Graphic Calculator Emulator
Most of all graphing calculators applications this days still have -8bit like- low-res monochrome screens. Since tablets and smart phones are basically general purpose computing devices, why shouldn’t we have a nice graphing calculator on board too?
XDA member ZeroManArmy shows Graph 89; an emulator for Texas Instrument ROM images. You need to have the software off a TI-89 for it to work, but once you have copied the image to your phone or tablet, you essentially have the real deal on your precious Android.
