FutureStarrA Give Me a Calculator:
What happens when your calculator is no longer just a calculator?
I absolutely love this app, since use it for school and it is just very simple to use while also being able to use more complex equations! My only problem is the fact that I have to pay a monthly fee just to use other calculator features that are on normal calculators is just ridiculous! I understand that you guys want to make money, but do you really, like really need to make people pay a monthly fee just to be able to calculate fractions! I would be absolutely fine if it was a one time fee, but why a monthly fee!? This is one of the top most downloaded calculator apps on the App Store if not the best one, not to mention the little adds at the bottom (not distracting at all) that you make money off of adds which shows you already make quite a bit of money off of more than half a million user, yet you have to go even farther to make me pay for a monthly fee for features in every ordinary high school level calculator! I would rather have to pay 5-7 dollars once for all of the other features instead of being fed off of for multiple years to come of using this app. I would rate this app 5 stars right off the bat if it got rid of the monthly charge and maybe even replaced it with a one time fee. Please address this concern, and thank you so much for your time.At first I had no idea where it came from UNTIL I went to use the calculator and an annoying ad covered the entire screen. Apparently they changed things and instead of a one time $2.99 charge they want $1.49/mo to use the calculator ad free. The little ads at the bottom aren’t bad but the thing that makes it unbearable and the reason why I’m deleting the app after at the very least 5 years is the ads that popup while I’m in the middle if typing which ultimately lead to me clicking on the ad and opening up safari or app store. I don’t like the fact I’m forced to open unwanted ads to god knows what. I don’t want that on my phone. Such a shame. I might have failed math in high school but this calculator is not that important to me to have to deal click on ads because they pop up while I’m typing.
Most pocket calculators do all their calculations in binary-coded decimal (BCD) rather than binary. BCD is common in electronic systems where a numeric value is to be displayed, especially in systems consisting solely of digital logic, and not containing a microprocessor. By employing BCD, the manipulation of numerical data for display can be greatly simplified by treating each digit as a separate single sub-circuit. This matches much more closely the physical reality of display hardware—a designer might choose to use a series of separate identical seven-segment displays to build a metering circuit, for example. If the numeric quantity were stored and manipulated as pure binary, interfacing to such a display would require complex circuitry. Therefore, in cases where the calculations are relatively simple, working throughout with BCD can lead to a simpler overall system than converting to and from binary. (For example, CDs keep the track number in BCD, limiting them to 99 tracks.) (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
