If you’re perform complex scientific and/or programming calculations in school or for a living then you’ll definitely want to check out CalcAdva! This calculator app can handle the extremely complex calculations including variable, logical, and scientific calculations, expressions, bit operations, and more. Why spend $100+ on a Texas Instruments calculator when you can have this bad boy on you at all times for a fraction of the cost (currently priced at $2.99)!
Created by Stefan Granqvist, CalcAdva includes pretty much every thing you need to perform complex calculations quickly and easily. Designed to meet the needs of scientists and programmers, CalcAdva houses a comprehensive inventory of variable calculations (97 variables) that functions as a searchable, one-touch quick calculation and reference guide. In addition to the inclusive list, you can also enter in your own variables!
Recognizing that people can make mistakes while entering hard core equations, CalcAdva offers a few really nice to have features that’ll make your complex calculating life much easier. For starters the calculator works with full expressions, meaning if you enter in a complex calculation (ex. 5*14+3-1/5+14*2+3) it won’t incrementally solve the problem each time you enter a new sign, instead it waits to begin solving until you’ve pressed the “=” button. Additionally, CalcAdva automatically keeps a running history of calculations performed. If you later realize that you may have accidentally entered a typo in a previous calculation, you can simply search your history for the calculation, update it, and recalculate in a matter of seconds!
I must admit, I’m neither a scientist or a programmer, however from what I can tell CalcAdva is a great alternative to the traditionally expensive and rather large hand held scientific calculators. It’s a fraction of the cost, offers a plethora of handy and specialized features, and for the every day scientist, programmer, or technical/engineering focussed individual provides a convenient alternative to lugging around a bulky calculator.
