Omni Group says it has released OmniGraphSketcher 1.0, having originally acquired the app as Graph Sketcher from new employee Robin Stewart. Users simply draw the graphs they want to produce, after which OGS interprets the illustration as proper data. Lines are used to indicate items such as goals and cutoffs, and appearance can be enhanced with labels, shading and various shapes.
Graphs can also be completed by importing or pasting in data from apps such as Excel, and once rendered, adjusted by clicking and dragging elements that snap to a grid. Exported files can further be saved as static images for use in areas such as notepad applications. The software runs on Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and is set at $30.
