Ratings and Reviews
No shortcuts, not a serious calculator
This is little more than a toy, or an app to experiment with or learn how to use an HP-12c. It does not come with any useful shortcuts, which makes computation a chore. The mouse must be used to access almost every feature. I would not reccomend this app to anyone needing to do serious work. I will be requesting a refund.
Why the "RUNNING" between each entry?
It's a HP 12C emulator and it works just like an HP 12C. However, the one glaring annoyance is that it displays "Running" EVERY time it runs a calculation. I don't mean it displays it for a split second as the Intel I7 processor in my MAC crunches the number…no…it flashes "running" for 3 to 20 seconds (not a typo). EVERY TIME! It's hugely annoying, as there is no possible way the processor in my Mac is slower than the Voyager/ARM processor in the real 12C. My real HP12C is faster than this app running on a Mac with a quad-core I7 processor and 16GB of memory. Seriously?!?
Remember to turn it on
The calculator has an on/off button and ships with it turned off. I don’t know why the author decided to give it an on/off button and especially why it was shipped turned off.
Copy/paste isn’t enabled, which is quite bothersome. The bond calcs I tried showed the Running status for about as long as my 12c. It would be nice if the prefrences let you turn this off.
Also, the border seems a little thick.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
