Customer Reviews

  • I love this app!

    by bread2992

    I love this app. Although more complex equations are better suited for other programs, I use this app constantly for really quick one-step calculations that I would normally scribble down in the margins or the corners of the page. This app is awesome because it enables you to make simple rapid calculations that you would normally jot down on a napkin or in the margin somewhere, right on your ipad. It's the format that makes it choice-- you can quickly and very accurately (no matter how bad your writing is, this app recognizes your writing perfectly) get results in seconds on a virtual whiteboard.

  • Wonderful

    by L1L 61RL

    This thing is amazing. Don't have to look for buttons and don't have to worry whether or not the calculator knows how to solve your problem. It's amazing and I highly recommend it.

  • Awesome calculator!

    by Idhsbiahwbxkcisneb

    Makes writing more complicated problems a LOT easier… and to the person who said it’s not helpful because when you want to “X” it thinks you’re trying to multiply — so use a different letter then, there’s 25 other ones for you to chose from.

  • Awesome

    by Gabsssssssssssssssss:)

    Its awesome it does all my math for me

  • A little bit of help

    by Forseti48

    You should make it easier to make Numbers and you should update it So you can get more erasers

  • SO COOL!

    by Jackhammer341

    When I first downloaded this app for school, it became such a common use for my math and equations homework. It makes equation writing a snap, and is great at recognizing the numbers and symbols I write. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who needed to solve quick, easy equations for all math things related. Keep up the good work!

  • Ignore haters

    by Dufaldorf

    Some people are giving this one star because it wont do their homework for them. This app is AMAZING, so ignore those people. You can type in something and it accepts horrible handwriting like mine. If you do something like 2=5, it will have a side note saying to subtract 3 from 5. This app is great; definite download.

  • Good enough to finish my homework.

    by The Foxfeather from the north

    My school is using this for calculations as most scientific calculators are expensive and it does do they job. However, long problems do require pauses and the calculator immediately begins to interpret the symbols which brings disruption in my work. Nevertheless, if the creators listen to the reviews and fix these problems, I am sure that the app will bring in more users.

  • Perfect

    by Yangyang Huang

    It is perfect for my iPad. And love the notifications because sometimes good apps are recommended.

  • Outstanding

    by ShucksYes

    I am a application analyst for a software company. My job is to analyze reported issues by users and then determine if it is a software issue or a user generated issue. I use this app for comparing index file sizes, data values whether accounting inventory counts etc, and so forth and so on. When doing the math I am able to save the calculations used into my notes. Then later if I suspect an error I can go back, review my notes and the math calculations performed to make sure I didn't have entry problem. Bottom line, you will love it no matter what use it for.

  • Needs to do simple algebra

    by Vyuygvygvygvuvhghgcfgcggtyug

    Come on guys if you can make all this why not have variables available at least. You can do it I believe in you. (:

  • thanks

    by aJayersz

    super neat app that saves time

  • Beautiful app

    by 7302629361

    Works perfectly

  • Okay

    by Luis oliden

    It could use some fixing

  • So original

    by Aldohip

    I like it! So easy to use it!

  • Best Calculator ever!!

    by Banjo1515

    This calculator is amazing! It picks up the fractions and order of operations. totally get it

  • Cool

    by Dr goody from Manchester

    Not perfect, but I go here now -- instead of the host of conventional calculators..

  • Great

    by thabish14765

    This is great I love it!

  • Great help.

    by Gagnam psy guy

    This app is way more advanced than regular calculators and much more easy to use! :D

  • Best Calculating app out there!

    by SellyStew

    This app is VERY helpful. I use it with my math work and the numbers are accurate. Not to mention my sloppy handwriting is easily recognized. If you need something to help you in class I recommend this app, as I'm currently in Geometry and use this app every day.

  • Disappointing

    by Arj in charge

    This app is bad for those like me with bad handwriting. It struggles to correctly understand what I am writing. Also big handwriting like mine makes it difficult to fit everything into one line. I recommend a normal calculator for those people like me.

  • piece of crap

    by Cowgoesmoo2

    For noobs and people who aren't desperate for a real, useful calculator.

  • Terrible app

    by Mia456

    There's a bug in this app that won't let me use the number 180, it always shuts down. I hate it.

