Lovely Charts iPad Edition now available on the App Store!



If you've looked at our different product pages, you've probably noticed the two editions of Lovely Charts are rather different...
The bottom line being: if you need a super cheap, simple, on-the-go, online solution, go for the Web app. If you're looking for something more comfortable, extensible and powerful, pick the Desktop app.
Now if you still aren't clear on which version to pick, the following table should help you out figuring out what's in and what's not for each version.
