We know our users love using Numerics on large screens. So we have been working really hard behind the scenes to design a unique new experience for the iPad Pro and are proud to announce its availability along with Apple’s launch of the awesome iPad Pro.
We are excited to announce today, a huge Numerics update with support for the iPad Pro’s large screen and various optimizations for multi-tasking on the new device. With Numerics v4.2, we’re introducing a brand new Markup feature to annotate dashboards with support for the Apple Pencil.
The iPad Pro’s big screen and big processing power allows a much better user experience for Numerics, while multi tasking and the Apple Pencil enable unprecedented collaboration features that we think you will fall in love with!
Numerics v4.2, also adds 3D Touch Support for iPhone 6s & iPhone 6s Plus and integrates with a new service – Intercom, to bring in your customer interaction and acquisition statistics into Numerics.
Here’s a detailed look at the new features and enhancements in Numerics v4.2:
Optimized for iPad Pro’s humongous screen
Numerics has been optimized for the iPad Pro’s large canvas size. With the highest resolution Retina display, the iPad Pro’s screen fits upto 24 of Numerics’ widgets, double the number of widgets that fit on the regular iPad screen before scrolling.
This week’s new and noteworthy apps on the App Store is very special for Cynapse. Our app Numerics has been chosen as one of the “Best New Apps” by Apple.
We are ecstatic and honored to be featured alongside some of the best apps on the App Store. Numerics is currently being featured as a best new app in US, Canada, Australia, India, Italy, Spain, Brazil and 81 other countries.
Best of all, this feature comes right after our latest Numerics release that adds support for all the new iOS 9 productivity features and the new watchOS 2. Split View, Slide Over & Spotlight Search are now available with Numerics and the re-designed Numerics for Apple Watch introduces complications for Modular, Utility & Mickey Mouse watch faces.

To celebrate this achievement, we have dropped the price of Numerics by 50%! If you are thinking of getting the app, now is the best time!!
We designed Numerics to remove the guesswork out of the decision making process. And are constantly working to improve the way you, our users, consume and interact with your important metrics. To do this, we always like to take advantage of the latest iOS features and technologies and today, we are thrilled to announce the availability of Numerics 4.1.
Numerics 4.1 adds support for all the new iOS 9 productivity features including Split View, Slide Over and Spotlight Search. And an all new watchOS 2.0 app. Here is an in-depth overview of the key enhancements in the new Numerics version:
Multitasking with Numerics on iPad
Numerics v4.1 adds Multitasking on iPad with the Split View and Slide Over features, allowing you to use Numerics for iPad and any other app at the same time.
Numerics has been optimized for Multitasking and widgets adapt and reflow to fit each of the different split view scenarios uniquely. As a secondary app in the slide over mode, Numerics works in a fully functional compact mode and is super useful for keeping an eye on your numbers while working on other stuff.
Say you are working on a report in Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet and would like to take a quick glance into the metrics you are tracking in Numerics. Without leaving your app, you can now open Numerics with a single swipe from the right edge of the screen, peek into Numerics to see the number and then slide the app away to get back to what you were doing. It’s a really fast way to glance at your metrics without interrupting your workflow.
With the Split View, you can go a step further – work with Numerics along with any other app open and active side by side, at the same time. For example, you can have your Numerics dashboard open to take screenshots of the metrics you want to use in your weekly Keynote presentation and have your slides open alongside at the same time. You can take a snapshot of the number and simply paste the image into your Keynote slides.
We are thrilled to announce the availability of Numerics 4, the biggest update to Numerics since its release! v4 packs in 2 new powerful features – Dashboard Templates and Automatic Backups, 5 new service integrations and loads of improvements and bug fixes.
With a large number of updates to talk about, let’s dive right into the what’s new starting off with the new features.
New Feature – Dashboard Templates
Many of you have taken time to design your dashboards to track your KPIs. One of your biggest ask has been the ability to share dashboards with your teams so everyone can track their KPIs. We have been listening and have created the concept of dashboard templates that lets you design a dashboard once and deploy it across your team or organization
You can create a dashboard template from any of your existing dashboards and share it via iMessage, Email, Dropbox or any iOS communication or file handling app. The dashboard templates are designed such that no secure data or credentials are shared with the template. Just the dashboard layout and widget configurations are shared. The recipient simply taps on the dashboard template file and opens it into Numerics. A nifty import tool auto connects widgets to the recipient’s accounts and profile data. If the user doesn’t have those accounts connected already, the import tool prompts to connect new accounts. We believe the new dashboard templates provide a simple and elegant solution to numerous enterprise requirements that users have reached out with.
Phlo has been our favorite hobby project. Often called the Kayak of web search, Phlo is a nifty tool that provides the quickest and most convenient way to find what you’re looking for on any search site. You can try your search query at Google, Wikipedia, Amazon, and over 30 other built-in services, all with a single tap and no re-typing your query over and over. It synchronizes your search history & newly added sites across all devices, so you can continue your search from one device to another. By consolidating search, it saves us information addicts a whole lot of time! Phlo really is the best way to search everywhere and find exactly what you need.
Our users love it too, and many have reached out to us with requests to update the app to support the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sizes. An update has been long pending, and we are happy to finally release Phlo v3.1 especially designed to support iOS8 and for the larger screen sizes of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. With native support, Phlo is no longer zoomed in and is now able to display more search results on the bigger screen devices. Phlo will feel right at home on Apple’s new operating system.
This version also brings along some major changes. One big change is the Phlo app icon. The search loupe along with the colored stripes symbolize the essence of Phlo – when the user needs to find an answer, they shouldn’t be slowed down by the question of where to look for it. The new icon puts the search loupe in focus, is bright and is quickly spottable among other app icons on the iPhone or iPad screens. The new icon better reflects the philosophy and design principles that Cynapse lives by.
