An Apple software developer has released LabMathX, a Cocoa-based application for scientific analysis, calculations, and visualization of laboratory data as well as theories. The software is written in Objective C and compiled as a Universal Binary to offer native compatibility with Intel-based Macs. LabMathX offers drag-and-drop support for entering equations as well as program calculations, displaying data tables or labels, and entering simple commands or definitions. The application comes with a complete user manual, 'QuickStart' guide, and examples. Users can clear previous values in code, specify initial conditions or parameters, specify a custom step size, write usual dynamical equations in a second text sub-window, and more. LabMathX is available for $70 and requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
