There are many calculators apps for iPhones and considering we have been using the calculators on our phones long before we had iPhones (in fact we often used them on our digital watches), they are a function that most of us really want to see on out iPhone or iPad. There are now some pretty impressive ones out there, many of which go one step further than even a scientific calculator with the ability to graph results of equations. These can be really useful to students as well as anyone who works in the mathematics field or has a job or hobby that needs them to make graphs and so below are reviews of some of them.
TIME has a free iPhone app which will give high school students a fantastic scientific calculator as well as the graphing tool. It is simple enough to use and will give fairly clear pictures so you can see the answers to those equations that are bugging you.
Meta-Calculator 2.0 is a Graphing calculator that can be used online as well as being available as an app. This means that you can use it when you are on the move as well as when you are sitting at your PC or laptop. It not only has a graphing calculator function but is also a scientific calculator. Matrix calculator and even a statistics calculator so many functions for all possible mathematical queries. This is a free app, although there are additions that you can pay for, such as removing the adverts and things like that.
Appcylon LLC has a graphing calculator app. You have to pay for this one, although not very much. It has many functions and you can display the resulting graph on bigger devices such as TV’s projectors and monitors. It also allows you to take screenshots and email the graphs to yourself.
There are some subtle differences between the apps. It is a good idea to take a look at all of the available options and decide which has the functions that you need. You will want to think about what you want to use the app for. It is always tempting to go for the free option, but it is worth taking a look at them all as you may find that you take a long time to learn how to use an app and then find it does not do exactly what you need. This may mean that you will then have to buy one and learn how to use that. This could waste valuable time. Therefore make sure that you read all the reviews that you can find and make sure that you have enough information to make an informed decision as to which one will suit you and your needs the best. It may seem like a lot of work, but you could find that it will take even more work if you have to learn a selection of packages because you have not done enough research initially.
