The Chart Maker

Charts in general are a great way to communicate information visually. Especially in times where the amount of produced data raises from day to day and information gets more complex. The Chart Maker is an Android App which allows you to create, design and share your own charts within minutes.  We are constantly updating the app to release new features and integrate new chart-types. Currently the Chart Maker supports the creation of five different chart-types:

  • Bar charts
  • Line charts
  • Pie charts
  • Radar charts
  • Bubble charts

It is perfectly suitable for business charts and professional reporting. With its intuitive design and controls the Chart Maker is the best Android App for mobile chart creation.

 

Bar chart

Bar scharts are a great way to communicate information visually. Especially if you have comparative information that you would like to illustrate with a chart. The bar chart is one of the most known options when it comes to charts, because it is easy to understand. These charts are useful for displaying data that is classified into nominal or ordinal categories. A bar graph will always have two axes. One axis will generally have numerical values, and the other will describe the types of categories being compared. The x-axis normally represents the different categories and accordingly has no scale. In order to emphasize the fact that the categories are discrete, sometimes a gap is left between the bars on the x-axis. The y-axis does have a scale and this indicates the units of measurement.

Some good examples of bar charts can be seen on the images all over the website. There are simple bar charts while some others are more complex, since they contain limit lines or their data is grouped in categories. The Android Chart Maker allows you to create simple and even complex bar charts within minutes.

Line chart

Line chart

A line chart is a great way to communicate information visually – commonly used to display a change over time with a series of data points. These data points are often connected by a line, which is also the reason for the title “Line chart”. Line charts are useful in that they show data variables and trends very clearly and can help to make predictions about the results of data not yet recorded. A line chart always has two axes and is drawn so that the independent data are on the horizontal axis (e.g. time) and the dependent data are on the vertical y-axis. There are a lot of options for the axes and both of them can be labeled individually.

Within the android chart maker app a line chart can have one or more datasets/lines. The lines can be drawn dashed, cubic and colored.  When comparing data sets, line graphs are only useful if the axes follow the same scales. Even if the app allows more, it is recommended to have not more than four lines on a single graph – any more than that and it becomes difficult to interpret.

The free version is for users who want to test the app and evaluate if it can fit their needs. The free version contains all chart-types, features and style-options. The only difference to the pro version is a limitation in the maximum count of values and datasets.

Purchasing the pro version removes this limitation and correspondingly allows you to create more complex charts with an unlimited amount of values and datasets. Furthermore your requests for new features and help will be processed by priority.

You always start with the free version and if you like the android chart maker, you can unlock the pro version within the app by tapping on the key-symbol in the action bar of your android device.

 

 

Pie chart

Pie charts are the best visual way of illustrating data that shows the relative contribution of different categories to an overall total. Every wedge of the whole circle represents each category’s contribution, such that the graph resembles a pie that has been cut into different sized slices. Every percent of contribution that a category contributes to the overall total corresponds to a slice with an angle of 3.6 degrees.

Although the android chart maker allows you to create pie charts with unlimited categories/values, it is recommended to only display data for around six categories or fewer. When there are more categories it is more difficult for the eye to distinguish between the relative sizes of the different sectors and so the pie chart becomes hard to interpret. The Android Chart Maker offers you a lot of style-options to individualize your pie chart. Some good examples of pie charts can be seen on the attached images.

Radar chart

Radar chart

A radar chart is a graphical method of displaying multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart of three or more quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. This description is very complicated to understand, so let us make things easier: Imagine you want to buy a new TV and have two or more products in mind which you need to compare in different aspects like screen size, resolution, energy consumption and so on. A radar chart is the best way to illustrate such information graphically. Every category is represented through one axis and every product through one dataset.

The Android Chart Maker offers you a quick and easy way to create such radar charts and style them in the way you want. Although the Android Chart Maker allows you to create radar charts with unlimited categories/values, it is recommended to only display data for around six categories or fewer, so that the chart does not get too overloaded. A good example of a radar chart can be seen on the corresponding image.

Bubble chart

A bubble chart is a type of chart that displays three dimensions of data. Bubble charts can be considered as a variation of the scatter plot with the data points replaced by bubbles, which represent the data-value of the third dimension with their individual size. The other two dimensions are illustrated by the x-axis and the y-axis as normal.

The most known use case for bubble charts is the portfolio analysis, which is used to categorize the portfolio of a company by market-share, growth-rate and gross sales. The Android Chart Maker offers you a quick and easy way to create such bubble charts and style them in the way you want. A good example of a radar chart can be seen on the corresponding image.

And most important: Have fun with our app!
