Nimbits Data Acquisition Studio

The Nimbits Software System consists of three main interfaces:

The Portal app.nimbits.com runs on Google's App Engine and is the main interface to the Nimbits System. It is where you want to get your account setup, manage your points and categories, setup calculations, alerts compression etc. 

There is also an app you can run on your Android Based Phone. Search the Google app store for Nimbits and you can install the free App that lets you log new values and see changes in your points. Learn more here.

The third piece is a nice desktop app called Nimbits Data Acquisition Studio. This runs on Windows PC's and allows you to create points, categories, log values and see charts of your data points. It also comes with a free SDK which is a .net 3.5 dll you can use to develop your own software that can pull data from your data points.

You can download Nimbits Data Acquisition Studio for free from CNET:

Get it from CNET Download.com!

Nimbits On Android

Today we released an interface to Nimbits for Android Based Phones: Nimbits Data Logger. Search for Nimbits in the Google App Store and Install away - it's free! Phones Like the Google Nexus One and Verizon Droid all run the Android Operating System and can therefore run Nimbits Data Logger.

The Nimbits Data Logger allows you to view categories and data points that you set up at app.nimbits.com and get the current value of your data points, see a simple chart of the last 10 values records, and record a new value for a point.

When you record a new value, it is saved back to the Google Cloud Infrastructure and any one viewing that point's value (in spreadsheets, other applications, Visio diagrams etc) will see the changes.

Here is a screen shot of my list of catagories, and viewing my TempF data point. Enjoy!
