Whoa, this looks really awesome. I hate the lack of context when I send people Excel spreadsheets... more often than not, I want the ability to call out certain information (while allowing someone to check my work if they want to). This seems perfect!

@gkoberger Agree, Excel's interface of an infinite grid is terrible for entering a contextual narrative. Data and text are inseparable and it's high time for a more flexible and human-friendly solution.
Oh wow, we're planning our wedding now and have all the numbers in mac notes, so have to change total values each time manually. This one could help!

@neelkadia there are plans to open source Reactivepad's text editor, so it would be something like TinyMCE or CKEditor but with spreadsheet capabilities.
