    What is the difference between Tableau mobile and Vizable

    Fei Yu

      Hi All,


      I never used both of them, all I know is they are both for mobile device. I have googled this and nothing can be found.

            As per my knowledge Tableau mobile is available on for both Android as well as IOS environment but Vizable is currently only available for IOS

              Hi Fei,


              In brief:


              Vizable is a free iPad app that turns your data into beautiful, interactive graphs. The Vizable product is a great solution for ad hoc offline analysis on an iPad using row and column based data saved in CSV, XLS, or XLSX file formats. Currently there is no way to connect Vizable to Tableau Server.


              Tableau Mobile is a free iPad app that you can download from the App Store. Use it to explore and share views published to your Tableau Server version 8.2–9.1, or to Tableau Online. Browse snapshots of views you add to Favorites even when you’re not connected to the internet.

                Vizable - only on iPad, the user has the data and build their own viz's


                Tableau Mobile - any tablet (ie not phones, but can be iOS or Android), leverages what's been built in Desktop and uploaded to Server.
