ODK Team Releases ODK Tables Alpha

Hello Developers,

The ODK Team is pleased to
announcehttp://opendatakit.org/2013/07/odk-team-releases-odk-tables-alpha/the
alpha release of ODK Tables.

Tables is an Android app that allows you to visualize and edit data,
revisiting existing data and syncing it up to an Aggregate instance in the
cloud. Using Tables as your entry-point to data collection, you will be
able to gather data using Collect (and eventually Survey), sync it to a
server, and have other users download and edit the data on their own
devices.

Tables supports a familiar spreadsheet view, as well as graphing and
visualizing datapoints on a map. Users can also access the data using an
HTML and javascript API. This feature allows users with web-programming
experience to develop an Android app that includes persistence and
synchronization functionality.

The APK, as well as an HTML-based app called "Tea Time in Benin," can be
installed from the downloads
sectionhttps://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/downloads/listof our
developer website. A
walk-throughhttps://code.google.com/p/opendatakit/wiki/TablesAlphaWalkThroughof
basic functionality and a guide to designing your own apps using
Tables
is also available in the wiki section of our developer website.

We would love to hear people's thoughts and suggestions, as we will
incorporate feedback into the upcoming beta and production releases.

Cheers,

Sam
