Although a calculator is one of those taken for granted pre-installed apps that you are likely to find on most devices, the bundled apps are often quite simplistic and useful only for simple calculations. Those of you who might need something a little more heavy duty are certainly not short of choice when it comes to finding a more capable number crunching application. And if that’s something that you do need, you might want to check out aCalculator by XDA Recognized Developer zFr3eak.
aCalculator is a simple, yet very functional and stylish alternative to the bland OEM offerings. In addition to the basics, it supports a number of math operations likely to boggle the mind of a numerical plebeian such as myself. Most notably:
- sin, cos, tan, asin, acos, atan
- pi, x², %, √
- ln, e^x, log
There are also other useful features such as a history, storage for up to five variables, support for radians and degrees, and more. The UI of the application is clean and stylish, with both a Holo dark and light theme and support for all sizes of device from phone through to tablet. Yes that’s right, I’m acknowledging phablets as a category all of its own now.
The developer hopes to continue development of the app and add even more operations, as well as support for graph view, so please do check this one out and offer some feedback if this is something that you’re likely to find useful. aCalculator is 100% ad-free and available in the application thread._________