  • Cannot download/install

    by NotHaveOne

    Would like to try it, but it does not install!

  • Annoying

    by Jmmlax12

    App can't read a lot of stuff and when I want it to be smaller it always takes up too much of the screen. Also when I try and delete part by swiping over it it always makes wired lines or dots and I have to start all over.

  • No help

    by Big daddy long dikkk

    Didn't really help me. Doesn't let you solve for x.

  • 5*****

    by Vuesan

    It's manageable, it's just like writing on the blackboard . Five stars that you deserve .

  • Good app

    by mbball28

    Overall, it's a good app. Once you have everything written, it works great. However, it's a little tough to get the app to recognize decimal points. It had a good edit function to the problem though.

  • inaccurate

    by Rellite

    I can't even do simple subtraction because it reads the minus sign as a division, and moves things wherever it thinks they should go, not deciphering what I've actually written. most frustrating piece of math I've ever come across.

  • Great!

    by anthony_skywalker619

    Keep it up and it can improve!

  • Cool to use

    by Ryo tran

    Great great great

  • 5****

    by Napre

    It is the best one because I can use my touch pen to write and find the answer instantly.

  • Wow!

    by Josh formerly of Lawrence

    This app is not only useful but it's fun! I don't have to hunt for function buttons. More than that my 4th grader saw it and started doing math of his own accord! One down side is you tend to run out of room on longer equations. Overall this is very very cool!

  • Pretty good

    by Marylkaaa

    This app is amazing. It does calculations that you can't do on a normal calculator. It helps a lot with math homework

  • Palm rejection does not work

    by Jeremy-zh

    Please fix this like Penultimate did. Other than this, it's a great app

  • Good but...

    by Andrew3566676

    It's good in the fact that it can be very useful for certain things but you NEED to add an ALGEBRA FUNCTION when ever I try to put X in it thinks that I'm trying to multiply. Please fix this!!!!

  • Works great.. Sometimes

    by graememeatsix

    It worked great but now it won't even give me an answer without crashing.

  • No variables

    by Ghofuy

    Cool app, but I wish there were variables. Still my favorite calculator I have ever used.

  • Quite simple

    by Phaphane23

    Really accurate.

  • An average Joe

    by No app ad-man

    A rocket scientist might be limited by this app but this thing has genuine wow factor for the average Joe. --So much more fluid and efficient than any key-tapping device. Here, and now, we're witnessing the future. Simply mind blowing for tech savvy types today just old enough to remember school without computers let alone handheld devices. Stellar achievement.

  • Nice

    by MARINE672

    Coolest calculator ever !!!

  • Amazing App

    by NoodlesAndFudge

    So helpful! So user friendly and fast! Recommended it to so many people! Such a good app!

  • Fun App

    by jgrosklags

    Great app. My kids 9 and 13 both like to use it. They like that they can see the whole problem with the solution. They try to guess the answer before it appears. It is also amazing for complex equations. Lots of fun to use.

  • Awesome!!!

    by Gadgetcoolman

    This app is really helpful for me. It made pre algebra so much easier.

  • Great app needs ios 7 update

    by Guinness World Destroyer

    Great app it just needs an iOS 7 update that's all

  • Secant, Cosecant, Cotangent?

    by Akash B

    Well I am giving this a four stars rather than five stars for two reasons, first, it does not have sec(), csc(), and cot(). Second, it still has the iOS 6 look and feel. This app is otherwise great but those two features would make it perfect!

