Pocket Slide Rule Expert
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
When it comes to nerd street cred, having a slide rule is not enough. You need to know how to use it!
Hence, Pocket Slide Rule Expert. This has the style of a classic rule, including great precision, but can also show you how to DO calculations. Learn simply by watching auto-slide-rule mode.
Select from 19 different basic operations, including:
-Multiplication and Division
-Squares, Cubes, arbitrary powers
-Logarithms, both natural and base 10
-Trigonometric and reverse trig functions
Think you can't perform precise calculations using a touch screen? Not at all! Try the newly-added "brakes" button. By holding it down, you can move the cursor and slider with extreme precision.
Are you a power user? Then check out the 'Snaps.' With the click of a button, quickly save a slider position -- and reuse it time and time again. Multiply by the square root of 2 a lot? Make a button for it!
Speed, accuracy, and a teacher right there with you.
What's New in Version 1.7
-Cursor sliding bug fixed
I've always missed using a slide rule. This app brings back good memories. It's accurate, easy to use, especially with a built in help wiz. I like the looks, ths speed & also the brakes. Clear graphics, easy to read, just a VERY NICE app to have on your phone to learn how things were done "Back in the day"! Thank you very much!! A++++
Versalog rule, lots of the best scales. Works smoothly. (Just noticed that swiping at the top moves the cursor quickly, even when it is offscreen. )
