Leveraging handwriting enables children and engineers alike to write any equation on a digital device, as they would on a real piece of paper.
NANTES, FRANCE (PRWEB) March 19, 2015
MyScript®, the acknowledged market leader in accurate, high-performance handwriting recognition and digital ink management technology, announces an updated release of the MyScript Calculator application for iOS devices including iPhone and iPad.
MyScript Calculator allows users to perform mathematical operations naturally using handwritten input. Users simply write the mathematical expression on the device screen, and MyScript technology converts the symbols and numbers to digital text, delivering the results in real time. Results can be copied to the clipboard as text which can be used in other apps.
Debuting in 2012, MyScript Calculator was a winner at CES Mobile Apps Showdown and has been downloaded by over 29 million users. The new 1.3 version on iOS devices includes premium features available through a single in-app purchase for $.99 USD including:
- Immediate Reuse: Continue a long operation or use the result in a new calculation.
- Memory: Save results into memory and use them anytime.
- History: Retrieve all past calculations for review, reuse, or export.
When users install MyScript Calculator for the first time, or upgrade from a previous version, they receive 30 free trials of the premium features (for example: 15 immediate reuses, 10 memory uses and 5 history reloads).
“Math input on digital devices usually involves using lots of buttons or learning a specific code, which can have a steep learning curve and slow down the user,” said Fabien Ric, Product Manager, MyScript. “Leveraging handwriting enables children and engineers alike to write any equation on a digital device, as they would on a real piece of paper. By removing this input barrier, we help them to actually focus on the problem they’re trying to solve, instead of figuring out how to enter it.”
MyScript Calculator 1.3 for iOS is available now on the App Store. MyScript Calculator was developed leveraging the Math Widget from the Application Toolkits available on the MyScript Developer Program web site. MyScript technology currently recognizes over 200 mathematical symbols and characters, providing a robust toolkit for interactive handwritten mathematical work, such as calculations, assessments and engineering documentation.
