MyScript Calculator is a free app that offers a unique spin on the traditional punch-enter style calculator. Instead of tapping numbers and symbols into this calculator, a user writes them using his/her own finger. The calculator is a simple ‘graph paper’ background with no buttons or clutter, so it’s imperative that users have some comprehension of the numbers, symbols, and calculations they would like to use and do. Some minor potential hangups are the lack of a zoom/reduce screen feature for longer calculations and the potential for the app to misread a user’s handwriting. Simple adjustments like left hand input and decimal place value are available in the settings sub-menu at the top left corner of the screen. There is also a simple video tutorial included for new users. Finally, this app is for relatively simple maths calculations only. It does not accept algebra or calculus inputs and is best associated with a simple calculator rather than a tell-all of mathematical mysteries.
MyScript Calculator is suitable for Upper Primary and Secondary.
