The iPhone Calculator App "Alpha Calc" pioneered the way with amazing features like custom buttons that no other calculator offers. Now with Alpha Calc Universal, this functionality has been brought to the iPad and reengineered for the iPhone.
New to the Alpha Calc Universal App is a beautiful new interface making navigation a breeze. In the event a user needs assistance, there is a tutorial available when the app first launches making learning as simple as possible. Another new feature to Alpha Calc, is the all new "Answer Button". With other calculators, you would have to guess what the answer button represented. Now, the answer button has a window showing the user at all times what number it represents. “We absolutely love Alpha Calc Universal and hope our users will love it as much as we do!", said Bobby Wilson, President of ValleyRocket.com.
The Alpha Calc iPhone and iPad Calculator App offers a new user interface for calculators that have been around for decades. With the advent of new technologies such as the iPad and iPhone, it is time for innovative designs to surface. As an example, one of the outdated features of the calculator is the memory button. The memory button has been removed in Alpha Calc Universal, and replaced with numerous customizable buttons. The user can customize these buttons with virtually any number, such as answers to equations or regularly used numbers like tax rates. The user can also pick from a library of predefined buttons.
Alpha Calc was designed specifically to feel natural and unobtrusive. Alpha Calc has 6 innovative and unique features missing from other calculators:
1) Swipe - Its very easy to use. All buttons on the keyboard are accessible by swiping left or right on the iPhone display (2nd button on iPad) just as one would on the iPhone home screen. By doing it this way, buttons are large, obvious and can still be fit on one screen.
2) Custom Buttons - It is a Customizable Calculator! If the user swipes to the left there are customizable buttons. By holding down a button the user can save the current expression, add a selection from the button library, or save the last answer to a button (√2, 3π/2, π(Ans)^2, Ans+Ans^2, etc.)
3) Scrolling History - If the user needs to refer back to old calculations, one can always scroll through the history by swiping the current answer. Then, by tapping a previous answer or expression, it will be put in the current Expression Bar.
4) Answer Button - Navigating through the history or assigning buttons can distract the user from the last calculation made and leave one wondering what the “Answer Button” represents. Alpha Calc solved this problem by adding a window on the key that allows the user to always be able to easily see what the Answer Key represents.
5) Inserting Parenthesis - To allow for the quick stream of problem solving, Alpha Calc doesn’t care about end parenthesis. Entering something like Ln(3(cos(7 would be interpreted like Ln(3(cos(7))), because Alpha Calculator knows what you want.
6) Editing Expressions - A user can quickly and easily edit an expression just as one would an e-mail or text message on the iPad and iPhone. Holding down on the expression allows the user to slide a finger to the desired item to edit.
A calculator should do more than just calculations. It shouldn't make solving a problem take longer than doing it by hand. There shouldn’t be time wasted fiddling through buttons you can’t find or understand. Alpha Calc Universal fills the need of the classic calculator while adding innovative features that all iPad and iPhone users will be instantly comfortable with.
Pricing: “Alpha Calc” Universal Calculator App for iPad and iPhone is 99 cents and can be downloaded in the Apple App Store. Reviewers may contact Bobby Wilson for free promo codes.
