VisiCalc was the first electronic spreadsheet application for personal computers, released in 1979. The program is often credited with contributing to the success of Apple's microcomputer line and propelled sales for early personal computer companies like Apple Computer and Commodore Business Machines. Offering basic arithmetic operations based on a grid structure, VisiCalc allowed users to create automatic recalculation of values in multiple interconnected cells. This innovation made it easier for professionals in various fields to perform financial modeling and planning tasks. After its launch, several competitors entered the market leading to today's modern spreadsheet software used globally by businesses and individuals.
