Best Calculator App for iPad

It does not have scientific functions but for basic calculations this one is the best.

That one is pretty ugly. If you are talking the "Best Calculator for iPad" you at least want one that looks cool and does all the scientific calculations

I like this one...

No scientific functions and a dreadful interface
I think I will pass on this

Digits Calculator

I was looking for a calculator that has a 'tape' (that could be saved/shared) and found this one. Not only does it have a tape but also claims to be "correctable". Has anyone tried it?

Best calculator app for ipad

I have just created a very versatile calculator app that will be perfect for professionals and more basic users. Its called Calculator+- on the iPad appStore. Get it here!

It has a natural style display with fractions and mixed fractions. It also allows you to Differentiate, Integrate and Sum functions of X numerically. (Soon Analytically too!)

Includes all trigonometric functions packaged away into a scrollable interface thats very simple to use, roots, powers, logs, abs, factorial, percent.

Stores a full list of mathematical constants and conversions.



Please review.

Wow, it's sad to see this thread degenerate into a spam thread (then again, many app threads tend to be spams).

Anyway, as gks said earlier, the best calculator app for iPad, bar none, is Soulver ($5.99 USD). It may not look fancy in screenshot but it is immensely powerful yet easy to use.

If you are looking for fancy looking calculator, Calcbot ($1.99 USD) is worth a look.

I'm personally using TI-Nspire CAS, which is the most robust. However, you probably won't like the $29.99 price tag.

This was the one I was using beforehand:

Here's the freebie version you can check out first:
