Aploris for Mac has been launched which brings the Aploris charts to Mac OS X using Office 2011. All charts including stacked and clustered bar charts, spider charts and Marimekkos are fully supported in Aploris for Mac and can be collaboratively edited with users of Aploris for Windows.
To the best of our knowledge Aploris for Mac is the first tool to bring advanced charts like Mekkos or waterfall charts and features like axis breaks, descriptive elements (growth arrows, difference indicators) or value lines to the Mac platform. Mac users can now use powerful charting features in their native Mac OS X and Office for Mac enviroment.
Due to technological differences between Office on Windows and Mac the Aploris editor opens in a new Mac window. Besides this all charting features are available and the look and feel is very similar so users of Aploris for Windows can easily adapt to Aploris for Mac.
We have developed and tested Aploris for Mac to support Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8), Lion (10.7) and Snow Leopard (10.6).
Any interested person can request a trial of Aploris for Mac and use it with Office for Mac 2011 at once.