  • Awesome, but needs one feature

    by SilvyLAK

    This is a great app for when you need to see the number in front of you, instead of them disappearing after totaling them up on a calculator. For instance, on a regular calculator, if you are entering measurements to help you center something (like a bed) on a wall, then first you'd enter the feet x 12 to get the measurement in inches. Then you'd subtract the width of the bed, and then divide by 2, which will give the the distance between the corner of the wall and the ends of the bed. So, say we are working with a 10' wall. And say the bed is 40" wide. So it would be 10x12=120 then 120-40=80 then 80/2=40. This is where the corners of the bed will be along the wall. But let's say you misleads urea the bed, and it's really 60" wide since the calculator now only shows your last total, you have to start all over. Which isn't a huge deal, but this app changes that. But you first need to know how math and the order of operations work. First you'd start with writing 10x12 and if you pause, it will give your your length in inches, 120. Then, where the app out in the equal sign, you can write over that with - 40 and it will give you a new total. Here's where it gets tricky. In order to find where the edges of the bed will be, you have to divide by 2. But if you just put /2 in there, your answer will come out wrong because of the order of operations. Writing 10x12-40/2 will be calculated as (10x12) - (40/2). So you have to write in your own parenthesis, like this (10x12-40)/2 and the answer is 40. This is a great little app, especially if you need to rework things several times, and make changes to the numbers without having to start all over. However, if you try to do a second calculation on the same screen as the first, then it thinks you are working with fractions, and puts the top numbers on top and the bottom numbers on the bottom of the fractions. It would be really nice if this could handle at least two or three separate calculations, so as not to end up with really long complicated number sentences. **Any typos are victims of auto correct, and because the review text box goes below the keyboard scree on the ipad, so after a certain amount, I can't see what I'm typing.**

  • Coolio

    by Tfgyyui

    Very good app. Much less time consuming for me because I have a stylus and I just write what the problem is and it solves it. Amazing.

  • It's good for a lot of things, but just not alegabra, so not really a help for me

    by TeeTee Tiller

    It's a smart idea and really unique, but if you need to use algebra I would not suggest it, because when ever you do a x it things it's a multiplication sign, and any letter you try to use, it uses it as something else, and it's irritating. I like it but, I need to solve alegabra problems. Please let people be able to do alegabra problems on it!

  • Good, but has problems.

    by Adam Espinosa

    Seems to crash on overflow (which is admittedly hard to do), and the trig functions are incorrect at and past 2pi (radians of course).

  • Mixed Numbers

    by BlueBananas2

    It's really good and works well, just add mixed numbers!!!

  • Awesome!!!

    by BloodNsunshinE

    easy to use and it does more than I hoped for!

  • Wonderful, I love it!

    by lordadamson01

    But please please add, permutations and combinations :)


    by ZombieRamboMC

    This is soo helpful. Never would have thought this would have existed!

  • Fantastic Concept

    by Kelleyann771997

    This is something I thought would be cool since I first saw the ipad introduced years ago. It's great that it is really here, kind of makes me wish I was still in HS math just for the cool factor. As great as the concept is, other commenters make some valid points... A lot of us need much more than 3 decimals, and it seems appears the decimals are truncated rather than rounded. If we could get some functional notation incorporated as well, say, to input f(x)=(3x-1)^2-4 | x=2 or if we could put underneath f(2)= and have it then calculate that point, this app would be truly epic. If this app is only meant to replace the basic algebraic calculators, then it has done so very well from the 2 or 3 minutes I've played around with it. That said, I see far more potential for this app than just that basic utility, and hope the developers go to that level.

  • Smooth as Silk

    by Araf_raZkr


  • Correct Way to Use This App

    by Smallelf

    Ok. To solve -1^2, you type it in like this. (-1)^2. To solve for 2x+10=20, write it like this. 2( )+10=20. It will then place a 5 in the parenthesis. So x=5.

  • Needs to be more precise

    by Bloxbuilder89

    The strokes need to be more precise. Whenever I try to delete something, it will usually make a fraction, subtract, or make the number a negative number. It also has trouble with mixed fractions.

  • Calculator

    by Kuen571

    This script calculator give me a great result, perform very good.

  • Best app ever!

    by The line ranger

    Awesome app!!!

  • Bad and ineffective

    by Asdfghtyik

    This app cannot do any easy problems at all. Waste of storage .

  • 5 Star Rating!!! :D

    by Hannah Mowry

    This app is amazing!!! Best calculator in the world! ;3 Great job!

  • Annoying and unhelpful

    by mahomiebelieber17

    I try to plug in the equation (1+0.045/12)^180 and it goes +? next to it like I'm supposed to add something else. Clearly it's an easy equation that can be solved without adding anything else and it a EXTRMELY annoying how it doesn't just solve it. 1 star, fix this!

  • Math is awesome with this!!!

    by Dubiorguwycyr

    I love to draw now. It's so much more fun to do. Everyone should have this app!

  • Sci calc

    by Ishant93

    What if you can take a picture of an equation and the app will solve it.

