Best CAS for Android! Started using this after Octave port became nagware. It takes a while to get used to but is breeze once you get to know the commands and syntax. The manual is very helpful and have quite a few examples for almost all the commands. Since the outputs are rendered using MathJax, you can export the output to LaTeX. This makes it great companion for compiling TeX documents on the go. Kudos to the developer for bringing Maxima to Android and keeping the spirit of open source! Much appreciated.
Just what I needed. It's of great use. Thanks to the Developing team. But No update since 1 year? There are some bugs and fixes are needed. App works great, No doubts about it. Just in case you people are planning on making it better: 1) the Graphs plotting part needs the most fixes. It's not user friendly at all. No pinch to zoom etc etc. 2) Manual is not easy to understand. One can learn commands only by looking at the examples. So it's all Hit-and-learn. 3). I don't know it's just me but session saving part doesn't work.
Very usefull Love the detailed included manual. And the best is that it is free, very usefull in third world countries where some people want to learn and experiment more but lack the funds to buy a top end calculator. Billiant mathematical software like Matlab is pushed in Universities so adapting to the new way of entering commands in Maxima might prevent some users moving. Schools should introduce this free mathamatical tool as part of their curriculum as a lot of people in Africa have phones to load this app.
Maxima is a fully-featured CAS available for at least 3 decades on PC. I was pleasantly surprised when they said there is an android version now. Finally, my android device can be used not only to watch cute cats on youtube, hooray!
It's very good. I erroneously get into the problem, that if I try to enter a complex system of equations with Hacker's Keyboard on my phone in portrait orientation, some sort of keyboard entry error results in an empty solution set. But then the same apparent problem gets solved fine in landscape. :-)
Partly Works In Huawei Ascend 2. Commands work but can't get anything out of Dropbox. HuawieA2 has /sdcard0/download/ and so Maxima can't seem to find it after 'export'. So there seems to be no way to save the work or transfer it. Otherwise it would be good tool.
