Numerics for the Apple Watch is here!

April 14, 2015 / no comments

Over 5 months ago we started ideating and designing Numerics for the Apple Watch and today we are happy to announce that it is finally live on the App Store.


Ever since Numerics was conceptualized, we believed that its benefits would best manifest on a wearable device. At its heart, Numerics keeps you aware of your key performance indicators – your sales today, number of tasks for the day, your marketing effort’s performance or any other metric that matters most to you. The quick micro interactions with the watch are perfect for consumption of the bite sized information presented by Numerics. And for a lot of practical, day to day use cases, the quick accessibility and availability of your KPIs on your wrist could make all the difference between knowing them at a critical time or ignoring them completely.

So when Apple announced the Apple WatchKit, we set out on our journey to design a killer app for the Apple Watch and hoped to align its release with the launch of the Watch itself. Because, what is a smart watch without a great app that drives the user to strap it on everyday.

The Apple Watch is simply not an iPhone on your wrist, instead it is a companion to the iPhone. It is designed to provide the user with condensed glanceable information that can be consumed quickly via micro interactions. Since the invention of wristwatches, people have been glancing at them to track time; a changing number thats universally important to everyone. We believe the logical step for a smart watch is to enable its user to track other changing numbers that are more personal and uniquely relevant to the user. So we set out with a mission to design a unique personal experience for Numerics on the Apple Watch to help our users better engage with their important numbers.

While the Apple Watch comes with some limitations of smaller screen size, battery life and computing power. We have designed Numerics in a way that it takes advantage of the benefits of the new technologies of the Apple Watch and fundamentally extends its applicability. Continue Reading…

Track-KPIs-on-Apple-Watch

Since the invention of wristwatches in the 19th century, people have been glancing at them to track time; a changing number thats universally important to everyone. We believe the logical step for a smart watch is to enable its user to track other changing numbers that are more personal and uniquely relevant to the user.

As the core aim of Numerics is to aggregate and present numbers and business performance indicators relevant to its user from any possible source, presenting these numbers on smart watches and wearables has been a part of the plan since conceptualisation. A wearable smartwatch is the perfect extension to Numerics. The quick micro interactions with the watch are perfect for consumption of the bite sized information presented by Numerics. And for a lot of practical, day to day use cases, the quick accessibility and availability of your KPIs on your wrist could make all the difference between knowing them at a critical time or ignoring them completely.

Ever since the Apple Watch rumours started doing the rounds on the web in mid 2014, all of us at Cynapse have been excitedly dreaming about getting our key performance indicators on our wrists. On the day Apple announced the availability of the Watch Kit SDK for developing apps for the Apple Watch, the Numerics team dived right in!

We have always believed that an app experience has to be completely re-ideated and redesigned for each device platform it works on. In the last 5 months we have been very secretly hard at work in creating what we believe is going to be one of the most useful apps for the Apple watch. And we are very excited to reveal our newest creation today: Numerics for the Apple Watch. Continue Reading…

Quick Update: Numerics v2.1.1 now live

February 23, 2015 / no comments

Numerics-v2-1-1Numerics v2.1.1 is now available globally on the App Store. This release fixes issues with some of the Trello widgets, the Chargify integration and some more.

Numerics v2.1 introduced Trello integration enabling its users to get a statistical overview of the work getting done in Trello right on their iPhones or iPads. With 23 pre-designed widgets, Trello on Numerics presents some great insights in intuitive pie charts, funnel lists and number tallies.

Some widgets in the Trello Board Stats widget pack would fail if the Trello board had un-named labels. This has been fixed in v2.1.1. If you have a blank label in your Trello boards, Numerics will now ignore it and present totals and numbers based on labels that are named. Also, for the widgets that require users to choose the label, Numerics will not let you choose a blank label anymore.

Get Numbers from Trello with Numerics v2.1

January 8, 2015 / no comments

Over 6 months ago, we moved to using Trello boards to manage our product development. The open endedness of Trello boards enabled us to quickly create and manage boards for our product release cycles, customer feedback, product roadmap and more. We soon had over 20 boards each buzzing with lots of lists and carefully crafted cards.

The team is loving it, but we had one issue. There was no easy way to get a statistical overview of the work getting done on Trello. We realized this must be an issue for a large number of  Trello users. As creators of Numerics we decided to integrate with Trello so it’s users worldwide using iOS devices can track and share their metrics. Today we’re excited to release Numerics v2.1 with Trello integration.

Track Trello Stats on iPad with Numerics Dashboard

Numerics v2.1 adds 4 Trello widget packs – Personal Stats, Organization Stats, List Stats and Board Stats – with 23 pre-designed widgets giving you some great insights presented in intuitive pie charts, funnel lists and number tallies. Continue Reading…
