You may recall that a few weeks back—you know, before the KitKat Kraze—we featured a guide by XDA Senior Member SimplicityApks aimed at helping app developers create custom soft keyboard layouts for their apps. While the default keyboard layouts may work in the vast majority of apps, it certainly doesn’t work everywhere. Case in point: his own application, FunctionCapture.
As its name would suggest, FunctionCapture is a math plotting and analysis tool. The app allows you to capture up to 3 functions and save them (or share a picture of their graph output). It is able to draw powers and roots, log operations with any base, and trig functions. It is compatible with common constants like e and pi, and it is able to perform various conversions like rounding, truncating, and getting the absolute value.
As part of its analysis functionality, FunctionCapture is able to find the zero and intersect points, as well as come up with a table of values and more. The premium version is even able to find the extrema and graph in full screen mode.
With all of the capabilities and its efficient interface, FunctionCapture is a must for any advanced math student or anyone who works with various functions in their 9-5. Make your way over to the application thread to give FunctionCapture a shot. And don’t forget to also check out the previously covered guide if you’re developing an app that requires a custom keyboard layout.
