RPN-38 CX is the first photo-realistic simulation of Hewlett-Packard's popular high-end programmable business calculator HP-38C for the iPhone. Produced from 1979 through 1983, it was the "Chive" member of the third-generation HP calculators known as the "Spice" series.

While the simulator works like the original calculator, a number of carefully designed extensions make it a lot easier to use.

RPN-38 CX is fully compatible with the HP-12C, except for calculations and programs involving Bonds and Depreciation.
