MacUpdate desktop attempts to match this to "Prism Video Converter" from NCH software – and it has been doing this for a long long time.

I have no comment on this Statistical Package unfortunately.

This is simply the best scientific graphing program for the Mac. I have been using it for many years now to create figures for my publications, and to perform basic statistics on my data. There is one thing, though, that Prism cannot do, and that is 3D graphs. Sometimes data have more dimensions than you can display in 2D, which would best be shown in 3D to show all available information in one graph; other programs can do that naturally, even Excel. Examples for such data are flow cytometry cell cycle profiles at different time points or after different treatments, which give one curve per time point or treatment, and which can best be compared when displayed in one graph. Or bar graphs showing the measurement of one parameter in different cell lines over time or at different temperatures.
I have contacted the developer with this feature request, but he - although he replied quickly and was very friendly - did "not understand your comment about 3D adding "more information" to bar graphs" and thus is very unlikely to add this valuable feature in a future release.

One additional note: Prism 6.0e is shown here on MacUpdate as a new update of May 31, 2014. This is not correct. This update was actually released Mar. 24, 2014.

Just the best graphic application for the Mac.
Fitting equations its just easy and simple to use.
Prism is a pleasure to use.

Besides the graphic features you can also use it to do some ANOVAS, etc.

Costumer support is also excellent.

Actually, the application is poorly characterized here. It is a statistical package. It does a lot more than just regressions.

I couldn't find how to submit an updated description or report the issue :-\

By far the best and easiest to use statistical package I've found. A must have for biological research!

The Macupdate Desktop app tries to update the Mozilla app http://prism.mozilla.com/ (which makes standalone apps from web sites) with the one shown here on this page. They have the same name but they are not the same. Perhaps there's another way to differentiate?

We are working on an update that will address mis/matching applications that share the same name.
