Not sure if anyone has discovered this, but I thought it nice to share with you guys.

Tables (http://www.x-tables.eu/more/overview.html) is a native universal app for OS X and for those of you using iWork and still hanging out for Apple to release the updated version of it perhaps having this is a worthwhile alternative.


With Tables you can not only organise data but also do calculations and comparisons with it. Add, sum or multiply numbers or process data by using various functions.

Data can not only represent numbers but a date or an amount, too. Tables offer extensive options to format the data. Format them as currency, as an amount, as percentage rates, scientifically or with different date formats.

Create visually attractive invoices, lists or reports and even add some photos, PDF documents or charts to present your data with a great visual impact.

You can create your own named styles in Tables to quickly assign the same formatting properties to other cells and also receive a uniform look for your document.

It's probably not as powerful as this program, but I'm pretty happy with the tables capability of Apple's Pages (http://www.apple.com/au/iwork/pages/). I use it for invoices - Pages multiplies, adds etc. I think it also does Charts.

I like Tables a whole lot, however the price tag (around $50 US) is way to steep. I barely use spreadsheets, but when I need to view one I have to rely on NeoOffice since I do not use MS Office at all (hate it). Waiting patiently for more spreadsheet apps or for Open Office Aqua to at least get into Beta status.
