Description for Wizard Pro

Wizard is a new Mac app that makes data analysis easier than ever. No programming, no typing — just click and explore. Wizard includes a full set of tools for doing professional research, yet its friendly interface makes statistics accessible to beginners. (This is the Pro version; if you don't need the features marked PRO below, check out the standard version, also on the App Store. Note that PRO features are also available as In-App Purchases from the standard version.) ⁓⁓⁓ Featured by Apple! "New and Noteworthy" and "@Work: Apps for Business" ⁓⁓⁓ "You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK) It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including... QUICK VISUALIZATIONS Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second. EASY STATISTICAL MODELING Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications. MAC FRIENDLINESS Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started. DATA TRANSFORMATIONS Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more. EXPORT EXCELLENCE Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

Reviews of Wizard Pro

  • Great app for quick analysis and visualization

    By NickCinti
    Wizard Pro is a great app for quick analysis and visualization. For someone who's used many other commercially available statistical packages as well as R, Wizard works a bit differently than they do, but the results are consistent. Definitely a go to app for stats on the Mac.
  • Great

    By EAS2017
    Best combination of ease of use and power I’ve found. Particularly good for people with basic stats knowledge, but not a phd. Keep up the good work!
  • First look: great for previews, prelim analysis and simple models...

    By Chakosz!
    Just met this application and I find it impressive! It is brilliant for reviewing data - particularly for looking at the distribution of values within variables. Basically for prepping for data analysis. Also looks to be great for descriptive analyses and everyday regression modeling. Have not tried anything sophisticated, so cannot speak to that yet...
  • Excellent program for data review/what if questions

    By NCSU Air Quality
    I can only support the many positives already stated for this software. What you quickly learn is that while other software can do the graphical displays, there is a lot of behind the scenes calculations being done and ready at the click of a mouse for easy viewing. This saves a lot of “steps” in reviewing/processing data. Many features of true GUI are also an inherent part of the software. In combination with data filters, you can use the click/Shift key combination we all use in Mac OS to look at subsets of data on the fly. The other aspect that needs mentioning is that the software is “fast”, which really impressed my PC users who program in R. My exerience has been in using Wizard Pro. If you don’t need the extra import capabilities, then Wizard should serve the needs of most users who store/process data in EXCEL. I personally feel the software is very reasonably priced given the current range of costs of simple data graphing programs all the way up to annual contracts for programs like JMP on the Mac OS platform.
  • Simple

    By eyedoc-rwa
    Did non-parametric analysis on Excel data with results in less than 15 minutes first time out. Nice teaching module. Pretty good and quick graphics export. Less than $1400 for year. Thanks. Alaska. .
  • Take it for a trial run...

    By PrometheusMT
    Wizard is a wonderful tool for the statistical neophyte, acolyte, or, dare I say, wizard. It is intuitive and extremely fast, providing the user with complex analyses of large datasets as quickly as you can determine the variables of interest. The support forums are particularly helpful if questions arise and the developer is wonderfully responsive. It is an elegant application...
  • What a lifesaver!

    By wittykitty77
    This app is the best program you can use run user-friendly regressions. Beyond that the instant analysis of so many perspectives of the data is immensely helpful. I plan on using it in the future for both professional and academic projects.
  • Outstanding Application

    By Jose Bevilacqua
    I am a physician and I have PhD in statistics. I believe this is one of the most interesting statistical software I’ve ever seen in recent years. It is very intuitive. It should be useful from beginners to experts in statistics. It allows us to explore and “feel” our data in such an impressive way! The graphics are amazing! I love statistical modeling and it also allows us to build predictive formulas and play with them with just a few clicks. VERY VERY IMPRESSIVE!
  • Intuitive, easy to use and great way to get insights into your data

    By UNSC Bacon
    Wizard Pro is a great tool for analyzing data - for novice users to those with a background and deep understanding of statistics. The tutorial is great and helps you easily get started. The developer is very responsive and updates the software frequently.
  • Engineer and Marketer’s Best Friend

