R Studio is Great

  • May 23, 2016
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Seamlessly integrates console with file editing and allows you to view objects in memory and user-created graphics.
What do you dislike?
The product offers little customization; it is much like an Apple product whereby the product defaults (while quite nice) are difficult to customize.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
R studio is great for statistical analyses. It is the free, open-source version of Matlab.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I basically can't imagine coding without R Studio.


    Higher Education

I usually use R and R scripts from the terminal window, but use R Studio for some applications.

What do you like best?
R Studio is a useful GUI for implementing multiple associated R scripts, which is my primary use. I have found that running multiple driver or wrapper files (for a computational model, for example) is easier in R Studio compared to the terminal window. It is also a good tool for running problematic code line-by-line to diagnose errors, and to search long outputs.
What do you dislike?
As with any GUI, R Studio does not offer the flexibility that working from the terminal does. For example, I prefer to write code outside R Studio (in gedit or notepad) because it is more visually-pleasing, and I prefer to make high-quality figures this was as well.

As a side note, I hate that R Studio automatically opens your prior documents when you open the software.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I am an academic in the natural sciences. I use this software in primary research (big data, statistics, GIS, modeling), and to make figures for publications.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
R Studio is a useful tool and will be useful for some applications. If you have a computing background, it may be a little aggravating at times.

Awesome software for analytics and visualization

  • May 03, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
This software fully harnesses the power and usefulness of R. Very easy to set up and to acquire packages online. Keeping multiple task screens together makes the workflow process optimization easy to customize. Being able to program, run, and see output in one screen is awesome. The connection to the R community is of infinite help.
What do you dislike?
Connecting to a database live can be tricky to do. The learning curve to fully utilize this software is very steep.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Predictive modeling, descriptive statistics, inferential statistical testing. Benefits realized include being able to manipulate and visualize our data using a cost effective software platform.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Try to get linked to your database live.

Great IDE for teaching R courses

  • April 08, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
RStudio is a very simple but powerful IDE, ideal for people new to either R or programming. It can be installed in any major OS (Windows, Linux, MacOS) in a short amount of time, usually without any problems. It combines a simple editor, terminal and variable window that makes it feel like a Matlab-like environment, which is great for beginners or for people coming from other languages like Matlab.
What do you dislike?
There is very few things to dislike about RStudio, since it is probably the best R IDE out there. However, some areas for improvement are the simple IDE and graphics handling (sometimes a little buggy).
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I'm teaching R courses using this IDE and I also use it myself when doing research in R.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you are learning R, RStudio is the way to go. I also found it useful when teaching R courses, since the students (usually new to programming) can get the IDE up and running very quickly and everything is much more visual (they do not have to keep track of the objects in memory, and so on.)

The best IDE for R

  • March 17, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
R-studio is well designed to offer a integrated development environment. It features a console, syntax-highlighting editor that supports direct code execution, as well as tools for plotting, history, debugging and workspace management. What's the most excellent thing is it not only offers the automatic code completion, but also the automatic file path completion. It really save a lot of time to help you interact with the exterior environment.
What do you dislike?
If I have to list something I do not like about Rstudio, I may say the Rstudio for MAC may collapse when I was using parallel method computing huge calculations and it may not save the latest revision I made before the collapse.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
I use Rstudio to work on the data analysis by R. Mostly, the problems I got are from the academical project. And up to now, the R and Rstudio has helped me successfully completed several projects.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You gotta install R first before you install R-Studio
