more than a calculator for iPhone, iPad

Posted: October 24, 2012 in Mathematics

I have always wanted to have a powerful math software like Matlab or Maple on my iPhone.  I did have wolframalpha installed in my iPhone, but wolframalpha can’t handle basic programming like maple does.  In maple, you can write a for loop to generate a sequence and while loop to do iterative calculation.  Three weeks ago when I was casually browsing on youtube, I accidently bump into a video showing an iOS app called “MathStudio”.  It looks promising, it has a functionality similar to Maple.  you can do symbolic manipulation like factoring polynomials, solving equations (even ODE), integration, summation, graphing, and more.  I really like the interface.  To check out the demo of the app, you can click the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XebH_p7reTk.  The app isn’t free.  It costs $19.99 USD.  It is a nice investment if you need to do more than a highschool arithmetic on the road quickly with an iPad or an iPhone.
