Tableau Launches Vizable, A Breakthrough Mobile App for Data Exploration

Free iPad App Makes Data Analytics Fun and Accessible to More People


Singapore – October 21, 2015
Tableau Software
(NYSE: DATA) today announced Vizable, an entirely new mobile application designed to help people see and understand data with just an iPad. Tableau Vice President of Mobile and Strategic Growth, Dave Story, unveiled the app at the 2015 Tableau Conference in Las Vegas.

With Vizable, Tableau brings fun and approachable data analysis to even more people. The free iPad app makes it possible to explore data by using gestures such as pinching, swiping and dragging, allowing people to sculpt data into visualizations in seconds.

Tableau has already put Vizable in the hands of a number of businesses and organizations who previously had data and questions, but no easy tool to answer those questions. They now find insights to drive and improve their business, even while they’re on the go.

“We started with a food truck, so the very nature of our business is mobile,” said Roz Edison, owner of Marination, a Hawaiian-Korean fusion cuisine business with one food truck and two restaurants in Seattle. “Since we’ve started using Vizable, if someone asks me how Marination is doing this week, I can pull out my iPad, start swiping and dragging my cash register data, and boom! It’s that easy.”

“There is no great app to see and understand a spreadsheet visually, using only a tablet,” said

Story. “This is an incredibly common scenario. Whether you’re a teacher with students’ test data, a small business with the day’s sales, a cyclist with ride stats, or an executive with the past hour’s web site traffic – Vizable brings analytics to more people by engaging them with their data like never before.”

Vizable is ideal for people with personal or business data they want to analyze. The first version works with data in CSV files and Excel (xls or xlsx) files. Visualizations created in Vizable can be shared with friends and colleagues through email, instant message, or social media.

Vizable is currently available worldwide in the Apple iTunes store in English. It supports data in many international formats today, and will be translated to other languages in the future.

Wishbone’s unique Y-shape is designed for better viewing angles, to be read at a 45° angle which is the most natural viewing angle for human eyes.

This feature is particularly helpful for parents monitoring their baby’s recovery from illness and for couples that are trying to conceive by tracking female body temperature to help identify ovulation periods. Particularly helpful, is the function to create profiles for individuals to separate and track each person’s data, allowing for systematic recording and monitoring of slight fluctuations in individual temperatures. Wishbone is the perfect companion to mothers and mothers-to-be.

#OPPO Extends Smartphone Warranty to 24 Months

There is no typo on the above headline! With effective from 1 June 2015, OPPO will double its smartphone warranty to 24 months.

In view of the stiff competition in the smartphone market, OPPO aims to stand against her competitors by instilling confidence to consumers on her products’ high quality build and design.

The durability tests for the N3’s swivel camera involve 100,000 rotations, or up to seven years of regular use, and both the R5 and N3 smartphones are subjected to drop tests from twice the height of standard tests.

Said Sean Deng, Managing Director of OPPO Singapore, “At OPPO, we take pride in giving the best to our consumers. This obsession to deliver only high quality innovative products and after-care services is the foundation of our brand. The warranty extension is another testament to that obsession.”

 

In addition to the overall warranty for smartphones, the one-for-one phone exchange period for consumer has also been extended. Compared to the seven days industry norm, OPPO’s new warranty will allow consumers up to 30 days to perform one-for-one exchanges.

 

The one-for-one exchange is valid for OPPO smartphones that suffer from hardware malfunction due to manufacturing defects, and the applicable warranty period will be based on the phone’s original date of purchase.

 

The exchange does not cover hardware failure caused by physical damage such as water damage, deliberate damage to the device’s structure, damage caused by the use of non-OPPO accessories, cosmetic damage, external accidents or fires.

 

Network, software system or ROM malfunctions, accessories-related damage, and loss or damage of stored personal data are also not covered by the exchange policy.

 

However, OPPO is also offering a one-time free-of-charge repair service for phones that have incurred accidental damage within the first year of the phone’s purchase, which is also a service currently exclusive to OPPO. Similar terms and conditions also apply to the repair service, which exclude, among other factors, the free replacement of parts for surface coatings designed to diminish over time, or cosmetic damage due to normal aging of the product.

 

The new warranty policy only applies to OPPO’s new range of products purchased from 1 June 2015.

 

OPPO smartphones are available at the OPPO Concept Store in Suntec City Mall, Singtel and M1 outlets, and other authorized retailers islandwide. Consumers can head over to the OPPO Concept Store for all matters pertaining to phone repairs and customer service enquiries.

 

Video: #Samsung Unveil The History of #Galaxy S Series of #Smartphones

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to the world on March 1 it was a pivotal moment for Samsung’s series of smartphones under the Galaxy S label. With the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge, the company has taken smartphone design to new heights, continuing the Galaxy S tradition of delivering ingenious, mold-breaking design that is innovative, eye-catching and simply beautiful.

Galaxy S6 and S6 edge aren’t invincible, but they are capable of taking some hits – even when they fall on their sides or backs. The 6013 aluminum metal frame is designed to hit the surface before the glass upon fall to protect the display – even Galaxy S6 edge. Both Galaxy S6 and S6 edge feature Gorilla Glass 4, one of the toughest glasses available on mobile devices. Also, the components like the frame, glass, bracket, etc are structured to share the shock from first and follow-up impacts, ultimately reducing the possibility of breakage.
