Q1. How do I create my own custom keyboards?
A1. Touch the keyboard icon to go into Keyboard Edit Mode. Touch keys to make it any one of three different key sizes (space must be available to the right for a double-size key). Hold and move a key to reposition it. Hit the left wall with a key to blast it through to the Trig keyboard. Press "Cust 1,2,3" to Save. Press Again to Rename the button. Touch the left-side black box to exit Keyboard Edit Mode.
Q2. How do I use the Base Conversion key?
A2. Follow these guidelines:
► Tap the base conversion key to rotate among Decimal, Hex, Octal, & Binary keyboards, or, hold down on the key to select from a menu of the four.
► Right-handers should hold down on the right side of the base conversion key. Left-handers on the left. The menu will pop up on the left or right side appropriately.
► Select the 'D2' (Default 2) keyboard if you do not want the base conversion key on your main keyboard.
Q3. How do I use the % key?
A3. There are two ways to use the % key:
► 1st: Obtain the % of number: Press '200 % 5 ='. Answer will be '10'. PaperCalc took 5% of 200.
► 2nd: The % of a number is used in the operation on the number: Press: '200 - 5 % ='. Answer will be '190'. PaperCalc subtracted 5% of 200 from 200.
Q4. How do I access and use the 10 memory locations?
A4. Press the 'mem' button first. Then select one of the yellow keys (clear, store, recall, add, sub). Finally, press the memory location (0-9 buttons) to operate on.
What's New in Version 3.80.00
1. Repaired degree (o) and radian (rad) symbols on paper tape
2. The 'Grab Number' menu has been improved. Insertion of a number into your calculation is easier than ever.
Love the the paper tape -- comes in handy when looking back entries. Clear, easy to use. What more can you ask?
Love this app! I use it everyday!
Useful for Programmers
I use the hexadecimal features quite a bit when debugging software written in assembler or machine code. The calculator "tape" let's me scroll back through previous calculations, and copy ("grab") terms to use in new calculations.
