VT? Did you mean Version Tracker? 'cause this is the vaunted MacUpdate, not that other site. Which died and was absorbed by CNET. Good riddance I say.

In general I like this app with its uncluttered approach, however, when importing excel data to produce some simple line charts (like the inverse sine curve) it produces some strange kinks in the curve which looks really odd especially as a sine curve is supposed to be nice and smooth. Increasing the number of data points doesn't necessarily help either.

Datagraph does a nice job but is pricy.

@CKM. bar graphs and pie charts are both used for quantitative relationships. graph term and chart term are used interchangeably as well

next thing you'll say that it doesn't do plots cause the name of the program has the word graph in it. its surprising you got 4 points for your idiotic explanation.

Wow! This app is so intuitive. I wish Numbers could be this way. (For that matter Excel).
It is innovative and raises the bar for data visualization. Um, data visualization for the rest of us! And,... the price is right! Even as a beta it proved to be stable. My guess is Omni still has some more features to add, which is OK with me.

I bought it two weeks ago. No regrets. Works smooth, even being a beta. I work with sheets with more than 2k lines, and the plot here happens. Faster and more beautiful than using Numbers. I am excited about the software evolution. I hope it keeps the track. I recommend it.

I am wondering to buy this software, but 30 bucks! sounds expensive, once OmniGraffle is a more complete software, even iWork with all the features. Well, let's see. Omni do a good job always. To me is one of the best software-houses, and this software shows potential. But it is expensive at moment.

I demo'd graph sketcher about a month ago and absolutely and was so impresssed that I ended up purchasing it within the hour. Yesterday I received a free upgrade for OmniGraphSketcher, and although it's very similiar to GraphSketcher, the upgrades are mostly tweaks that enable quicker graphing by way of shorter-shortcuts. I use this software while taking in-class econ notes, meaning this software is fast and user friendly enough where I can create graphs as quick as the teacher can put them on the blackboard. I can't even tell you how much easier it is to comprehend these graphs as opposed to the dozens of pencil-drawn messes in my spiral notebook when reviewing!

Thanks for the reply. I am really encouraged to test - I will do it this weekend. Omnigroup is very gentle and attentive. This software looks great, but unfortunately, as I said, a little bit expensive to me. I hope it keeps evolving and more integrated with iWork (specifically Numbers).

I absolutely love this fantastic little program. I am a Math instructor and it is incredibly easy to make graphs for lectures and exams in literally seconds, and they look great to boot! With an educational license the price is a steal too!

Finally I found why this version is crashing when launched. The problem is an incompatibility with Default Folder. I just add it to the excluded application in Default Folder and everything is working perfectly. May be the developer could check why it's incompatible with Default Folder

Specifically designed for reports, presentations, and problem sets where you need to produce sharp-looking graphs on the fly, OmniGraphSketcher combines the data plotting power of charting applications with the ease of a basic drawing program.

Add as many lines as you like to represent goals, cutoffs, or other boundaries. Shade in areas, connect and align objects, and add labels anywhere on the graph as you go. Enter data visually with a click of the mouse, and if your data is already in a spreadsheet or database program, just copy and paste it right into OmniGraphSketcher.

OmniGraphSketcher has an intuitive and simple interface so that you can quickly find what you want, while behind-the-scenes algorithms take care of all the details. It's an ideal solution for anyone who needs to make plots and graphs without the hassle of using a complicated data visualization program.
