Mobile Chart Options

Check out this promising beta by ZingChart, HTML5 Canvas.


This advanced Zoom, Scroll, Preview is very well designed and implemented.

They also have sparklines, which are microcharts used to convey the “shape” of data, not necessarily all the details a full size chart would include.

ZingChart also offers a Speed Test example, which I think is pretty cool for helping non-super-techie people like myself understand which factors can influence chart loading times.
