• Two entry modes, Standard and Formula. Standard mode emulates traditional calculators. Formula mode takes care of the order of operations for you. You enter a mathematical expression, complete with operators and parentheses (brackets), tap the = button, and the expression is evaluated.
• The entire app's feature set is accessible to VoiceOver users (using standard or touch typing input styles) and Switch Control users.
• Unique to this app is an Enhanced VoiceOver Speech mode that pronounces large numbers and formula with natural language rather than one digit at a time.
• Supports entry and display of Braille on supported Bluetooth devices (thanks to assistance from the Washington State School for the Blind.)
• Numeric formatting of results: Max fraction digits (default), fixed fraction digits (useful for currency calculations), and max significant digits (useful for science and engineering lab work), plus international formatting.
• Trigonometric, hyperbolic, logarithmic, permutations, combinations, factorial, powers, roots, percent and bit-wise operations, conversion between hexadecimal and decimal, random numbers.
• Full support for fractions (simple and mixed), conversion to and from decimal, fraction reduction, and use of fractions with all operators.
• Easy access to basic calculator functions, for those who rarely use scientific operations.
• Paper log feature, designed particularly for classroom use. Calculations can be recorded with a timestamp to be viewed and emailed.
• iPads get a user interface designed to make use of the large screen area, with Split-view and Slide-over support.
• iPhones and iPod Touches get a user interface designed for the smaller screen. This includes large, easy to read scientific buttons, accessed on a scrolling panel. All the features of the iPad version are included in the smaller design.

Customisable for each level of vision:
• Normal to low vision: Large, clear buttons with optional speech.
• Low vision: High contrast display mode, with optional speech.
