MyCalcApp

How come calculators have not changed at all in 40 years? The calculator on your iPhone today is the same as the 1973 MITS calculator. It is time for a revolution. It is time for… MyCalcApp.

Description
We describe the most unique functions. Check the manual to explore every function.

  • Percentages and absolute percentages
    Just adding a surcharge or subtracting a discount from a number is easy. Any calculator can do this. One uses the % key. MyCalcApp also has an absolute percentage or %! key. Use this key to undo a surcharge (or a discount) from a number. If an amount including 4% VAT is $ 99.50. What is the number before VAT. $99.50 – 4 %! = $ 95.67. To get the same result on another calculator you would have to do: $99.50 / (100+4) * 100.
  • Currency math
    MyCalcApp will add numbers in mixed currencies. 5 dollar + 12 euro + 16 Yen = 15.96 euro. The app will ask Google for actual conversion rates and will convert as you type.
  • Fraction math
    Adding and subtracting fractions is not a simple task. MyCalcApp can easily add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. And it can convert fractions into decimals and percentages... and back.
  • Units of measure
    Besides simple arithmetic MyCalcApp also accepts units of measure in its calculations and performs all conversions automatically. Use the mode or MD key to switch to superpower mode to get access to the units of measure keys.
  • Popular formulas
    If you know the formula for the volume of a sphere, it is still difficult to compute it on most calculators. Except if you use MyCalcApp. For starters, it knows the formula, pick it from the list (volume of sphere). Enter the radius (1 m radius) and you get the answer (= 4.19 cubic meters).

We feel that MyCalcApp might just be the calculator for you.
