Numerics Business Dashboard adds features, goes freemium

I praised Numerics in a review earlier this year. The app lets you build business-oriented displays which can be easily constructed using plugins that will display data in numeric or graphic form. You can choose a variety of data sources like Google Analytics, Salesforce, Basecamp and many others.

From there, the app offers a series of templates to give you a compelling design for your data, or it can allow you to have multiple dashboards and swipe between them.

The app used to be US$19.99 but now it has moved to a freemium model. Users of the first version will get a lifetime upgrade for free. The current edition is free, but you can buy an advanced widgets pack for $9.99. Other widget packs will be sold as a one-time purchase, priced depending upon the service and kind of widgets in the pack.

The system is easy to use, and can create the kind of display that used to require specialized programming. Numerics is worth a second look, as they have added many new data sources, and now include a custom JSON integration provider that can consume and render nine unique types of widgets out of custom data from any business system with minimal programming on the business system end.

I tried creating some pages using stock prices and Google Analytics data. It's easy to do, and the results look polished. Check the app store for details on the kinds of data this app can integrate.

Numerics is a universal app, but for display would be best suited to an iPad or using AirPlay to display it on a large monitor.

Numerics requires iOS 7 or later.
