Numix Calculator Lets You Add in Material Design Style
Just as was the case yesterday when we talked about unit conversion apps, there are dozens upon dozens of calculator apps available for Android. Due to this vast selection, there are different apps to pretty much fill any niche imaginable within the category. If you want a slightly more advanced calculator than the stock offering, you’re good to go. Want one that floats? Look no further. Want to calculate your wealth? No problemo. Want to figure out how many more miles you can drive before you’re left calling AAA? Again, no big deal. And if you want a calculator whose actual purpose is to hide your stash of naughty images, we’ve got you covered once again. With so many options already available, you’d think that there would be no room for a new calculator to jump in–but you’d be wrong.
If you’re looking for a good looking calculator that follows Google’s Material Design UI guidelines as much as possible, you may want to check out Numix calculator by XDA Forum Member paolorotolo. This calculator is based on the stock calculator app from CyanogenMod, but with a massive UI overhaul to make it much easier and more rewarding to use.
In addition to looking pretty, this calculator is highly functional. It allows you to swipe from the left and right of the screen to access advanced function panes, as well as use the action overflow button in the top left of the input box. It even lets you plot your results when required. And best of all, it’s fully open source, with all the relevant code available on the developer’s Github.
If you’ve been looking for a stylish, Material Design compliant calculator app, look no further. Head over to the Numix Calculator application thread to get your calculator on.
