My review

Review from Howard Toon

Howard Toon

Latest update is fantastic! Just to be cheeky - any chance of "i" making an appearance as a constant? This is a superb piece of work. I'm stunned at its facilities combined with an intuitive interface. I wouldn't be without it. Thank you for your work and generosity in donating this to the community.

Absolutely brilliant app! The only issue I've had with it so far is that the question mark is frequently registered as a 2 with a decimal point instead of an unknown number. If you could use several variables instead of only one that would be really useful too. If you could create them using circled letters (or something) so the app would register them as variables easier that would work great. Also, I was unable to tap the 'calculate' button with my stylus. Please look into these issues and I'll rate the app higher.

Lucas Abdala

Great Very impressive handwriting recognition, and in consequence its super intuitive! Here's a couple of suggestions: pen only mode (and use finger to drag or something) and some more advanced mathematical functions like derivatives and integrals.

James Armstead

Great fun for my son It's teaching my 2yr old algebra. I'm confident he'll master calculus by 4, and planet Earth by 7. Thank you Myscript Calculator :)

Connie Campbell

Great app! Having lots of fun doing math now (never thought I'd say that lol). Very easy to use & change conversions. My only issue is I can't seem to do negative numbers outside a parenthesis. Every time I try my negative is turned into a minus with a ? before it. Would be 5/5 if this wasn't the case. Thank you!

Francis Boyle

Surprisingly brilliant I thought this. would be a gimmick but it turned out to be the most intuitive calculator I've ever used. Not perfect. As others have said there's no way to chain calculations so if you want to add a long list of numbers or do really complex calculations you better have a paper and pencil handy. (A scratch pad would be nice.) Otherwise, brilliant.

Geoff Mortimer

Wow A great app and it will recognise my scruffy handwriting. This is something novel and useful as well as being flexible. I have not given it 5 five stars yet because I agree with some of the other reviewer's comments. Developers please keep developing I really want to give you five stars. One problem, the app seems to take the comma as a decimal point so I cannot delineate thousands.

User reviews

Converts from my script a little too fast It needs to give a little more time before converting from my input script and calculating. Could use standard crossout for a change of input. Slow it down a little. I know I can stop auto calc altogether but wish I didn't have to. Maybe add an option that increases time to calc from last input by 1/10th second until the user is comfortable. I feel like I'm racing the clock now.

Adel Hi have my middle school students download it to use it to check their homework, we don't give marks for homework so no use copying answers, however they will probably learn something if they copy too! I empower them and let them take responsibility for their learning too.

Partly writing numbers or signs In my Nvidia shield tablet there seem to be some sort of lag or bug with the input recognition. At the beginning I thought I was writing too fast but it happens when I do it slow too. Example if I try to write an equation a small part of a number could be missing and a big part of the division line too, it happens almost all the time. I have this app on my Note 4 and works perfectly so I don't know if its a Nvidia or app related issue ! OK so after a few days I tried it again and works fine ???

Although it handles more complex 'simple' math, it seems to perform better on a 10 inch tablet, than an S6 size mobile. Still good though. Probably due to relatively small screen for a 'finger' written imput. It tends to miss-match input symbology on the small screen!

Useful, but missing a few feature I like the app but I find myself constantly memorizing the last calculation so I can re-use it. An easy way to use the last result would be nice. I Keep running out of room on my phone screen. Also, needs pinch zoom feature to shrink/expand.

Awesome! Butttt.... Awesome app and recognizes handwriting really well. The only thing that stops me from giving a 5 star rating is that it doesn't recognize algebraic equations/notations and some other mathematical symbols. Add this and I'd definitely give 5/5. Edit: down graded my rating because it cannot recognize negative numbers.

It would be much helpful if we could tilt the grid lines in the settings When writing with hand on a paper, people always keep the paper slightly tilted. Since in this app I have to keep my strokes vertical, writing gets somewhat difficult. If I try tilted writing, it interprets my + as x, 7 as 1 and so on. So, please do something about the grid lines

Great calculator I use this app for a very long time. Before it was available for iOS only and I'm glad I can use it on my Android now. It is very useful and cool app. Sometimes when you need to delete just a single number from your calculation it gets a little tricky, but when you get use the app it's not a problem at all. I'm sure most of people will find this app very handy.

No x and y recognition Also, a tiny bit glitchy but still fun and useful. I'm guessing the reason why they don't have X and Y because X looks too much like multiply and lower case Y could glitch into a 9? Still a cool app

Ankur Yadav Doesn't recognises x & y and translates them into number. And it doesn't saves the results for future calculations. Results just comes and go when we try to write something. Provide next sheet in case current sheet gets filled with result forwarded with it. And When we want to use decimal point using fingers sometimes two dots gets drawn, and it results into coma thats very annoying. You should understand two dots consecutively should mean one dot only.

Very useful This is very fluid, accurate and a very efficient calculator. It would be great if this would work with variables. Perhaps this could be a request for any possible update? 😉🙂👌👍💪

Absolutely lovable Absolute pleasure using this, far better than using standard calculators. Able to perform most calculations with ease in a blip, and where normal calculators fail to help viz. cube root of expression. Provision of selection of thickness of drawing would be highly appreciated as for smaller screens it little difficult to use without stylus. 👍👍

This app has come a long way I started using this app at the beginning of highschool. I'm on my way out and it has improved dramatically. I used to struggle to just write the number "4". Now I try to mistype stuff to see if it will make a mistake, and it won't.

