Top iPhone and iPad apps for productivity (March 2018 edition)
By Adrian Kingsley-Hughes
If you’re the sort of person who likes jotting calculations out on the back of an envelope, you’ll love MyScript Calculator. Rather than relying on a keyboard, you write out your calculations on an interactive display. You can easily change, erase, and update the equations you write.
And you’re not limited to easy stuff either — you can do some pretty indepth stuff using this calculator:
- Basic operations: +, -, ×, ÷, /,:
- Powers, roots, exponentials: 7², √, ∛, e³
- Miscellaneous operations: %, |5|, 3!
- Brackets: ( )
- Trigonometry: sin, cos, tan, cot, cosh, sinh, tanh, coth Inverse trigonometry: asin, acos, atan, acot, arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccot, acosh, asinh, atanh, acoth, arcosh, arsinh, artanh, arcoth
- Logarithms: ln, log
- Constants: π, e, phi
I have to admit that initially I was skeptical, but after a few minutes of using this, it’s now my go-to app for the sort of stuff that I’d have previously scribbled out on an old bit of paper.
