Big numbers, keeps history on virtual "paper tape"
I love this! The keys are large and easy to use. I like the feature of a virtual "paper tape" that records your computations as you go, so you can look down at them for reference.
I only wish the cheery "Hello!" that greets me every time I open the app would disappear automatically when I begin keying numbers in. It's not like I'm going to have an alpha conversation with it; why should it be so hard to start calculating?
But that's a minor point. So far, all the functions that I've used have worked smoothly. The "+\-" is right there at the ready, so I can subtract a larger number from a smaller for convenience, as it fits the flow of calculations, and then use the result, made positive, for the next calculation.
Like the look and ease of use. I've only compared it to a few other calculator apps, so my knowledge is limited; but I felt I need look no further once I decided. Caveat: I do mainly bookkeeping, etc., not heavier-duty scientific calculations these days
Simple but Really Good Calculator
I need a basic calculator and this one fits me. Most of my needs are checkbook balancing and fund raising reports, so easy to set up.
I have really used the tape feature a lot for bookkeeping for a group I am in. The option of labeling each item on tape is especially handy. I like being able to send to desktop to print a nice looking list for files if needed.
Great calcular with electronic paper tape
This is a great calculator because of its ease of use and the paper tape. It's easy to correct mistakes when balancing my checkbook, I can see all the entries I've made on the electronic paper tape. So if it doesn't balance, I can read all the entries and easily find and correct the error. Thanks for this great program.
