Cube Slide Rule Lite
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
The slide rule (also known as slipstick) is an mechanical analog computer which can perform various scientific calculations. It consist of three linear strips and a sliding cursor and is used for multiplication, division, square, cube, square root, cubic root, trigonometry, logarithm and so on. Slide rules were used for many of years and in some regards can be much more useful than digital calculators.
The CubeSlideRule Lite is an implementation of a slide rule with the most popular logarithmic scales: A [B,Cl,C] D.
The high quality graphics makes it indistinguishable with a real mechanical slide rule, especially on devices equipped with Retina Display.
It can be used as a mechanical slide rule replacement in real engineering calculations.
Also can be used as an educational tool for courser in mathematics.
Simple how to use instructions are conveniently attached on the back side.
What's New in Version 1.1
Names of the scales are visible on the both ends of the slide rule.
Nice app and free.. Would be nice if the clear slider had a magnifier though, the gradations are hard to see.
