Explore and present your spreadsheet data through dynamic visualizations with Glimpse. 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!

Discover trends and patterns hidden inside your data through visual exploration and experimentation. When rows and columns of raw numbers and text are aggregated and represented visually, patterns and trends can be quickly spotted and outliers can be immediately identified. 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
• Explore your data without needing to upload your spreadsheet files to third-party sites; your private data remains encrypted and secure on your iPad
• Share images and PDFs of your visualizations via Mail, Twitter, and iTunes File Sharing, or send them to your AirPrint-enabled printer

Glimpse is a stand-alone product and does not require any additional desktop or server software, or registering for an online account. Watch a brief video demonstration of the app at
