Amazing. tnx. alas :-( from 21.5.2017 new version named 5.39.1 does not work any more; the installation is NOT completed. What a pity...
I *really* want this app and I know I'll really like it! (I use it on my laptop now.) But it simply won't install. I have a new ASUS tablet running 7.0 Android. I download Maxima, but when I try to install it and select internal or external memory (doesn't matter which), I get the message that it didn't install and I should remove it and try again. After doing that several times, I'm pretty certain this app simply won't work. Don't know why not, but I'm *VERY* disappointed. With prompt and patient support from Honda-san (the author), I was able to install the package on my device. I'm ecstatic! Works great and gives me the most powerful programmable calculator imaginable. Rating is now 5 star!
Maxima is a great tool, and this android port of it -- especially, after recent improvements -- is a great pleasure to have and use on-the-go. Please, keep up the great work!
This is a useless POS. The program might work, I'll never know because the documentation is appalling. If you already know the function names you can use the example function to discover the syntax. And if you don't, you can't. You can spend an hour or two trying to guess how to plot the graph of y=x^2 between -1 and +1 and get absolutely nowhere. Nothing in the manual gives you a clue. Like most free downloads, it's written by, and for, enthusiasts who are functionally illiterate in English and incapable of explaining anything.
Updating-users should back-up maxima-init.mac beforehand, otherwise it's "That rare thing - a really triffic" app.
- Output reuse is implemented. On tapping computation result enters corresponding maxima command.
- Auto completion of maxima commands in command input area is implemented.
- Preference screen is added and can be called from menu. Enabling/disabling of auto completion, Manual language selection, and the font size setting for command input area and latex output can be set here.
- Mathjax menu is disabled for preventing misuse.