    By BruceXY
    This is the tool you need if you have to estimate causal factors or model a competitor’s pricing and you don’t have 3 weeks to get up to speed on how to use R. The tool provides easy to use data entry, let’s you choose your factors, and do the curve fitting you’d like to do very quickly. A huge feature is the interactive tutorial that walks you through an example that is probably not too different from just what you need to do for your 3PM meeting with the boss. No BS, just right to the numbers. If you can’t get this to work for you, it’s time to change your clothes and start throwing trash for a living.
  • Great App for Reviewing and Analyzing Data Sets

    By FooledAgainAndAgain
    I'm by no means a statistician, and we do not heavily use the statistical features in Wizard Pro, so I won't speak strongly to them, but Wizard Pro provides a ton of functionality for accessing, reviewing, manipulating, and analyzing data sets. The main reason I acquired it was to crack open SPSS .SAV data sets without having to turn to something as non-mac'y and relatively unfriendly as most of the SPSS utilities out there (some of which do run on Mac). Wizard Pro is intuitive, easily opens all of this stuff, and enables pretty well rounded manipulation, export, etc. For example, we work with large survey data sets routinely. The typical survey platforms - Survey Monkey, Survey Gizmo - provide export of data in a variety of formats, but the SPSS data is usually the cleanest and most useful. Just recently, we ran into an issue with CSV data from these tools having goofy text encoding which was seriously messing with our ability to use Excel (we still use Excel for some more complex charting). Wizard Pro gave us the ability to export the SPSS binary SAV file into CSV without character issues, and cleaned this right up. Meanwhile, when we have one of these data sets, Wizard Pro's summary display is the best and fastest way to peruse results (with a graphical display and the ability to look at data in several ways) and then the Filter functionality on the Summary screen essentially allows us to crosstab and investigate results before we formally cross tab data for charting. Meanwhile, once we've identified some crosstab opportunities, the pivot table functionality allows for easy crosstab creation. So while Wizard Pro provides great statistical functionality once we start analyzing and drawing conclusions from data, it is actually this rapid, easy, and visual exploration functionality I value far more - and Wizard Pro pays for itself many times over as far as I'm concerned.
  • Genius and pain releifing application.

    By Govandbio
    Thank you for this impressive piece of software.
  • Outstanding software and Outstanding support!

    By apocalypticBiker
    I've only been using this software for a couple of weeks now but have found it to be very intuitive and user friendly. I am not a power user of pivot tables, so I have avoided them for years. With Wizard Pro it does all of the heavy lifting for me and makes pivot tables and statistical analysis a breeze. The introductory walkthrough was above excellent, and put to rest a number of my apprehensions about the using the software. I am not statistician by any stretch of the imaganintion, but this software makes me one!! When I first installed the software I ran into an issue of older XLS files causing the program to crash. I sent a crash report to the developer and literally within an hour I received a reply letting me know they were working on solution. Within a few hours of the initial contact I had a solution sent to me, and was up and running! This version 1.2.1 has the XLS problem resolved in it, so it's clear sailing for me now! I have NEVER had a developer respond so quickly and take ownership of a problem and resolve it like Evan Miller did. Kudos to the development team!
  • Perfect For Me

    By Sandi Glenn
    I've looked for something like this for a long time. It's quick, easy, very intuitive, and perfect for the desktop environment. The developer is great to work with and relentless in resolving issues. The upgrades are awesome and I expect there are many more to come.
  • Great for quick but rigorous survey analysis

    By heliostatic
    I've started using Wizard Pro for survey analysis, and find it much more pleasant than SPSS. It's been a great tool for exploring and modeling my survey data.
  • Perfect for my needs

    By The GameJew
    I needed a quick and easy way to anaylze and view a bunch of data. This app suit my needs PERFECTLY and the developer is very responsive to questions and help. AWESOME>
  • Awesome start and great teaching tool

    By smartmediacreative
    I really was shocked at how good this is right from the start. The onboarding tutorial is terrific. The interactive GUI is going to make this awesome for using in presentation and as a teaching tool as well. I was just getting ready to run a bunch of categorical models, and I'm going to give this a shot as my primary toolset.
