Works very well. I just have 1 thing to say. In the app, the section where the function history is shown seems far too large. And the buttons are too small. Perhaps you could implement some features in other calculators to fix this. For example, some calculators have you swipe down from the answer bar to view your function history. Also, there seems to be no way of using subscript like on the computer version. Although it is present in the graphing calculator app. Also, the median function is missus in this app where it is present in the graphing calculator app. And I would like to suggest a function for the mode of a set of data.

Very good, but could have some improvements
This app is very good so far. However, here are my suggestions. “Expression open, “needs to be announced by voiceover whenever clicking into an active expression. Braille mode should not have to be toggled on and off in settings when using a braille display. of course, I am using an iPhone 8 plus. I have not downloaded the graphing calculator app yet, but I will do so when I can. I see this being helpful for my future students, and a replacement (if not an add-on) to the Orion TI 38 talking graphing calculator, and the Orion TI 34 talking scientific calculator.

Layout funky, ads horrible...
For anyone who has the muscle memory from using 10-key, this will infuriate you...and let’s not forget the slide-up ad that just always seems to know when you’re going for the ‘equals’ key, and pops right on up in front of it. I could go on and on about the ads, but that is the theme of these reviews, so not necessary. There are multiple other apps I would recommend before this one, but for educational purposes, Desmos is the most thorough and accredited...and exponentially better than this one.

My fourth evaluation finally wins!
I was looking for a calculator that would let me do some basic algebra, then take the arccos of the result and show the value in degrees. I thought it was a pretty simple ask but three other calculators failed me. Finally I found this one and my problem is solved. I’m docking one star because the UI got a little confused when I wanted to wrap a whole fraction In parentheses. It assumed I wanted to put them around the numerator or denominator. I fiddled around and eventually got it to work. In all it looks like a solid app.

Great, except…
The functionality is wonderful, but I miss two things I learned to expect back in the days I used my TI-89 Titanium: seeing past calculations after closing the app and reopening it, and being able to pull the results of a previous calculation down & build on them. Instead, I need to write the equation in full every time I want to see it or build on it.

Hit or miss
This is a great app which I've been using for almost 3 years now. One thing that I HATE about this app is that the buttons are so small, you may think that you pressed something but no .. the buttons are so small that it didn’t sense it. Although it doesn’t seem like a big deal, it can be really, really annoying especially when you’re working on long calculations. Other than, it’s okay.

Great App, Missing a great feature.
You guys should definitely look into a way to have a “Save Equation” feature or something like the “Saved Graphs” section you have in the Desmos Graphing app. That would be amazing, even if it was an option for people only if they’re signed in I would download this app just for that (if i hadn’t aalready).

Great Features, poor UI
Wish they UI was more user friendly. Also I wish the app would remember my settings. I try to keep the font in large and color scheme as dark, but every time I open the app it defaults to light theme small font. Other than that nice features for a scientific calculator.

Very high quality calculator
I’ve looked at calculators on the App Store that had all functions like- fractions, exponents, and algebra equations, but was not able to find one. So, I’ve found Desmos. Since I’m going into the 8th grade, I need a calculator that had all functions. The Apple stock calculator is very good, but it doesn’t have fractions and exponents. Thank you for this app!

Would Recommend, 100%
Sometimes my iphone calculator doesn’t work that well and ends up throwing off my answer entirely. Desmos makes things really simple and can prepare you for the future when you have to take state tests with it. Every high school student should have it. Thank you, Desmos 🙏🏻💗

Desmos is the recommended calculator in my Full Sail University College Math course. It’s extremely convenient the way you can view all of your previous calculations and can see exactly where you messed up if you typed the wrong thing.

Almost There
This is a great app, a standard scientific calculator with almost all the functions you will need. One complaint I have is that there is no log_(n) function. It’s very annoying to have to write loga/logn every time I want a base that is not 10. Please add this! Other than that, a great app, I use it all the time.

It’s better than most calculator apps I’ve used that has many reviews and higher stars! You can solve ANY problem. I don’t see any problems with the keyboards you just have to get use to it I’ve only been using it for 1 day and I love it! I recommend it to everyone.

Pretty good
This is the best calculator I have found for iOS yet. I have two relatively minor complaints, though. First it would be nice if the loading screen was eliminated. Certainly we don’t need to wait to load a calculator, do we? Secondly the options should be persistent. I like the larger button size and don’t want to have to adjust it each time.

Easy to use
It’s way easier and more efficient than non digital calculators and any other scientific calculator I could find. It’s easy to navigate and has all the functions that you’d need in basic college level math.

Great except buttons are small
I really like the layout and functionality of this calculator. I would just like to see the buttons bigger as most of the screen is used for past calculations. I think maybe half screen for buttons and half for calculations would be much better! Thanks!

My favorite scientific calculator
I was very glad to find the Desmos Scientific calculator in the App Store. It has a wide range of usage and is very helpful. However my biggest complaint would be the buttons are too small. They should have an option of turning the screen horizontal and have the buttons be bigger

I would like to be able to save the preferences for the dark theme and large font instead of changing the interface every time I use the app. Still the best calculator for iPad just add that settings function please.

Beautiful, wonderful, amazing calculator
This is better than any of the other calculator apps. A far cry from the one that’s automatically on iPhones. Upgrade to this app. Delete all other calculator apps. You won’t regret it.

Close to perfect
This is the best scientific calculator that I’ve found. One thing that can be improved is if history remains after the app was closed and restored when it’s opened again.

I love this calculator and use it all the time. I was wondering if you could add a feature that gives us the ability to save things to memory though. Whenever I close the app everything is lost.

Almost perfect
If this calculator had an easy, one button press, way to add *10^ it would be perfect. Whether it writes it as EE or *10^ I don’t care, but that is such a frequent thing to do in many sciences it baffles me that there is no quick way to do it here.

An excellent app to do scientific calculations
This is really an excellent app I tried several other apps on app store. But I found this is an app what I really need. This is easy to use. Scientific calculations can be done very easily.

There's no way to use the answer from the previous calculation in the new calculation. The history screen is obnoxiously large and cannot be reduced or minimized. This calculator was not intuitive and made it difficult to complete equations that required multiple steps. I deleted this app and decided to look for a better scientific calculator app.

Good, but doesn’t work correct for some problems.
I don’t know how to fix this- but something like 10 (to the power of 9) • 8, the answer will be 8 x 10 (to the power of 9). Just switching the order and symbol (meaning the same thing.) How do I fix this? Thank you

Great app, and no ads!
Every other calculator app has ads, this one doesn’t! One suggestion though is make the keypad bigger. All that open space at the top is a waste of real estate.

Decent app, needs more basic features
This app really needs to have options for displaying the answers in different formats, such as scientific notation, decimal vs fraction notation, etc. I would also love to see an “E” key, a common calculator shortcut for “*10^”, great for scientific calculations.

Everything is great except...
... the keyboard really needs to be larger. Especially because the newer phones like the Xs and Xs Max have a lot of space and the keyboard on this app is optimized for something like the iPhone 5s. Please fix it, I got a plus sized phone for a reason.

reliable but needs design tweaks
For the iPad, please make the keyboard larger so functions are all visible. with the larger display you have the opportunity to display more so users can input faster.
