Enter a dice or other mathematical expression and view distribution graphs, statistics (mode, median, mean, etc.), comparisons, and rolls. Save, load, and print expressions for your NPC, character, or 2011 tax year. This is not just a 'click-n-roll' app. NoDice has the breadth of a scientific calculator, the usability of an adding machine, and the depth of the Gamer's Multiverse. Finally learn your chances against Cthulhu, finish your homework, or reconcile your checkbook. You decide.
ROLE PLAYING & OTHER GAMES: NoDice is the master die, displaying all outcome probabilities as well as the actual roll; pitting dice against one another to determine dominance as well as statistical probability thereof, and supporting save and load features for lists of complex dice expressions. NoDice is the Gamer's and Game Master's virtual dice bag.
ADDING MACHINE AND CALCULATOR: NoDice saves calculations for later review, recall, and printing, supporting basic arithmetical operations (+, -, *, /) as well exponents, roots, logarithms, trigonometry, and comparison functions.
MATHEMATICS: NoDice calculates simple probabilities, includes standard mathematical functions (exp, ln, sin, abs, etc), comparison functions (min, max) and constants (pi, ex), scientific notation, and user-defined constants. Compare probability expressions to each other and combine them with mathematical calculations to create sophisticated probability models (as long as they can be expressed with dice)!

Major time saver for figuring odds
For those who dabble in creating, understanding, or modifying old-fashioned games, working out the probability for different dice rolls can be a chore at best. NoDice handles the computations for you, so all you need to do is specify the kind of dice, how many, and what the opposing dice roll will be (if any). This application is well worth the cost if you you use it.
