Draft+: Charts, tables and slides, all in one App!

Draft+ makes it easy to create your prototype of presentation but it is not just that…

You can use Draft+ to publish your final work too and most important, you can create professional looking slides in literally 1 minute!

The problem with “old” type of office application:
With standard office software, you usually need two or three applications to add in one slide tables and charts. You need one app to create a presentation and some other external party to generate charts or input data.
More, everytime you edit a table with some data, charts need to be formatted again, the labels need to be moved to avoid overlapping, you need to reconsider if the style of the chart or the scale used is still good enough for the space you want to allocate in the slide…

Tailored for tablets
Draft+ is developed for iPads, meaning we reduced to the minimun the steps you need to take to create an effective presentation.
It is intuitive, everything you need is just one tap away…

Work with data tables
You can add table to a slide inserting a data-cube object.
This item is a group of data information that can be easily reshaped according to your needs.
You insert the data once and after you choose the way you want to present them selecting the proper style.

When you finish inputing the data, you can choose another table style…

…or you might want to present the same table as a chart…

About the chart business
The app will add a chart series for each numeric column of the table.
The first column of the table will be used as legend entries.

Few important things to notice about the automatic chartings:

1. Series are organised in a way that will always ensure visibility of the data.
2. Colours are selected automatically starting from the main theme colour.
3. Colours are always selected to present the right contrast and visibility.
4. The labels for the values never overlaps.
5. The legend is built automatically and can be placed in different location.

Automatic Cahrts

So you have a meeting and a presentation in 30 minutes…

Have you ever been in such situation?

You are out of your office to meet a client, you’ve got your presentation ready, perfect slides, charts and suddenly your team or people from the office call and tell you that the data you are using in your charts is wrong and it needs to be changed before the meeting with the client…

You spent all the night before creating a perfect slide, adjusting the chart colours and labels to create a perfect presentation and now with the new data, everything will have to be edited again…

Chart are tricky objects…they are a powerful mean to represent information BUT, sometimes they require some estensive editing to look professional and clean.

If you have an iPad and you have installed “Draft+” this would not be a problem anymore…because this App generates automatically charts from any added table and ensure that the visibility (colours,fonts, spacing) is always the right one.

So you edit the table with the new data and with a gesture you have a professional-looking chart compliant with the theme you are using for your presentation.

If your table contains series using different metrics (integer, decimal, percentage), Draft+ will organise the series, grouping similar metrics.

Now just export the presentation in PDF and the meeting can take place smoothly…
