Wizard is a new Mac app that makes data analysis easier than ever. No programming, no typing — just click and explore. Wizard includes a full set of tools for doing professional research, yet its friendly interface makes statistics accessible to beginners.
(This is the Pro version; if you don't need the features marked PRO below, check out the standard version, also on the App Store. Note that PRO features are also available as In-App Purchases from the standard version.)

"You can be looking at statistical analyses less than a minute after importing your data." —MacFormat Magazine (UK)
It's true: within minutes of importing your first data set into Wizard, you'll be generating graphics, uncovering correlations, producing p-values, building models, and sharing insights with colleagues. Most customers find that the program pays for itself in just a few days of use. Explore Wizard's delightful feature set, including...
Wizard will start graphing your data as soon as you click on it. It uses native Mac graphics to give you crisp visual summaries — box-plots, scatterplots, histograms, survival curves, and more — in a fraction of a second.
EASY STATISTICAL MODELING
Build sophisticated statistical models in seconds with Wizard's intuitive modeling interface. Regression estimates are instantly recomputed as you play around with the controls and experiment with new specifications.
Wizard supports drag-and-drop, multi-level Undo, and other interface conveniences that Mac users expect from their software. An interactive tutorial will help you get started.
Dozens of functions are available to help you get data into the form you want. Compute quantiles, perform day-of-week calculations, multiply columns together, and more.
Export colorful graphics as web-friendly PNG or print-quality PDF. If you're surrounded by PC users, export your models as interactive spreadsheets that can be used to run "What if?" scenarios in any version of Microsoft Excel.

LIST OF FILE FORMATS AND DATABASES
Although you have the option to enter data manually, more likely you'll want to import data from one of the following sources:
• Excel (.xls/.xlsx)
• Numbers ('09 and later)
• R workspace files (.RData and .rds)
• DBF and MS-Access
• Plain text (Comma-, tab-, and custom-delimited values)
PRO File Formats
• SAS binary (.sas7bdat), transport (.xpt), and script (.sas) files
• SPSS binary (.sav), portable (.por), and script (.sps) files
• Stata binary (.dta) and dictionary (.dct) files
New in 1.9.13:
• Some strings were incorrectly imported from XLS files
• Improved text-encoding detection in CSV files
• Fix a crash after cancelling the creation of an Indicator Variable
New in 1.9.12:
• Multinomial logit models: Fewer "Not enough data" errors when the outcome distribution is heavily lopsided.
• Multinomial logit models: Fix a bug in the Predict view when one or more outcome values are filtered out. (Previously, the Predict view would assign positive probability to filtered-out values.)
• Ordered probit models: Fix a bug in the exported XLS file when one or more outcome values are filtered out. (Previously, Excel would report an error about corrupt or missing data.)
New in 1.9.11:
• Improved navigation of topics in the Help file
• Fix formatting of mean values in the Summary view for durations, currency, etc.
New in 1.9.10:
• Fixed a number of broken links in the Help file
• Fixed an interface glitch viewing Predictions after opening a saved file
• Fixed an interface glitch viewing correlation tests when correlation=1
• Improved ability to cancel MySQL operations
New in 1.9.9:
• Database importers: Increase timeout to 3 minutes
• MySQL importer: Fix bug when importing NULL numeric values
New in 1.9.8:
• Added support for computing Spearman's rank correlation coefficient
• Correlation tests now display the correlation coefficient rather than the z-score
• Improved performance of Standardized columns
• Improved support for importing POR files
New in 1.9.7:
• Display the correct number of decimal places in the Filters pane
• Improved support for importing R workspaces
New in 1.9.6:
• Excel importer: fix a bug where columns in XLS files were imported in the wrong order
New in 1.9.5:
• Fix a bug where standard errors in the Summary view did not display the correct number of decimal digits
• Fix a bug where empty sheets in Excel files caused importing to fail
• Fix a number of uncommon crash issues
New in 1.9.4:
• Improved compatibility with SAV files when IBM SPSS Statistics is installed on the same machine
New in Wizard 1.9:
FROM THE LOWER DEPTHS OF HELL comes Wizard Pro 1.9, a malign masquerade ball of new features and functionality. If you thought that Wizard could already do everything when it comes to data transformation and analysis, YOU WERE WRONG. In the biggest release since last year's sleeper hit Wizard Pro 1.8, Wizard Pro 1.9 brings you...
* COLLAPSIBLE FILTERS -- Make the most of screen real estate with the new Pin button -- when activated, it keeps filters applied even when you close the Filters pane.
* DATES, DATES, DATES -- Import dates in your favorite format, format your dates with four exciting date templates, analyze dates with down-to-the-second precision, partition date/time data with greater flexibility, and create Timestamp columns using the number of seconds from a particular start date.
* FILE SIZE FORMATTING -- Does your data set include a file size measured in bytes? Now you can format it with easy-to-read units (KB, MB, GB, etc). There's even an option to switch between the decimal convention (1,000 bytes per kilobyte) and the binary convention (1,024 bytes per kilobyte).
* NEW PIVOT FUNCTIONS -- Standard Error of the Mean and 95% Confidence Interval, now available for your pivoting pleasure.
* ITUNES IMPORTER -- Automatically pull in your music collection and see all the new features in action with the new iTunes importer. Visualize your listening habits by time of day, tally up your music collection by artist and genre, and graph file sizes and track lengths just for kicks. To get started, use the new menu item File > Import iTunes Music Library...
These are just the big-ticket items -- in addition, Wizard Pro 1.9 boasts countless interface tweaks and bug fixes to make your statistical experience as smooth, seamless, and streamlined as possible. Enjoy it on OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) or later

Awesome start and great teaching tool - I really was shocked at how good this is right from the start. The onboarding tutorial is terrific. The interactive GUI is going to make this awesome for using in presentation and as a teaching tool as well. I was just getting ready to run a bunch of categorical models, and I'm going to give this a shot as my primary toolset.