The app as as whole, brilliant! However don't expect to be able to do high level maths on there as it sometimes gets confused. Couldn't seem to carry the square root over all the numbers i wanted it to, instead it seemed to create a divide line over an already completed equation. Then it just gets confused thinking that i must have wanted it to be there as when i undo it, it seems to go through other places i may have wanted the / the thing is, i didn't want it there in the first place!

wow --recognized everything I threw @ it! I cannot ask for more from this app but if you decide to implement additional features, please consider a paid version with full screen mode and the ability to graph. Excellent work! p.s. try dividing by zero!

Amazing This app's ingenuity recognizes almost all kinds of handwriting, and has the ability to put together and calculate complex equations. Every update brings awesome new features. It's Quick and efficient, what more could you ask for? Has a bit of a lag now on Galaxy Note 5.

Great Can't do everything but I'm in Algebra 2 and it helps me get my homework done quickly! I do the problem and then plug it into the app to see if I got it right. One thing to add which would be incredibly helpful would be a breakdown on how it did the problem. Other then a few issues here and their this app was worth it and will be used a lot this year!

1/2 way there This app is on the edge of being incredibly awesome. It sadly falls short. It does not keep a history, nor does it recognize x or y or for that matter any other letters. If you want to add 1 + 1 then this app will knock your socks off.

Sorry, Man I like the app but I hate, loathe, and despise the two dozen rate nags I get on a daily basis. What you devs don't understand is that we're inundated by nags every version of every app after every update. You think you and your one nag are all we see. Not by a long shot. It's gotten out of control and one starring the nags is all I can do to make you care, and even then, you still don't, making the one star even more deserved. Don't ruin a good app with nags. Please.

Doesn't recognises x & y and translates them into number And it doesn't saves the results for future calculations. Results just comes and go when we try to write something. Provide next sheet in case current sheet gets filled with result forwarded with it. And When we want to use decimal point using fingers sometimes two dots gets drawn, and it results into coma thats very annoying. You should understand two dots consecutively should mean one dot only.

Awesome This app is so awesome. I am doing better on my homework now. Even though it doesn't recognize x and y, it can still help me with my square roots and other stuff. I would totally reccomend it to other people struggling with math. 😀😀😀

It is an amazing experience to use this app, it makes things so simple and I find it quite amusing even, to just draw an equation and see the solution in no time. The recognition can be a bit of a burden sometimes especially for those who are used to write things a bit differently (e.g. commas instead of dots).

BEST MOBILE CALCULATOR! I mean normal calculators that I know can't do fractions and this is perfect! And your writing it instead of buttons which could be a little fun 😄 good job juts wondering will this come to windows phone or did I miss it?

Can't even do simple things I installed this just to see if it would work. If you are doing very simple things, then yes it does. But it does not recognize mixed fractions or adding negative numbers. Concept is fine, just get these items fixed. Then I might rethink the rating.

Perfect Best calculator ever made. Only 2 problems there are no variables and can't copy your answer if you need to do more complex math if your having trouble with this app try using a stylus pen.😀

The calculator every student needs So while calculators are great sometimes understanding how to use scientific calculators can be frustrating. This lets you just put in the problem as you see it without taking another course on how to use the calculator. Its been perfect for helping my son with homeschool.

An excellent app for maths. A few foibles, such as powers to powers don't work (but brackets are your friend!) and adding lots of numbers you run out of screen, but it is very much more use than a standard calculator for understanding what you've done.

Ok but does not include letters like.. a, b, c......, z my sums are incomplete without them. Please add them. It is my request. The time you add them i will give you ★★★★★. And does not give answers in fraction. I want cube root of 27... i wrote question. Now big problem i will take cube root of 27 as square root of 327. If you understand my problem than u cam also solve it. Bring next update and i wil install it again

I love it but sometimes it's really hard to cross some stuff off or when I try to write an equation it will mix everything up and make it super complicated so I have to start over. If I could highlight what I'd like to get rid of then choose to delete it I think it'd make the handling easier. Also I think it would be amazing if you could make it like a piece of paper where you can highlight and arrange/move around separate equation and zoom in and out, also if adding measurements is possible it'd be so cool. And maybe the possibility of different colors to help organization of equations? kinda like how on Microsoft paint it's a huge peice of paper that you can move around on and make several drawings. 😄 I realize that this may be impossible and I still love the app as is but I think these suggestions or any of them would be really cool additions! People would definitely pay for it!

Amazing, finally one that works! This app does everything that it says and it actually WORKS! Very very excited. I can do ANY math calculation and this app will solve it in a flash! Great for when it comes to doing calculus problems. Thank you developers for making this app free! Best math calculation app ever!

Almost perfect! This app is just what I've been looking for! It works like a charm, however could be better. For example, it would be wonderful for there to be an option to receive your answer in fraction form rather than just decimal, and also a feature that shows how to get to the answer (like a show your work, step-by-step sorta thing). Also, it would be awesome if there was a feature to access commonly used equations to save time or prevent someone having to go off memory. :)

It works . 4 Stars because its fun rather than useful It does what it is designed to do well but has limited functionality. What it really needs to be useful is at least output (answer) to clipboard or better still a bank of local memory stores with recall to use these values in subsequent calculations, as is standard with conventional calculators.

Great app ! I can't believe there are such people who would give lower stars just to get the developers to fix the bugs for them. Those ingratitude ingrates. I don't think you can find another similar app like this on the app store.

yea sure it helps you solve questions but no matter how much i try to make it perfect, it reads it wrongly. i tried writing 200, making sure that the numbers were close together but it changed to '2×00' and that happened at least 5 times until i gave up.
