's no way I'd rely on it to present data to others, or put it in the hands of the average executive.
