Plan a wedding. Save for retirement. Track your workouts. With a few minutes, a few figures, and a few taps, it’s surprisingly easy to make spreadsheets in Numbers. So it’s even easier to keep track of your life.
Numbers lets you design eye-catching spreadsheets anywhere you are. Choose from 16 Apple-designed templates to use for home, work, and school. Tables are already made. Formulas have been figured out. Colors, fonts, and chart textures coordinate perfectly. Everything’s all set. Just add data, graphics, photos, and words to make it your own.
Tables are ready to go.
Tables in Numbers are prebuilt — just choose the one that fits your data. Create as many tables as you need, resize them however you want, and place them anywhere on the sheet. Add, delete, or rearrange columns, rows, or cells just by dragging your finger. Tap to edit a cell. Smart Zoom on iPhone and iPod touch makes it easy — it automatically zooms in on cells while you edit and zooms back out when you’re done.
Numbers is a big, blank canvas for you to fill up with more than numbers. You can add multiple tables, charts, shapes, photos, and text anywhere on a sheet and move them wherever you like. No matter how you resize a table or where you move it, your calculations remain intact.
Numbers saves automatically.
You never have to worry about losing a change to your spreadsheet because Numbers saves your work — while you work. You can pick up right where you left off the next time you open your spreadsheet. Even if you’re on another device. And the undo feature lets you go back through your work and easily make changes.
Intelligent tables. Impressive 3D charts. On-the-go forms. Numbers takes your data and helps you crunch it fast.
Brilliant cells, too.
Numbers turns you into a table-making master. Double-tap a cell, and up pops the intelligent keyboard that helps you enter data and create formulas. You’ll see the keyboard you need for the data you’re entering — whether it’s digits, dates and times, durations, text, or formulas. Add header rows and columns to label and organize your data. Add footer rows for totals, averages, and summaries. And everything amounts to easy.
Enter data on the go.
Track your gas mileage on the road. Take attendance in a classroom. Keep notes on your spending habits. Whenever and wherever you need to jot down data, enter it on a form in Numbers. You can view any table as a form. And when you link a table to a form, Numbers automatically updates each row as you enter information.
3D charts really stand out.
Give data its due with impressive Apple-designed 2D and 3D charts. Choose bar, line, area, and pie charts that match your spreadsheet template. Or customize your chart colors and fonts. Choose data from a table to add it to your chart. And with a tap, you can change a chart’s title, labels, and number format.
Sliders, steppers, and pop-ups make working with spreadsheets easier and faster than ever. You can even put checkboxes or star ratings in your cells. The net result? Data entry is less like work and more like play.
Wondering what your results would look like if you changed a value? Sliders make it easy to find out. Just slide your finger to increase or decrease the value in a cell. Setting them up is easy, too. Choose a format such as percentages or currency. Set the increments you want. And slide away.
If you want to change data more precisely, steppers let you tap arrows up or down to make adjustments in any increment you choose. You can set the format for the cell, along with minimum and maximum values. All your calculations are dynamically updated every time you tap a stepper.
Make a list of choices you can tap to enter in a cell. Here or absent. Sunny, cloudy, or partly cloudy. S, M, L, or XL. The possibilities are endless, because pop-ups are customizable. Just enter the choices you want in your list. It’s also easy to copy your pop-up menu to adjacent cells.
Numbers gives you everything you expect from a spreadsheet, and a lot you might not. Like infinite help with formulas, easy sorting options, and plenty of ways to organize. It’s all designed so you see data differently.
No need to do the math. Numbers does it for you.
Numbers calculates formulas for you — all you need to do is tap. You can use the intuitive browser to choose from over 250 functions. Consult built-in help for a clear and concise explanation of each variable. And count on zero complications.
See data your way.
You can format any cell to display currency, percentages, durations, and more. Sort your table in ascending or descending order, alphabetically or numerically. Merge multiple cells into one. Hide and unhide rows or columns. Turn filters on and off, so you see only what matters to you. And change the fonts, colors, or borders of any table or cell.
See how it prints.
Before you print.
Print Preview shows you exactly how your spreadsheets will print. Use the slider to scale your sheet on a single page or multiple pages. Auto Fit scales your sheet automatically. View page boundaries, repeat table headers across pages, or add page numbers. Then tap Print.
iCloud automatically keeps your Numbers spreadsheets up to date across all your devices. So you don’t have to.
Your latest draft. Always with you.

You don’t have to manage your spreadsheets in a complicated file system or even remember to save them to a special folder. They’re just there, already up to date on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. So you can start a spreadsheet on one device and finish editing it on another.