  • calculator

    by Timothy Gallagher

    This stupid app crashes whenever I try to enter .99 to the 100th power. Don't ask why I need to do this calculation.

  • Every Student's Best Friend

    by Confused Player1837383

    I'm currently a Freshman in high school, and I've been using this app for about 2 years now. It's the greatest thing ever! It allows you to write out your whole equation, unlike a regular calculator, where you can only do pieces at a time. Plus, the fact the app uses NO ADVERTISEMENTS, is a blessing. I would recommend this to anyone with an iOS device that is in school.

  • Get it

    by Gamer1234!

    It doesn't matter if you have bad handwriting.

  • Terrible

    by Marcellus98

    Terrible calculator I put radicals in there it would give me a number not a another radical! Mathway is way better then this garbage!

  • All apps should be like this!

    by tpjm

    Visionary, brilliant in its simplicity!

  • Kaboom

    by Alitekken

    Realy great app

  • Wrong

    by So glad!

    -1 squared is NOT -1! And it will not recognize exponents of -1 beyond 3. Or any fractional exponents. Cool technology, but not reliable.

  • Hellooo

    by Rochy

    Can you out simplifying on there and not divide the fractions because this will help me with my math stuff thanks ☺️

  • Worst app ever!!!!!

    by Jr. Rubie

    This 'calculator' is worthless. You might as well use a regular calculator. It never does wat u want it to!! VERY FRUSTRATING.

  • Great

    by prubslubs23

    Best idea ever, way better than some other calc apps. I wish it looked a bit prettier though. Interface is kinda drab. But it's efficient and detects my messy handwriting pretty well so

  • Bad because....

    by bob larrycrap

    This app is horrible because it won't make fractions or let u do algebra. The only thing about the app that I like is that u can draw on it. So over all this is a really bad app. DONT BUY THIS APP!!!!!!!!!

  • Good but needs something...

    by Awesomeguy121212

    Great app but I would give 5 stars if there were variables. Please add variables in the next update because question marks aren't working well.

  • A handy tool

    by jungy.huang

    This is an amazing tool. It helps people doing calculation quickly in a very intuitive way.

  • Terrible App

    by Alyssa12801

    This is a terrible app. I need to use it with variables and it doesn't recognize them and changes them to numbers. It's very slow. It also changes my sevens to ones and vise versa. It's a great idea but needs much work. Do not get this app!

  • Good

    by flo colon

    Nice app very helps for me nice!

  • Amazing

    by itunes23

    A must have app. Truly amazing.

  • F for failure

    by theZslayer

    Our teacher allowed us to use calculators on our test and I used My Script and I got a bad score. I took the test again and it showed that by doing it without a calculator I had actually done better than before. My Script is wrong and inaccurate for most algebra, but it can be helpful for quick math. Thank you , Waller

  • the app is jacked up

    by Jeannie Johnson

    myscript calculator can only multiply certain amount of numbers and its inconvenient to my class because we have used that app a couple of times on a test or quiz so you have to fix that.

  • Really cool

    by Umm cool.

    Well, it's almost there to be 5 stars I really suggest adding letters ? When I put "C" it thinks it's "("

  • Hope to see iOS 7 support

    by @chaseagiles

    It is an amazing app, but I would like it better if it better supported the iOS 7 user interface

  • Essential for any teacher.

    by DatNewDude

    I don't normally write reviews but this app is amazing. I teach calculus in a high school and let my students leave their answers as are thematic expressions. This tool lets me quickly calculate with out having to worry about using parentheses. I have shown this app to many of my fellow teacher friends and they love it as we'll. Really a phenomenal app for anyone who does long parentheses heavy calculations.

  • Awesome

    by Ashe_edward

    Thanks to this app I was able to pass math


    by Need more skins

    This is a fun app to use, but it can be kind of distracting if you have a giant math packet due the next day and you're so stressed that you go and fool around on myscript calculator. Otherwise I find it very easy to use and it even does trig stuff. Overall you should get this app (Otherwise I wouldn't be wasting my time writing a review if I thought it wasn't worth while).

  • 5/5

    by EpicRemixMan12

    this app is so great, you should charge people for this! lol, jk... no seriously, please don't.
