Viz - App Review

And there was me thinking that Viz no longer existed. My apologies to the publishers, the magazine is still alive and as irreverent as ever (that's a good thing).

In fact, this App has nothing at all to do with the eponymous magazine, it is 'the quickest way to create simple charts'.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Starting a new chart is simply a case of entering 2 labels and 2 quantities... and then adding as many more as required.

Now choose the type of chart from bar, pie, cloud (very appropriate nowadays), (sky)scrapers, or parliament.

Simply press 'Create Chart' and then further customise the colours (basic, forest, sky, ocean, fire) from a palette of sympathetic hues.

Once that is done you can save your chart on your iOS device, as well as send by email, or share through Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

The App costs $2.

This is a really easy way to create a chart. It is not a substitute for a sophisticated charting program, nor does it claim to be.

The App works, exactly as it should.

As ever, beware what information you share on social networking sites.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Charting for the rest of us.
