The Fraction Calculator feels and behaves exactly like a calculator with one exception, you're working with fractions. So now when homework (checking of course) calls for fractions, or your carpentry project needs you to add eighths and sixteenths dozens of times, or maybe you just want to be able to recalculate that dinner recipe to accommodate for five rather than two – turn to the Fraction Calculator.
Fraction Calculator allows for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing both positive and negative fractions, displaying the results both as a fraction and a decimal. There are also functions to allow for simplifying, reciprocals, squares and square roots.
Fraction Calculator supports iOS's multitasking, SplitView and Slide Over.
Fraction Calculator is fully VoiceOver accessible.
Updated for iOS 12
Ratings and Reviews
Best accessible fractions calculator ever!
Though this app is primarily targeted for the sighted population of children learning how to run basic operations on fractions, it turns out this app is also 100% fully accessible by blind and visually impaired iOS users.
I can't recall the amount of calculators I had to install before finding this accessible fractions calculator. If you have a need for such a calculator, this is not only the most accessible, but just about the only one out there for the population of blind users in the need of a VoiceOver friendly tool. :)
Do yourself a favor and give this app a try; you too will see that it is very intuitive and very easy to use. This is one of those apps which makes life easier by enabling the user to pull out one's iOS device, complete the desired task, then move on.
This app is why iOS was invented!
Note: the previous reviewer made a comment regarding a parental gate, this was not only something which did not interfere with the use of the app, but there was always a way around his inability to get past the prompt.
I’m getting the hang of how to use this app. But it would be helpful to be able to see the full calculations as I am running them through on the app.
There’s no Guide to the app either. So if someone doesn’t know what the various sections are, they might not be able to use it. So, basically, I would like to see the whole calculation when using the app if possible. It would be great if we could print the calculation too. Thanks.

Great fraction calculator
A well designed fraction calculator with excellent VoiceOver support so a blind person can use the calculator with ease.
The only negative thing I I can now give Fraction Calculator the 5 stars it deserves.
They put in a new version that removes the parental gate when voiceOver is on.
My hats off to Palasoftware and to Apple for allowing this update.
