Why AppHipMom loves it: a calculator with no keypad
Got to give hubby the credit for finding this neat calculator app. I know, you’re thinking another calculator app, they all do the same thing. Well, sure they do. Any calculator will give you the answer, but with MyScript Calculator, you won’t have to search the keyboard to find the numbers and mathematical symbols you need. This app provides the answer simply by reading your handwritten mathematical equation.
The user interface is super simple. The screen looks like a piece of graph paper. Simply write your equation and MyScript Calculator will give you the answer. You don’t even need to include the equal sign. If you make a mistake, simply erase and start again. The app supports all basic operations (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication) as well as percentages, fractions, brackets, trigonometry, inverse trigonometry, exponentials, powers, constants and logarithms (where were you in my high school days?!).
Currently, settings only allow you to select up to 3 decimal places. And if you want to show off your mathematical brilliance, you can share via email or Twitter.
MyScript Calculator is a fun app that will amaze even math geniuses who would probably have no use for something like this. But for those who punches in numbers regularly, this app may be faster than using a calculator. Could this mean a slow death for the scientific calculator or even the calculator as we know it?
