http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2012/12/myscriptcalculator.jpgMyScript Calculator (http://www.visionobjects.com/en/webstore/myscript-calculator/description/) from Vision Objects has been available on Android devices for several months now, but as of today, the math app that lets users handwrite mathematical expressions is available for iPhone and iPad as well (via Mac4Ever (http://www.mac4ever.com/actu/76208_myscript-calculator-resout-vos-equations-ecrites-a-la-main)).

Instead of typing equations into the app, MyScript Calculator accepts written input. Write out an equation with a finger or stylus and the app reads the handwriting. It will translate written work into numbers and digital text, and then solve the problem.

The whole process is quick, intuitive, and easy. It's perfect for small calculations or more complex mathematical equations, supporting the following operations:
-Basic operations: +, -, x, ÷, +/-, 1/x
-Misc. Operations: %, ?, x!, |x|
-Powers/Exponentials: ex, xy , x2
-Brackets: ( )
-Trigonometry: cos, sin, tan
-Inverse trigonometry: acos, asin, atan
-Logarithms: ln , log
-Constants: ?, e.qSESgl3gCFM
MyScript Calculator works with both the iPhone and the iPad, and it is a free download from the App Store (http://appshopper.com/productivity/myscript-calculator). [Direct Link (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/myscript-calculator/id578979413?mt=8)]

It looks like Leonard, Raj and Howard finally released their app.

This just made my upcoming math class a lot less intimidating. Hopefully it works as well as advertised.

Not compatible with my iPod Touch 2g :(
But looks like an awesome app though!

This may be the first app I've seen developed for Android first. Really nice concept and execution.

(please don't start a flamewar)

Android has better stylus support.

Been using this on my S2 for awhile now. Love it!

Requires iOS 6? Ah, poo.

Seriously, though, this is the first thing that's seriously tempting me to upgrade to iOS 6, and lose my JB (which I keep simply for the usefulness of being able to access/write data on SD cards using iFile - the one significant shortcoming of iOS, at this point). Well, I'll have to think on it...

This will come in handy during math tests :D

I don't see the point in this, beyond the 3rd grade. If it solved functions or had integral/derivative support then maybe it would be something worth trying.

And what about mod, floor, ceiling, round, etc? It'd be nice if I didn't have to do so many equations on paper while thinking out equations used while programming.

Whoever wrote your article doesn't know the names of mathematical symbols.

() are parentheses not brackets.

[] are brackets.

That could be part of it.

Whoever wrote your article doesn't know the names of mathematical symbols… "()" are parentheses, not brackets.

Firstly, it was a quote, so the article writer had nothing to do wiht it.

Secondly, Vision Objects is based (http://www.visionobjects.com/en/about-us/contact-and-access/) in France. I think in Europe they call "()" brackets.

it solves simple algebraic functions :)

pretty awesome app! and can't beat the price!

nice little tool :) and for anything language related... brackets in german is "Klammer"

[] eckige Klammer
{} geschweifte Klammer
() runde Klammer (oder einfach nur Klammer)

By the time you've recognisably written 'ceiling' on an iphone screen the moment has probably gone.

Lol...I just re-watched that episode yesterday

There's a symbol for it... surround the value in absolute value bars and put serifs pointing inward at the top:

⌈x⌉

It should be pretty easy to draw that recognizably.

() are parentheses not brackets.

[] are brackets.

Please try to acknowledge that there is a world outside the US, where some of the words you use to describe things are different to the words others use to describe things...

In the UK at least:

() are brackets, or round brackets or yes, some people use parentheses.

[] are square brackets.
