Coda is a new type of document that blends the flexibility of documents, the power of spreadsheets, and the utility of apps into a single new canvas.
Docs, sheets, apps, data ... it's all of them.Cons:
The first demo was kinda mind-boggling. Many more people are programmers than think they are - ever put a formula into an excel doc? A3 = A1 + A2. Congrats, you are a programmer.
Part of what makes excel and spreadsheets such a universal tool is the micro-programming anyone can do and therefore incredibly powerful.
So imagine if you brought that power to everything outside of spreadsheets. And reinvented spreadsheets too.
Take micro-programming and applied it to everything, suddenly you could do what feels like magic things for a document to be able to do. Reading through a few of the other reviews, that's why non-app developers are saying things like "it's my to-do list app that I created myself".
I'm thrilled to see where the journey goes from here.John Donham has used this product for one year.
Very useful, possibly, for documentation. Great onboarding!Cons:
Still underdeveloped feature-wise. No data visualization!
Doesn't compare to Airtables in field types and formatting, and anyway both of them, without data visualization, still pale in comparison with Salesforce or Excel.Fabrizio Bianchi has used this product for one day.
