R on iOS Great

I’ve just started toying around with this and find it to be a great app.

I would like to suggest

On the “File” menu I’d like to suggest
- Add common File actions like “New”, “Save”, and “Save As...”. I know for “New” equivalent it’s possible to go to Open and create a file there but that requires multiple steps where on a normal application its a single step.

On the package area, I’d also like to suggest
- some sort of “filter” of existing packages to allow the user to find if a given package has already installed
- click on the package and get the info for the package.
- not sure how to determine if latest package is installed or not

Other Miscellaneous item
I find the short cut key to clear on input and source area, not sure how to clear he “Output” area

Super satisfied, I love it.

I’ve been working with this app for a couple months now, and I can say I am very satisfied with it. I’m able to complete small projects for work on my iPad, the convenience it provides is amazing. Customer service is also provided in a timely, polite fashion. I only have one complaint — since the R 4.0 upgrade, it takes a bit longer for packages to download than before. I used to be able to download packages within minutes (even seconds) but now there’s more of a wait time. So I recommend downloading all the packages you’ll need beforehand. However, even with that said, I still feel as though this deserves a solid 5 stars. It truly is a wonderful app.

Developer Response ,

Hello Kiarra,

Please do not worry. If you have purchased the one-time offer, you are not required to subscribe. Simply select ‘Restore Purchases’.

We have added a subscription option since the release of R 4.0 as it is becoming extremely expensive for us to maintain all the packages for all the versions.

So in your case, you won’t be charged again at all.

I’m impressed!

I use this app quite a bit for running simple R scripts and visualizations on the go...and I like it for quickly trying out new programming scripts, even some machine learning models. Notably, the Developer really cares about feedback and doing right by its customers—they are responsive! I was dissatisfied with an aspect of an earlier update and wrote a critical review of it. The developer reached out to me and quickly made arrangement to solve my concerns, and even improved my user experience in the process. I have changed my opinion—now I am a very enthusiastic supporter of both the app and the developer.
