The spreadsheet application is frequently used to fill fixed items with typical values repeatedly.

We developed this application for the purpose of such a use.

For example, it is useful for attendance check list, evaluation check list, goods management list, event management list, game score list, counting (passing traffic, the attendance, the bird watching), questionnaire input (answers for plural items), cashbook (the record of the amount of money, its purpose and the date), action log (time and location records of events).

Various samples are included: Counter, Checking, Scoring, Questionnaire, Calculator with logging, PRN calculator, Voice input, Speak out, Location search, QR code input/output and others.

1. The keypad layout and input character sequence can be modified freely.

2. One key touch can be assigned to the entry of plural characters, the jump between cells, calculation of the cell value and others. The action can be controlled with JavaScript.

3. Supported file format are xls, xlsx, csv, tsv and txt. At reading text (csv, tsv, txt), the character encoding can be detected automatically or can be selected manually. Data file is compatible to Excel and other spread sheets.

4. It can execute the Excel formula. It also has a parser of arithmetic expressions.

5. It can copy/paste the cell and cell range. It can send and receive the text by using ‘Share’ function. Therefore, the user can choose various input methods and applications
such as OCR (optical character recognition).

6. It can hide/unhide/delete/insert columns and rows.

7. It reflects Excel settings about font color and fill color. But it does not reflect Excel settings about grid line, width, height, cell merge, chart, image and others.

8. It has functions for location input (using GPS and others), QRcode/barcode input, voice recognition input, and exchanging data with other applications by using file, clipboard, share function, and QRcode. For these functions, it requests permissions of location, camera, and external storage. If functions are not required, the request can be denied (Android 6 or later).

9. It can speak out the text in the cell or the cell range by using ‘Text to speech (TTS)’ function.

10. It includes sample layout files which can be used in various situations and are edited freely.

11. The Help document exists in the following page.
