I am working on a project to perform excel data mining and plotting, thus I would like to gather your opinions on whether it is best to use App Designer or GUIDE? Depending on which one is easier to learn and more suitable for achieving my goal.
Just a little open discussion for me to observe from all you experts :D

Hi I just got some first insights into the Appdesigner and I have to say that the App Designer is more appealing looking at the visualization. However, I am going to work with guide as before because the App Designer is very limited and still buggy. For instance the Resizing doesnt allways work properly. Further I think that the Property Inspector of GUIDE offers more possibilitys, also to implement profound programs. I hope that they will be able to Combine both the esthetic of the AppDesigner with the functionality of the GUIDE.

An update, I put in a Technical Support report about the issue. After some back and forth they finally figured it out and the dissapearing dots when I zoom are gone! I had set the Zdata of the dots to 30 and they suggested 0.9 and they also noted that the 'SortMethod' on the axes "depth" and I should change it to be "childorder". I am not sure how the 'SortMethod' got to be depth because I did not set that property. But doing those two things made my dots stay put when zoom in and out and using the toolbar home item.

App Designer is the future. The old pathetic GUIDE will probably go once App Designer is complete. Personally I, and many many others, can't use App Designer because for some reason they released it without the ability to display an image. When they add that ability, then I might take a look at it again.

Unforunately App Designer has some bugs in the graphing and ability to click on lines and display symbols when zooming in or out. So after a month of programming App Designer and being probably 70% done I am now switching to a guide version. Steph
