Hi John, I kind would guess that it might have to be something like the Sketchpad app which does not really allow you to construct anything but lets you explore within premade sketches. So for Fathom, to me, that would mean using Fathom files that already have collections and objects in them and although you might not be able to make a graph or other like object, you might be able to drag attributes to change them. But I guess we would have to wait and see if something actually comes out.

That would be neat! Perhaps the Fathom App would allow the user to pull in data bases from the web as Fathom does on a computer!

Data exploration on the iPad would then be real exciting!
