Ratings and Reviews
I have been looking for a truly powerful calculator for a long time. I've tried variations of the HP top of the line and several were very nice but as I said in one of the other reviews that calculator emulators are great for what they are but the idea is to serve your needs. If a calculator still retains all of the disadvantages of the original then it is not an advancement. This calculator not only provides all the capabilities of the HP that inspired it but also eliminates many of the physical calculator's cons. Ever had a calculator that did everything you needed and more but required a book and a lot of memory work to do any of the sophisticated things? This one does not have that drawback. There is context based help available at the touch of a button. Now you can actually use the full power of the calculator without it becoming a research project. To me, that essentially made the more advanced the calculator the less useful it became. Not so here. I applaud the developer. We don't need exact replicas of calculators, we need something to do a job with the least effort on our part. This is a giant step in that direction. Calculators are not sacred but my time is. Get this. You won't regret it. Now I can get on with my work!
Great price but a there is a flaw
I am giving this 5 stars because compared to purchasing a ti-84 it is fantastic. A ti-84 is around $120 while this is only $6. We have ti-84s at our school and I prefer those because of the buttons being easier to use and press but they can do much about that because this is a touch screen phone. The one flaw I have found while using this is while zooming in closely to a line on the graph sometimes the line will move or extend a bit while I am zooming in then it will change positions when the zooming stops. I was graphing circles and just messing around with the app when I noticed this. I put y1=-sqrt(64-x^2) and y2=sqrt(64-x^2) and I noticed as I zoomed in to where they should presumably meet along the X axis they were messing up for me. Otherwise amazing app and I believe they actually have more features than a brand new ti-84.
Developer Response ,
Fixed! As of version 1.6 the ends of discontinuous functions are accurately drawn. Your circle function now graphs smoothly at all zoom factors. It does way better than an actual TI graphing calculator! Update to the latest version and try it out- I think you will like it.
If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact the developer directly. Touch the ? key twice and then touch the "ask a question" or "report a bug" button.
Thanks from a blind student
I’ve been using this app for 4(?) or possibly even 5 years now. It’s the best app I’ve ever downloaded. I don’t think I would have been able to get through Calc BC without it because I couldn’t see a regular Ti-83 well enough. If I could give it more stars, I would. Most of the time, it’s far better than Desmos. Being legally blind, and having the capabilities to do complex math is a life changer. Only thing that sorta bugs me is the splash screen and app icon because if a teacher is peaking over my shoulder they may believe me to be goofing off (happened a few times) because my original iPad Air takes forever to load it (I’ve been looking at an iPad Pro for the bigger screen but they are way too expensive.
Well anyway, thanks to the developer for literally changing my life. I appreciate it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
