On Tuesday, workplace collaboration platform Coda publicly launched its services after a limited beta. IPhone users can also take advantage of Coda's tools with the company's iOS app.

The app stands apart from traditional office tools because it blends text, presentations, third-party apps and spreadsheet utilities into a single document. Coda also allows for some basic programming.

The program's one-tap presentation mode lets you view a doc in full screen. Creators can add tables, graphs, calendars, buttons, sliders and more to any project.

"Fundamentally, documents and spreadsheets haven't really changed," Shishir Mehrotra, co-founder and CEO of Coda, said on its website. "So we asked ourselves, what would we build if we started from scratch?"

Coda's interface is clean and user-friendly. It's easy to navigate between projects, access the suite of tools and share ideas.

In the app, you can create tables that "talk" to each other, show data in different views for fresh perspectives, add reference formulas and more, which "builds a doc as powerful as an app," according to Coda.

When you launch Coda on your iPhone, the website arranges itself to feel more like an app. Buttons become swipe actions, notifications push to your phone and more, according to Coda.

The service has been used by companies like Uber and Spotify. One user in the App Store said Coda helped them organize their day. Coda is flexible enough for a basic to-do list, to launch products, schedule the everyday workings in a company and more.
