Labs Gallery: RoamBi Uses iPhone to Turn Dull Data into Eye Candy

Mellmo's RoamBi app uses the iPhone to turn dull data into eye candy, but it won't really be sweet until the BlackBerry and other mobile platforms are supported. RoamBi imports boring table-based data and presents the most important bits in easy-to-digest visual charts. With a nod to visual presentation expert and Yale Professor Emeritus Edward Tufte, RoamBi designers have crafted some neat tricks to get the most important data onto the iPhone screen. RoamBi is available through the Apple App Store. By Cameron Sturdevant
