iPad App of the Week: Numerics – Dashboards to Visualize Your Numbers

Numerics iPad app

Great apps are a big part of what makes for a great mobile (or even desktop) device. As iPad users, we’ve been fortunate that right from the start there have been rich pickings when it comes to great iPad apps – and we continue to be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding excellent apps for just about any purpose. Our weekly picks for iPad App of the Week celebrate some of these, and appear here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Numerics – Dashboards to visualize your numbers, or just Numerics from here on out in this post.

Numerics lets you visualize numbers and statistics from a wide range of web services, social networks, and business services. Here’s a little slice of its APP Store intro:

Create your own unique dashboards from hundreds of pre-designed widgets that show a mix of website analytics, social media engagement, project progress, sales funnels, customer support queues, account balances or even numbers from your spreadsheets in the cloud – everything your business needs to monitor.
Numerics makes a direct connection between you and your services. We never see your credentials or host your data.

As iPad users, we’ve been fortunate that right from the start there have been rich pickings when it comes to great iPad apps – and we continue to be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding excellent apps for just about any purpose. Our weekly picks for iPad App of the Week celebrate some of these, and appear here every Saturday.

This week I’ve got a couple of picks, both new releases in the App Store this week and both great looking iPad wargames. They are Civil War: 1864 and Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein.

What the two games have in common, apart from their recent release dates, is that they both come from development studios with stellar track records for bringing great wargames to the iPad. Civil War: 1864 is by Hunted Cow Studios – and it’s the latest in their series of Civil War games for iPad that includes the excellent Civil War: 1863. Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein is from Shenandoah Studio, who  have already brought two great strategic wargames to the iPad: Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow.

This week’s pick is WatchESPN, an excellent app for watching live sports on the iPad.  It’s especially good to have around just now as ESPN seems to have just about every World Cup match live on one of their main channels – at least for the first week of the tournament. I’ve been watching Columbia va. Greece this morning on the app and it was great viewing.
