Top Infographic Apps for iOS
When presenting data, there is no device better suited to showcasing your information in a visually stunning way than your iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac.
The popularity of information graphics is on the rise, and they’re beginning to creep up on users of the App Store just as much as they are our Twitter feeds and other social sharing platforms.
So, whether you want to express your love of the solar system while listening to your favourite tracks, or check-up on the healthcare status of the US, chances are there’s an app for that!
Whatever data you’ve got your hands on, turn it into visually-stimulating and interactive charts with a little help from ShinobiCharts. The iOS software has recently been joined by its Android counterpart, and offers a sublime selection of charting and graph-making tools to make your data come to life.
It’s simple to use straight from the box, and comes with many pre-installed designs to wow the bosses or just amuse yourself in your downtime. All data is real-time, so your chart updates manually.
Stats of the Union
What you do with this information is up to you, but the way this app displays data sure is pretty. Presented as a merge of statistics from the Department of Health & Human Services, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Labor and the US census, all information was based on findings in the collaborative report known as the Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI).
The use of colour scale, percentages, demographics and map view makes the abundance of information very easy to digest, kudos Ben Fry.
Why watch the linear movement of your song when your track can orbit a planet? That’s exactly what developers Bloom Inc. must have thought of when developing their Planetary app for iOS.
The artists = stars, albums = planets and tracks = moons layout is a bit tricky to get your head around initially, but the overall representation of your music library is a stroke of genius. It certainly makes you think of how else your music files can be organised…what’s next, an under the sea version with artists as starfish, albums as shells and tracks as fish?!
